You know you’re a true runner when you look forward to your alarm clock going off at 5:45am on a Saturday morning. For me Saturday mornings equal longer runs and that makes me one happy girl!
I rose before the sun then headed to one of my favorite running spots, Baldwin Park, which I had not been to since my 20 miler before my marathon! It’s a beautiful running path that is always full of fellow early runners. I happily ran 7 miles in 1:05:36 and immediately basked in my running high glow. 🙂
When I returned home I had a lovely Breakfast Cookie waiting for me.
Last night I combined
- 1/2 cup Oats
- 1 spoonful Naturally Nutty’s Chocolate Toffee Butter Peanut Butter
- 2 spoonfuls of Unsweetened Applesauce
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- Crushed Walnuts
I flattened the mix on a plate and this morning topped with the cookie with Plain Oikos, Strawberries, Blueberries and a Cherry.
It’s been a while since I had a breakfast cookie. I always forget how good they are. 🙂
Rock it Girls!
As it was the first sunny day we just had to take advantage of it!
I happily settled into my extra large towel and soaked up the rays with the Cullens.
To save a little $$ we all decided to pack our lunch for a little picnic on the beach.
I had packed a Almond Butter, Carrots, & Craisin Wrap.
Sounds odd, but amazingly delish! The craisins were my favorite part of the wrap!
I also enjoyed a refreshing bowl of Mango & Red Plum that was the perfect addition in the hot blazing sun.
For the next couple of hours we walked down the beach, played in the water and kept reapplying sunscreen. I <3 the beach!
I started feeling snacky so I pulled out the bag of Sour Cream & Onion Pop Chips I had received in the mail yesterday.
I am always fascinated by how the chips are not fried or baked, but ‘popped.’
They sort of remind me of Rice Chips.
Sour Cream & Onion has always been my favorite flavor of potato chips and I have to say they got it right with these chips. They are very light and crispy, but very flavorful. I say if you are craving a chip these are the way to go. 🙂
A trip to the beach always SCREAMS ice cream to me. Luckily Megan and Kelly were feeling the same vibes. When we had enough sun we headed to Tutti Fruitti Ice Cream Cafe for a cool treat.
I ordered a single scoop of Vanilla Non-Fat Frozen Yogurt in a fun sprinkle cone.
Blah. The FroYo was very icy and not that great. I should have just got a real ice cream flavor. Oh well, it was still cool and refreshing.
I was on an important Healthy Living Summit conference call during Ice Cream time. 🙂
Despite the two coats of sun screen, it looks like the bag of my legs got a little burnt. 🙁 I see a cold shower in my future!
