Thank you so much for all the motivational mantras in Wednesdayâ€™s morning post. I was having a really tough run this afternoon, and one mantra in particular really made me pull through.
It was something along the lines of, â€œCommitment is what you do when no one else is looking.â€ I wanted to quit my run, but it was probably my last workout before Sundayâ€™s race. I thought, â€œIâ€™m committed to this, and even though I donâ€™t have a running buddy with me, Iâ€™m going to finish what I started.â€
I did a 5K (3.1 miles) in about 32 minutes. And honestly, it felt great at the end. 🙂 Sometimes you just gotta push yourself a little!
Pre-run snack of Cheerios + brown rice crispies + rice milk:
Post-run fuel was a Cherry Chocolate Bomb. Bestâ€¦ smoothieâ€¦ ever. Try it!
My smoothie contained:
- 1 banana
- 1 cup rice milk
- 15 frozen cherries
- Nesquik (mmm!)
- Couple slices of frozen peaches
Since the smoothie was pretty much part one of dinner (it was super filling!), I had an almond butter sandwich with honey for part two.
I bought Maranatha AB at Costco in bulk, and I totally regret it. It does not even come close to comparing to Justinâ€™s Maple Syrup Almond butter, no matter how I dress it up.
Justinâ€™s rules. Worth the $9.99 insanity.
Who rules your nut buttah world? PS â€“ Does anyone else remember the direction of the â€˜greater thanâ€™ or â€˜less thanâ€™ symbol by pretending itâ€™s an alligator mouth that eats the bigger amount first?
