Sleepy already…

It’s Tuesday night, 6:45, and I am already sleepy.  Last night I think that I ended up closing my eyes at midnight and didn’t get a restful sleep once I closed them.  Makes for sleepy eyes!

Once I got to work this morning, I started working on an issue one of our tellers had and it ended up being a busy morning.  Before I knew it, my tummy was talking to me.



I grabbed half an apple and some greek yogurt.



Grilled chicken and greens on one slice of whole wheat bread and one orange.  This orange was SO juicy and sweet!




1/2 cup of cottage cheese and one tbsp of almond butter.  Don’t knock it until you try it!  🙂



Sweet potato rounds with extra virgin olive oil and some crushed red pepper along with one chicken link.




Here is my 3 mile run from this morning….


Mile one:    9.21

Mile two:    9.36

Mile three:    9.17


Total time:    28.22

Average pace:    9.25


You know, I don’t know what I would do without my play-list while I run.  🙂   Another thing that I love about running is that you can just get lost in what you are doing.  I mean you legs literally just do the work and you can almost shut the upper body down.  Sounds crazy I know, but it’s true!  Running allows me to just think about that…….running.  It also allows me to work thru some things that might even be bother me.  I think it’s the endorphins, but it could also be my amazing super powers!  Lol!  I think that I have been watching the Avengers too much……ya think??




I am about to go wash my face and relax for the rest of the night.  🙂


Catch ya later!


I mean seriously….

Holy cow today was CRAZY!!  I mean really crazy busy.   *insert heavy sigh*  🙂   Today seemed to be jammed packed with really difficult thinking problems.  Once I would finish something, it was time for the next problem.  The one good thing?  Today just flew by to me.  So fast that the only pictures that I took today were of breakfast.



I was really excited to try this breakfast!  That is the one of the many great things about Cait sending me a meal plan.  She only sent me a couple of days worth, but it has really got my brain juiced up to come up with some ideas for meals.


1 egg/egg beaters combo with spinach

1 frozen waffle

1/2 of one banana


Lunch today was: one slice of whole wheat bread, 6 slices of turkey slices (thin), lettuce, 6 oz of cherry greek yogurt, and some strawberries.


It was so busy this afternoon that I didn’t even have time for an afternoon snack!



Tonight I am just going to chill out, go to bed early, and get up in the morning and do it all over again. 🙂


You can’t see the tv very well, but that is Captain America!  🙂   Look at my sweat little man…


I almost forgot!!  Remember the September Miles Madness that I was apart of??  There were two teams of compiled runners, we ran each week and then turned in our miles at the end of each week.  Guess what?  Our team won!!  Everyone did such a great job!  Go Team Cait!


Welp, I am pooped.  You guys have a super night!



Crisp cool Wednesday!

Happy Hump day!!  It is Wednesday right??  It’s also the third of the month.  In the banking world, this is a pretty busy day.  Everyone in the entire world gets a paycheck today.  Everyone.


In continuation of my meal plan for Tuesday, here are my eats for the rest of the day:


Morning snack:



My meal plan called for a turkey burger, but I didn’t have any turkey meat, so I improvised with some chicken.  I made some chicken burgers!  I also had some guacamole, lettuce, spinach and I also used 1 slice of whole wheat bread, but cut it in half.




Afternoon snack:

cottage cheese and peaches!



Brown rice, chicken patty, and some steamed veggies with cheese.



It’s a run day!!!  3 miles!!  Aaaand, I get to work on my speed today.  I will start out with a 10 minute warm-up jog, then I will do 5 sets of 1 minute at a fast pace and then follow up with a 2 minute recovery jog.

**Felt amazing on this run!**


Mile One:    9.11

Mile Two:    8.37

Mile Three:    8.57


Time:    26.57

Average Pace:    8.56




Remember when I told you yesterday morning that we were having a festival this weekend??  Timberfest?  Anyway, they are having work nights up at the local court-house this week so I went on up after work.

There is still a lot to do, and to be honest you kind of feel like you are in the way.  🙂  It will look pretty amazing when it’s all finished.  The people who are in charge have been doing it for a long time and pretty much have it down to science.  🙂



Nice feet shot!



Have a great day!!!
