Oodles of Noodles and French Toast

6 03 2009

Yesterday 3-5-09

I did resistance training at the gym, back, biceps, abs and hamstrings, and I did speedwork on the treadmill … 4 miles worth. I have always based my running on distance vs. time instead of running for a certain amount of minutes. This is totally from track days in high school, we would run 400’s or 200’s or 100’s (meters) or pyramids of those distances or combinations etc. and we would usually have the same amount to recover. So using that idea, on the treadmill it’s easy to bump up my speed every 1/4 mile ( 400 m). Knowing that I finished 1/4 mile is more motivating to me, I know I can do that distance and it makes the “mile” go faster as well.

Bottom line, be it minutes, covering the minutes, focusing on the distance, zoning out, Whatever works for you is what is most important because its exercise for a healthy YOU!

Studied for principles exam


Dinner with Andrea is always an instant boost for me! We tried out this new place here, Noodles. It was AWESOME! I had something totally out of the ordinary-
( like my camera/hand shadow ?)

Japanese Udon Noodles with Sauteed Beef ! It was delicious and came with a small green salad on the side. ( in these noodles were sauteed mushrooms, carrots, broccoli and black sesame seeds with sprouts on top)

This place lists their nutrition information on their take out menu’s ( partly) for calories in the small noodle dishes, salads, soups, and their sodium , and their carbohydrates, and their fat grams. It is an easier way to gage just how much is in what you eat!

I will definitely go back because it is really convenient and pretty cheap and fast and delicious!

Today, 3-6-09


I started my day with a little yoga, after all soon I will be starting my day with the 30 day Shred Challenge so I should get used to waking up to exercise again!

I’m not sure if I will take a rest day or not- the past couple days I was thinking I would need to rest but I have felt really fantastic so I will rest when needed!


Study study study


I kind of want to just drive to the beach for the heck of it… 2 hour drive… we’ll see. šŸ˜‰

I never did track, so I guess that’s why I don’t mind going by time or mileage. I swtich back and forth I guess.

Nice use of ricotta.
