Setting The Example

Setting the example of a balanced and healthy lifestyle

Stormy Night and Day

Posted by fsumeg1884 on December 26, 2012

Well we had an interesting night……..

From the random fireworks that a neighbor decided to set off to the horrible storm that moved through Atlanta last night, Lexie was not a happy camper. I remember at one point waking up and her butt was literally by my head. It’s never dull with her. After the sounds from last night I prepared to be greeted this morning with lots of debris fallen on the ground during our walk but there was little. Just wet, saturated everywhere. I had to wipe the mud off of Lexie’s paws before I let her back into the house.

Breakfast consisted of this new find


I normally just get the regular kind but this time I was curious to see what the wheat and gluten-free tasted like. All in all not to different and I would try them again but more than likely not because of the price increase. Sorry, girl on a budget! I topped them with some warmed chopped apples, cinnamon, and syrup. Oh and sorry for no picture, about 3/4 of the way into my breakfast I realized that I forgot to take one. I keep forgetting that I started this blog. Oh well, next time then.

Yesterday I was so looking forward to a run outside with lexie but when I awoke and heard of 20 and possibly 30 mph winds with light rain I made an executive decision to stay inside and head to the gym. Thank goodness for the new iPad and being able to read the latest edition of Shape Magazine. I ended up doing 5.8 miles with some speedwork added in. A few weeks ago I recently started adding the 1% incline while on the treadmill and I could almost immediately tell a difference in how my shins felt after a treadmill run.


During my workout I suddenly had a craving for spicy hot eggs (probably just my body telling me I needed salt). Headed home and quickly whipped this brunch up and devoured it in about 5 miles. I ended up not toasting my bread and made an egg sandwich creation once I began eating. Delicious and it hit the spot.

Lexie and I braved the weather for some errand at lunch time. On the agenda was an emissions test which is always a reminder that I have a birthday coming up. Still cannot believe I am going to be 29 in a few weeks! We headed to the bank and grocery store before heading home and I immediately threw a load of laundry in to the washing machine. Is it just me or does anyone else feel like they are always doing laundry?

Snacked on these items throughout the afternoon while I did busy work around the house. Now I am off to find something to make for dinner while continuing on my mission of finding a clinical site for my senior practicuum next semester. Hope everyone is having safe travels home today!
