More Relay Report to Report

And the results are in! TTD and I took 2nd place in the women's Bidwell Classic Half Marathon relay team! Alan over at FF said we would place and I waved my hand to shoo him away and said I would just be happy to finish. This gave me the little nudge of confidence I need for next weekends Shamrock'n Half in Sacramento.

I haven't been doing so good on the eating front but this week I'm going to make more of an effort since Sunday really depends on it. I'm taking a little protein at every meal but being good about getting more carbs mostly from fruits and veggies until Thursday when I move into starchy glycemic rich foods to fuel my body for Sundays race. I should have NO problem carbing up on Saturday since it will be my nephew JJ's 1st Birthday party! Birthday cake here I come. I'll just need to remember to drink lots and lots and lots of water and not Over Stuff myself. It will be an early morning the next day and I'll need to have everything ready.

Tonight I had two taquitos (the ones that did not end up on the kids plates) and a baked potato with a half tablespoon of sour cream. I had broccoli salad, cut up half of an apple, dried cranberries, chopped cashews with a teaspoon of honey mustard dressing for lunch and ... no breakfast! I know I'm so bad but we had a yard sale today and it was go go go from the moment I woke up at the new 6am til I took it down at 1pm.

My dinner last night... WOW so super yummy. I had polenta in the fridge so I thought I'd make some polenta pizzas I through some rounds in the oven and started going through the fridge when I realized I really really really wanted huevos rancheros... sort of. I took out eggs and fried too to over hard, I had black beans and some southwest salsa to throw on there and ... what? Where did my cheese go? What the heck? (can you see my frantically searching through my tiny fridge that should take about 2 seconds to scan?) All I had was feta? So feta it was and it did make a pretty dish and it was OH SO YUMMY! I'm starting to feel a bit like Kai Kai and Caitlin getting foody on you and all. I love that they post food pix. I should do it more often but my food never looks as yummy as theirs does.

Congrats on your race!!

And I hear ya on all the food pics others post. Mine rarely looks good so I don't post much about them.

Good luck on your race next weekend!

Congrats on finishing second! That's amazing!

That dinner looks extremely healthy and colorful. I'm trying to be conscious of eating different colorful foods so I'm getting different nutrients in (instead of the same old white/brown foods). Enjoy that cake - you deserve it!
