It’s ok to take your shoes off!

on September 26, 2012

Hello!  So it’s been an interesting week thus far.  It’s the last week to reach our goals for the quarter at work so we have been zipping around.

This morning started at 5:15, well actually it started at 4:00.  With the cooler temps, having the AC on isn’t all the necessary, but last night it was kind of muggy and at 4:00 I woke up hot.  I can’t sleep when it’s hot!  I did manage to go back to sleep, but not for very long.

I got up and got my day started with a cup of joe.  Once I was fully awake, I hit the treadmill for 3 miles.  I felt a little tired this morning on my run, so I will be taking a rest day tomorrow.  Trying to listen to my body!


I had to eat breakfast on the way to work….

  • 1 frozen banana
  • frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • protein powder
  • almond milk/coconut milk



I have also been spending my lunches here:


It’s been so nice just being out there and having some quiet time.  The weather has been perfect for it too!  I even let my feet enjoy the moment!


A couple of days ago I read this post over at Carrots and Cake and really like it.  One of the things that really stuck out to me is resting.  I am really bad about not getting enough sleep.  Especially lately.  So, this is one thing that I am going to continue to put first for a while.  Last night as I was watching tv I just closed my eyes and that was all she wrote.  This was at 9:45.  I woke up about an hour later and turned the tv off and went back to sleep.

If I want to continue getting up early, having great runs and feeling really great then more sleep it is.


I hope you guys have a great night!

  1. I love your little quiet time spot! It looks incredibly relaxing. And major props for getting up early to run–somehow I just can’t make myself do that!
