Well hello there! As I type this up I am baking some Halloween cookies! I got the recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. Monster cookies!
Did you have a good day? My day actually ended at noon today so I was pretty happy about that. I didn’t get my run in this morning so I got right on the treadmill right when I got home. This week mother nature has hit pretty hard and my “visitor” is giving me headaches and making me a grumpy person in the morning. I hope to be back to normal by the end of this week! It’s amazing how that little thing throws your entire week off! (if there are any men reading….sorry!!)
Today I had a 4 mile run on the schedule and couldn’t wait to do it! Like I said, this morning was a no go, but by the time I got home I was ready for it!
Mile One: 9.08
Mile Two: 8.54
Mile Three: 8.45
Mile Four: 8.45
Total time: 35:30
Average Pace: 8.50
I did some stretching when I was finished and then I like the song so much that I was listening to, I got my grove on. :)
I really wanted some oatmeal this morning, so I grabbed a bag and added 1 tbsp of almond butter. I also wanted an egg and some grapes…
For my snack this morning I grabbed a banana and some pumpkin spiced pecans that I had made earlier in the week..
This really hit the spot!
After my run I jumped in the shower and cleaned up and then made myself a smoothie for lunch. I added all the fabulous nutrients:
- 1 cup of 30 Calorie almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup of frozen cherries
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- scoop of protein powder
- and a large handful of spinach
No picture…..sorry!! It was good though. ;)
I am working on dinner right now… ;)
One chicken link, steamed veggies, and one red potato. Yum yum and yum.
So while I was typing all of this up, the cookies are done!!
I think they turned out pretty good. The house smells wonderful! You really must make these cookies! I haven’t tried one yet, but they sure smell good.
Where I live at, we don’t have very many kiddo’s that come by for some candy on Halloween, but every year I think we gain at least one or two more kids. So I ran by the store and grabbed a bag of candy…. Not good that it’s in the house, but whatever is left I am taking to work tomorrow and I am forcing it on the customers. Really, I am.
Happy Halloween guys!!
