I was so overwhelmed by the honesty of your responses to yesterday’s post. It is such a great quality to be able to recognize the intangible things that truly matter in our lives and not by the things that bring only momentary happiness. Thank you all for sharing your heartfelt bits of input. I’m so lucky to have such open, honest, and awesome readers
Yesterday, after catching up on some blogging (Does anyone else feel like their Google Reader makes them feel guilty for not keeping up with posts!?) I decided to take my little leggies out for my last Miami run before heading back up to Orlando this weekend.
I threw on my old Team In Training singlet (read about my Team in Training experience here) and went out into the blazing heat.
The dealio with my runs since I really started to cut down on my cardio overdose is that I try to let them be a little less structured. I’ll usually end up covering anywhere from 1.5-4 miles, depending on how tired my legs get or how hot the sun is at the moment. It’s crazy to think that just a few months ago I wouldn’t consider any run a success if it was anywhere less than 3 miles. I was a compulsive cardio junkie and felt like I needed to have an elevated heart rate for hours at a time. Today, my body is just as happy with a laid back 1.5 miles.
This cutie showed up on my doorstep..
And we were on our way to savor our last taste of Chicken Kitchen.
Oh, chop chop—how I shall miss thee.
My chop chop included chicken, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, brown rice, curry sauce, salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar.
Be still my heart.
Will’s chop chop was a little manlier—yellow rice, chicken, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce and hot sauce.
This morning I naturally woke up at 5:30 (.. I know, right..) with a grumbling tummy. I immediately made my way to the kitchen to feed the beast within.
With 2 slices of Applegate turkey bacon. This is the first time I’ve tried Applegate (I’m usually a Wellshire Farms kind of girl) and I was pretty impressed. The only difference between the two that I noticed is that the Applegate slices shrunk into little babies while my Wellshire slices usually keep their massive size during the cooking process.
I have two days until the big move & lots to do! See you all later with the third edition of Things I’m Lovin’ Thursday
Have a great day!
A bit to think about: If you’re a runner, how do you determine how far you’re going to run?
Are you a bacon lovah’?
