It’s been an odd start to the week as I have to go in to work for a few hours this afternoon/evening. Then tomorrow, I have the morning off before spending my afternoon as a teaching assistant. After a few weekends of work/travel, I was looking forward to getting back into my meal planning groove. However, between my schedule change, the BOY’s late night finals, and a sushi date with my girl friends on Thursday, there’s not much planning to do.
I did finally make it to the grocery store this morning in order to restock our house with food…specifically fresh fruits and veggies! We were in a sad state as evidenced above by the lone garlic.
With the start of May, I am excited to detox my diet. I mentioned this in my May goals, but didn’t have the energy to elaborate. My plan is to return to a cleaner way of eating that includes no processed foods and tons of fresh produce. I know that spring weather, farmer’s markets, and the BOY’s love of BBQing make this a much easier task. I also know that I have exciting races and a fun trip abroad (details coming soon) planned where I will want to look and feel my best. Now, that’s what I call motivation!
I kicked off the week with a colorful salad with tuna. I picked up some fish for dinner tomorrow night and decided on simple and easy to prep turkey tacos for dinner on Wednesday. That’s about as far as I got with this week’s meal plans. I know the BOY is excited to work through his last few finals so that he can get back to the grill and his new smoker.
This morning I treated my tired body to a much needed day off. After yesterday’s PR, it deserved some rest, but I am looking forward to getting back into my tri training groove later in the week. My official race results from yesterday were posted, and I was spot on with my own self timing…

What’s fun is that I placed 11/40 in my age and division and 205/850 in the entire race! Combined with a PR, I am proud of my early season effort!
Quick question for ya’ll before I head off to work…I am looking for some healthy and easy to prepare ideas for lunch…maybe even salads that can be made ahead.
