If we were having coffee today, I'd tell you that I've decided to forego my goal of running a 55k at the beginning of April. I probably wouldn't want to go into too many details about it. It's kinda fresh. But let's just say that other goals are taking a priority and with my knee acting up, I don't want to push it too hard and risk more serious injury.
I'd tell you that I spent some time this morning writing out a workout plan for March. My plan is to really focus on Core and other strength and/or endurance workouts, so that I can get stronger for that possible Grand Canyon hike. I'll only be running 2-3 days a week, with some hiking or biking thrown in. I'm also going to start a 30 Days of Yoga for Beginners playlist on YouTube. I was very specific with exact videos/workouts I want to do, so I won't need to waste any time figuring out what to do each day. It's a pretty solid plan with working out or running in the mornings and yoga in the evenings. I'm hoping that Jeff will do the yoga with me (or at least some stretching while I do the yoga) in the evenings. I don't normally do 2 workouts in one day, but I'm tired of being so lazy in the evenings.
If we were having coffee today, I'd remind you that I'm so excited to be an aunt again. The last time I became an aunt was in 2002! My two youngest brothers each welcomed a baby boy at the end of February. I would definitely show you pictures that my brothers and their fiancées have shared on Facebook.
If we were having coffee today, I'd tell you that I got to have lunch with a former co-worker yesterday! It was so much fun, plus I got to hold her little 6-month old. She's adorable! I'd also tell you that we got to talking and totally spaced snapping any pictures. I hadn't seen her in probably 9 months, so hopefully it won't be quite as long before I see her again.
If we were having coffee today, I'd tell you that I've decided I really like butternut squash. We got some in a recent Bountiful Basket. I peeled it, cubed it, and then roasted it. So delish! I ate it as a side, in a smoothie, and in a salad. I'm blown away by how much I like it. I really don't remember liking it this much. LOL.
What exactly is a #smoothiebowl? . . I really have no idea, but from what they look like in pics and posts, I'm guessing it's just a smoothie in a bowl with toppings. . . I had some leftover #smoothie from yesterday, so I attempted my first one - with sliced bananas, shredded coconut, and slivered almonds as toppings. Did I get it right? . . Smoothie was: 1 cup almond milk, 1 kiwi, 1/2 banana, 1/2 mango, 1/2 c roasted butternut squash, 1/2 c oats, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Time to get going...
Oh, one last thing! I'd tell you that Jeff and I are heading out for a bike ride this afternoon. We haven't gotten in the saddle for MONTHS! I'm excited to get out there. Plus, it's gorgeous outside right now, and I don't want to stay cooped up inside all day long!!
Have you ever set out with a BHAG - only to re-evaluate and change your goal in the middle?
If we were having coffee, what would you want to tell me?
Be sure to head over to Got 2 Run 4 Me or Confessions of a Mother Runner and catch up with everyone else!
Until next month...
