We were all doing the green thing this morning.
I wore my oldest ugliest pair of green shorts for an early morning treadmill run.
Joaquin insisted on wearing this shirt this morning and that I make him bacon and eggs for breakfast.
Funny guy. I did what he asked though.
I did up some eggs and bacon for myself too. I whipped up an egg white scramble, mixed in some kale
and make a quickie grain free microwave English muffin topped with ghee on the side.
We had a good start to the day.
The boys and I actually also picked up our family Christmas cards and mailed a few packages in between teaching some classes today too.
Dang I wish the cards would just address themselves though. Wouldn’t that be cool?
I made a stop on the way home tonight to make a dent in my Christmas shopping and saw these.
I really wanted to buy them, but didn’t.
So, I have a couple tricks that help me get out of bed and on the treadmill first thing in the morning.
I’m not going to lie, it’s not the easiest thing to do, but when it’s over and done before breakfast and before Kelly and Michael and all the mayhem of the day starts, well, it’s darn fabulous.
Today I busted out 7.5 miles treadmill miles.
I had The Holiday to finish and a Gossip Girl episode to watch.
The whole watching the first part of a movie one morning and then saving the rest for the next time you run is a good idea. It makes me want to run so I can finish the movie.
I have to say though, just having this beauty in the house is motivation enough.
Two other things I’ve been doing are wearing my Handful and compression socks to bed so it’s that much easier to just get up and go. No excuses.
See what I’ve got going on right now in fact?
I just love Pro Compression socks. I love them for running, for racing and for recovery.
I also love that they always have fun new colors and designs.
Right now Pro Compression is having a special holiday sale.

just in case you might need a pair to wear to bed so you’re ready to go in the morning too, I have a little giveaway for you.
Yep. It’s about time I started giving away a few of my favorite things for the holidays.
I’m not sure if I’m going to do a full 12 days this year like last year since we only have 8 more days until Christmas, but I’ll be giving some things away in the next few days.
