I’m not going back to posting my workouts and eats every day, but I do want to give a few days to it.
This morning I made my boyfriend breakfast. Let’s here it for pancakes! I love pancakes, but rarely indulge in them because I’m sensitive to wheat, gluten, and they’re not exactly healthy. Buuutttt… They are soo good. I ate 3/4 of one, and loved every but of it.
After my workout my boyfriend took me to a local version of Pinkberry, only the yogurt is even lower in calories. I had the original tart vanilla one, topped with pineapple chunks, blueberries, and 2 maraschino cherries. I drizzled a little raspberry sauce, along with Melba sauce. Um…freakin delicious, especially on a day like today. It’s more than 90 degrees in New York!

I am super sore. I want to enter Warrior Dash this summer, so I’m working running with no breaks. Yesterday I clocked myself. I did one mile in 11 and 40 seconds, with one break at the 1/2 mile. I ran between 5.4-5.6 mph. I think 6mph will be my final goal, and I want to be able to run 3 miles without stopping. I’ve been working on strength training, but I’ll have to start cleaning up my diet.
Summer is one of my favorite times in terms of food, because there is so many delicious and light fare around. On the other hand, it’s also ice cream season, potato salad season, and a bunch of yummy things I love. Summer is the one time that I don’t mind being a little strict about my vegan habits. I only have ice cream about once a week during the summer. It’s a tradition of my boyfriend and I. As for the potato salad I only eat it when my mom makes it, which isn’t so often since 1) I don’t live at home and 2) Homemade potato salad takes mad long to make, which means my mom doesn’t bust out the potato peeler every day.
Anyway, I’m going to get back to being more mindful of my protein intake. I will also be more mindful of simple carbs. Sorry, Pancakes:(
