Happy Earth Day!
Today was such a beautiful day I decided to celebrate Earth Day outside! It got up to the low 70′s here, so I just had to spend the day in this beautiful weather. This morning I woke up and took the big one on a 4 mile run.
The run went pretty well even though it didn’t feel like it during. We ran the first mile along the beach, and boy was that rough! I have never ran along the beach before and just after that first mile my legs were on fire. Since I knew we needed to get in 4 miles for my training plan, I decided to take the rest of the run to the street. 3 miles later we were back home with huge smiles on both of our faces.
I went light on lunch today with a toasted peanut butter sandwich for a little bit of protein, and a yummy broccoli salad with tomatoes, carrots, avocado and balsamic dressing. Filled me up good!
After lunch I took my Earth Day love to the beach! I took a couple of magazines and hit the sand like it was my job. There were a ton of people out today even with it being a Monday. I guess everyone had the same plan as I did for today. Even the seagulls wanted to hang out!
I found these yummy snacks at Whole Foods the last time I was there, and fell in love immediately. Jolly Llama Squeezups are dairy free, gluten-free, fat-free, and all of that with NO GMOs! I will for sure be getting some more the next time I go to Whole Foods.
