Happy Saturday, friends! It’s finally a sunny day here in central Illinois. It’s been June Gloom for the past week or so, so a little sunshine is totally welcome
I had a good time reading everyone’s comments about eating breakfast before early morning exercise. A lot of you don’t, or even can’t eat breakfast before working out! Sometimes I feel this way too, but I’ll just eat a small bite of banana to provide a little fuel. However, when all is said and done, do what works for you, right?
Yesterday after training all my clients, I headed out to the trails for an impromptu 6 miler. The 6 mile run was actually supposed to be this morning, but here was my dilemma: Had a hair appointment (just a highlight and trim – I’ll post pics when I don’t have crusty eyes and morning face ) yesterday afternoon and I wanted my blowout to last a couple days. A 6 mile run the next morning is NOT conducive to making a blow last – at least not when you sweat like I do.
Anyway, the run was moved to yesterday, and I cannot believe how fast and easy the 6 miles were! I haven’t had a good run over 5 miles in I don’t know how long, so this was pretty encouraging. Also encouraging? The Florence and the Machine soundtrack. If you’re looking for a good workout jam, listen to this album!
I had a lunch somewhere in there, too:
And about a bajillion unpictured Stacy’s pita chips
After the hair appointment, Shane and I decided to grab a bite to eat in the uptown area of Normal.
This is one of our go-to spots. On one side is a meat sub shop, and on the other is a vegetarian café. Ironic, but it works for couples like us! haha
I ordered the hummus + veggie wrap and some oven fries.
And Shane had some sub that even looked delicious to me:
Plus we shared a cookie from the dessert case
After eating, we weren’t quite ready to head home yet, so we hung out at an Irish pub at a table on the sidewalk and had a couple beers.
It was such a relaxing night, but really a lot of fun!
Oh, and we’re on episode 2, season 1 of Mad Men, which we watched last night. Any Mad Men fans here? Does it get better? We’re both kinda “meh” about it right now…
Time to make some juice and then take Niko on a walk! Plans for the day don’t include too much! Just need to film some exercises for a couple virtual clients (and for the ab post that is still on its way to the blog!) and pick up a wedding shower gift.
Have a great Saturday, friends!
Have you guys heard about the latest craze in hair styles?
(that’s Kim, from Sunny State of Mind)
All the girls at Station 710 had these fishing lure feathers in their hair. I actually think they look very cool. I almost got one! Then I chickened out. Maybe I’ll go back and get one (just one!) soon?
