I decided to write a post about some of my dinners from this week since I have a half marathon on Sunday. I'm running the rock n roll LA half and honestly I'm on the fence about it :/ I've never done a rock n roll race but for me it's the timing. Fall is crazy at work with the start of school and also football season so trying to train has been rough. I ended up messing up my sciatic nerve and an finally recovered but I'm worried it may come back. However I am super excited about our costumes and I think it will be fun-as long as it's not too hot! And after I am going to Disneyland to celebrate! But anyway, on to the food!
Started last Sunday with steak, asparagus and mashed potatoes. I'm goal is to add a carb to every meal to start my carb stores. I've also never had asparagus before and really liked it! I have another bag in my Fridge. The mashed potatoes used milk and butter and also a whole bag of cauliflower that you could barely taste. I have some of this leftover and will be fueling with it at lunch time tomorrow!
My dinner on Monday. I was stuck at work and had squash, bell peppers and chicken and salad for dinner.
Yum yum! Yay for homemade chili! I had this in the crockpot and then saved some for all my lunches for this week
I don't have dinner for weds and thurs. Me and the boyfriend went out for Mexican so I split that meal. I had rice and beans and enchiladas.
Howver above is my dinner for tonight. Veggies and chicken and rice. The chicken is sweet and sour chicken left over form lunch today and it's pretty good.
Overall I feel like I've added enough carbs to do my body justice. In the morning I'm going to go grab a pumpkin spice latte (RIP-they will be gone so soon!) and also some oatmeal as a treat to myself.
Race day is almost here!
