Im sure as EVERYONE knows its hot as HELL all across the country and the northeast is no exception. I have a rest from running day today even though when I woke up at 7am it was only 80 so I debated doing some quick sprints at the track.... lol I didnt. I am going to do an indoor strength workout and get some miles on the bike though.

Grrrr. So Sunday we packed up the car and headed to the state park to do the 10k loop and have a nice day and the rain started 5 miles from home. UGH so we turned around and came home and the coulds went away, the sun came out and we spent the day in the backyard and the kids went swimming. I didnt workout. I felt awful (TOM) so I just took the rest day. I did eat really well though even though I feel ravenous and insane. I could eat my bodyweight in vegan mac and cheese.
M1: Green smoothie w/ hemp protein, water
M2: banana, PB, water
M3: tortilla pizza (whole wheat tortilla), homemade sauce with chickpeas, daiya mozz, fresh basil, salad with oil and vin, water
M4: cut veggies and hummus, water
M5: air poped popcorn with sea salt and pepper (my sunday night treat), water

Monday-
Great day for working out. 44.5 mile bike ride!!! Indoors, my buns are KILLING me. I really just wanted to take out my new jogger and go for a run BUT we had awful thunderstorms and even though I dont mind running in rain, I dont in lightening. So I just planned to do a little on my bike. Now I really am starting to think maybe I can do a tri next year.
I also did about an hours worth of strength training before my bike ride
My food- I know I did good, I ate a variety, (even while biking!) of whole foods. I just dont remember exactly today. I was typing this all out yesterday when then cable/computer went out for a few hours. I had a bad panic attack later on in the day. :/

Today was a rough day emotionally. My hubsand and I just got into it and it hasnt ended yet. Im soooo over it. I was cranky because I didnt work out in the morning, because it was a beautiful sunny day and we didnt get to run and try out the new jogger, my husband missed his doctors appointment and the kids just went crazy.
BUT I made the best of of it and the minute he was out the door for work I did about an hour of strength training/yoga type stuff and then 7 miles on the bike. I feel good.
Food-
daily detox tea, water

M1- fruit salad, almonds, water
M2- brown rice, pintos, salsa, water
M3- veggie burger, water
M4- green smoothie
easy now tea
M5- not sure yet.....

So no matter what I am running tomorrow!!!!

Haha I was right about NO MATTER what I am running. Life threw every single thing it could at me! I woke up and thought it would be a great day, got out of bed, came downstairs was watching the news, having my tea, waking up, ready to get out the door with all 3 kids and hubby by 8am for our 5 mile run. YEAH RIGHT. 17 crazy situations later its 4:45 pm. We are out on the levee FINALLY running. My wonder amazing husband took a vacation day so we could do it.
We ran 5.18 miles in a hour which I am happy with. It was one of my first runs with a jogger. Now that we have 3 children its crazy! Mike pushes the double and I pushed the single. I have taken the double out a few times alone a few years ago but it was only for 2-3 miles. I was pushing my 4 year old daughter and I was so happy my hubby made it through the whole 5 miles :)

Afterwards we came home and I pushed through my ST workout. I did it. I didnt want too but I am so happy I did.
My food wasnt great, like a 6 out of 10. I am getting better forcing myself to eat through stressful times but yesterday was very hard. By 2pm my body was so beat from the anxiety attack I had all day and I hadnt drank my normal amount of water or eaten..... after that Mike made me a meal and I was ok from then on. He really saved my butt yesterday.
I have had to cut ties with 3 close but very negative friends in the last few weeks and it all came to a head yesterday. Now I feel like I am moving back UP.
Ok off to do todays workout.

Today I got up and practiced 15 minutes of yoga while my tea steeped. I did an hour of boxing, including jumping rope, LOTS of shadow boxing, some stuff with the medicine ball, and a cool down. It was fun. I havent boxed in a few weeks and I realized how much I missed it!! Now I have to wait for it to cool down to do my 4 mile run. Probably will go after 4 some time.
So far today I had a tea, water, 1 TBSP PB and a banana..... I need to eat more, I am still not feeling 100%

So I was MIA for a little bit but not because I was slacking, I was actually have found my niche and have been really working my ass off!!
I have discovered spartan racing, warrior dashes and tough mudder. I am like a kid in a candy store. I did my first WOD last week and I am hooked. Everyday I get new WODs in my email and I DO THEM. Even this weekend while out camping.
I have lost about 8-10lbs since last I checked in and nearly all of my clothing fits again. In two weeks my baby will be 6 months old!!! I feel myself getting stronger everyday now. I am doing this right along side marathon training and I have never felt better.
I went to the doctor to make sure I was able to do all this and my bloodwork and EKG came back perfect. So I will update some of my reccent workouts. I am amazed at what I can do.

2 rounds-
run 1 miles
200m bear crawl
straight into a 200m sprint
800m jog c/d
THEN I had to alter the last round because my wrists were killing me (bear crawling is hard) so I did
1 mile run
25 flights (36 steps a piece) of stairs
200m sprint
800m cool down.
