Menu Plan | Week of February 10, 2014

I have really been lacking in motivation the past week or two.  I haven’t been on a run in over a week.  Not so good when I have already registered for my first marathon this fall.  To get my run in I really have to get up at 5 and hit the treadmill.  The problem:  my bed is just too warm and cozy and it’s hard to convince myself to head to the treadmill in the dark, cold basement.  This week I have enlisted the help of a friend who is going to text me at 5 on the days I want to run and I’ll text her when I get up and start my run.   Having some accountability to someone else will make me more likely to myself out to bed.  I hope.

I think getting up earlier will really help my motivation all around as it will give me time to get in a Bible Study and a little quiet time before everyone else gets up.  Plus, I always do feel better after I do an early morning run.  I feel more accomplished the whole day.

Next week I’ll let you know how it went!

Here’s the menu plan for this week:

Monday:  Lentil Sweet Potato Soup from Eat, Live, Run

  1. Hi Jamie! Fellow Michigan food blogger stopping by to say hello :) Congrats on signing up for your first marathon! I’ve never done one, but good for you, that’s awesome! This meal plan looks healthy, colorful and delicious!

  2. I just came across your blog while searching for a vegan oatmeal sausage recipe and I’m so thrilled! I read your post about needing to be up earlier to be more motivated, have more time for Bible study, and to run and I felt like I had wrote that myself, well minus the running part! 😉 I do need to get into the habit of excercising again, I just had a baby 6 weeks ago! I am also from Michigan so I feel like I have a connection with you! Will be looking forward to reading more of your posts! Awesome blog, thank you!

    • Thank you so much Kylee!
