Diet tip of the day: I really don't eat much protein on a regular basis, so I decided to add some to my lunch. I usually make a salad to take to school with me, and today I topped it with tuna for an added protein punch! I plan on continuing this, as well as adding hard-boiled egg to mix things up (once I get to the grocery store for more eggs).
Today's Training: I was scheduled for a 2-mile run, and my goal was to run for the duration of the route. I like the start of this run, where I run around a lake in a really pretty neighborhood. The last half is also through a really pretty neighborhood, and it's relatively flat. Major downside is that I had to cross a major road two different times. This really slowed my time down, but I did run in place as I waited at the crosswalk. I ran 23:47, which is much slower than I usually run. I'm not too worried about the pace right now, though, as I really just want to get in the training routine!
Faith Find: Today was a great day to really focus on prayer throughout the day. I'm really glad I did, because there was a situation today that I needed God's help with. A situation came up where I wound up being correct about something I'd had a disagreement with a co-worker earlier in the school year. I wanted to go to my teacher friend, Danielle, at school and point it out. I realized, though, that I would be boasting and prideful. I prayed that God would help me resist the urge to do so, and luckily I did! Praise God for being reliable!
Those are a few brief thoughts on the day. Tomorrow is a strength training workout (I'm thinking of doing a circuit workout from this blog that I'm really becoming obsessed with), and hopefully Joe will go to the gym with me!
