It’s only been three days since I’ve returned from the Congo, but it still feels like a lifetime ago. There are things I miss when I get back from bigger meets like this one – the teammates I rarely get to see, meeting so many new people, the feeling of pride that comes with competing for Ghana on an international level – just to name a few. Overall, my time Brazzaville, Congo was OK at best. A lot of things didn’t go as expected, but I’ve learned over time to just roll with the punches and make the best of every opportunity I’m given…
There was a salmon sale at my local grocery store this past week, so I ended up grabbing a filet.
The past week was pretty simple and straight forward when it came to food. Maybe it was because I was so creative last week, or maybe it was because of midterms,who knows. I had a lot of the same meals because I either found myself cooking in bulk (pasta sauce) or keeping it simple (eggs, chips, potatoes, etc). We’ll see how I feel during this week with food.
I didn’t realize until I made this post that I ate a ton of food this week. I had my usual pasta dishes, a ton of sandwiches, and even baked!
A week in which I make the switch to brown rice, green tea, and discover that tuna goes great with rice. I switched to whole wheat pasta years ago, and I don’t even notice the difference now.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been known by friends and teammates as always eating whatever I like, whenever I like. However, as I became more involved in track, my attention slowly shifted to also wanting a healthier lifestyle.
