I’m jumping on Kate’s great post idea to discuss happy things! By the way, Kate is an awesome person I’ve met through blogging – Not only are we both in the nutrition field, but we realized we’re only a short drive from one another so make it a point to have regular chat sessions!
Anyway, we’re jumping on the happy train over here and focusing on the positives!
Top 3 things I ate:
This veggie-heavy sweet potato avocado flatbread pizza. AH-MAZING is the only way to describe it. What are you waiting for?!
Lindsay’s Strawberries ‘N Cream donuts, except I made them into muffins. This glaze is outstanding on its own – believe me, I ate it by the spoonful.
My MIL’s outstanding strawberry balsamic grilled cheese. She makes this for me every time we visit, and I swooon. I’m gonna try to recreate it – stay tuned!
Top 3 Workouts:
First speed workout in a month! I did 2.5 mile warm up, 3×800 at 7:10 pace followed by 3 x 800 at 8:30 recovery pace, and 2.5 mile cooldown. I’m feeling ready for the Cooper River Bridge Run tomorrow in Charleston!
I ran this 10k about 5 years ago and finished in 44:00. So my goal this weekend is to beat that, but I’m not going to put too much pressure on myself. I haven’t been training regularly since I’ve had some hip issues so we’ll see how it goes! Also, there’s upwards of 40,000 runners racing so it’ll be a bit of a traffic jam! Here’s my race photo from 2011, when I was young and carefree!
I tried a free class at HSM Core, thanks to the Yelp Fitness club! Picture 40 minutes of planks, squats, and cable bands – it’s three days later and I’m still sore. The instructor is so motivating but doesn’t let you skimp. Amazing workout!
My run on the Oak Island beach!
Happy Hour on the porch at Fork, followed by homemade cheesy stuffed portobello mushrooms with my bestie! No, both of these drinks are not mine 🙂
Another social night out for a friend’s birthday, sitting out on the patio!
And of course, catching up with grandma over the phone is a high! She’s so precious.
