Before I say anything else this morning, I must take a moment to thank all of you.
Thank you for the prayers, generous donations and loving words you sent to James’ family yesterday. Every day I am grateful to you guys for reading this blog and when you pour your hearts out and offer your prayers and words of comfort to people you’ve never met, I am left with a heart full of gratitude. Thank you.
Turkey Trot To Come
I hope your Thanksgiving and Hanukkah-Eve is off to a good start this morning! Early this afternoon, Ryan, Sadie and I will pile into Ryan’s car and head to Sarasota where we’ll be spending the holiday with my in-laws.
You better believe the annual Turkey Trot is on the agenda again this year!
Unfortunately the Turkey Trot distance was decreased from a 10K to a 5K (10K is my favorite race distance), but I know it will still be a blast. The Turkey Trot is my favorite race of the year because everyone just runs to have fun. It’s a laid back race and every year we see people run with strollers and dogs but we’ve always left Sadie at home. This year we’ll be bringing her so it will be Sadie’s inaugural Turkey Trot. She’s psyched!
Puppy Sadie always makes me smile. What a cutie pie! I can still remember when she didn’t know how to walk on a leash and our first walks around the block were pretty comical. Sadie would clumsily walk about four feet before she’d sit down in the middle of the sidewalk. Ryan would then pick her up and carry her for another 10 feet before he put her back on the ground and tried to coerce her into walking again. She’d walk another four feet before she’d plop down in the middle of the sidewalk again and look up at us. Practice makes perfect, I guess!
Today’s workout was a good one! I updated the functional training whiteboard at my gym when I was working last night and followed the workout I posted this morning.
I know the directions are kind of hard to read, but they say to complete each exercise for 45 seconds, followed by 15 seconds of rest for two to three total rounds. And yes, my turkey drawings could use some work.
Once Ryan and I arrived home from the gym, I assembled a fast breakfast. We didn’t want to do any grocery shopping this week since we’re going out of town today, so I made the best breakfast I could with the food we had on hand.
Key lime pie Greek yogurt + Dried mulberries + Slivered almonds
Plus the end of a bag of raw cashews and an overly ripe banana!
I’m ready to get this show on the road. See ya from Sarasota!
