January 4th, 2009: Morning

Hi guys!  Last night Scott and I enjoyed a 2nd glass of wine on the couch while watching Wall-E.  Oh what a sweet movie.  I’m not big on cartoon and animation movies but I loved this movie.  After it was over we watched some House Hunters.  We had a bit of white wine left in a bottle from NYE. :o  So we had a small glass of that and a late night snack.

Pumpkin latte ice cream.  So good and totally hit the spot.  At 11pm I headed up to bed and read for about half an hour before deciding it was lights out time.

I slept till 8am which wasn’t too bad!  It started raining last night which surprised us because there had been clear skies all day long.  It was wet when I got up this morning but not raining which was a good sign.  I got Rocky taken care of and settled in for some coffee and breakfast before my run.

Peppermint coffee which was perfectly made this morning!  And some 2% fage with the last bits of chocolate Bear Naked and 1 peppermint bark square.  It’s Sunday and the last day of vacation so I figured what the heck, go for it.  An awesome way to end breakfast. :D

I came this close –> <– to not running this morning.  I kept thinking how I did a bunch yesterday, it was rainy gloomy outside, and staying in jammies seemed the way to go.  I got myself out of that funk though by reminding myself that:

It was Sunday so for sure no construction guys.
Today is the last day of Booty Buster and I need points even though I have no hope of placing at all.
Tomorrow is my rest day, I can rest then.
Remembering how bloated I feel when I don’t work out.
2009 goal of always making time for exercise/run.
Telling myself that once I got out there if I wasn’t feeling it I could stop and go back home.

I was out the door!  It was warm today so I only needed one pair of pants and my hoodie.  It was so nice!  Beautifully cool but not bitter cold.  I had loads of energy and was busting out my run.  A couple times it started sprinkling and the cool drops felt so good on my face as I ran.

I did my normal 3.5 loop without worrying about stupid construction guys.  I did my run in 41 minutes and as I was walking up the driveway the sprinkling got a little heavier.  By the time I made it inside and into the kitchen for my CS it was raining.  Guess I would have to take Rocky later.

I drank my CS, changed out of my running clothes and plopped down on the couch with my laptop.  Scott got up and I chatted with him for a bit.  Then I headed upstairs for a shower.  After my shower I sorted laundry and brought a load downstairs.  Then I started on lunch.

Sunday Breakfast

Easy lunch or Sunday Breakfast today.  Toasted beer bread (of course!) this time with more cheddar on top.  Oh my!  Scrambled eggs (3 eggs + 2 egg whites) with chipped ham, mustard, and hot sauce.  In the middle are 4 clems and 2 oranges.  I ate all of my eggs and only 1/2 of my bread slice.  I had a good bit of clems and oranges though.

After that we cleaned up the kitchen and I started a load of laundry.  Now I don’t know what we’re going to do.  It’s the last day of vacation so we better do something fun.  Or fun for us I should say. :p

  1. Good job on getting out that door for your run! So funny about the construction guys…what’s up with them all the time?

    Your lunch looks fab!
