Good morning! I have some fun news that I want to get to so I’ll be quick with the usual stuff…
I hit the pool again this morning. Bright and early! I actually got there before the little worker bees had arrived and I got to wait outside in my car until the doors were unlocked. Brrr…
My swim this morning wasn’t all that great. I need to pay more attention to what I eat at night – late night snacking and A TON of sodium really screw me for morning workouts. I almost hate to admit that after dinner I also had a thing of Top Ramen (gasp!), fruit snacks and some chocolate. I don’t know what it is with me but lately I have been craving top ramen and I think it has something to do with the salt. I really need to figure out a better way to tame that craving than to just give in to it. Its embarrassing to admit that…
Thankfully, my breakfast this morning is very nutritious. Walnuts for healthy fats and omega 3s, a Babybel for added calcium and protein, an apple (a day keeps the doctor away), and a Chobani for the ultimate in protein.
I also had a nice warm cup of Gingerbread Tea, followed immediately by a steamy cup of coffee. It is freakin freezin in my office today!
Okay, on to the exciting stuff!
