Run, Work, Read

Yesterday started off bright early during the 4 o’clock hour.  I just love this time of the day.


Justin played golf with his Dad and I spent the day getting caught up on paperwork for a meeting I had yesterday afternoon and picking up around the house.

I also finished up book #3 in the Play by Play series by Jaci Burton. 

Taking a Shot (Play-by-Play Series #3)Changing the Game (Play-by-Play Series #2)The Perfect Play (Play-by-Play Series #1)

This was a fun series to read.  Each book is pretty short, so reading all three back to back was like reading one book.


Sometime after 6am, I laced up my shoes and hit the streets for a run.  I was a little over two miles in before all the crap food I have been eating caught up with me and I started cramping.  I ran home, leashed up the girls and walked it off.


Meal #1: Chobani plain with a honey drizzle, Udi’s gluten free granola and a peach


Meal #2: Pancakes (1/2 cup gluten free oats, enough liquid egg whites to make the batter the consistency I wanted and a cup of Chobani apple cinnamon yogurt) with a side of grapes


Meal #3: Brown rice with peas and carrots and a chicken breast. I added a couple of splashes of tamari.


Meal #4: I kind of fell apart around 3pm (imagine that).  I grabbed for some chips and ate on those while I was reading.  I finally snapped out of that and fixed myself half of a chicken breast and some grapes.

Meal #5: I wasn’t really hungry after the snack fest at 3pm, so I ended up eating popcorn for dinner!

It’s 5:30am and already getting light outside!

I love summer!

Funny Seasonal Ecard: My favorite thing about summer is having a valid excuse for my excessive sweating.


  1. that last pic is hilarious. hope you arent wearing chambray to work out!

  2. 3:00 does me in most days too! :(
    Snack foods are so much more tempting at that time! Who wants to snack on a chicken breast while reading? lol!

  3. I would be too busy staring at the cover of those books to actually open them and read them ;)


  4. I 2nd T's response. Those are some delicious looking book covers!

    1. You guys are funny! If you think the covers are delicious, you should read the book! ;)
