Hi guys! It feels like Friday to me and is throwing me all out of whack! :p
Last night as we finished watching Tuesday’s Pens game (which was a crazy game, holy cow!) I made us some peppermint tea. We had some PB puffins as well. I probably ate about 8 and drank all of my tea which was sweetened with 1 1/4 tsp of honey. We wrapped up the game around 10ish and I headed to bed. I laid in bed for about 1/2 an hour reading and then it was lights out for me.
I had my alarm set for earlier this morning and woke up before it went off. Then the huge dialogue in my heading started going. I got up and looked out the window and everything was wet. It had started raining last night and I couldn’t tell if it was raining or was done. I got back in bed and decided that I would run later. I would be running one way or another because not running means I’m not piling on the miles! I flip-flopped with myself for about 15 minutes and was just about to decide sleep was good when Scott started snoring and making all kinds of sicky noises. That got me out of bed because I can’t sleep if he’s miserable and making noises.
I had every intention of making it a lazy morning and going out later. When I took Rocky out for his potty run, it was sooooo warm. And humid and really wet so it must have just stopped raining not long before I got up. We had a run-in with a neighbor’s dog which got me irritated. These people drive me bonkers and there’s nothing I can do about it which frustrates me even more. Since now I was fuming and realized it could start raining again soon, I decided to do my run now instead of later.
I wore lighter pants, tee-shirt and my hoodie. I ended up needing the hood because while the temp was mild, the wind was cool and too cold for my ears. Other than my ears being cold, I got hot and unzipped my hoodie. This fall has been so bizarre temperature-wise.
Let me tell you I tore through this run (Because I was Hotangry; Hot, Tired, and Angry ) and my HRM monitor was beeping at me the whole time telling me I was past the “zone” and I tried to keep it there! When I heard it stop beeping I picked my speed back up and kept going.
I did my 2.4 miles in 27 minutes which is the lowest time yet. I burned 313 (a great number) cals and my highest HR was 174. Go me!
I had a huge glass of CS and then another small drink and was back out the door with Rocky. He was crabby because the grass was wet and he doesn’t like being wet (such a princess). So he walked on the sidewalk which he didn’t like, would move to the grass, it was wet so he would move back to the sidewalk. Giving me big boxer sighs the whole time.
I didn’t do any Wii Yoga because I wanted to put my jammies back on and sit down. I also didn’t want any oats because I was craving some yogurt. We’ve been out of big tub Fage for a while now and normally the smaller flavored ones are saved for Sundays. Today I said, screw it, and had a 2% peach Fage with my morning coffee + creamer. I knew this wouldn’t hold me over and that I would be heading back for something else soon. It was so yummy though and hit the spot! Plans are to go out today for a quick trip and pick up more yogurt.
Naturally after I ate the yogurt and was still hungry, I was cursing myself for not making oats. I almost made a batch when I realized I could make that for lunch later if I wanted it. So I opted for a Kashi waffle topped with dark chocolate PB and some cranberries. Awesome! And a sliced apple. And another 1/2 cup of coffee and creamer. I know, crazy! I don’t know what Scott did but this pot was awesome and the best he’s ever made so I had to go back for some more. I only had a few sips of it, not the whole 1/2. I ate all of the waffle and some of the apple.
Scott’s cold is full blown now and he’s pretty miserable. We’re staying home tonight from class. I’m getting a chicken ready to brine and then I’m going to clean the house. I’m going to organize the guest room a little bit and set up shop in there. I love my hunnies but I do not love the sick and do not want to catch the sick. I will miss him and the heating blanket tonight!
