Hi lovies! I got up not long after 7am this morning and by the time I was done taking care of Rocks it was going on 7:30. This made me pause and decide what to do. Scott and I had a bunch of things to get done today plus I needed to get some blog posts up and this made me doubt if I could squeeze a run in. Add on that all day today we were going to do some SF training today with a few other people and I just wasn’t sure if I could fit everything in. I did eat 1/2 a peppermint stick Luna while deciding on what to do. Finally I just poured some coffee resigned to the fact that running today wasn’t going to happen.
I checked mail and got my two posts up and finished. It was 9am by this point and I thought, WTH, I’m going to run. And the truth is that I couldn’t take sitting in the house any longer.
My mind and body needed that run to help me feel a little more balanced and centered today. I ran and totally could have pushed through to 3.5 miles but I knew I didn’t have the time for that and settled for a quick 2.5. I took Rocks out for his walk after my run and once back home headed straight for the shower. And to wake up my handsome man.
I had another wee splash of coffee when I came downstairs and then I started Sunday breakfast. Thank goodness for leftovers! Any time I make waffles or pancakes I always make a ton of them. The leftovers I freeze and then I can pop one in the toaster oven whenever we need a quick lunch or just feel like breakfast.
I had WW blueberry pancakes. Whoa sexy man in the tank top!
And a big honkin’ fruit bowl with:
- Strawberries (for Scott)
And two chicken breakfast sausages on the side and maple syrup to dip my pancakes in. I had 1.5 of the sausages and 1.5 pancakes and loads of fruit. A little more than I normally eat but since we would be training all afternoon I knew that I needed to fuel my body.
After lunch we trained and trained and trained some more. When my bellah started rumbling, I had to tap out and call it quits. Tired and hungry we headed home. Where I proceeded to snack on these while I decided about dinner.
Corn flax chips, yum! I knew Scott was having leftovers so that left me to figure out eats for. Since I had not had any veggies yet, salad was prime choice. Plus it was easy to assemble without messing up the kitchen and dirtying a lot of dishes.
- Mixed greens
- Sliced almonds
- Sunflower seeds
And smoked salmon! On pumpernickle with a dill spread (made with yogurt) and spinach.
I topped my salad with a small bit of yogurt Caesar dressing. I had slightly more than half of a piece of the smoked salmon and most of my salad. And now I must train and train some more. I’m already in my jammies so I’m hoping not to train for too long and to get some rest. :p I also know there is some red wine and more panettone in my future.
Scott and I have an insanely busy week this week which officially started today. Ugh! I’m hoping to make it through in one piece and there will definitely be some high points I hope to share! Admittedly I’m already wishing for Friday!
