Wow! I actually missed a day of blogging! Let me catch everyone up.
I intended to do a 5K on my own just to monitor my progress, but started to run too soon after eating so my running was lacking. In the middle of my run I decided that it would be in my best interest to do a 15 minute run and then go digest some more and do another run. So after I digested I did 1 minute on 1 minute off for 1 mile. It took me 7 min and 34 seconds to do a mile. That's pretty fast for me! I call that my CFE on a whim.
Late breakfast: eggs, salsa, steak, onion, zuchinni
no lunch, but had a larabar for snack
Dinner: We had a tailgate party before the Edison 5K...chicken, peppers, mixed vegetables, avocado
I was hungry when we came home from the Festival so I munched on some more veggies...I figured I don't eat enough of them anyway so it couldn't hurt. Oh yeah..and I can't forget my paleo cocktail. I'm really liking the tequila.
The 5K was really fun to watch! I'm very proud of my crossfit friends who ran. We saw Leah, Paul, Sarah, Kate, Jason, J-Brod, Diane, Jane, Michelle, and I might be forgetting some of you. Rob got some great pictures! I'l have to have him post them. There is a really awesome one of Jane!
Then we watched the parade and I was so excited because one of my former students was on the Estero Fire Dept. Float with her Dad and mom and sister (who will be my student next year). It was very exciting! Her mom and dad saw me and we tried to get her attention, but it was too late she was in the front and I had already missed her. We also saw Jason Gunter and Laurie. Very exciting!
Breakfast: eggs, salsa, avocado, onion, red pepper, olives
lunch: lettuce, turkey, apples, macadamia nuts.
Dinner: coconut shrimp, peppers, avocado
After church, Rob and I spent some time on Sanibel again (see picture). We've really been enjoying taking some time for ourselves. We packed our lunch and it was a fun little picnic. We also had a paleo cocktail. There was a wedding on the beach and it really made me miss mine. Then I started thinking, my wedding dress would probably be a little big on me now. I have a wedding I am going to be in on October 1st. I am very excited and am hoping that my dress will need to be taken in. It is always my goal to have my dresses take in. The good news is...my stomach did go down. Sarah might be right it could be from the dried fruit. I've stopped eating dried fruit so we will see if that helps the stomach issue. On another positive note, I put on a dress before church today that used to fit a little snug and now it is pretty loose. If I lose another five pounds, I could have an excuse to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. I did feel much better in my bathing suit today than I have in a long time. Life is good!
