Things I Made Myself Eat and a 5 Hour Workout Outside

Today I spent about five hours outside pruning bushes/hedges and the maple trees, picking up sticks, and pulling up grass that grows among the landscaping rocks up against my house. I can only imagine would it would be like if I had a large yard. My arms feel like jello which works perfect for me. Today is strength training but I think I will focus more on my legs since I already got in a workout from lawn work.
The ever growing pile. This angle doesn't give me any justice. It really was a pretty big pile. Don't mind the tall grass, the lawn mower hasn't showed up yet.
I don't toot my horn much but I am so proud of my self! I am a healthy eater who loves fruits and vegetables, but I do not like zucchini (unless it is in zucchini bread or hidden in some other dessert) or squash. I bought this one pound bag of frozen veggies with the goal of finding a way I could eat them and I did! Last night's dinner was veggies and chicken sautéed and drizzled with olive oil and topped with a ton of spices, yummy!

My training is going well but it is hard to stay motivated and to finish the track workouts. Yesterday's workout consisted of 5x1000s with a 400 recovery in between. For the first time in a long time I listened to music while running outside. I needed something to get my mind off the daunting task. It Not sure whether that worked or slowed me down. The cadence was too slow and my mind was not in it.

Do you like zucchini or squash? Is there a veggie you won't eat? What songs do you listen to that get you pumped up?

  1. "Things I Made Myself Eat" - hahaha! I actually love zucchini. It's weird but ever since my youngest was born I have hated broccoli. I used to love it but now I'm just not a fan. And yard work is no joke, definitely a workout!
