I give up trying to eat almond butter or peanut butter before I go for a run. It always sounds so good first thing when I wake up and so I keep trying to eat it right before I run and then boom… it makes my stomach hurt while running. I think pure carbs before a run is what works best for my stomach. Toast with jam seems to work great lately.
I will just have to wait to eat my beloved almond butter until after my run. Self-control isn’t my strongest attribute.
10 miles for my Monday at a 7:43 pace. I love Monday workouts because I always feel really motivated and ready to go for the week.
We went straight to the playplace right after I finished running so that Brooke could get her workout in. While we were just hanging out my good friend that I used to waitress with 8 years ago waltzed in and we were able to catch up on everything. She was in town visiting and I am very thankful that the playplace could reunite us.
I do want to apologize to her for making her hug me right after I finished 10 miles.
I got to go see my sister’s little baby again and he is so sweet. Newborns are the best.
For dinner I made a big ol’ turkey burger and avocado salad and ate a bowl of Brooke’s shells and cheese.
Growing up my family always did ‘Family Night’ on Monday nights. It was a night where we didn’t plan anything else but hanging out together doing something more special/fun/exciting than the other nights of the week.
Technically, every night is family night with me and the Brookers but I like to try and plan something a little more special for Monday nights for us.
We hung out at the Provo temple water fountains and walked around talking (she is quite the conversationalist lately) for a while.
After Brooke went down for the night I had the perfect ending to the day…. TV and ice cream cake. This season of The Bachelor has taken crazy to the next level.
Megan texted me earlier in the day to match her for our Bachelor night so I did my best and it was pretty darn close. I will always enjoy matching people.

What foods upset your stomach before a run? Or do you have a stomach of steel?
Who watched Bachelor last night? Thoughts?
What day of the week do you have the most motivation to work out?
