Pizza, POM and Peeps


Thanks to Project Energize I was up earlier today than a normal work day!  Angie and Lynn invited a few of us to join them for their new weekly ritual of a Saturday morning run.  Last night I wouldn’t commit because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but before bed I reminded myself how energized I felt after my two runs this week and knew I had to do it!

Plans changed a little this morning, with the gals deciding to take their run indoors…but they were going to my gym so that worked out perfectly for me.  In fact, I got there early and had already almost finished my run when they arrived…so I doubled my workout by adding a jaunt on the elliptical and some strength training.  WooT!

  • Treadmill:  3 minute warm-up, 3 x 7:1, 2 minute cooldown = 2 miles (3.22 km), 200 cals, 29 minutes
  • Elliptical:  cross-country, varying resistance, 10 minutes, 1.2 miles (1.9 km), 100 cals
  • Strength: 30 squats, 30 lunges (each leg), 30 crunches, 30 reverse crunches, 2 x 1 minute plank

Toast with The Bee’s Knees and banana before I went…


Coffee with the girls after…Grande Egg Nog Bold Coffee Misto

Lynn commented that she loved this as a way to start her weekend…and I have to agree! 

Upon returning home and showering I was definitely starving.  Leftover veggie pizza to the rescue!!

With a POM, pineapple juice and club soda spritzer…reeeefreshing!


This afternoon I’m off to check out a Christmas Craft Fair with my friend Sarah and then dinner out.  Sarah shares my enjoyment of ethnic food so I’m sure whatever we decide will be awesome.
