On Monday I said all I had time for over the weekend was studying and grocery shopping. I did manage to take a few study breaks and one of them included dusting off my running shoes. The last time I ran was summer. There have been many long walks, but no running. I go through phases like that.
After a week of super clean eating, I was starting to feel more energetic. Also, I've been inspired by some of my blog friends that have blogging/instagram-ing pictures of their outdoor exercise. On Saturday morning when I woke up craving a run I got out my running shoes and went outside. It may have been gray, but at least it was dry.
I live near a great park that's basically a small mountain. From my house to the very top is 3 miles.
There are a lot of stairs. I love the stairs.
And steep dirt trails.
Speaking of nutrients, I've still been munching on the same sort of stuff, eating for energy, and following the basic Eat To Live nutritarian guidelines and trying to get the maximum nutrition from my food.
Salad with miso-almond dressing, cilantro, and green onion.
Steamed kale, broccoli, and quinoa. Soon to be covered in nooch and my tangy almond sauce.
White beans and greens salad with tahini sauce and nooch.
And I finally got to taste the BluePrint Cashew Milk. Probably one of the highlights of my week. I've been curious about this for so long. Conclusion? It's good. I enjoyed it. Now that I know what it tastes like I can make it for myself and not spend $11. I would buy it again if traveling, though! I'm happy that I finally got to taste it.
Wednesday is my Friday, and always a happy day. I'm looking forward to another run on my days off. It's starting to warm (just a little) here. Plants are sprouting and blooming. I know not to get too excited, though. March usually brings some freezing weather, so the slight increase in temperature is most likely just a tease. This is the time of year where I start to get excited about summer. In the meantime, I'll see you in a few days for Healthy Vegan Friday.
