Waking up and doing a quick ten minute workout is sometimes more effective than coffee. This morning, before breakfast, before taking my dog for a quick stroll, I did a quick ten minute workout followed by a lukewarm glass of lemon water. I wrote down a quick routine on a piece of paper and then went at it! I felt so good afterwords. I am going to attempt the run again today with the hills and see if I can do better. I’m only running four miles today because my legs are sore from yesterday (which I’ll blog the workout next) and I don’t want to overwork myself.
After taking my dog for a quick mile morning walk, I made a little breakfast. I don’t like to fill up too much before a run and so I made 1 serving of whole grain oatmeal with sliced peaches, almond milk, and a side of sliced strawberries. I needed some sugar for some energy and fruit is the healthiest way to get it! Of course, I’m trying not to eat AS MUCH fruit as I used too and only eating the recommended amount.
After this post, I’m heading out for my run and then coming in to post more and finish up the rest of my work. I don’t have much on the schedule today so it should go by pretty quick. I’m thinking about baking or cooking something fun and healthy today! Do you have any suggestions. Link me some ideas in the comments!
