Week 2 of my 10-Miler training was GREAT. It went something like this:
No, your eyes did not deceive you. I actually did nothing last week. I take that back, I did go to my dance class on Monday, but that works more of my brain than my body. So other than that, I did nothing that would be considered exercise. So many things got in the way this week and I didnâ€™t make much time for myself. Of course this coming week is Thanksgiving so itâ€™s not looking great this week either, but weâ€™ll see. Tomorrow will be unseasonably warm so I just may make it out for an outdoor jog.
Hereâ€™s the training program Iâ€™m â€œfollowingâ€. Day 7 is Monday for me, so that the 2 rest days fall on the weekend:
The good thing is, Iâ€™ve discovered a smoothie mix that I LOVE that has become my daily breakfast. Deena is trying Shakeology, and Iâ€™ve been drinking a similar product, Shaklee. We just like to point out that we donâ€™t support any particular brand or product, so itâ€™s very fitting that weâ€™re both trying two different brands. I chose Shaklee because I have a friend in the neighborhood who sells it so I tried it and I liked the taste, simple as that. I have both the cafe latte and chocolate flavor, and I mix with 1 cup of either skim milk or almond milk and a 1/2 of banana. Sometimes Iâ€™ll add some cinnamon to the cafe latte flavor, or Iâ€™ve substituted the banana for pumpkin added some spices and made it a pumpkin spiced latte. My favorite mix-in for the chocolate is peanut butter. But Iâ€™ve also added some strawberries and peanut butter for a PB&J smoothie. Any way I drink it, I like it because itâ€™s quick to fix, itâ€™s easy, itâ€™s portable, itâ€™s yummy, and it fills me up. The smoothie mix I use is the Shaklee 180 Meal Replacement Smoothie Mix and the description says “Non-GMO soy protein and fiber help keep you feeling full longer, while added leucine helps retain muscle so your metabolism can power on as the inches come off.â€ Iâ€™m not a distributor but Iâ€™m sure they are easy to find!
Maybe by mentioning my smoothie breakfasts, Iâ€™m somehow making myself feel better about not working out this past week. 😉 Not really, but itâ€™s something I wanted to share anyway. Hereâ€™s hoping this coming week “works out” better for me (no pun intended).
