Hi everyone! How was your Saturday? Hope you had a good day :)
I am determined to have a great week of workouts and food because Saturday is RACE DAY! I am running in this 10K and am really excited. I feel like I have done a good job in my training and fueling my body and want to stay on track this week too. I set my PR yesterday: 53:29 wooohoo!
I got a head start on food prep yesterday and finished it off this morning.
For lunch, my awesome Dad grilled some extra chicken breasts for me and then I roasted butternut squash and zucchini — my easy, nutritious go-to portable meal. Veggies (baby carrots, peppers, cucumber) fruit (apples, bananas, peaches, berries), nuts and seeds, plenty of nut butter and oats are also in full supply this week.
My Pinterest boards are overflowing with “recipes to make.” I have so many recipes from other bloggers and websites that I want to try so I am determined to make more recipes each week.

I may be a bit of a nerd but planning my meals and workouts really help to keep me organized and on-track. I’m off to check out a gym this afternoon! It’s time to join one… I hate running in the cold [so sad summer is ending but my fall wardrobe is more fun.]
Have a great rest of your weekend!
Do you plan your workouts?
Are you training for a race or competition?
