Very Productive Wednesday

I love it when I finish the day knowing I got everything accomplished that I needed to. Isn’t that the best feeling?

My sister and I started our errands pretty early this morning. We stopped at Dunkin donuts for some coffee. I forgot my camera, so I had to use hers. Her memory card isn’t compatible with my computer, so I had to take pictures of the camera. Sorry for the HORRIBLE quality!!

I discovered that small lattes (I ordered a nonfat, one pump vanilla) are only 99 cents at DD. I traded my one dollar bill for this amazing little drink. They taste better than Starbucks!! YUMM!

I asked the lady how the pumpkin munchkins tasted, and she generously let me try one for free! Two points for DD!!

Again, sorry for the photo.

After errands, it was time for school. I spent my entire afternoon in the lab working on my concrete design project.

I feel bad for having to drag my sister to the lab for 5 hours, but she was a trooper!  She worked on a playlist for Saturday’s Halloween Party.

My sister is such a ham.

I packed my lunch along, plate and all!

I made it in a rush this morning, so it was slightly boring.

My lunch included:

  • Turkey and Cheese sandwich
  • Apple Slices
  • carrot
  • snap peas

No worries, there were more fruits and veggies eaten not pictured on the plate…

…and around 4:00 pm an Endure Glo Bar. (Made by Angela, Given to me by Caitlin!)

Once I got home it was almost 6:00 pm. I needed to get my run in, but felt a little hungry so I made a banana with Almond butter for a snack.

I managed to get my run in, with the help of my sister!! She dragged my butt to the gym, and I managed to get in 4.0 miles in 35:45on the treadmill. It was fast, but felt easy!

This morning I was unsure about how running in the evening would be, and honestly I thought about skipping it. I’m so glad I did it.

Dinner was delicious!

I made a little bit of something for everyone:

My favorite part was the Salmon!!

Plus, a chocolate chip cookie for dessert…they are so good.

I need to continue this very productive day… I still have some things I need to get done!

Good-night!

Slept Through My Run

I forgot to set my alarm last night to wake up early enough to run. 😦

I have 4.0 miles on my marathon training plan and I slept through it! I have a TON of stuff to get done today (mostly on campus) and I just didn’t have time to run, shower, and be back in time for class.

My breakfast was a bit rushed, but still yummy! I made a bowl of Kashi Heart to heart, with fat free milk, and strawberries:

Looks like I’m going to have to get that run in after class tonight!!

I usually prefer running in the morning, because it gets too hot otherwise. I also have trouble exercising with a full stomach (like after dinner) or when it’s very empty (like before dinner).

I’m usually less motivated when I wait until the end of the day to run, and am always so tempted to skip it. Waking up and getting it out of the way usually works best for me!

Do you prefer to get your exercise in when you wake up, or do you wait until after work/school? What are your reasons?
