Get up and go. That is the key to weekend workouts for me.
If I putter around the house for a few hours or tell myself I’ll workout in the afternoon, there’s a 98 percent chance I won’t workout at all that day.
Last night I went to bed planning to wake up and take Sadie for a run. I awoke with sun streaming in the windows and checked my phone, relieved to see that the temperatures were still in the mid-70s.
Since the temperatures climb quickly in Orlando, I took advantage of the temperate weather and Sadie and I completed our typical five-mile loop.
Some MK & A jams blasted on my iPod, making this run a good one.
We arrived home slightly before 8:30 a.m., ready for breakfast!
Ryan walked in the door from the gym shortly after and we were both feelin’ smoothies for breakfast.
In the mix:
- 1 c. milk
- 1.5 frozen bananas
- 1 heaping scoop vanilla protein powder
- Dash butter and nut extract
- 1 large handful fresh spinach
- Chia seeds (for garnish)
It hit the spot!
Now Ryan is begging me to go on a quick one-mile walk with Sadie to talk about our weekend plans. It’s supposed to rain later today, so I guess front-loading all of Sadie’s exercise for the day might not be a bad thing!
