Runner’s Diet – Week of 9/18 Groceries

Birthday week means many things—mostly dining at fancy restaurants and imbibing all the cocktails—but one of them is watching what I eat so I can partake in celebratory eats and drinks guilt-free. 

This week’s groceries:

  • Frozen veggies
  • Protein bars 
  • Frozen waffles 
  • Unsweetened pea protein milk
  • Roasted pepitas
  • Maple almond butter
  • Frozen fried chicken (which aren’t actually that bad when you look at the ingredients list)
  • Ramen (for when cravings inevitably hit)

This week’s game plan (fingers crossed):

  • Breakfast: 2 waffles with almond butter and chia seeds
  • Snack 1: fresh fruit (TBD)
  • Lunch: peas with some chicken
  • Snack 2: pepitas
  • Dinner: celebratory dinner (gulp!)

Fitness update:

  • After feeling kinda bummed for a few weeks about not bouncing back 100% since the ankle injury, I feel better today after a long run. Thirteen miles at an easy pace in the cool of the morning, pain-free and feeling light as a feather!
  • Speaking of feeling light, I went through my old Instagram posts and learned that I’ve gained 8 pounds in 15 months! Dafuq have I been doing?! Fingers crossed, it was the regular cross-training.

Life update:

  • Holy crap. Another year older. 
  • Cellulite. 
  • Fingers crossed I get accepted into the 2017 Boston Marathon!
  • Can’t wait to see my family again.
