All or nothing. 

I’m an all or nothing type of person. I’m specifically like this when it comes to food and exercise. For example, if I’m on a good exercise regimine and start eating super healthy, I tend to not eat enough for my activity and go a little over board with being “healthy”.  On the other hand, on days where I don’t exercise and eat poorly, I tend to just keep eating because “the day is shot anyway…”  

Today was a prime example…

Breakfast:  Think Thin Lean Protein Bar and coffee

Lunch:  chicken, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, and green peppers. 

  
Snack:  dark chocolate covered goji and acai berries (small package)

Dinner:  black bean burger with sour cream and salsa and sweet potato fries

PAUSE. I should have stopped there and went to bed. BUT, since I only took a short yoga class today (hip/glute is on the mend), why not just dive head first into dessert and never stop. 

Dessert:  chocolate cake with ice cream, lots of skinny popcorn, and more ice cream. Not pictured…thank goodness. 

Now I’m sitting here feeling very full and very gross.  The only thing I can do is move on and start over tomorrow.  Here’s to a healthier tomorrow!                                                                 ——————————————————-

Now that I’ve shared way too much (and ate too much), here are pictures of the best part of my day. 

Annabelle’s first baby ballerina class!  She was not a happy dancer and didn’t want to leave mommy’s side. She finally opened up at the end of class, so maybe next week will be better!

   
   

After dance class, Annabelle “helped” me foam roll. ☺️

  
I hope you made better food choices than I did tonight!  

What did you have for dinner?  Dessert?

Sunday Funday!

It’s been a super long time since I’ve posted. To my loyal readers (Rob, Mom, Dad, and Aunt Janice), I am sorry. 😉  In case you are new here, my name is Linda and I love my family, running, and ice cream. I’m currently training for a September marathon and hope to qualify for Boston. Please stick around!                                   ———————————————–

This weekend was a good one filled with lots my favorite things…

Running!  16 miles on Saturday morning. Jeanette and I averaged a 9 minute pace and it was awesome. 

Napping!  Saturday afternoon nap with my favorite little girl. 

   
 

Ice cream!  This was my first time trying this brand. I planned on just having a few bites. A few bites = the whole pint. 

  
Snacks!  I’ve been on a serious popcorn kick lately.  Ya know, I need the salty to balance out the sweet. 

  
Family fun day!  I bought Chris super good tickets to the Oriole’s game for Father’s Day. We had such a good time.

Now that I’ve watched Big Brother (anybody else love this show), ate my weight in ice cream, and stayed up way too late, I NEED to go to bed. I woke up with a weird hip/butt/IT band issue going on and really really really hope it starts feeling better tomorrow. Please cross your fingers and toes for me. 

Good night!
