A Morning Stroll

in All Posts

I grabbed Kath for a morning stroll.


I really wanted to move my legs before we get into the car to drive 7 hours back to Florida!  But I wasn’t in the mood to RUN, so Kath agreed to walk with me.


We did 45 minutes at a fast clip around her neighborhood.  At least I got some blood flow to my glams!


Pre-workout smoothie:


Kath and I split the following mix:


  • Big handful kale
  • 1.5 frozen bananas
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 scoop Vega Vanilla Chai
  • 1 tbsp Scharffen Berger chocolate powder
  • Granola to top it off


And afterwards, some of that delicious cinnamon bread with buttah:




Time to hit the road, Jack!

    That bread looks amazing! GH in Charlotte is seriously the BEST! I have one about 15 minutes from me in Greenville, SC but it doesn’t compare to Charlotte..

    I love morning walks…I just wrote about my favorite one that I hope to be doing later this week at my parents summer home. It definitely seems like you and K have had a great time together!

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople June 6, 2010, 3:33 pm

    Sometimes a nice brisk walk is what is best. The smoothie looks fantastic!

    I love walking 😀 I can’t run, so usually I substitute it in for walking. I usually walk at a bit between 4 and 3.5 mph (so… 3.75 mph? ;))

    Good luck with your drive! 7 hours… yikes! 🙁


  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) June 6, 2010, 11:02 pm

    That bread looks delish!!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) June 7, 2010, 1:54 pm

    A good walk is a nice change when you just aren’t up for a run. Hunni and I do that with the pups in the summer.

    Glad you got in a great chance to move your legs before 7 hours.
