This morning I woke up feeling like I wanted to get the mud flying in my life..and powered up with a bowl like this..1/3 c. rice flakes, 1 tsp chia and flax seeds and 1 TB peanuts (no banana–old pic sorry)

I had a cup of tea w/ about 1/4 c. of rice milk and 2 carrots before devouring this awesome bowl of soup. Chan Chua: rice milk w/ extra chili and vegetables!

I have had another cup of tea. I would like to state for the case, that I have been listening to my body today. Madi and I are going to go out and order pasta tonight…to carb load before the Tri on Sunday 🙂 I have made a conscious effort to eat meals which I know are good for me and also knowing that tonight I am going to enjoy my pasta and not shove my face all day long.

After yesterdays very scary reoccurrence of stomach pains, to the point I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital again, I knew that cheating just isn’t in the cards. It’s not only about my weight–but it’s more about my health. It’s poison to my body and I have finally embraced that this is what I have been dealt, so I am going to make the best of it.

I am off to go for a quick swim tonight at the gym and then for a run tomorrow morning. I am really excited about tomorrow and I am even more excited about Sunday.

Have you ran a race or done something where you were really looking forward to it? How did you prepare? What do you wish that you would have known?

    I love girlfriend celebrations!

    My tip for your race? Visualize your transitions….do you have everything you need to make a smooth move from one event to the next?

    Don’t over think it…enjoy every moment!
