20140217_101453I was supposed to be on the road by now, but the snow storm put my trip on hold. Imagine that! I’ll have to wait until tomorrow morning to leave. I want to leave in the morning because I don’t like driving at night. I think of the worse. What if something happened to my car and I had to sit on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere in the dark, or what if I took the wrong turn into a scary town? I watch too many crime shows that freak me out. When I’m by myself, I play it safe and stick to daytime travel.

I’m all ready for my trip, my bags are packed, and I have everything ready to load into the car. Hopefully the weather clears up by morning! 20140217_101502Before getting ready for my trip yesterday morning, I had a quick fix for breakfast. 

I love simple breakfasts. A breakfast that involves zero clean up is a win for me! Sometimes I like to make big breakfast that involves some work, but yesterday wasn’t one of those days !20140217_101547I filled a bowl with 1 cup of strawberry yogurt, 1 cup of blueberries, 1/2 cup sliced strawberries topped with 3/4 cup of cereal. The cereal is just Kroger’s brand strawberry and flakes. 20140217_101551This breakfast only keeps me full for a couple hours, so I typically have a protein shake or a couple hard boiled eggs with it or an hour later. After getting my laundry, cleaning, packing, and errands finished, I went to the gym to fit in a run. I’m kind of glad I’m not traveling today because now I can go to spin class tonight!

Yesterday’s Run:

*Mile 1, 10:10 *Mile  2, 9:55 *Mile 3, 9: 44 *Mile 4, 9:33 *Mile 5, walked. 14 min on an incline.

I only dealt with a couple of knee aches, but I think the extra strength training and spin classes are helping.  I know my time’s aren’t the best, but it’s all about finishing.

Post Run Snack: 1 Cookies & Cream Quest bar with a banana vanilla protein shake.
