Yay for sleeping early!!
Last night, as I was writing my post on my NYC adventures, I couldn’t keep my eyes open at all.
So I gave my body what it needed and fell asleep at 11PM.
And like clockwork, I woke up at 7AM this morning, ready for my first run since last Wednesday
I grabbed a few Craisins for energy and went out the door for a six mile run.
It was a tough one, since my legs didn’t seem to remember how to run, and my feet were sore from all the walking/running around a restaurant I’ve been doing.
But the whole time, I was telling myself I was in a 10K race, and there was someone right behind me. It was a trick I learned in spin classes and I stubbornly refused to let this person pass!
After an hour, I was back at home and starving.
Yogurt bowl to the rescue!
This mix was my usual of Greek yogurt, cinnamon, chia seeds, granola and a banana.
After the photo shoot, I added some soy milk to thin out the super-thick and cloying texture of the yogurt mix.
Delicious and perfect refueling
It really felt so good to get a run in at the beginning of the day. I’ll need to get used to running as soon as I wake up, right when the temperatures are the coolest.
And later in the day, I satisfied that sweet tooth with a square of Lindt 50%. I got bars and bars of these when Lindt had a moving sale, and now that supply is down to one measly bar
Time to stock up!
Now I’m off to get ready for work … six more hours until I can land in my comforting bed again!
Tell Me About You!
