Good morning bloggy boos! How are you?
Thank you for all of your favorite juicing combinations!! And for the congratulations on my first new baby of the week She has become a he, and been affectionally named Darren. Lisa, you know me too well:)
Also, I am so glad you guys are gaga for Bressert Kale Chips! There will be more variations this weekend, just you wait:)
Sorry about the absence over the last couple of days:( Being a senior can do that to ya. It’s a bit of senioritis (which the Padre understands, and responded to with, “It’s like running a marathon, sometimes you gotta take a break for a week” <—Love him) and a bit of the fact that I am hearing from a couple of my schools this weekend and the rest by April 1st.
I should be more nervous than I am, most likely, but I think it is good that I’m relaxed about this. What’s the point in worrying when it’s out of my hands, you know?
Yesterday I got a little present from the UPS guy.
Well, more like a present from myself, to myself. Awe, Katelyn, you shouldn’t have;)
We should all feel loved (especially by ourselves!) sometimes. Okay all the time, cause honeybunches you are a pile of lovebunch. To get serious for a moment, just remember that your family, friends, and bloggy boos love you times a million. If you are struggling with loving yourself, don’t hesitate to shoot me an e-mail That is all for the seriousness. Back to business.
I bought myself a Garmin.
Why? a. I cannot run outside without knowing how fast/far I am going, or I just get disoriented and feel super slow (way diff than a treadmill) and b. This will make my half marathon training (and future marathon training) a lot more effective. The best part is you can plan your workouts on the computer, and upload them to your watch. It beeps at every interval/pace/etc., which rocks my socks. Love you new workout buddy:)
I purchased this on Amazon last week for $127. Not a joke. So if you bought one for full price, you might as well be kicking yourself in the pants right now.
I am in love. This watch will be my fifth appendage for the rest of my life.
Any name suggestions? I am thinking this one should be Brendan after Brendan Brazier, so I can channel his inner beast.
^^Just TRY and tell me that picture doesn’ t make your brain hurt a little.
Obviously as soon as my new toy came, I had to hit the pavement. The Padre asked if I wanted to go running with him, so obvs I jumped right on that. What’s a better way to try out my new toy than to get my butt kicked by my marathoner Dad? That’s right, nothing.
So, I got my game face on..
And kicked some asphalt.
p.s. Doesn’t it look like I photoshopped myself into that picture? I’m floating basically.
Roughly five and a half miles, including approx two miles of walking because my knee began to hurt. No injuries around here people, we are all about prevention! I am not going to get an ouchy knee right when I get my brand new toy, oh no I am running in the ice and snow no matter what (by the way Mother Nature I am not happy with you, why did you take away our sunshine?!).
When I got home, I had a quick smoothie and then went to my doctor’s checkup, running clothes, Garmin, and all. I’m pretty sure they appreciated it:)
Then I came home and had some goodies. I am pretty sure my stomach is bottomless. So, I had breakfast for dinner (aka Brinner). You crave what you crave, people!
A Cookie Dough Bowl con bananas, carrots on the side. Addiction.
And some Kelp Noodles! I recently found these at Weggies, and basically peed my pants. Even our health food superstore in town doesn’t have these. I am impressed once again:) (bee tee dubs we could still use a Whole Foods or TJ’s around here!)
These are so. good. Crunchy, mild flavor (takes on the flavor of whatever you put them in), and so refreshing. A+!
I enjoyed them with some marinara and nooch, as well as on my salads. I am not going to show you pictures because it looks fugly, but isn’t fugly food the most delicious?:)
That is all for today chickadees! See you tomorrow:)
Do you have a Garmin? Any tips/name suggestions?
We should make a Garmin club and all go running togeths. Running party at my place, mmk?!
Seasoned runners: any tips for running in general and training?
Fill me in, love doves!
Favorite new food finds?
Kelp noodles:) I am always up for a new product! (as long as I can pronounce the ingredients, and there are as few as poss. No HFCS for this girl.)
