Hi guys! Do you want to hear about my exciting evening? Okay here goes! Last night we left SF a little late and after we walked Rocks, it was after 10pm, pushing 10:30. I put on my jammies, washed my face and then crawled into bed and chatted with Scott while listening to boxer snores in the background. Then it was 11:10 and past my bedtime so I called it a night.
I know how jealous you are of the OHC night life right now.
I did sleep in a bit this morning and got up close to 7:30am. I took care of Rocks and then changed into running clothes. Another cool morning today so running skirts were out. I did 3.5 miles at a crazy slow pace, 11:25/mile or something. Slooowwww but my knee didn’t bother me at all! YaY!
I had a bit of CS and took Rocky for his morning walk. I stretched and then had a glorious morning shower. Because I got started on my day late, by the time I was eating breakfast it was later than I usually eat so I kept it simple.
Yogurt mess and coffee.
- 2% Fage
- Frozen raspberries
- Sliced banana
- Chocolate granola
It was delish and very filling as I couldn’t even finish that bowl. I did some bloggy things and office work for the longest time because that breakfast held me over really well! I was surprised since normally yogurt + granola, while yummy doesn’t last too long in my bellah. Which is why I will eat that if it’s a late morning because I’ll still be hungry for lunch and it won’t throw off my schedule too much.
Today however, it held me over very well! A later lunch on Tuesday isn’t a big deal since we have MT late afternoon and we eat dinner after class. Today’s lunch was a bit different! Since I wasn’t super hungry, I wanted a more snack type of lunch and to be able to pick at things.
I made a snack plate:
- Kashi roasted veggie crackers
- 365 wheat crackers
To dip into some hummus. Smoothies almost were a no show today because I thought it might be too much food. But someone pitched a tantrum that would rival that of a seasoned tantrum throwing 2 year old.
And it wasn’t me.
I obliged and made us some smoothies. I gave the new blender another chance today taking the speed to the highest level it has, “Icy Drink”. I know, right? It did better but not the best.
- 1.5C unsweetened cranberry juice
- .5C POM
- 1C water
- Shredded carrot, parsnip, zucchini
- Frozen mango
- Frozen pineapple
- Frozen blueberries
A bit of a twist today! I had shredded a bunch of veggies already for salads this week and since we didn’t have a salad today, I decided to use what would have gone on a salad in the smoothie. It worked out really well!
Fabbo lunch! I missed hummus so it tasted particularly amazing today. And I loved that I could just pick at whatever I wanted and take my time eating. I’m a snacker at heart and love to be able pick and munch on stuff.
Here’s the deal, my excitment and motivation for running is going down the tubes! Meh. :/ Let me rephrase: I still love running and getting out the door. But I’m not jumping out of bed to run like I used to and I’m not concerned at all about building my miles back up. I officially signed up for a 1/2 in October hoping that helps sparks some motivation. And I have my 4miler race at the end of this month. I need some freaking motivation to get my butt out the door and building my miles back up! Anyone running a race or gearing up for something? Even if you’re not running, but participating in some event, wanna be motivation buddies?
