Anyways, I woke up this morning at 7:00 and got crackin' on breakfast!
Then I hit up the gym and did about 15 minutes of weights before jumping on the treadmill. Okay, here's my thoughts. I only made it for 20 minutes today before I cracked and started walking. I have decided that running depends mostly on two things (for me!):
- What I ate beforehand...
What do you guys eat before a run?! I know some people just wait to eat until after, but I need my fuel. I am starting to think that I need simple carbs (cue cereal) before a run. My omelet didn't do much for me today! Yesterday, I ate a few too many handfulls of Kashi Mighty Bites before jumping on the treadmill and ended up running 32 minutes straight...no breaks!
- What music is on my playlist...
"Check Yes Juliet" with it's repetitive "Run, Baby, Run" always keeps me going. What is that one song that keeps you going?! I need more suggestions!!
Lunch time! I did a few errands and fixed up a yummy lunch that was fun to eat and just what I was craving!
- A POM Spritzer
- Black Grapes & an Orange
- Oroweat Whole Wheat & Flax Eng. Muff with All Natural Crunchy PB
And now I want to share with you an email that Penny from Penny's Low Fat Desserts sent me:
We are running a $5 off any cookies or TOPS box through 6/28 and also have a

That's all I've got! I plan on making some of Gina's Ice Cream later on! Stay tuned...
P.S. My Mom and I are making the 40 minute drive downtown tommorrow for my eye doctor appt. and the doc will tell me whether or not she will do surgery on my eyes yet. However, afterwards, we will get to go to the WHOLE FOODS that is 10 minutes away! I have only been to WF twice because we always get so lost and frustrated, but we are going to find it this time (I am determined!). I have been to this WHOLE FOODS only once before and I am super excited! SUGGESTIONS?!
