Becoming Sane

Morning Bloggerfam!! I hope you had a WONDERFUL night's sleep. I forced myself to bed early and woke up to a 1/2 slice of Ezekiel bread, some ANPB, and some coffee. Then I hit the treadmill for some 5k training action.

Actually, I didn't hop on the treadmill as quickly as I would have liked. I was a bit pissy. I have started a couple 5k programs MANY MANY times, and I simply do not stick with them. I then remembered Einstein's quote.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -- Albert Einstein

Duh! Why would I force myself to do the SAME program that I did not enjoy in the past? I won't stick to something if I don't enjoy it.

I'm trying a NEW program. And, I like that I am starting it on a Tuesday. This makes my "long" runs fall on Saturdays -- perfect! Check out the Spark Your Way to a 5k Jogging Program. Today's run was only a 1/2 mile. I actually enjoyed myself, though, and that is what it's about! I could probably run a 5k, but if I started with that I would be a miserable mess, and I would never want to run again!

After my very brief jog I hit up Youtube for a yoga abs session. I didn't really like the video I chose, but that's okay. At least I feel like I accomplished something! and I got a great reward -- BREAKFAST!

Blueberry Spelt Loaf
4 egg whites
17g Organic Spelt Flour
17g Organic Spelt Flakes
1g Stevia
25g Wild Blueberries (I used frozen)

It wasn't as good as a blueberry muffin from a coffee shop, or even as good as a blueberry muffin with a yummy whey blend, but I'm trying to limit my protein powder consumption... only because I don't want to eat so much processed filler.

Bake on 350* until cooked through. I'm not sure how long I baked it. I finished packing my meals for the day then ate! :D

have you ever tried Jay Robb whey protein? it's about as close to natural as protein powder gets(they use stevia as a sweetener). Kind of expensive, but pretty clean and tastes good.

Hi Lizzy!! Nope, I haven't tried that one, but only because of the price tag! LOL!

I have stopped and started so many running programs it aint even funny : ) ... my best 5K's, 10K's and even half marathons were one's that I didn't follow any particular program for.. I would just run until I got tired and ended up happy with my time come race day.. I'm betting you would do great in a 5k right now!!
