Hello and THANK GOODNESS IT’S FRIDAY!
I woke up in a pissy mood. Not for any reason really, just hormones – or lack of hormones, I guess. Meh. But luckily it was not anything that a good run could not cure. I once read a quote that said:
"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clear-headedness that follow a long run." –Monte Davis
Cue this morning’s 9-miler.
I am happy to report that it did the trick. It was also pretty awesome to run in new kicks and shorts.
I came home and cooled off my insides with a HUGE and fabulous green monster:
- handful of organic baby spinach
- handful of organic kale leaves (no stems!)
- 1 scoop of chocolate Sunwarrior protein powder
- 1 scoop of chocolate Amazing Grass Superfood
- 1 cup of unsweetened chocolate almond milk
- 1 cup of water
- 1/2 frozen banana
YUM! Do you see a trend with the chocolate?! Um yeah. I am getting my fix. Remember, I do not eat sweets!
Another thing that brightened my day was reading Gina’s post about her Pilot hubby coming home from his most recent 6-month deployment. It was beautiful and totally brought tears to my eyes. Watch the video…it will make your day, I promise. I am so thankful for our military and their families for the sacrifices they make for our country. They are all heroes.
That is all.
Love you guys.
