What an amazing day today!! After what seems like weeks of cold, gloomy weather, the sun came out today
It was PERFECT weather for some outdoor exercise.
Shortly after posting this morning, I laced up my sneakers, grabbed Niko, and headed out for a leisurely walk:
What? You don’t have the super-speedy-power-walking skills to walk 5.46 miles in 68 minutes?
OK, ya caught me. I cheated. The first 4 miles were spent running. Yes, I ran today! Although I said it’d be a complete rest week this week, I woke up feeling better than I have in days, and found it impossible not to take advantage of this weather with a run. I didn’t run intervals or anything, and kept the run to a slower than usual pace, and enjoyed it thoroughly.
After my four miler, I grabbed Niko and finished up with a 25 minute walk
Walked in the door, opened fridge, inhaled watermelon:
Would you believe me if I told you I only have about a cup left from the massive amount we had on Tuesday?! Thankfully Shane’s a watermelon fan, too, and we steady demolished that thing!!
Then after showering and dressing, more watermelon with breakfast, as I kicked back and watched Live with Kelly.
Steel cut oats, full fat organic Greek yogurt (more on that tomorrow,) dried cherries, almond butter, and honey.
Fabulous combination that left me sad when my spoon hit glass.
Love the cherry bites!
Then I peeled myself off the couch to get ready and head into the gym to train and work. I’ve got a pretty long day ahead of me, but I actually have a lot of studying to do throughout the day. I haven’t studied since I was preparing to take my ACE exam! Any guesses as to what I’ll be studying for? Hint: it will give me another title
Last night I found out that a pound of ground pork makes a lot of meatballs – enough for both Shane and myself to have it for lunch today!
Yes that’s last night’s photo. Just picture the same food, cold, in a Tupperware container – but it still tasted just as good.
I also have some watermelon (LOL, surprise surprise) and some trail mix to get me through the day.
What’s your job title(s) or initials?
Mine: CPT (certified personal trainer, sports nutritionist, gym manager…. hey, no longer a project planner!
