So I have this new rule this year. Sundays are my disconnect day. Disconnect with social media, but really be in the moment at home. It was pretty fabulous.
So, let’s see. STUFT Daddy had the day off yesterday so we made a deal. I got to go outside for a run and he got to go watch the football games with his friends.
I was so excited to get outside just around the house in the chilly weather. I got my Mizuno gear on so darn fast (I had to before STUFT Daddy changed his mind on the deal).
The whole first mile I couldn’t stop smiling because I had just gotten some really exciting racing news before I left the house.
After the first mile though it was a little tougher. The route around my house is hilly and my legs were feeling the miles from Saturday. But, the run was lovely. Really there is something so freeing about running.
7.2 slow recovery miles.
Did not love the random stain on my shirt.
Cool huh? The elevation changes with the map and everything.
So this morning started with five easy miles in Boston while watching Gossip Girl and sporting the oldest shorts I could find.
Gotta love that.
Other randomness from the weekend.
I found just a couple purple sweet potatoes so I can make these a few more times before I really can’t find any more potatoes.
I went through the ones the Frieda’s sent so fast it isn’t even funny.
My last one I recently consumed went down a little like this.
Some other things that went down this weekend that I just feel like sharing.
We got all fancy with dinner Saturday night. Thank you Costco.
I even got dressed up for the occasion.
Ha. Those bacon wrapped scallops turned out pretty well. We were impressed although the eight servings were two at our house.
Oh and they were followed by some delicious dark chocolate.
Nothing beats a good dark chocolate bar. The darker the better. The wine helps too.
Yesterday we were back to the egg white scramble thing for breakfast.
I had a very sorry attempt to make “Spiderman waffles” my sister-in-law told me about with Coach’s Oats pancake mix.
Yes, that is in fact supposed to be Spiderman’s web. I know, I’ll work on it.
I finally have my little sugar loving monster eating apples. He will only eat them like this though.
“In a ball without any skin.”
The boys and I had a little Charger watching party of our own yesterday.
First we watched the game.
Then we played our own.
And celebrated with a little protein cake batter smoothie in STUFT Daddy’s jar and some kona cola Nuun.
Oh and some Love Grown Foods oat clusters may have found their way into my smoothie. Funny how that happens.
And here are a couple motivational pictures I found on instagram yesterday.
I’m into this motivational quote thing lately.
Okay, had to get all the chit chat out of the way because my next post is a giveaway and I will only talk giveaway talk. Well, I’ll try anyway.
One more thing-
A huge group is starting the 21 Day Sugar Detox today. If you’re looking for something to kick those sugar cravings, it’s a pretty awesome program and the new 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook is awesome (review and giveaway later this week)!
Have a marvelous Monday!
Tell me something fun from your weekend.
Or your favorite place you’ve ever run or walked.
