Yay! I finally had a really painless (mentally AND physically) run. The 5.0 miles just flew by! I think it’s because I was thinking about my upcoming bachelorette party — I am getting really excited!
It helps so much on a run if you can focus on something besides the actual run — just try to space out and daydream!
I am about to check my heart rate monitor to give you my statistics, but the screen has gone black?!?! Ahh! Well, here’s an approximation of my statistics (I kind of remember them):
- Duration: 50 minutes (5.0 miles)
- Average Heart Rate: 155 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 185 bpm
- Calories Burned: 430
My HRM better not be dead! 🙁
After my run, I made a fun breakfast-for-dinner…. an omelette!
My protein-packed omelette contained:
- 2 whole eggs, 1 egg white
- 3 slices of deli turkey meat, chopped
- 1 serving Cabot Private Stock extra sharp cheddar
Delish! So gooey and yummy. The protein + fat combo will keep me full all night, for sure!
With some steamed green beans….
And I had a glass of OJ on the side…
Other Snacks of the Day
My hunger was INTENSE today. I don’t know if my breakfast or lunch was lighter than normal or what (I don’t think so), but my tummy was growling!
I started off with pumpkin spice granola + yogurt around 1 PM.
And honey bunches of oats… which I think is basically like eating air. I’m not a fan.
Around 4 PM, I decided I need to eat a MAJOR snack or I would chew my arm off during my run. I had a PB sammie.
It’s Starting to Feel a Lot like Christmas!
I "decorated" for the holidays tonight! This year, that includes hanging up our door knocker….
Putting Santa on top of the speaker….
And hanging up Future Husband and my stockings (Maggie and James get stockings, too!).
How do you decorate for the holidays? Do you go ALL OUT? I love getting a tree, but with the wedding on January 3, it’s just not a wise move!
oh god, i’m glad i’m not the only one with NUTSO hunger today…holy cow! I dont know what was differnt, but I came super close to throwing a fit:) hunger can turn me into a cranky mess when it becomes too intense! hahaha i think i’m settled, FINALLY!
