Busy day getting ready to go on retreat this weekend. My sister and I are leaving Friday morning for a retreat in Palm Springs with my church's women's ministry. I am looking forward to it so much! Of course the challenge will be to stay on plan when the food choices are out of my control. But that's part of real life so I will do the best I can and call it good.
I started the day with a 4.1 mile interval run. I'm working on increasing the run intervals during these weekday runs.
There was a moment when I was running that was so amazing! It probably won't sound as amazing in the retelling but it was awesome. I started out before the sun was up and I was just running along in the dark, putting one foot in front of the other, listening to my music and the voice commands from my JogLog app, when I realized, all at once, that it was light outside and I was awake and feeling alive and vibrant. I think I may have even giggled a little bit! Honestly, the fact that I run and that I enjoy it is just delightful to me! I remember a time, not so long ago when my Facebook status often said something like "Have I mentioned how much I hate running?" I don't hate it anymore.
Okay, my menu:
Coffee with SF Creamer
Microwave omelet made with Eggbeaters, onion, peppers, spinach, & FF cheese.
Wraps made with one Alternative Pita split in half and filled with Laughing Cow Cheese, 98% FF Ham slices, tomato, spinach, and mustard.
Dinner: (comfort food)
Turkey Burger Patty cooked in 98% FF mushroom soup,
Garlic mashed potatoes,
Greek yogurt mixed with chocolate Weight Watchers smoothie mix and sliced bananas. Yes, I eat some variation of this every day :)
