Feeling better, still stuffed up and running is hard when you are stuffed up 🙁  But I still did week 4 day 2 of couch to 5k  I did 2.3 miles in the 31 minutes of the program then finished the remainder in 42 minutes (3.1 miles).  Still having to do the runs at a slower speed to make it for 5 minutes but still getting good times, first 5k is 5 days away and I’m feeling pretty good about it.

For breakfast I mixed steel cut oats with non fat greek yogurt, egg whites, blueberries and maple syrup, really tasty and lots of protein for my 600 calorie workout.  For lunch I had leftover chowder, an apple and yogurt.

Dinner was awesome!  I made light and healthy Indian.  We had brown rice, Shrimp and Squash Vindaloo and Aloo Gobi.  The vindaloo recipe was a weightwatchers recipe, the aloo gobi is adapted from the recipe in the movie “Bend It Like Beckham”  So for 9 points we feasted.  Both turned out really good, definite keepers.  It really wasn’t hard to adapt the aloo gobi recipe and it tasted just as good as the fattier version, the spices definitely help.

I’m headed to bed early again tonight, going to try to knock this thing out as quickly as possible!
