Back to the daily grind. Ugh. Ma’, do I haaaave to go to work today? I think I’m sick. (Insert fake cough here!) The weekend went by waaaaay too fast. Let’s recap, shall we?
First, I wanted to run Saturday and couldn’t due to an injury. Instead of running, I sat on my booty and wrote a post about plain vs black coffee – and by the way, I made a mistake. Ooopsies! I meant to say “regular” – not “plain.” Nevertheless, I am still dumbfounded by the fact that regular coffee is not the same as black. Now… moving on…
Kev, our company, and I had lake fun, beer fun, and dinner fun before indulging in a little more beer fun. I was the designated driver for the weekend, so my tastebuds didn’t get tooooo much beer fun. However, I did try a lovely new brew with my bbq bacon burger (heck yea I got it with fries) on Saturday evening. It was a French Broad 13 Rebels pale ale. It paired flawlessly with the burger.
My hip felt better Sunday, so I finally got to try out my new armband. I guess tunes make you run faster because I did pretty well – despite running through a hilly nearby neighborhood on a hot day. Yay! I did 4.4 miles in 37:22, and the first 4 miles of it were completed in 33:47. That made me feel pretty good. I didn’t really want to get up and work out today, but I still got my sweat on. I did a heavy day of chest + shoulders with 30 minutes on the elliptical. What a great way to start the day!
Now it’s time for breakfast (my second-favorite time of day). No more parfaits here; I’m bringin’ back the oats! Notice the little black things in my uncooked oats. Those are chia seeds, which I tried for the first time just a week or two ago.
Chia, Cha-cha-cha, Chia seeds are the same little buggers sold as “pets” about 5-10 years ago. So why am I eating these? Well FitSugar helps to explain how these little buggars pack a strong nutritional punch. Fiber, calcium, protein, and omega-3s, oh my! Click here for the nutritional profile.
