I had a nice long chat with this gorgeous girl at the gym yesterday. Kristi is an incredible athlete and she’ll be going to Kona for the IRONMAN World Championships! I need her to give me some serious swimming and biking lessons.
I had a run and some strength training on the schedule for yesterday. I was in the mood to run but weights… like usual, I wasn’t stoked about doing them. I decided that the only way I would actually do the strength training portion of my workout was if I started and finished my run at the gym so that all I had to do was walk inside the gym to do this strength routine and some extra core work. I knew that if I went inside my house after my run that the gym wasn’t going to happen.
PS I’m all about using tricks to get myself to do the workouts I’m not exactly stoked about doing. IE I trick myself when I have a track workout that I am not thrilled about—> I tell myself I am just going to do ONE more interval and then I get to stop… and that somehow gets me to finish the entire workout.
Made a stop for what I was craving at 9 a.m.
Jess (my trail running bff) had her baby!!! I took one of her favorite cookies over to her (from Swig—> if you ever visit Utah you have to go there for their cookies. ridiculously good) and got to hold her little man. Not much better than holding a newborn.
The guy and I are craving eating healthier foods after our vacation of eating out/junk food.
This meal was a la Costco: Rotisserie chicken and avocado salad for Monday night dinner.
And breakfast burritos for dinner last night.
For dessert I made (myself… he wanted nothing to do with this random mixture;)—> a cooked apple, greek yogurt, granola and almond butter mixture.
Brooke gets home on Thursday night and it can’t come soon enough. I have come to the conclusion that moms (well, loved ones in general…) just aren’t made to be away from their little ones this long (it has been a week). I can’t even go in her room without crying at this point. I miss that little thing so ridiculously much and I am more than ready for her to come home.
BUT I am happy that she is having such a good time with her dad and that she has learned how to fix a car with her stethoscope.
Our healthy streak will be broken with Donuts for Brooke’s birthday celebration. We are going to try to up American’s donuts per capita problem.
Missing anyone today?
