So Proud!

This morning I started my day with my current addiction- banana chocolate chip muffins that I made this weekend! Not exactly the healthiest, but they're pretty small and paired with fruit it's a yummy breakfast. Today I had a banana on the side.

Here is the recipe in case you want to try them.

I had a doctor's appointment at 11:00 am and then I headed to my internship. At my desk, I had a Kashi TLC chocolate coconut bar and a granny smith apple.

I got home, had a snack and went for my run. I had a goal of running a 10 minute mile pace for 30 minutes, but I really pushed myself so by the end I was exhausted. When I used mapmyrun.com to figure out the distance, it turned out I ran 3.5 miles in 27 minutes! That's a really fast pace for me... around a 7:40 minute mile.

My goal for the triathlon 4 mile section is to run an 8 minute mile, so I feel like I'm already in pretty good shape, especially since I have 3 more months! Dream big!

When I got back from my run, I had a plate of veggies, but the peppers were a little rotten tasting.

I made some "fake mac and cheese" for dinner (one of my obsessions) with whole wheat elbow pasta, follow your heart vegan cheddar "cheese" and rice milk. It's one of my favorite dinners, so you'll be seeing it probably...too often haha.

Tomorrow I have a big day. First day at my second part-time internship! I can't wait to see how it goes!

  1. that's amazing for your run! I have such a hard time pushing myself when out on a run. I'm going to try some of the follow your heart cheeses so maybe your recipe will a future dinner for me too. Congrats on two internships! that's awesome you're getting to dabble in different arenas and figure out what you like
