I gave my treadmill some loving this morning. It has been way too long since we spent quality time together. I haven’t ran since my 1/2 marathon because I honestly didn’t feel like it. I wanted to take fitness classes the last few days and mentally I just wasn’t into running.
I am glad I didn’t ‘force’ myself to run because when I waited until I was ready, I loved it. I had the ultimate runners high….kind of like when I don’t have ice cream for a few days and then I eat it and I fall in love all over again. I ran 7 miles and it really felt so great.
If you ever worry about losing your fitness from taking a few days off from running, don’t worry…it takes more than 2 weeks to lose any endurance/running fitness. If your body needs a break and mentally you just aren’t feeling it, take some time off and try something new for a few days!
Question for you: Whenever my students see my breakfast they all think my breakfasts look disgusting. All it is is cottage cheese and fruit mixed up in a bowl. One kid said looking at it gave him a stomach ache It hurts my soul that they think something so delicious looks so gross. What do you think? Does cottage cheese look disgusting to you?
Billy really loves it when I come home with multiple bags from the mall. Little did he know that the bag was full of stuff that I NEEDED (definitely not just a want). For the fitness classes that I have been taking I am really digging workout capris. Since we don’t have a washer and dryer, I run out of my 2 pairs fast, that only means one thing…..buy more. While I love my lululemon capris I am not a millionaire.
Old Navy, you made me happy. Posing took place in the bathroom before my class last night and taken quickly because someone was walking in right as I was standing in front of the mirror taking a picture of my leg. They didn’t give me a weird look at all.
These capris were $22 and I am loving them. The waist band is extremely comfortable and the material is super soft. You can find them online HERE in case you are looking for some winner capris and then we can all be twins. (For some reason they are $26 online and $22 at the store?) I also ran in them this morning and they were awesome to run in. I guess I just need to wait and see how they wash before I go buy 10 more pairs. No, Old Navy is not paying me or anything to say this…I am just really liking them.
Lunch today was beyond delicious. That is some beautiful blue jello, this is Utah after all.
Candied nuts should always belong in salads and so should that poppyseed dressing. I added cottage cheese after the picture because I am obsessed and hoping to overdose on the stuff.
Last but not least….
Spin playlist from Tuesday morning! For songs 4-9 we did rolling hills and it was killer. One song would be a HEAVY hill climb followed by a sprint downhill (tension of a flat road) and repeated 3 times. We were all just a little sweaty afterwards.

-I am sorry but I don’t think I will ever be able to do the green monster thing…the look just gets to me. I think it weirds Billy out a little bit when I smother my baked potato in ketchup.
