Hey guys! Hope your Monday is treating you well :)
I have been so excited lately to be reading about Caitlin and Meghann's success with the Disney Marathon this weekend! I've been inspired by them to start "training" for something...not sure what just yet, but it can't hurt to have a goal at some point, right?
This morning I had one of Tina's oatmeal pancakes:
I might have made a huge mess...oops :) Sometimes I overestimate how dry this Colorado air is and I made the batter a little runny. It was still heavenly though with about 1 tsp of Smart butter and a drizzle of maple!
I snacked on one of the clementines during work...it was kinda dry, but still very sweet. I think I might save the apple and other clem for tomorrow:
Lunch was some frozen chili (working on finding that recipe again!) that I pulled out of the freezer. I totally forgot that I made this batch SUPER SPICAAAAAAAAAY and was slightly sweating while I ate it. That's when you know it's good!
Finally, around 3 I went on a jog/walk (mostly jogging though) in my new shoes. Guys, these things fit like a glove AND they were only $35! God was surely smiling down at me in Dick's Sporting Goods yesterday :)
I went around 5.5 miles on the path, and it was really nice and relaxing. I stopped for about 5 minutes and did a quick ab workout on a bench, then ran the rest of the way to the office. Tomorrow's supposed to be around 60 and I am so pumped to be able to run in a T-shirt again finally!
As a side note, I've also decided to start writing more about my workouts on here. I talk about food all the time, and my quarter-life crisis, but exercise is a very important part of who I am. I am, after all, a certified personal trainer, so I might as well throw up some info every now and then too!
Dinner with Ken and Leeann tonight...at CiCi's! Now, I know that a pizza buffet might not be the most nutritionally sound, but I fully intend on behaving myself and recording every piece that goes in my mouth to increase my self control. Y'all send good food-eating thoughts my way :)
Are you a runner? If so, do you compete in races or not so much? Why or why not?
