Happy Lunar New Year everyone! 新年快乐！How are you guys doing today? I’m doing great, thank you very much. How was your Superbowl Weekend?
I started my Sunday off with the Super Sunday Fun Run 10K. I ran it pretty slow, however. I ran it in 1 hour 10 minutes and 38 seconds. I know, that is super slow. I really am still getting back into the swing of running. Even after a month of getting back into it, it is still hard. I gained a little weight from taking December off of working out (I was sick). Plus, it didn’t help that I was cramping. I am just happy that I finished it. It was really nice weather though.
Before I get into anything else, here were my workouts last week.
And, here is my plan for the week.
Sunday- 6 mile run
Tuesday- 6 mile run + abs
Wednesday- Jillian Michael’s DVD
Thursday- 5 mile run + abs
Friday- 4 mile intervals
My meals for lunch will vary. I might make pasta or I may take leftovers from dinner to eat for lunch. I ate leftovers last week and ended up not making any pasta. However, I will make some pasta this week.
This post is just a guideline for me to outline my workouts and meals. I tend to change my mind on what to eat or do for a workout half the time but I always have this to fall back on.
In other news, I baked the nian gao (年糕) and I made the prosperity cupcakes (发糕). Below are the pictures.
I have the recipes up on my old blog.
As I mentioned earlier, I gained a little weight from December and I want to lose it and tone up. I made a bet with a few coworkers to lose 10 pounds by April 16th. It starts this week. I won’t post my weight on here but I will let you guys know if I gain or lose weight each week. And, do not worry. I will not be dieting. I just want to eat healthier and get back into working out. I don’t care if I win or lose the bet.
That is it for now. I will update you guys about my internship next week. I will also be writing a post about something we are talking about in my Psychology of Women class. I feel like it’s something very important to talk about.
What’s your plan for the week?
