Today has been a great day so far. For breakfast I had some breakfast pie. I had a giant and delicious apple mid morning, an awesome work out over lunch, then a huge salad with a new dressing. The salad was mixed greens, half a cucumber, and some ham. The dressing was a soy vinaigrette and went a little something like this:
Soy Sauce Vinaigrette
1 tbl EVOO
1/2 tbl soy sauce
1/2 tbl lemon juice
1/4 tbl apple cider vinegar
**I ended up scaling up this recipe a little bit because I needed more for my salad, I would suggesst these ratios when you scale.
I mentioned I had hoped to do a crazy upper body work out earlier this morning and lets just say that didn’t work out so great. My arms were jello half way through and it took me 6:40. OYE. So many pushups. I hadn’t done the math prior to doing them and in total I ended up with 110 push ups. There was NO WAY I would make the climb from 1->10 and do 220. So note to self – scale work outs appropriately and don’t set yourself up for failure!!!
My run on the other hand was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The colder weather was amazing and I felt wonderful. Despite the fact that I didn’t get warm until mile 2, I will take crisp air over running around feeling like I’m being suffocated by a hot wet towel any day. BOOM:Every one has a different opinion of fast and slow so some of you may be thinking “poo poo, I can do that in my sleep” and others “holy smokes batman”. Well today I felt like batman. I ran around all the side neighborhoods around work and got to look at all the decorations from Halloween yesterday and was definitely entertained. Because I know you are all dying to know what my mile breakdowns were here you go: 8:26, 8:25, 7:50. Lightening speed for this one, lightening speed. It seems whenever I run with the boy it’s always a day where my legs feel like lead, I have amazing solo runs and then am all jazzed to show off to him that I can keep up with his “slow yog” and then I feel like I’m dying and running using someone elses legs, who doesn’t want to run. Running is a cruel cruel beast my friends. But if you can’t tell I’m in a great mood so obviously the moving and grooving is doing something fancy to me.
The rest of my evening will involve a good bye happy hour to an awesome coworker, cooking up a massive batch of cauliflower rice for a potluck lunch tomorrow at work, and eating some more sweet potato casserole!
Q: Brag about something – tell me something that you did that was awesome today / this week, don’t be shy!
