Stand Success

There's something about being home on break that just makes me so lazy. With the exception of a quick trip to the car dealership this morning (A/C's broken, not cool), I had trouble motivating myself to do anything for the majority of the day. I enjoyed a breakfast cookie this morning while catching up on blogs:



  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 T cashew butter
  • 1/2 banana (mashed)
  • splash of milk
  • small handful of walnuts

After that I moved from the breakfast bar to the couch and....read more blogs. For like, 2 hours. Is that bad?


Eventually, I got up and did a 30 minute Step Aerobic work-out followed by 30 minutes on the stationary bike and then I gobbled up some lunch.




Salad and leftover chicken. Not very exciting, but it worked.



I spent the rest of my afternoon playing around on the computer and napping (seriously, could I get any more lazy?!) and then decided enough was enough. It was sunny outside, 50 degrees, and there was no reason why I shouldn't be heading out the door to enjoy the nice weather (especially when it was snowing yesterday!) Originally, I planned on going on a nice walk around the neighborhood but then I decided that I really should just suck it up and go for a run. It's been weeks since I've had a good run outside, and with a 10K coming up in less than a month, I need to start building up my endurance again!


I ended up running 3.0 miles in 32:37. Not very impressive for me, considering the fact that I ran my 5K last month in the same time.




Regardless of my time, I still got out there and hit the pavement and I did run the whole three miles without stopping to walk once, which is always an achievement :)




I got home just in time for dinner: Semi-homemade Hawaiian pizza on organic pizza crust!




SO. FREAKIN. GOOD.




I could eat this every day and be happy.



OH! You might be wondering about the title of this post. Remember a couple months ago when I said that I was going to master the headstand? Well...




I could chill like that all day.  :)
