Last night I went to bed late!
It could have been from this:
Yes, that is some coffee. I only had a half of a mug of half decaf/regular, too. It usually relaxes me but not last night!
Or it could have been that I wound up running 6 miles at nine last night!
Either way, I ended up catching up on blogs, watching Conan and Jimmy Fallon.
I did end up crossing more than half off of my list from yesterday, too! I still need to go over bills and take back library books. I feel very accomplished! =)
Breakfast was a lovely spread of eggs with asparagus and spinach, along with a half of a bagel.
I did quite of cleaning once J was taking his nap. I think I have finally figured out his sleep schedule! I wish kiddos came with instruction manuals – I swear it looks easy but really it’s rocket science!
Lunch was Amy’s soup with celery, crackers and hummus.
I had a lunch date with J!
Then we were off to run my errands and grocery shop.We didn’t arrive back home until 6 which is a lot later than I was hoping for. I knew I wanted to head to the gym so I ate fairly light.
I picked at some left over pasta that had green beans, zucchini, broccoli and spinach tossed with quinoa pasta shells, some pesto and tomato pasta sauce.
Marc was home at about 7:45 and I quickly headed to the gym. I bought new running pants yesterday from Target and I was excited to try them out. My go-to pair were getting too big and they kept falling down when I was running – I hate worrying about your clothes when you are running!
The verdict? Awesome! They have a high waste and are pretty snug so they stayed up great! I ran another 6 miles last night, too. I am really starting to fall in love with running. Now I just have to wait until it gets a tad warmer so I can start running outside. But running on a treadmill doesn’t bother me one bit. I hate hearing about runners getting hit – it really scares me! Plus, I just turn on the TV that is on the treadmill and zone out. But I know to increase my leg strength I am going to have to start running outdoors.
I know it is over 6 months away but I am getting very excited for my Half Marathon! I want to be in the best shape and feel confident going into it! But I must admit that after running 6 miles, which is my longest yet, 13 doesn’t see too bad. :crossing my fingers:
Well I am dropping off J with my mom today for a sleep over. Marc and I are going to the Nutcracker tonight and having a nice dinner out! I am very excited! I love the ballet! =)
Have a great day all!

Just found your blog! I love your eating philosophy and your little guy is adorable!Great job on your runs! I don't mind the treadmill, either.Happy New Year!
Just found your blog! I find it inspiring because I used to run 5-7 miles everyday up until after I got married over 3 years ago. Grad school got in the way, but now that I'm done (and put on 20 lbs), I'm ready to get back on the saddle. Love your blog! I have a food blog, and I can't wait to try some of your recipes :o) Happy New Year!
What half are you doing?*check out my Boomi Bar giveaway on Monicaonthego.com*
Have a fun date night!!!!!!! 🙂 The nutcracker will be so great! Good job on the running too!!!!!
6 miles is great, good for you! You'll finish that half no problem!
I love your blog—cant wait to get some recipes from you!
I didn't know you were training for a 1/2 marathon, that's so exciting! I wish I could fall in love with running.. Have a wonderful time at the Nutcracker!
Yay for your half marathon!! I'm excited for you too! I wouldn't want to run outside in the dark, but if you can get out there when it is light out, and it isn't raining, you should go! I've been running in -1 to 20 degree temps. As long as you are dressed for it, you'll be fine! Happy Running!
Everytime I work out later, I can never fall asleep either – I got those endorphins flowin'! 🙂
