One thing I get asked a lot is about what I eat before a workout. Get ready for a very in-depth answer;)
If I am running early (at like 5 and we are doing 10 or less miles)—> Nothing. It is usually too early for me to even process what I am about to do let alone think about eating.
If I am running early and we are doing a tough workout/speed work/10+ miles then I plan ahead and have a banana in my car ready for me to eat on the way to the workout.
If I am running a little bit later in the morning then I have a yogurt or banana or toast when I first wake up at around 7.
If I am going to a pump class or spin class and running a few miles after then I have an egg with cheese on top on some squaw bread (like this morning!!) about an hour before the class.
I have real breakfast right after finishing my workouts and it usually involves oatmeal, yogurt creation, cereal or an omelet these days.
If it is Sunday morning, I am having chocolate chip pancakes with Brooke.
I woke up Sunday morning to a text from my brother that lives in Kentucky and all it had was this picture. This was probably the best way to start off my day.
As you know, I go through phases and become really obsessed with something for a few weeks and then move on to the next thing. Lately, I can’t obtain enough candles. This is my current favorite and I light it every single day.
I can’t even put into words how happy it makes me that Brooke loves to bake with me. I am liking this 2.3 years old stage.
Some people have asked about where I got Brooke’s parrot sweater from—> I have been getting a lot of her stuff from HELLO SPARROW because I am in love with everything that they make. I love their unique designs and prints and everything is super soft and durable.
Ashley Olsen out for her run in a button up shirt. I would probably chafe to death if I attempted such a thing.
I am very upset at my sister for giving me one of these cookies because now I will not be able to even drive by this place without stopping to get one.
Loved Laura’s instagram quote the other day!
This was my afternoon snack today. I am just hoping that the nutrients in my baked sweet potato cancel out the diet coke. Every now and then, I just need a lil’ caffeine.
Give me the details about what you eat before you workout! Does it change depending on your workout?
What was your snack today?
What is the most uncomfortable thing you have ever ran in?
Any tangents to share?
