solar powered

What a lovely day we had today – the sun was shining and I could actually FEEL it’s warmth for a change. In fact, I think it hit 50 degrees this afternoon. I’m trying not to think about the *potential* snow storm we’re supposed to get on Friday (it better be a bad April Fool’s joke) and just enjoy the fact that today and tomorrow are exactly what Spring days should be like.

I went out for my easy 3 mile run today and enjoyed every minute of it. I really do think I am solar powered. There is just something about the bright sunshine that makes running so much easier!Sun

I easily could have gone longer, but I was wearing my brand new kicks and they were starting to give me a bit of a blister, so I called it a day. I was supposed to do a bit of strength training today too, but I had a charity bowling event and didn’t have time – unless you count throwing 4 strikes in a row as strength training. Just kidding….I could never do that. But I did break 100 in both of my games, which is probably a personal best.

For some reason I am completely exhausted tonight, but I’m determined to stay up and watch the season finale of my favorite show – Top Chef! Its Richard vs. Michael in the epic battle for the top spot…even though none of my favorites are left, I’m pulling for a Blais victory!

Before I hit the sack, I just have to share with you one of today’s snacks:


I purchased a sample pack of these raw flatbreads and crackers from Twin Cakes Bakery a week ago and have been eating them nonstop ever since! They come in delicious flavors like Collard Sesame (above), Cinnamon Date, and Pumpkin Seed Kale and are the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. I’ve been trying to introduce more raw foods into my diet and these little snacks make it super easy! The Vitamin Water Zero wasn’t bad either!

Looking forward to more sunshine tomorrow!
