That's why each week I plan out my dinners and workouts.
Breakfasts are usually the same; oatmeal or cereal. Lunch is also typical; leftovers, tuna, or Morningstar buffalo chik'n.
I like to show you guys our "In & Out" planning because it keeps us accountable and it might help you find a system that keeps you on track with your fitness goals. Or it's just fun to know what other people eat! :)
Why "In & Out"? It's the simple equation of weight loss. Calories in vs. calories out. What you eat vs. what you burn. Burn more than you eat and you'll lose weight!
This morning I set out....very excited I might add..to tackle 6 repeat 800's. I've been fired up to run ever since my half marathon and my body has NOT been on the same page.
Last weekend I had a pain on the outside of my knee. Many of my awesome Twitter friends said that it might be my IT band and to foam roll. I've been a rolling fool, but the pain was still there today. I eventually had to throw in the towel around repeat #3. There's no sense in hurting myself when I'm not even training for anything.
I plan to not run until next Monday and roll, roll, roll.
Someone on Twitter also asked the key to remembering to foam roll. My answer:
What do you do when you & your body aren't on the same page? Push or pause?
