I RAN A MARATHON!
Not really, of course
But that’s how good I feel about the fact that I got up first thing this morning and went for a 5 mile run!!!!
I know, those of you who exercise first thing everyday are probably majorly rolling your eyes. But gosh it’s hard for me to workout first thing these days. In the next few weeks life is going to be really busy, so morning works make the most sense. I am so used to rolling out of bed for breakfast. Today I rolled out, put on my gear, ate date and hit the cool morning sunshine. It was a glorious run, beautiful weather, able legs, and I’m so glad I did it!!
A smoothie followed!
Tropical Oat Smoothie
- 1/3 cup raw rolled oats
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1/3 cup sliced frozen banana
- 1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Pinch salt
My coconut butter, which I put in my pot of hot water from my tea, melted beautifully in this spring weather and then hardened into the first magic shell of the year!
I call this Buddha bowl [a former OpenSky promotion] my vampire bowl because if you’re not careful, smoothie will come out of the chopstick holes!
This morning I had some Light of Life tea – Mitten Mint Tea – that I got as a sample with our bakery’s tea order.
It was STRONG mint with hints of vanilla and I LOVED it!!! Need to get my hands on some more!
Have a marathon of a day!
