Every morning I wake up with way too much energy. I want to jump around and get everything done. I am really good at being lazy at night but in the mornings I go full out. Last night when I was pretty tired I told myself that I was going to have the easiest, laziest morning in the whole wide world today and space my energy out throughout the day and that is exactly what I did.
My set-up: A soft blanket, the first of 12 water bottles I went through, Biggest Loser, the Boppy (the case for that thing is in my car still in Utah… my sister is driving it here soon though!) and just imagine me sitting there for 7 hours straight in leggings, a race t-shirt with at least 9 stains on it and holding the cutest spiky haired baby.
For breakfast I had a bowl of yogurt, cottage cheese, fruit and granola. My poor stomach is going to be very sad when my mother in law leaves and we don’t have food stocked for us daily. About an hour after bfast I had a pb and j sandwich on sourdough bread (yes, that is weird) because my body has decided to make up for lost time and eat all the pb possible.
For lunch I had a big old salad and an raisin apple walnut bar. One thing making me extremely happy is that I got to the end of my bag of frosted mini wheats (don’t worry I have three more). This means I am just hours away from an entire bowl of the sugary crumbs. Sugar high of the century is about to happen.
During my relaxing time this morning while Brooke was napping I read a little more from Mile Markers because as you know I am obsessed with that book. It was exactly what I needed to read today. Knowing ourselves and what we are capable of at the moment is so incredibly important. We have to adjust to our situations and learn when we need to push and when we need to slow down.
From that same chapter she included something else that I absolutely loved!
Isn’t comparing running to real life the coolest thing? During labor with Brooke my MIL kept making comparisons of what I was going through and a marathon, it worked wonders for me!
