four miler.

i have been trying to think of some hilarious april fool's joke to play on co-workers today but i have yet to come up with anything.


i started my #whole30 today and i am pumped to get back in the swing of things. easter weekend put a wrench in my cooking sundays. and the weather outside prevented me from staying in on saturday.

so i'll make up for it tonight.

on the menu:
nom nom paleo's coconut pancakes [for breakfast]
bison burgers, sauteed mushrooms and onions, baked sweet potato rounds with roasted brussel sprouts

yeah, i know. you want to come over.

so true.
also, i want to document that i ran 4 miles this weekend. i've been doing interval training since january one and have only run for distance once. just to see if i could do it. so saturday it was the same idea.

i turned on pandora and runkeeper and set it to alert me for miles only. i didn't look at time. or my heartrate. i just ran on the most gorgeous day we've had yet.

around 3.5mi [when i finally looked at the distance] i wanted to quit. but i decided that i had come this far, i couldn't quit.

and it was the best feeling ever.

was it hard? yes. but did i know i could do it? yes.

breaking/creating a habit is addicting. [probably has something to do with my control issues?!] having added running to my weekly routine has been so rewarding. it really proves working hard pays off. i can't wait for my dentist to tell me what a great patient i am after flossing daily since the last appt. that'll be so badass.

i just signed up for a 5k series in april. every friday. i hope it is as fun as they say it is. hopefully i see improvement each week!
