The Stuff NIGHTMARES are Made Of

So, I had my first (of MANY, I’m sure) marathon nightmares. This one was relatively tame compared to some that I’ve had in the past.

First of all, I’m training for the 2014 Chicago Marathon! Ah! What was Irun_girl_Collage thinking? Yes, I’ve completed 4 marathons, but it’s been 4 years, so I’m feeling pretty nervous about it. My OFFICIAL training hasn’t quite begun yet. I’m in the PRE-training stage of my training. Does that make sense? I’m just trying to get my legs, heart and lungs used to pounding the pavement again. I’m doing about 3-4 runs per week, with a maximum distance SO FAR of 6 miles. That mileage will begin to jump up very soon! It’s going to be a looonng summer!

So anyway…back to my nightmare.

Previous nightmares have been things like, suddenly I get lost in the middle of the race! Or that they’ve decided to throw in some obstacles, like running through buildings, along tight spaces, climbing things, etc… One of my nightmares actually came true! In 2010 (my last marathon), I showed up late and had to sprint across downtown Chicago BEFORE starting my marathon. I was also attempting to pin my bib on myself at the same time. This is not the way you really want to start your marathon. I had to run 26.2 miles after that nonsense!

So last night I had a similar dream. I showed up on time, but realized I hadn’t gone to the Expo the day before to pick up my bib and microchip. The race organizers directed me to a building where I had to stand in line to get my bag, quickly try to attach my microchip and bib, find a place to put my belongings and make my way back to the start. At that point I of course experienced the dreaded ‘running through quick sand’ feeling, where no matter how hard I tried… I couldn’t seem to run! UGH! Thankfully at that point, I woke up and all was well. Crisis averted…for now!

Now…only 138 more sleeps until the race.

I’ve decided to attempt a weekly blog entry to chronicle my training. I’m hoping for lots of nice weather, no injuries and a mild year of asthma symptoms! Is that too much to wish for?

running_momAlso, I started a super cool running group just for moms – or people who have moms – who like to run, or walk, or move briskly from one spot to another! We talk about things like chaffing and running bras and just encourage each other to be awesome! Sounds fun doesn’t it?!


If you’re interested, send a request to join to HERE!

 

PS – I don’t run that fast. It wouldn’t be that hard to “keep up”! 😉

Don’t Hide Your Bikini Just YET!

But hurry! Deadline to join is TOMORROW: Friday (May 23) at midnight!

All you need is a workout plan or program that you will be following for the 30 days. Everyone will commit to 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days/week! *If you don’t have a plan, I can help you pick one (p.s. Check out the SALES below!). We’ll be focusing on nutrition for the 30 days; working on incorporating more clean foods and healthier choices!  We’ll have a private Facebook group for daily check-ins and support.

It’s ALL Greek Salad for ME!

Mediterranean Vegetarian Quinoa Salad

Let me introduce you to my lunch! Man did this hit the spot today! And I’ve got a TON leftover which will be GREAT for lunches for the rest of this week. And it will travel well, so I’ll be taking it on the go, too! 🙂 PS – You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this salad! As a matter of fact, feel free to add some cut up grilled chicken or whatever meat-type products you’d like!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups veggie brothmed_salad
  • 1 cup quinoa (I used red today)
  • 1/2 red onion – chopped
  • 1 sweet bell pepper – chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes – diced
  • 1 can chickpeas – rinsed
  • 1/2 sliced black olives (kalamata would be great!)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled reduced fat feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (or 2-3 T. dry)
  • 2 lemons – squeezed
  • 2 t. red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • ground sea salt & pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions (using broth instead of water). Wait until cooled to add to the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Meanwhile chop veggies and add to a large bowl with chickpeas, olives, feta and parsley.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Add the cooled quinoa to the bowl and toss gently with the dressing.

 

Serving suggestion: I put mine over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce. *It comes with its own salad dressing already, no need to add more!

Makes 8 servings 

1 serving = 179 calories, 6 grams protein, 16 grams carbs.

 

Big Crock Pot O’ Shredded Buffalo Chicken

Well this was tasty and definitely worth repeating again and again!

I’ve been following the 21 Day FIX meal plan, and I love how simple it is to track what to eat each day without counting calories or points. Meals like this are GREAT, because I can make a big batch, and use it throughout the week to fill up my red (lean proteins) container. I put it in wraps (I like Ezekiel tortillas) or even on top of a salad. You can adjust the heat, using the amount of hot sauce that suits your fancy. My ‘fancy’ likes it HOT! 😉

Crock Pot Shredded Buffalo Chicken

Ingredients:buffalo chicken

  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 celery stalks
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 1/2 onion – diced
  • 3-4 C. chicken broth
  • ground black pepper (to taste)
  • *water
  • 1/2 – 1 C. Franks Red Hot Sauce

Directions

Add chicken, garlic, celery, carrots, onion, chicken broth and pepper to the crock pot. Add enough *water (or more broth) to just about cover the chicken. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours (depending on the temp of your crock pot). Remove the veggies and skim or strain the broth to remove the icky, chunky bits. Reserve broth. Shred chicken with 2 forks and return to the crock pot with 1/2-1 cup of the reserved broth PLUS 1/2-1 cup of the hot sauce, until it’s the desired heat and moistness. 🙂 Cook for an additional 30 minutes on low. Eat it up!
