It was pretty cold in good ole central Florida at the moment. After taking Abbie out this morning I debated curling back up in bed and falling back to sleep, but I knew I had to get a run in, even a short one.


With the recent cold front moving through I figured it was time to finally break out the winter clothes. So, last night I got the big bin down from the top of my closet and hung up the various long sleeve tees and sweat shirts. It’s always a pain to find a place to put the winter gear in an already crowded closet. Winter in Florida means you may have the option to wear a tank top one day and a sweater the next, so all of the summer clothes need to stay in the closet, which leaves little room for anything new. This morning I pulled out my first long tee of the season for my run.


I know I talk about how I want to live in the snow and how I would love for it to be colder, but after this morning I know I couldn’t handle it. It was just under 50 degrees on my run this morning and I was freezing! I admire all of you northerners who run in the snow or when the temp is below freezing. I’m not sure I would be able to do it. Maybe if I had the proper gear, but even that would be a challenge. Luckily, for me it should be warm again by the end of the week so I only have to deal with this cold of weather sparatically throughout the winter months.


Morning Stats:


Distance: 4.2 miles

Time: 41 mins 35 secs


After a cold run, I wanted something on the warm side for breakfast. I made an Egg Burrito with Grapes & Strawberries on the side.


The burrito consisted of 1 egg + 1 egg white, Reduced Fat Jalepeno Cheese, Spinach, Onion, Garlic, & Salsa all wrapped up in a Flat Out Multigrain Wrap. This was delish and definitely hit the spot!



Right now I am drinking some Hot Peppermint Tea to try to warm myself up. On the bright side I am wearing a really cute pink sweater that I forgot I own. The beauty of pulling out the winter clothes is its like Christmas, you really never know what you’re going to find. J I hope everyone else is staying war where they are!

I was so excited to wear my fall/winter clothes when it first got chilly here, but the excitement has already worn off!

Stay warm today 🙂

Yummy breakfast! I love the snow, but I know my Texas blood couldn’t handle living where it is that cold!

I hear ya, I had to pull out and wear my winter coat for the first time this morning!!!! 🙁 I teared up… was 27 degrees this morning!!!

That’s so true about the clothes though….I love pulling out things that you forgot you own! 🙂 Have a great day!

I’m jealous of your version of “cold” weather…it hasn’t gotten too bad here yet though. A few days dipped below freezing at night, and the weather has possible flurries tomorrow!! Its only OCT!! I do love the clothes though 🙂 You’re burrito looks lovely!

It was 28 this morning on my walk with my dog! It always seems to get really cold right around Halloween and then tends to warm up a bit after that!

Bfast looks delish!

Winter in Rhode Island means you have the option of wearing a puffy coat one day and wool coat the next.

I am in LOVE with your breakfast burrito!
