Moving Right Along

Haven't had much of interest to post, plus I've been doing a lot of traveling! It's gotten the best of me actually... I have a cold! This is the best week for it to happen though because it's a "rest" week in my training. I've been doing a weekday run, tempo or interval run, and a long run of 6-7 miles every week for the last 5 weeks. This week, all I have to do is 3-4 miles a few times (and slooooow). LOVE IT! I need the rest!

I've been spending time lifting weights as well and I'm loving it! I'm still using for these workouts. The workouts are about 45 minutes long and really force me to keep doing strength. Very happy to have that! I can tell I'm getting stronger, which is awesome. I can even see the muscles in my legs and my shoulders developing more. It's great!

My weight is holding steady right now and I'm starting to think my body is at a place that it likes to be. I'm going to keep doing my running and lifting and see what happens. It does feel like my body shape is changing although my weight is about the same. My food has been really good, so I don't think there's much else I could do. Here's my daily eating (I measure everything):

Breakfast: Steel cut oats with dried fruit and walnuts OR a whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter and jam (jam is my weakness!)
Morning snack: one serving of fruit
Lunch: Big salad with local lettuce, tomato, cucumber, 6 kalamata olives, and 3-4 ounces of lean protein with vinaigrette
Afternoon Snack: one serving of fruit
Dinner: lean protein and some kind of high fiber grain, glass of red wine (not everyday)

Okay, must motivate for the day! Hope everyone is happy and healthy out there!
