I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but today is a big day for me. In order to prep for a special 500th milestone, I spent yesterday eating my favorite meals and fueling up for lucky #500.
Breakfast was a little different, and instead of my pb egg white oatmeal, I went for 3 oz of sweet potato mixed with shredded chicken.
Wow, this was such a good combo! I also had 1.5 cups of steamed veggies. I pretty much switched breakfast and lunch around.
Lunch, as you can guess, was an egg white scramble and my pb egg white oats… in a Chobani Vanilla Chocolate Chunk container. Ermergherd!
This gets better each time I have it. This is one love that I will never grow old of.
I did something weird yesterday afternoon. I was in a 2 hour meeting turned 3 hours from 2-4:45, so by the time I was back at my desk, I was hangry. I mixed 1 tbsp of pb with cottage cheese. It was weird, that’s all I’m going to say.
After work, I headed back to my parents to whip up a very special batch of the Best Cookies & Cream Protein Pancakes Ever. My mini blender is there and I also really just love being there on nice days. I find I have more motivation to be active after work when I’m home, where as at my apartment, I’d just plop on the couch and watch TV.
Back to the pancakes.
That’s number 500, not “SOD,” as my Dad thought it was. Do you know how difficult it is to spell with pancake batter? My Mom was trying to talk to me and I had to shush her because I really needed to concentrate.
Ok, so what’s this #500 all about? Well, this morning I completed my 500th straight day of running. That’s right, I haven’t taken a day off in 500 days. At first, my goal was a year, and then I just kept going and found no reason to break it.
Remember that time I injured my shoulder and strained my obliques? Yup, that didn’t end my streak. My parents would even come in the basement to check on me when I was running to see if I was ok. There were many times they walked in while I was intensely holding my side or my shoulder or grimacing in pain, but they let me go on. Not sure if that makes them awful or incredibly awesome parents? Incredibly awesome in my book. 😉
Anyways, after my special batch of 500 pancakes, I went for a 2 mile walk in the neighborhood, before heading back to my apartment and digging into a cup of Stonyfield Greek Caramel yogurt for dessert!
This was a recycled picture because when I got home there was no power and without power, I can’t show you again how amazingly beautiful this cup is.
And this mornings run, well it was awesome. I had a great 500th run and it looked a little something like this:
- 3.5 mile run
- 2 rounds of the 7 minute workout
- .5 mile run
Awesome way to start my Thursday!
What’s the longest running streak you have ever had or currently have?
