I feel like I usually write about yummy new recipes or my success in reaching a new mileage goal in running. However, today I come to you to report on my struggles…
The first one was an innocent enough failure. It involved broccoli.
And it seemed so promising! It involved browning pine nuts… (YUM)
and parmesan cheese.
Unfortunately when it all came together, it was bland. Not bad, but definitely not worthy of being a Christmas dinner side dish.
Back to the drawing board for a veggie side dish that can be made on the stove…
Struggle numero dos has to do with exercise. I’ve been trying to fit it in despite my busy schedule, but when I do fit it in, it’s like my stamina is gone.
(why the face) 😉 Modern Family? Anyone?
Take yesterday for example. I even had a buddy to go to the gym with me.
…but it didn’t seem to help with my endurance. I hopped on the treadmill and was done once I reached:
1.26?! I ran just over a mile, then walked some, and then I just couldn’t go any longer.
Boredom? Inability? Who knows, but I was frustrated. Determined not to completely waste a trip to the gym, I decided to get in some strength training (which I have been seriously slacking on).
BTW- do you know how hard it is to take pictures of yourself with an iPhone in the gym? I don’t think I’ll be doing that again.
So there you have it. My confession of a kitchen failure and my struggles in exercise.
What do you do when you hit a slump in exercise? Go cold turkey until you feel motivated again? Dedicate yourself to a schedule?
All advice welcomed… have a fabulous weekend! 🙂
