How was your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations?? Ours over here at KFIT was fun fun FUN! We kicked it off with our first 5k of the season. What a solid turn out!
It was a great day for everyone. We had a few first timers who ran without stopping. High 5! As well as a some PR’s, the biggest one going out to Corissa who shaved 14 minutes off her time last year. Last year, this race was Corissa’s first 5k. What a freakin improvement!! I’m not sure if she walked backwards last year but holy cow!! Corissa definitely gets the PR award of the year! Nice job chica!!
Of course we did some serious after partying!
Such a great first run! I’m really excited for the running season to be back in effect. Don’t forget about the free Sunday Runner’s Group if you are in the area! Now everyone go get signed up for our next run!!!
After a serious day of drinking I was ready to get my head back in the game. So Sunday was spent prepping for the week. Getting food prepared for the week makes life so much easier. It can be time consuming but it sets you up for a fail proof week. If you don’t have time to prep Sunday’s, think about making large portions at dinner time to carry you though lunches for the week. Yesterday was simple enough. I just chopped up some veggies to toss in my morning eggs, salads or sautees. I made my fave Brussels sprout salad. I boiled some eggs, I’ve been digging them w/ a scoop of humus and salsa for a snack. I also whipped up a homemade trail mix w/ almonds, walnuts, dried cherries and dark chocolate chips. Also on the list was some Sweet Potato Hash Brown Muffins. FYI. Shredding sweet potatoes sucks. Be prepared for a sucky 20 minute job with these. And last on the list was some healthified cookies for my sweet tooth. Don’t mind if I do.
This is a lie, I actually baked them, but there is a no-bake option. They came out a little dry (I was a little short on lemon juice and forgot the added 1T of oil). Next time I will try option 2. Still a solid recipe! Thanks Sarahfae!
