Good morning! Hope the day is treating you well.
Wait a minute… it’s Thursday? Yowza.
The days and weeks are just flying right by this year. You know how I know? I have a half marathon to run in less than seven weeks. I guess that is why you could say I have been bitten by the running bug again, but we will talk more about that next week.
Yesterday I took Roadie out for a quick two miles around the neighborhood in my new Reebok Z Goddess sneakers. I continue to take my ZQuicks on every trip I have been on, and got excited when I received a new fun and bright version to try out. Thanks, Reebok!
Quickly following our short loop outside, I continued my workout with two rounds of a familiar bodyweight circuit indoors.
It got me nice and sweaty in no time, hence earning the right to wear this Lorna Jane tank. (<- sorry, this particular one appears to be discontinued.)
You should all know where I stand on this subject by now. I am a firm believer in eating whatever your body is craving, even if your goal is to lose or maintain weight, IF you do so in moderation and pair it with a decent amount of exercise.
While I do enjoy working out at home, I am starting to miss frequenting a gym and taking part in weekly group exercise classes. Who knows, maybe I will break down and get a temporary membership to my old gym until I figure out what is next. There is a Fitness Pilates class going on tonight with my favorite instructor… just sayin’.
This morning started with an 8 a.m. breakfast I am still picking at.
Speaking of working hard for treats, I wasn’t too hungry after the splurge on pizza and cookies for dinner last night. Oh, and don’t forget the skittles.
In my defense, there was also a (tiny) salad and Scott and I both ate at a church function. I’m excited to share more about what we are doing coming up in the fall!
For now, I’ll leave you with a close up of what I should be highlighting.
I know… I’m dramatic. But it made you want to go find and eat some fruit, right? Even maybe one of you? Shoot. Mission accomplished.
All right, it’s time to get the day going. I’ll be back later today with the next post of notes in my series of IDEA sessions. Stay tuned!
Questions of the Morning
