First let’s start with some great news – I had an awesome work out tonight! Remember yesterday when I mentioned I had to do something I was preparing myself mentally for?! So, here it is – I was supposed to jog for 20 minutes straight. I know, I know – you’re thinking “really, that’s it?”. The long and short of it, I did it and I didn’t stop once! Yep, I’m bad ass (in my own little world). Again, I was a turtle but nonetheless I did it.
I ran through an awesome neighborhood on the water which definitely helped. The homes are large and very reminiscent of my time in Savannah. It’s the best of both worlds, I feel like I’m in the true south yet I’m where I love to be in Texas. If only I had $1,500,000 to pay for one of the homes.
Here’s a pic I took on a previous walk………how gorgeous is this home!
Not too long ago, friends would laugh at me since I couldn’t even touch my toes when stretching my hamstrings. Considering I’m only 5′ tall, I’m close to the ground! Since all this training, I’ve been actually stretching some. OK, not as much as I should but I’m doing something! Here’s proof and I promise I’m not cheating (straddle stretch)…..
After stretching and a little ab work, I made a protein smoothie. I cheat a little by using Naked brand Green Machine to get a bunch of nutritional items, some protein powder, and frozen berries. A truly yummy delight!
On a complete side note, on my way home after my work out I passed this older couple walking. They had a stroller with their DOG in it!! What in the world is the point of walking a dog if the dog isn’t gonna walk??!!??
Oh, before I leave………a question to you all………what is your favorite pre-workout snack or supplement to energize yourself? I enjoy working out in the evening but sometimes my energy levels are lacking. I’d love to hear what get’s your motor running (get your mind out of the gutter!).
