Back to normal scheduling= I get to hang out with this little face all day. I like normal scheduling a lot.
We had very ripe bananas and ginormous blueberries that were begging to be turned into muffins. We made Whole Wheat Banana Bread Blueberry Muffins but we also added granola on top. My whole family loved them and my pregnant sister especially loved them. She is starting to feel better (she has been pretty sick) and so it is fun that she is craving different foods now. My biggest cravings with Brooke were bagels, lemonade, donuts and meat.
I am more than okay with the fact that Brooke loves feeding me, especially when it involves amazing watermelon.
Dinner was from my sister’s garden and my dad’s grill. Summer meals trump all of the other seasons because everything is just so fresh tasting in the summer.
I love finding Brooke hanging out with my dad. They have a really great relationship.
Welp, the 21 days are over and I definitely enjoyed these brownies last night. I feel like being off of desserts/treats really helped me to start eating a lot more healthier foods throughout the day BUT I am glad to be done. I missed desserts dearly. I’ll now be doing the whole ‘moderation’ thing with desserts.
Will I ever go 21 days without desserts again? No, unless someone forces me or pays me a million dollars to do it.
So, this kind of freaked me out a little bit yesterday:
I haven’t been sure if I would be able to do the St. George Marathon or not until this last Saturday. I wanted to see if I could do 16 miles on Saturday and if I could = I would do the marathon. I did the 16 miles and that gave me a boost of confidence that I will be able to get in 1 or 2 20 milers before the marathon so I should be good to go. I will be lucky to get my endurance up to 26.2 miles by October 4th let alone my speed so I will just focus on continuing to get strong and enjoy training. I won’t be worrying about time or speed very much.
PS a friend and I were texting about a tough decision she is trying to figure out and I just thought it was funny how much our thought processes differ before a run compared to after a run.
TIME TO CELEBRATE BROOKE’S BIRTHDAY!!!
