Hi friends! This sure has been a long week for me. How about you? School is keeping me absurdly busy for the foreseeable future, thanks to a couple group projects, multiple assignments and 3 exams next week. Bleh.
While I’ve been running around like a maniac this week, I’ve been keeping my priorities straight:
getting 7-8 hours of sleep every night
exercising every day!
This morning started with a 4 mile run which was slower than my Monday morning run . We did a lot of leg work in power yoga last night so my legs were tired – and so was I. Days like this, I ignore my performance and pat myself on the back just for making the effort to do something good for my mind and body.
Mile 1: 9:20
Mile 2: 9:37
Mile 4: 9:18
Breakfast was a bowl of my new favorite cereal, Barbara’s Shredded Oats and an apple for the road.
Lunch and snack for the day: leftover pizza from a fun dinner with the girls last night, another apple and a banana.
Last night the girls and I met at Pazzo , an Italian restaurant in Chapel Hill, to celebrate our friend Anne ’s birthday!
Anne and I split a huge pizza with fresh mushrooms, tomato, pepperoni and spinach.
I also ordered a bowl of their butternut squash soup. Yet another reason why I love Fall.
Yum. I’ve been inspired to make my own butternut squash soup soon, too!
The dinner was fantastic. A relaxing night with the ladies was just what I needed after a long day!
