Spring Clean Eats: Day 11, Return to Sender

Pulled pork, mustard greens, mandarin orange Let’s start the post off with the great news first then we can discuss how the day just fell apart after that.

Early morning, I got the dogs taken care of and I headed out for my run.  I took Wednesday off since I had a really horrible night’s sleep but Thursday I started the day off feeling great.

I did my normal 1 mile loop and I RAN THE WHOLE THING.

Hellz yes!  No walk breaks and no legs that felt really tired.  I pushed myself to see if I could do it.  I told myself that I had to run until I got to the last street by my house and I made it.  Since that’s the end of the run, I said I needed to run until I hit that one mile mark.

And I did!  Hooray!  I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to be a distance runner again since the elevation totally kicks my ass but I can see myself at least getting up to 10K distance.

Oh the run is still slow as molasses on a winter’s morning but I did it!  I can see the light at the end of the running tunnel.

Thankfully I got my run done in the morning because the rest of the day was spent on the couch and making multiple runs to the bathroom.  UGH

For breakfast I sauteed up some mustard greens and added in the leftover pulled pork.  I seasoned all that with a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a small bit of maple syrup to cut the bitterness of the greens.

This is where things started to go down hill.  That pork didn’t sit right with me and I was paying for it the rest of the day.

Lunch was basically a snack because I couldn’t keep much in my system so I didn’t want to over do it.

Apple, almond butter, mug of broth

I had a large mug of broth for some powerhouse nutrients and a large apple with some almond butter.

Stomach churned the rest of the day but I was able to stay out of the bathroom.  Whew!

Oven fries

Dinner was also very light because again, I didn’t think I could handle anything heavier.  We had some oven fries, both were seasoned with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder.  One set had some shredded cheddar added.

Oven cheddar fries

I was able to keep that down as well!

I hate to blame the BBQ takeout but this all started after I ate that for breakfast.  No. More.

More light foods are on the menu for today, not taking any chances!
