I was so anxious to share my apple walnut baked oatmeal recipe with you this morning that I breezed right over my workout!
After breakfast, I kicked off the day with a 20-minute session on the elliptical at 7 a.m.
I followed it up with a leg workout that once again incorporated single leg deadlifts. My sister actually did them at the gym yesterday and I got this text from her this morning…
They’re no joke, I’m tellin’ ya!
A beautiful view of the marina greeted me on my way out of the gym parking lot.
St. Pete is so darn pretty.
World’s Best Coffee?
On my way home from the gym, I hit up The Fresh Market with only one thing in mind: Nab some peanut buttercup coffee.
A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from blog reader Brittany informing me about the new flavor of coffee available at The Fresh Market for a limited time. It sounded right up my alley and I made a mental note to stop in the store to get some when I was in St. Pete and close to a Fresh Market. After smelling the grounds, I am so pumped to try it out. I’ll report back soon.
Lunch today was leftovers thanks to my sister! She had a decent portion of her salad leftover from dinner last night and I made it my lunch today. (I ate most of it standing up in the kitchen, hence the sparse looking picture.)
Though the lettuce was rather wilted, I still loved the combination of flavors, especially from the spiced pecans and fried onion strips.
I added some Pretzel Crisps and a piece of Ezekiel toast with apple butter to my meal to make it a bit more substantial.
After lunch, I was able to work for a couple of hours before printing off some writing samples and my resume for today’s meeting in Tampa. Heading that way now!
Blogger on the Run
Yesterday something pretty cool happened!
I was featured on Women’s Running Magazine’s blog as their Blogger on the Run.
I answered a few questions about my foray into running (it’s hard, I’m not very good, but I love the challenge) and wanted to let you guys know about it because their blog is featuring a giveaway related to running every single day through June 19. I figured that would interest you lovely runners out there. Check it out! You might win some shoes or snazzy running apparel!
Also, let me know if you’re training for any races at the moment. I’m starting to get that half marathon itch again and think that an awesome race could be just the ticket to motivate me into training… although training in the middle of the summer in Florida probably isn’t the smartest thing in the world. I’ve done it in the past for the Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon though and it wasn’t too bad.
