I always get a little nervous when I look at my training calendar before my high mileage weeks. I know my body can do it, but my mind isn’t always sure. If this week goes as planned, I will run in the 80’s. Prayers are welcomed and encouraged!
It feels so good to be back home and back in my routine. I’ve travelled a lot in the past few weeks.
One of my favorite daily healthy habits is drinking warm lemon water when I wake up and before bed. I’ve been doing it for years and I believe in it’s benefits.
Here’s a great list of 20 Reasons You Should Be Drinking Lemon Water Every Morning.
My favorite discovery from my trip were these bars. They sell them at Starbucks and this one only has 2 ingredients….1 apple and 1 mango. That’s It!
My sweet girls got their hair did while I was gone. This is their hurry up and take the picture so we can have a treat face!
I did a nice recovery pace run this a.m.
and took an OrangeTheory Fitness class for some cross-training. My Cocogo bottle glows!
The Bosu Ball has been making me unacceptably sore in OT, so I bought my own. I do a nightly core routine before bed, but obviously it needs some tweeking. Time to add the BOSU!
I made a much needed afternoon coffee with my Nespresso. Just look at that pretty soy froth!!!
Sometimes you just need a plate full of veggies for dinner…eat the rainbow! Fresh corn off the cob, garlic mushrooms, coconut oil roasted sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts. I’ll be posting the brussels sprouts recipe later this week. It’s SO GOOD!!!
You know you use a lot of coconut oil when you start buying this size!
And, of course I ended the night with some more lemon water.
Broken toe update (words I never thought I’d type): I keep having to remind myself that I doesn’t heal in 2 weeks. It is no longer painful, but it’s still sore. The bruising has moved from the toe to the top of my foot. Hopefully that’s a sign of healing!
