I have had a great week so far. As some of you may know, I am planning on doing the Ironman New Orleans 70.3 in April of next year. So I have been trying to do a little swimming, running, and biking every week.
My biggest fear is riding my bike on the road with cars:( If anyone has any suggestions on how I can get over that, please share.
Also I have been trying to get my nutrition back under control. I did a 40 day Paleo challenge at the beginning of the year. I lost 19lbs in that 40 days AND ran a marathon powered on sweet potatoes. I felt great, so I am slowly getting back in to that way of eating. One of my favorite things o make are egg muffins...
They are so versatile. I made these in every way I could think of. LOL!
I have even added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to make them on the sweeter side, they were delicious.
I also received this awesome book I the mail yesterday from the wonderful people over at Runners World Magazine.
I am so excited to start cooking my way through the book. I will be modifying a few recipes to make them more paleo, however the entire book looks amazing!
If your interested in getting your own copy.
I am a huge fan on keeping kids active. So a little update on my kiddos.
My youngest son is playing football. His team is 4-0 undefeated. I am so proud of him.
My oldest son runs cross country for his middle school. He has 1 XC meet so far and he came in 12th overall and 2nd on his team. There were over 100 runners in his age group. He has another meet tomorrow night, I will update on his race. He is a great runner.
Now my baby girl is transitioning from gymnastics to swimming. We are trying out something new. She had a wonderful couple of years at Planet Gymnastics in Mobile AL. If you are local and want a great gymnastics gym check them out. So now we are part of West Mobile Swim Team and she is LOVING it!
So this afternoon I have a date with my bike trainer and some Dance Moms. I also have some really cool race news coming tomorrow. Any of you guys like the Spartan? Well I have a special for you guys. Stay tuned.
I hope you guys have a great day!
