I fell off the exercise wagon while in Puerto Rico â€“ our villaâ€™s location was just not conducive to running outdoors â€“ so I woke up raring to go today! Too bad the weather didnâ€™t want to cooperate. It poured nearly all morning.
I donâ€™t mind running in the rain, but man â€“ I hate starting in the rain. So I waited for a break in the drizzle, put my work aside, and headed out. I did 3.0 wonderful miles. Didnâ€™t time it or wear my Garmin, but I think I was pretty fast.
More than anything, I was just proud of myself for finally getting back out there. Itâ€™s always hard to start back up after a break (I ended up taking eight days off formal exercise); but really, the hardest part is simple getting started. Once you do, itâ€™s not so bad!
And for breakfast, I brought a little bit of Puerto Rico home with meâ€¦
Remember this epic breakfast waffle? I knew right away that I had to recreate the taste at home. Instead of a waffle, I used Udiâ€™s bread and topped it with goat cheese, sliced tomatoes, and a little dab of pesto. Oh yeah.

Peter Hollens (hereâ€™s the funny story of how we â€˜metâ€™) has an AMAZING new video. I know many of you are also fans of Peter, but if you havenâ€™t already seen his rendition of Moves like Jagger â€“ you must!
