Me time, training and Paleo Eating

I have been MIA the last couple days mainly because I have had no me time and since it is rest week, I made it an effort to spend some quality time with myself! It has been fanastic!

I put in a good 13+ hours last week of training and have been soaking up the fatigue this week.

I have been very good on my Paleo eating and have actually lost 6 lbs! Stepped on the scale after 2 weeks of eating clean and I finally see it paying off. I have to tell you I do cheat only around training times with carbs but for the most part it is all lean meats, fruits and veggies. I even have had no chocolate! I crave it still but they are getting less. I eat fruit instead. Seems to be working out ok.

I have exactly 1 month to go before my next race which is May 1st!! The Mountain Goat 10miler. If Central New Yorkers have not done this race then you are missing some of the hilliest parts of Syracuse. It is a great race and I have done it for the past 5 years.

I leave you with this video! So inspiring! This is the race Im doing!! ahhh!!


  1. I love that I get to be part of the journey, like I have a balcony seat to what you are accomplishing. So seriously proud of you sister!

  2. Great job with the clean eating and 6 pounds lighter! Lighter = faster.
    I love that video and the song. I need to go see it on youtube to see what song that is.
    B2B was my next choice if i didn't get into IMFL. It is still on my to do list of 140.6's. I've heard all good things about that race and I'm sure you are going to love it. I can hardly wait for you to do it and write up a race report.

  3. That looks like a really cool race. Great job on the Paleo thing, I've been trying really hard to cut out the added sugars - man it's hard, but it does seem like the cravings go away after really just a few days if you keep at it - it's just getting there that's hard.

  4. Congrats on the weight loss! Any Paleo recipes that stand out as good energy providers but also taste yummy?

  5. YAH on the weightloss!! I am down 3lbs. I need to go 7 more. Sounds like Paleo is really working for you! Awesome!

  6. Congrats on the weight loss. I am down 5lbs with my clean eating.

    Love the video!

  7. I've been on the course for that race. My best friend from high school lived in downtown Wilmington, NC right near it. I've heard the race is incredible!

    Best of luck!
