WIAW: Making Healthier Restaurant Choices

I’ve been doing a lot better with my sugar intake this week! It’s been a little tough but I’m feeling a lot better(less bloating and stomach issues) so it’s definitely worth it. I have been pretty busy with work lately, which translates into a lot of eating out, but I’ve been trying to make healthier choices.

Peas and Crayons

Here are my eats from yesterday:

Power breakfast egg bowl with steak and avocado from Panera Bread. Unfortunately this was kind of terrible. I didn’t hate it but the steak was cold…so it felt weird eating it with hot eggs. Maybe just too many textures for me or something?

Grilled chicken Cobb salad from Le Pain Quotidien. This is a staple for me, I just love it!

A Quest bar and iced tea for snack time. I think I’m starting to get addicted to these bars!

Dinner at home: roasted chicken legs, broccoli and a random hard boiled egg.

Cherries for dessert!

I also had a few(too many) cups of coffee that managed to escape being photographed throughout the day.

Thanks to Jen for hosting WIAW!

One Mile Run & Weekend Snapshots

Last week I had to get a few stitches on my leg so I haven't been able to work out. Today is the first day I've been able to run so I did a 1 mile jog in the rain. Very slow but getting faster!

Here are a few shots from my Memorial Day weekend:

April Goals

Run three times a week.
I’ve been getting better about working out. In the past month I’ve gone from exercising twice a week(if that) to 4-5 times, but I need to get back into running. Now that it’s finally getting warmer I should be motivated to run outside.

Yoga once a week.
I said it before, I hate yoga….but it’s good for me so I’m going to keep trying it.

Cook” dinner once a week.
As in, don’t eat out or order take out. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just not from a restaurant.

Power down an hour before bed.
I struggle with insomnia and lately it’s been ridiculous so I’m ready to try anything. I’m hoping that if I cut down on phone/computer/tv before bed time(and read for an hour instead) I will be able to fall asleep easier.
