Thanks for all the support for my November Goals! Love all readers
Saturday already? This week is going by way too fast. And I got almost nothing done yesterday, except…
First outdoor 5 mile run! So much more fun than a treadmill. And man, setting the treadmill at a 1.0 incline really does help. I feel so much faster outside than in, even with the crazy Hudson River wind.
I’m not sure how completely accurate this app is, because the GPS on my phone is not the greatest. It also has an auto pause feature, so it stops timing and recording when you stop running – basically every time I had to stop and wait at a light. Afterwards, I refueled with a pumpkin pie green smoothie:
I know it was only a 5 mile run, but my appetite is way out of whack. I was not hungry at all after I finished this smoothie. Then the rest of the day I was hungry and craving sugar all day! It probably didn’t help that I spent all day in my room… not doing that again. Today is productive day.
Anyways, here are some of my latest discoveries:
1. My favorite of the Clif seasonal bars
2. Full grocery re-stock for under $50!
Have I mentioned how much I love Trader Joe’s?
3. Fuyu Persimmons
4. Candy Cane Green Tea.
Seriously, if you find this at Trader Joe’s, buy it. I’ve seen the on blogs around, and then spotted it on the Fitnessista’s site the other day, and decided to go for it. Amazing! I’ll be lucky if it lasts me more than a week or two – but it only cost 1.99!
5. Restocking old favorites
My go-to coffee alternative. Just as much caffeine, with other health benefits of tea!
6. Honoring cravings never felt so good.
I wanted egg and cheese on toast. I made egg and cheese on toast, and that was that. In the past I may have eaten something else to convince myself I didn’t want it, end up eating it anyway, then feel guilty for a few days.
7. Homemade trail mix > store bought.
Super simple, and you can make as much or as little as you want!
Do you get hungry after longer runs/workouts?
What’s your latest favorite find?
