Caffeine Water?!, the BEST Spice, and this Week’s Goals

Hello hello! Happy MONDAY! Hope you guys had a great weekend.

Yesterday I woke up around 7:00 (I “slept in”!) and tried this caffeine water drink. It tasted delicious (not too sweet) and gave me the boost I needed to get out the door for a run.

I did five miles along the river (~8:30 min/mile average). It was a gorgeous day in Boston and I couldn’t stop smiling.

I ended my run at a bakery/restaurant and met up with Frankie and his family there. We chatted for a while, then we said our goodbyes and I picked up some Dunks pumpkin coffee.

I was starving by the time I got home so I cooked up two eggs and a ton of veggies. I have days when eggs completely disgust me, and other days when I’m craving them like crazy; yesterday was the latter.

And I used this “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning. SO. GOOD. You need to buy some right now (but it actually made me wish I was eating an actual everything bagel… I’ve been thinking about one since).

Frankie and I chilled and watched TV for a while. It felt really good to just do nothing – we had been running around/entertaining all weekend. I snacked on one of the apples we picked yesterday and also a few unpictured baby carrots.

After a couple hours of hardcore chilling, I made myself get up and go to the grocery store. Our fridge was literally empty so it felt good to restock for the week! I snacked on this Blueberry Cobbler No Cow Bar when I got back.

And around 5:00 I walked to a yoga class downtown. I walked through Boston Common which looked just gorgeous – I love weeping willows!

Yoga was exactly what I needed for my Sunday evening. The class was called “Sunset Chill Flow chill flow”, and it was full of detoxing twists, breath work, a lavender oil massage, candles, and chill music πŸ™‚ .

When I got home I roasted some butternut squash and red onion drizzled in coconut oil and sprinkled with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I also spiralized a zucchini and put all of this together in a big bowl (yes, I ate everything you see in this picture haha).

And for dessert I ate two dark chocolate-covered champagne gummy bears that Frankie’s mom got for us πŸ™‚ . I spent the rest of the night meal prepping for the week, watching the new Kardashian’s ep, and cleaning the apartment. It was the best Sunday and I feel refreshed and ready for a new week. Here are my fitness goals for this week!

  1. Stick exactly to my eating plan each day. No mindless snacking!!
  2. Drink 12 cups of water each day.
  3. Do at least six cardio sessions this week.
  4. Do at least three yoga/strength sessions this week.
  5. Walk at least 10,000 iPhone steps each day.
  6. Sleep 7-8 hours each night.
  7. Think happy thoughts πŸ™‚ .

Hope you guys have a marvelous Monday!

Do you like to spiralize your veggies? What do you usually spiralize?Β Zucchini is my fav! So easy, too.

Tell me one or two of YOUR goals!

  2. I just got a spiralizer and I’m loving spiralized zucchini as well! I haven’t tried that kind of water but I feel like it could be helpful pre-long run. My goal is to get up to 10 total miles of running this week:) Trying to build a base before marathon training truly begins!!

  3. I have been wondering how the TJ’s seasoning is! I’ll have to pick it up next time I go there!

    I am the same way about eggs. Some days they make me feel like I could puke if I think about them, then other days I NEED an egg or two hahah.
