Today’s lunch for Angad and I.

Half marathon training :week 5 day 1
Weather: hot as balls.
Today I ran with Angad at the Rutgers trail that runs alongside the river. It was really pretty and not raining this time :) Although on second thought the rain might of helped the 85% humidity-_- I forgot my knee brace at my moms house when I left for the apartment so I had to use an ace bandage. After about 8 minutes of running my knee started to hurt. It eventually went away.. Maybe overcame the pain or ignored it but it was gone for the rest of the run. It only came back in a different form,feeling right,once I started the cool down. I have two more runs in the program and hopefully have time for one free shorter run :)
First time buying dragon fruit :)
Today I spent the whole day off at the beach! About time! I bought a new surfboard yesterday and wanted to finally get back in the water. Taylor and Angad came which is awesome since they are both down to go out and swim rather than “tan”. We left the beach for a few to try out this new vegan place. It was amazing. Angad had Raw sunflower crust bruschetta pizza and a juice. Taylor had a taco made from sunflower meat and a berry smoothie. I had a chia goji seed bowl and a green juice. Day well spen!
Half Marathon Training Week 4 Day 1
Yes yes I know its not actually week for considering I took a runcation when I was recovering my knee. It is the 4th week in the half training plan though. Today I woke up sick and went to bed sick for that matter. That being said..Angad and I missed out 7 am scheduled run. Angad and I shared smoothies before he went to work and I reasoned not running to having a stomach ache (PCOS induces). After doing some house errands I realized I am not going to accept defeat that easily.
Around 10:30 or so I finally laced up and left for a run. It was so hot and humid( thus why I wake up early to run). I thought about doing half and finishing after work, but I know that never happens. After deciding to stick it out I realized running with my nakie knee aka sans brace might not have been the best idea. My knee was fine to run without a brace for half of the program and then it started an annoying pain. Not the pain that leaves you in tears but the pain that annoys the hell out of you. I decided to run home strap up my knee and finish on the treadmill.
Getting back to the stomach ache topic. Yesterday was my planned cheat meal as it was pizza night in my house. My whole family comes over and we make pizza and play cards..best cheat meal ever. Except for the fact that I have been getting sick a lot from PCOS related things. I have been overy tired, lethargic, experiencing hot and cold sweats, feeling weak, and having terrible stomach aches, oh you cant forget the inability to lose a few pounds.
I have just about had it with PCOS and how its controlling my life. Canceling plans because of how I suddenly get sick.. it’s annoying and I am done with it. I decided to give up all meat due to the fact that America is beyond fucked up and all meat has antibiotics and hormones that are bad for everyone and especially those with a hormone imbalance. I am avoiding dairy as well. I say avoiding because I basically live off of greek yogurt so that is going to be a struggle. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am a vegan because I did not 100 percent give up dairy or fish( although I barley have it).
I plan on having mainly a fruit/vegetable based diet. This will be so much easier to execute once I replace my juicer that blew up on me. Along with testing this new nutrition game plan I also picked up a few vitamins and supplements that are suppose to keep PCOS symptoms at bay and help my insulin resistance.
