Happy Monday! Are you all ready to tackle the week and achieve some goals?! Have a great day 🙂
Sunday started off bright and early for me. Well technically it was dark and early since my body was wide awake at 5:22 am. I have no clue why and while I enjoy waking up early, before 6 am on a weekend is too early for me. I moved from the bed to the couch (I didn’t want to wake Alex) to watch a little tv and see if it would put me back to sleep. Unfortunately it didn’t so I was ready to start the dat. Alex made pancakes and bacon for breakfast which was a nice way to start the day since I didn’t have to cook. Thanks babe 🙂
Of course I forgot two things at the grocery store and Target. Luckily I wanted to run out to Dick’s Sporting Goods to grab some different energy gels for runs. My coach recommended a few different brands so I grabbed three to try over my next few long runs. I ended up buying two gels from Power Bar in the berry blast and strawberry banana flavors. I also grabbed a packet of the Honey Stinger energy chews in the pomegranate passionfruit flavor. When I try them out I will be sure to report back with what worked and what I liked!
When I got home, I put some stuff away and then relaxed for a bit. Alex got home from power washing his parents house right around the time when I started to get hungry. I threw in some leftover roasted potatoes to have for lunch while making a sandwich for Alex. Once we finished eating, I folded the laundry and got my stuff ready for the pool. We finally finished “The Founder”. If you like movies based on true stories, it’s a great one.
Alex was meeting his dad and brother to play 9 holes of golf so I met his mom and sister by the pool. It was such a nice day so I was not complaining about spending it by the pool. I brought “The Obsession” to finish and was so close to doing so but after two dips in the pool I couldn’t. I brought a bag of strawberries and grapes with me to snack on.
When we got home, we decided to re-watch “Burn Notice”. If you’ve never heard of it, the show was on USA Network. It follows Michael Westin who is a burned CIA agent. A burned agent means that his cover has been blown so they can no longer work. There’s some action and the overall storyline comes up in every episode but isn’t the focus which I like.
When I was planning our meals for the week, Alex requested sushi. After spending the afternoon sitting in the sun I was very happy we planned to get takeout so it was a relaxing, cooking free night. I got an order of miso soup and an avocado cucumber roll. Maybe because this is only the second time I’ve had a roll, I was surprised to see that I was full for the entire night! If I’m being honest, I thought I was going to need a snack during “Game of Thrones” to feel full but nope! Also that episode was…yeah. I have some thoughts ha! When the episode ended, I think I was asleep within 60 seconds of getting into bed which signals a good day to me.
Question of the day: What type of fuel do you like during your run or workouts?
