Rest Week

Happy Friday! And I guess Happy Memorial Day weekend, but I don’t really understand holiday’s since I work every single one of them. So go ahead and enjoy your time off while I continue to slave away… ugh.

This has been SUCH a blah week. Between the rain and my extreme allergies (so bad this year) I have wanted to do nothing but sleep. So that I’ve done. I’ve taken it really easy after the half marathon almost 3 weeks ago, just running a few times and doing some upper body work. But this week I just wanted to take time to rest and not be too concerned with working out. So I did. And you know what? First time ever I didn’t suffer from extreme anxiety due to it. I mean I’m a little moody this morning because I’m itching to work out now, but it gave me a chance to relax and focus on eating good. I’ve lost a bunch of water weight since I haven’t been working out as much and it has me thinking that every few months a couple days/week stretch of planned rest might do my body good! As much as I work out, sometimes I feel like I see no results even when I’ve been eating pretty clean. I know I need to do an even better job of watching what I eat sometimes, but more than anything I need to chill out.

With the hotter temps I’ve been craving huge salads again, and I totally forgot how easy they are to throw together for lunch and dinners! I’ve been buying my lunch way too much over the past month, so now it’s back to saving money and saving some calories. Here are 2 beauties from dinner this week:

Romaine, broccoli slaw, tomatoes, onion, sauteed green peppers, jalapenos, talapia, shredded cheddar with 2% greek yogurt and hot sauce as dressing. Tried to do a remake of a Chipotle salad bowl but with fish instead of chicken. So good!

Best salad I’ve ever made. Romaine, broccoli slaw, tomatoes, sauteed green peppers, goat cheese, brussels sprouts, and jalapeno chicken sausage with Trader Joe’s spicy peanut sauce and hot sauce. Incredible.

So yep, my week has consisted of work, salads, sleep, repeat. Definitely ready to be sweaty and full of endorphins!!! 🙂
