I apologize for how boring I’ve been lately. It’s okay. You can say it; I won’t be offended. My mind has been preoccupied with other things and I’ve been shutting my computer off around six every night to get out of the internet bubble. Sounds silly, but it’s how I vacation my brain every now and then.

I wanted to do a little catching up post to stay connected and I promise to make a comeback with some better posts.

I was blessed to wake up to the warm weather Sunday morning. I’m blessed to wake up every morning, but Sunday felt so special. I wasted no time. I leashed up the dog, ate a quest bar, grabbed my iPod, and put my running gear on. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a good run in, which is really bad since I plan on running a half soon. I need to get the motivation to try harder. The weather has been dragging me down.

After my run, I had a quick bite to eat. I had two cups of grapes, strawberries, pecans, almonds, and vanilla yogurt.

After showering and getting ready for the day, I sat down for a cup of tea. My throat gets really dry after I run. I tend to breathe out of my mouth more than I should, so hot tea helps.

A couple hours later, after helping at the hospital, I made a quick lunch. I was standing around in the kitchen eating the soup I made the other day out of the container before I decided what I was actually going to have.

I ended up making a wrap with mozzarella, avocado, and turkey. On the side, I had carrots and ranch.

Later in the afternoon, I used my espresso maker and made a little treat. Grumps had his eye on it the entire time.

My drink had 2 shots of espresso, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 packet stevia, topped with Whole Food’s 365 light whipped cream, dark chocolate chips, and a pecan!

Later in the night, the three of us went out for a long walk to enjoy the weather. Grumples is way too spoiled 🙂

I ended the night with a giant salad with all of the weeks leftovers. It sounds kind of gross, but tastes awesome. The salad had soup (no broth or that would get soggy), croutons, tortilla strips, turkey, avocado, cranberries, and mixed nuts.

Yesterday morning, the weather was still nice. I went for a sunrise walk with the dog. The sky is always so pretty by the lake.

I spent the whole day out and about running some errands.

Last night, I made a quick dinner. I cooked up sweet garlic chicken breast and roasted vegetables!
