WOW….what a crazy two days….I’ve gotta say y’all— I seriously consider the blog my baby and like any mother, when something is not right I tend to freak out!
Anyways, without getting into too much crazy technological language, let’s just say the blog is back. Right now I am on Adam’s personal server but I have to switch again next week so I don’t be a mean popular kid again and actually kick his real clients off. Oops. So, we might be down for a short time next week (maybe a day?) but I will warn you ahead of time and after that it is calm seas again.
I’m just going to do a recap from yesterday morning on, since that is when the train wreck occurred. Sound good? Okay here we go (in my best cheerleading voice)!
Yesterday morning for breakfast I had a lovely bowl of Oikos with Nature’s Path granola and Rainier cherries!
I’ve never tried cherries in my cereal before but being out of bananas AND blueberries, I had to make ends meet. This was delicious!
Then after breakfast I hit up my favorite yoga class EVER—90 minute Yoga Groove! Oh man, it was faaaaabulous. Jen blasted the tunes and we just flowed in a very hot room…got all nice, sweaty and “passionate” (as she referred to the class). Nothing better than totally rocking out to awesome jams and doing chatarunga after chatarunga. I was raspberry jelly by the end. 🙂
However, I came home to find disaster had hit the blog and then for the rest of yesterday was just sitting at my “desk” on the phone with BlueHost and trying to keep my cool. For lunch I had a goat cheese and hummus sandwich and a wrinkled old peach
Just like my day was going though, it fell apart. 🙁
So, naturally, I consoled myself with my favorite thing ever: candy raisins sent from Grandma in Wisconsin!
And then when I was about to throw my laptop out the window, I broke for froyo with Anne P!
I got a small original tart with strawberries and chocolate chips. Anne was laughing at me because I paid in all nickels and pennies found at the bottom of my car. That’s how I roll!
Dinner was whole wheat angel hair with Target brand organic (Archer Farms–heck yes!) vodka sauce and a quorn cutlet:
It was a perfect “night before a long run” dinner. Made even better when Ryan came home with cupcakes to console my horrible mood!!
I’m not going to lie. I totally DEVOURED the chocolate red wine cupcake with honey marscapone fig icing GAHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhh (food coma)
Even though I was in a sour mood, I still went to bed with a very VERY happy tummy. This morning I was supposed to wake up at 5:45 to run but, well, I didn’t end up going to bed until midnight so that wasn’t happening. I woke up at 6:45 instead, ate a quick slice of ww bread with almond butter, and hit the road for 5.5 miles!!!
It was one word. HOT. Even at 7 am, the road and air was still so steamy and humid you could slice it with a butter knife. My original plan was to run 3 miles outside then race back upstairs and finish the rest on the treadmill to save myself from heat exhaustion but……….I persevered. I did take 1 minute walk breaks after every mile and drank a ridiculous amount of water (drained the camel bak) but I’m happy to enough that I finished STRONG in just under 58 minutes. No shin pain! I did however have a SPLITTING headache for the rest of the day from the heat. I need to work on that. Any suggestions?!
When I got home I made a HUGE Green Monster!
I used 1 peach, 1 banana, 1 scoop Amazing Meal, 1 cup soymilk, ice, 1 spoonful almond butter and a TON of fresh spinach. SO good! I seriously think GMs are the absolute perfect post-run food!
I made like a bunny into the shower to quickly get ready for Erin’s jewelry/brunch party at 10 am. I’ve never been to a jewelry party before but apparently its the same idea as a tupperware party. I didn’t buy anything but the food was awesome (and of course I was starving)!!!
Erin made homemade egg and hash brown casserole and french toast casserole!!!!!! The egg and hash brown casserole was flippin’ amazing. There was a layer of hash browns, cheese and eggs…….SO good.
There was a bloody mary bar and mimosas, but since I had just run my heart out in the Florida heat I decided to stick with chugging massive amounts of water.
After the party I promptly came home, put on my pajamas and was a total bum on the couch for the rest of the day while my bloggy was healed. I took some headache medicine and laid with an ice pack on my head for awhile…then I got up and made a snack with the rest of the Oikos + granola (sadly there was probably only less than 1/3 cup of yogurt left…I doused it in granola)
When Adam called me to tell me the blog was healed and alive I felt SO much better!! yay blog! This experience made me realize how much of my life really IS the blog! I mean, I have been taking pictures of my food and blogging EVERY.SINGLE.DAY for almost two years straight. When that suddenly got taken away I felt like a part of me was missing!
I’m about to stop being such a bum, get dressed, and meet friends for dinner at The Lodge. What do you think of the menu?! It sure looks interesting. They roll with the whole “60’s diner” theme and it looks pretty fun. I have no earthly idea what I’m going to order…!
Thanks for sticking by me through it all!!!! The blog loves you! 🙂
