It’s been a busy week. And as of yesterday it’s officially summer! This morning was a tough one to wake up. I had running club at 7:15 so I set multiple alarms at 6:20, 6:25, 6:30, 6:45 and finally 7:00 to make sure I left on time. After grabbing a Larabar to eat in the car, I noticed it had already been opened (I’m assuming by me at some earlier time?) and was completely petrified. Gah, just what I needed.
Now, I will say this over and over until I’m blue in the face or until it becomes untrue, but I love running with other people. The time just flies by and it definitely keeps you moving when you would otherwise quit (like this morning…I was quite fatigued).
Post-run I met up with my dad for breakfast at Swami’s, and ordered what has become my usual: acai bowl, side of potatoes and iced coffee. I had this last Saturday, and Sunday and again today. What can I say? I live for planning and routine.
After my dad left I hit up the mall to try and find some new training shoes since mine got dirty after last week’s hike. So, I guess I just have to get new ones. Such a burden 😉 except really it is when you want to buy something and you can’t find it anywhere. #firstworldproblems
Tell me where I can find these shoes size 8!
Later I met up with my mom and brother and we lived the life of luxury, aka, sitting poolside, sipping Oreo smoothies. I just love anything cookies and cream. But I don’t like plain Oreos. I like them crushed up and sprinkled on fro-yo, or big hunks of cookie in cookies and cream ice cream. I guess the same goes with all other kinds of candy too. I just like it in not normal form. Total digression.
Then we went to Man of Steel which was good because, you know, sometimes you just like watching movies because you just like looking at people. Like
sexy Superman. Finally we went to my long lost love, Burger Lounge, where I was able to reconnect with my favorite veggie salad topped with quinoa patty. Perfection.
Today was very productive, semi-eventful, and of course, summery. Waking up early and running really helps with being productive all day because 1. you don’t have it lingering over you, and 2. you get your butt out of bed.
