Hey everyone! How’s your Thanksgiving break???….well….I am being really slacking in posting these days! gotta catch up!
I was doing some “running training” these days, and surprisingly, I find FUN in running! During that 30 min session, I accelerate my speed, finally , to 6 !! don’t laugh at me if you are a professional runner ( I know that 6 is your cooling down speed ) . When I first start to run in 2006, my speed is 4.6. well, you call it power walk. But after three years of cardio workout, I gradually increase my speed to 4.8, 5.0, 5.2, and last weekend, I tried to alternate the speed in the second half , from 5.2 to 5.6, to 5.8, and to 6.0. I clearly feel the muscles on my thigh, and its telling me that running is such a great work out. So, I’ll keep the momentum and keep young!!! (even my 26th birthday is coming in three weeks!) So here is my fun running trainnning session:
Total Time : 30 min.
1 min: 4.7 warm up.
10 min: @5.2 running.
5 min: @5.6 running.
3 min: @5.8 running.
3 min: @6.0 running.
3 min: @ 5.7 running.
3 min: @ 4.6 , incline @ 11.5 , power walk.
2 min. @ 4.2. no incline, cool down.
Time pass so quickly and you’ll never get bored with that alternating speed !
Okay, back to eats.
these days I begin to pay attention to my snacking behavior. and I am scared to find out that :
My snack choice is a bit ….calorie loaded (nuts) …..and some time sugar ladened (cereal, hot choco) … :-(
it’s kinda getting on my nerves…most snacks sold on shelves are not perfectly in line with the idea of healthy snacking options. So I decided to make my own.
Objective : Small portion (1/4 cup), High Fiber , Low sugar , Low Fat, hold hunger. and most importantly, generate Dopamine that makes me happy!!!
So, I made this: Fiber One Ginger Muffin:
Why Fiber One ??? Because I put:
All fiber-rich ingredients !! Plus, I grind some ginger to give it a spicy flavor that perfect for winter days.
it’s like 1/4 cup sized, low fat, low sugar, low cal snack. Yah !! we are good to go!
My dear friends , What do you normally eat for snack? ?? How many snacks do you take a day???
For the Mushroom upside down omelet (love this fancy name, wahahaha) , it’s pretty easy:
Did you happen to see those little browned mushrooms on the backside of my omelet???
cheese, just a bit.
so first brown the mushroom , till the juice is all out. then pour in the eggs till its half done.
Top with cheese, and fold it. Da da, done!!
