Good food, two runs, and a those little extra things squeezed in for a all-around good day!
6:27 a.m. I wake up. My alarm was set for 6:30 a.m. I feel so much more refreshed if I wake up on my own rather than to an alarm.
6:50 a.m. Run 6 miles. I felt particularly good after a day off yesterday. Sunday I wrapped up a 70 mile week, so Monday’s day off was much needed.
7:40 a.m. Return from running.
8:00 a.m. Shower and get ready for the day.
8:30 a.m. Breakfast #2 with Cullen: steel cut oats with banana + raspberries + scoop of Justin’s vanilla almond butter + iced coffee. It has been too long since I’ve made steel cut oats; I forgot how much I love them. I made a batch in the Crockpot yesterday and reheated them this morning. And that Justin’s almond butter is amazing!
9:10 a.m. Leave for Cullen’s 15 month check-up at the pediatrician. He is a very healthy boy, who is ‘very curious’ the pediatrician commented. (He was not wanting to sit on my lap for this picture.)
2:15 p.m. Pre-run snack: small slice of Garlicky Kale and Bacon Pizza from last night’s dinner + strawberries
3:30 p.m. Run 6 miles with Cullen in the stroller. I always like my runs during the daylight. Cullen was distracted by the babbling stream by us.
4:45 p.m. A Picky bar while at the playground after our run.
5:30 p.m. This is when the hunger really hit. I thought the Picky bar would be enough to get me to dinner, but I was wrong. Another snacking plate: homemade bread, freeze-dried sugar snap peas (these are addicting too!), string cheese, and a few rice crackers. I am so random in my eating.
6:25 p.m. 10 minutes of stretching while waiting for Craig to come home. Dinner was prepped, so I had a few extra minutes. This is the only way I can fit in these ‘little extras’ into my days.
6:45 p.m. Dinner: two hard shell tacos using an Alton Brown recipe for the homemade taco seasoning + roasted broccoli.
9:05 p.m. 10 minutes of abs, push-ups, and more stretching and foam rolling. Once again, trying to be more diligent about those little extras.
