Along with planning out my workouts, I plan out meals. I think the idea of planning out a menu is a little restrictive for some. I could see how it would be restrictive for families on the go, or for more creative types. But, since I am neither of those the menu planning works out really well for me.

Tonight we had fish & grits. Occasionally some of the guys that work with my Dad stay over bc it’s a long drive back to where they live… So tonight we cooked up a big mess of fish & grits. That’s the bomb y’all, fish and grits is the tits. mmmmm
Y’all will be happy to know that I ran outside for the first time since July. Oh yes. outside. and it was hot as heck. oh man was it hot.
I left the house a little before 6. It was a little cloudy with a slight breeze so I thought it would make for a cool(er) run. wrong.
My schedule says 3 miles so I set out for a little 3 mile jaunt. the first 1/2mi was a little rough. My knees were stiff and achy. I am kind of wondering if it’s my shoes, or if I’ve just adjusted to running on the treadmill. I’m hoping it’s the latter for at least another month or so.
I stopped to stretch around 1/2mi and that seemed to loosen up my knees. The last 2 miles were uneventful. Over all a decent run. I am happy to have put my shoes back out on the pavement. My time was 28:32,, 9:30. good enough. Plus 20pushups x 2 sets.
living life, one pushup at a time
