Relaxation days are best

Today is a day for relaxing.

I’ve been working hard and I deserve a rest day….from school not running.

Caitlin posted a great “Plug Your Blog” where over 400 comments were left talking about their blog. I will spend today reading them and finding more blogs to read! Go check it out if you want to meet more people or grab some new material to read!


Yesterday I went for a 3 mile run. I took Saturday and Sunday off because my tendon in my foot was hurting. It still hurts but for some reason doesn’t hurt when I run, just when I walk and stand on it for a long time.

mile 1:  8:00
mile 2:  8:15
mile 3:  8:10

I’m going to be honest, this run was tough.

For these reasons:

    the heat  was obnoxious
    I kept getting side cramps
    my throat and lungs hurt

I’ve only taken two pictures of food from the weekend to yesterday. Sorry! I fail! I need a good/legit camera like you all to take some high quality pictures.


heart attack on a plate. Don’t worry, I only ate half.


Artichokes, Spinach and Sausage. My favorite pizza on campus 🙂

Dietary Analysis

So in my Sports Nutrition throughout the year we’ve learned how to calculate things such as BMR, RMR, Total CHO, Total PRO, Total FAT, Total FLUID.

So I will share mine.

BMR: 1260 kcal
RMR: 2016 kcal
Total CHO: 277g – 327 g
Total PRO: 60g – 100g
Total FAT: 56g – 67g
Fluid at min: 67.2 oz


So if anyone has some good healthy recipes they’d like to share, comment with them and I’ll share them in a future post for everyone to see! I’m buckling down this summer and going to try and eat better.

Things that make me happy

– Glee is on tonight
– I get a relax day today
– Ran a pretty good 3 miler despite the challenges
– School is almost over!
