I think it may have been from all the butter and whole milk in the scone recipe. I don't really know what the cause is since I also ate dinner after my scone snack yesterday afternoon.

Note: I left my place this morning at 7am to head over to Long Beach for my long run and one of the freeway exit was closed so I ended up in Compton somewhere and had to go to the bathroom really badly. I finally made it to the meeting area and we didn't end up starting until maybe 8:45am I think. It was really hot today and I didn't really enjoy doing the long run as much as I had thought. It was rough running in that heat. It really took it out of me. I ended up doing 13.5 in under 2 hours and was so happy to get out of the sun. I hope next week will be better. I definitely need to drink more during my long runs.

Note2: I've been doing alot better with my diet. I am once again eating more salads and less bad carbs and processed foods. I am losing that extra weight I gained while I was sick so I am happy about that.

Note: I was going to wake up this morning to do some cardio but I must have been tired as I ended up sleeping in. So I moved my cardio to lunch time and then hit up some weights after work. I am excited that we are running 14 miles tomorrow on the Long Beach marathon course. I've been itching to run more than 12. It's been really hot here lately so I better run fast or get stuck in the heat which is already bad at 9am this morning. I have a ton of errands to run tomorrow so I will be doing that after my long run.

Note2: I decided to make dinner in tonight instead of going out to eat. Going to make it a dinner and movie night at home since I have a long run tomorrow morning.

I need to be more consistent and discipline. I am going to try to do more stairclimber this week. I've been feeling pretty tired lately. Not sure if it is because I am doing too much working out or not enough. I've been pretty lazy so that might be it. Trying to not have too much coffee. Craving it alot lately.

So that is why I have cereal in my place. I love cereal so much but I try not to eat it too often as they are not the best thing for you since most of them have a ton of sugar in them. I love Basic 4 cereal!

Note2: My new Garmin finally arrived in the mail today! Happy joy joy dance! It is currently charging. I cannot wait to take it for a spin this afternoon. I don't think I am going to wear the heart monitor this time around but I do intend to test it out soon. I was suppose to get up this morning and go for a run but my lazy butt decided to sleep in. @_@

Note: I am about 3.5 weeks out from the Nautica tri run portion (10K). I am really nervous since I am the only girl on the team. I know my teammates are training hard so I am doing my best to hold my own. Over the course of these next 3 weeks, I need to get out there one morning and run 6.2 miles very fast and see how I do. There is just no subtitution for actually going out there and doing it. I've been trying to lean up a bit and drop some fat weight so that I will be lighter and hopeful be a bit faster by default...hahaha. After my Nautica event the following weekend will be my 20 mile run with the group. I will be missing the 18 miler due to the Nautica event so hopefully it will be ok. I remember I did a 20, 22 and 24 miler training for the OC Marathon so I am not sure how training with just one 20 miler will go at the actual race. My tuesday night interval sessions are doing wonders for my speed.

Random Thoughts


I've been really bad about documenting my day lately. Mainly because I've been feeling tired and de-motivated but I want to start being better about my post. So this is just a random posting of photos from this past weekend. I didn't write down everything I ate so I cannot post it as a day-to-day posting but I had the photos so I thought that I would put it up.

Note: I got some really cute shoes at the Naturalizer. Yeah I am a comfort fiend. I am old enough to know that really cute shoes only mean pain but these are actually not that bad. I wore them to work yesterday and no blister or red marks or sore feet. Yay!

Day 191 - Tuesday - Day 2


Breakfast - 9:30am
1/2 cup cooked rolled oatmeal w/ wheatberries, tropical nut mix, pepitas and PB
1 cup green grapes

Midday workout - 12:00pm
Cardio - 45 mins - stairclimber (I was really hungry after my workout today. Need to eat a snack from now on.)

Lunch - 1:30pm
Indian lamb and veggie stew w/ 1/4 cup white rice
Some green grapes
Some cut up carrot sticks

Snack - 4:00pm
1 banana w/ PB
10 mini caramel ricecakes

Run Practice - 6:30pm
Run 8 miles intervals

Dinner - 8:30pm
Sauteed green cauliflower w/ shrimp
Garden salad and some pork meat

Note: So I have run practice tonight and I am excited about going. I missed practice last week due to fatigue and felt partly bad for missing it. I did not regret resting as I felt so much better the next day. I think I need to eat more calories as I got really hungry after my lunchtime workout. I think I lamented about this before but I have the hardest time finding healthy snacks to eat before working out. My stomach is pretty sensitive and I cannot eat diary so I mainly am stuck with fruits, PB and maybe some whole grain something or other. I need to find a good healthy snack that will work for me. I realized today that I am finally totally over my sickness. I am feeling 100% better. I cannot express my joy.

Note2: So it is official that my stupid Garmin Forerunner 205 is dead. I tried so hard to revive it but I think is it dead. So I ordered a new one from Target. Actually I ordered the Forerunner 305 with the heart rate monitor which I am super excited to try out. I will have to suffer until it arrives in the mail I hope sometime this week. In the meantime I need to call up Garmin again and send my 205 in for repair. It will be nice to have a backup just in case.

Note3: Sister J joined me at run practice yesterday and she did so great! I kinda lied to her as I had thought that we were only running 6 miles but turns out the weekly milage had increase last week when I missed practice..hahaha. She did so good though! We went to this nearby market after practice and I stocked up on produce. I wanted a salad so bad. I don't really like Tuesdays as I normally get home really late and have to eat my dinner late.

(I got some heirloom tomatos at this market near where I meet up with my run group and I had them with my salad today and they were so so good.)

Note: Sister K and I were bumming around this weekend and she decided to create a list of foods that we didn't like since we both really love food and would eat just about anything. Sister K is very adventurous and loves to try new foods. Anyways, as much as I like to admit that I am open minded about most foods, there are just some foods that I do not like. I mean, I would eat them if I was starving and had nothing else for days but I seriously would not eat them for pleasure. Unfortunately, almost everything on my list of do-not-like-foods happen to be veggies. I like most veggies but some I just cannot get past. I do my best but I have never met anyone who loved ALL veggies.

Note: There is a very interesting article that Summer Tomato listed in her For the Love of Food roundup this week. It is about food, exercise and their relationship to being thin and how exercizing has nothing to do with being thin. I found this article interesting as it was written by someone from the Times and also because I have such an unhealthy relationship to food. Either that I simply have no self control or perhaps I do but continue to make poor choices because of the chemicals in my brain telling me to eat the ramen instead of the salad. I must say that I struggle everyday with food choices. When I am not feeling well or am tired, I make the worse choices. I look forward to the day when I feel comfortable and happy eating healthy things. But for today, I try to make small healthy changes that will allow me to get to that day.

Note 2: so I decided to go back to my 2 workouts a day routine except I am going to try to get in 2 cardio session each day. I will stick with the 1 session on my run practice days...so mainly just going to run practice. I noticed that I am competitive and tend to run too fast during run practice so that I would make it back to the starting point before other people did. I am always sore the next day which is how I know I am over doing it a bit. I am trying to lose 5-6 lbs before the Nautica. I just run so much better with less weight. So hopefully these double cardio session will help me get there.

Note: I am really proud of myself for waking up this morning at 6:30am and going to workout in the gym. I've messed up my sleeping pattern when the times changed and also when I got sick and stayed up really late every night since I didn't have to go to work the next day. It was really hard to get out of bed this morning but I think it will only get better. It is always hardest the first day but I made it to the gym and even though I didn't get in all the 6 miles, I did crank out 5 so I am happy with that for now. I am going back into the gym at lunchtime today to do some strength training and maybe some HIIT. We will see how I feel. Trying to build up my strength again as I've gotten really weak. I am still on medication but am feeling pretty good overall. I have a bit over a month to get ready for the Nautica tri and about 2 months to get ready for LB Marathon.

Craft


Sometimes when I am not running, at work or eating, I like to make crafts. I've always loved crafts since I was a little girl. I've been into everything from drawing, watercoloring, scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting, sewing, cross stitching, paper crafting and origami making. The creative side of my brain has always been more active than my analytical side. I solve a lot of my day-to-day problems by being creative. I will upload photos of stuff I've worked on over the years but I am having some trouble finding all the photos of things that I've made. I will load as I find them.
