Sadie and I were peanut butter buddies this morning. As I enjoyed a peanut butter finger, Sadie enjoyed a peanut butter spoon (or two).
I had to spoil Sadie a little bit because I’m going to miss her so much this weekend!
Ryan is taking Sadie up to the Appalachian mountains to go hiking with his dad and his friend Terry, while I head to Jacksonville to spend the weekend with my family. Being away from Ryan makes me sad, and when I don’t have Sadie with me either it’s like a double blow.
At least I have a fantastic and fun family to hang with! 😀
If you didn’t already guess, peanut butter made a starring debut in my breakfast this morning.
I topped a honey wheat Arnold sandwich thin with the creamy goodness and microwaved frozen banana slices.
The banana was hot and gooey and tasted extra sweet.
Elvis would be proud of this breakfast. 😉
My workout began with an early morning BodyPump class. We had a substitute instructor who decided to do an old throw-back release, which was a neat surprise. I love challenging my muscles in new ways and this release definitely did that.
The throw-back release was easier on the lunges and squat tracks, but my biceps, triceps and chest we killin’ me! I actually increased my weight by five pounds during the chest track. I figured I should give it a go since the release we’ve been working on has a really challenging chest track.
Post ‘Pump, I headed home and leashed Sadie up for an easy, breezy 20 minute run around the lake by our apartment. She seemed to enjoy it and I relished my last moments with my lil’ girl for the weekend. 🙂
A big spoonful of peanut butter was Sadie’s post-run reward.
Question of the Day
Do you treat yourself to something especially yummy after a tough workout?
I usually eat similar things regardless of the difficulty of my workout. However, after running in a race I always eat a BIG breakfast with dippy eggs, toast, fruit and whatever else I’m cravin’ at the time (like whipped cream, straight out of the can).
