Start of week 4 of the Holiday Shred

Yesterday was the start of week 4. It's gotten a little tougher mostly due to my maternity leave ending this last week.  going back to 10 hour shifts this past Friday made things kinda crazy.  

Leaving this wasn't easy either 
I've stuck with eating 80% healthy and the other 20% is actually pretty healthy just not the best choices. I'm ok with it. If I was 100% I'd binge eventually and all my hard work would be for nothing. My usual meal plan is:
Breakfast I'm obsessed with quinoa cooked with almond milk, pomegranate seeds, raisins, strawberries, and a drizzle of agave syrup YUM!!
Lunch: usually a salad with chicken or a quesadilla whole wheat tortillas, mozzarella cheese, avocado, tomatoes and corn 

Dinner: chili or crock pot shredded beef or salsa chicken
Snacks Ezekiel bread with almond butter, fruit, veggies with hummus

Runners world cookbook rocks!!

I started the Runners World Run Streak on thanksgiving day and am loving it. I run longer on mon, wed, and Saturday, the other days I stick with 1 mile and a weight routine. I'm loving the Holidayshred13 workouts. They are super tough but I'm feeling stronger.  I've also lost 5 lbs in the last 3 weeks. Woot woot! Results always make it easier to stick with it. 
This is the longest run to date. I finished at 7:45 min pace! Wahoo!
Tree decorating was a sweet success very fun:-) holidays are way more fun with kids for sure!
My favorite ornaments from my husbands grandma. Beautiful 

Happy Holidays all! Are you streaking?

  1. Awesome job on the shred! Sounds like you are finding your rhythm now that you are back at work. I am streaking, but sometimes I wondering if I would have better quality workouts if I wasn't. Happy Holidays to you and your family!
