2010 – Day One

I love fresh starts so I woke up with a smile on my face this morning knowing today was the start to a new year :)

Even though it was icy out I really wanted to start the year with a run. I bundled up and set out for a 4 mile run/slip and slide/walk/tip-toe. It was even more slippery than I thought in some places and my heart skipped a few beats every time I almost fell.

I came back home and woke up Ben and he joined me on a cool down walk (this doesn’t make sense because I was already cold as all heck, but whatever). I also stole a handful of cereal while I was waiting for him :)

The first meal of 2010 was a big bowl of oats with banana, soy milk, chia seeds, Truvia and PB. This really filled me up, but I got hungry an hour late for some reason?IMG_3694

I am low on fruit, but Costco is closed today (learned that the hard way). So, we hit up a few stores that were open and I got a pair of running capris I may wear to the Marathon.

Problem: I can’t do a “dress rehearsal” of what I will wear race day on a run because I haven’t worn warm weather running gear for months and may have added a few pounds to the mix (thanks for nothing tamales!). Hmmmm. I’m in the process of figuring this one out, but I will most likely just have to hope and pray whatever I wear is okay.

I ate this Amy’s meal for lunch because I was only half heartedly paying attention when someone was talking about how black eyed peas are lucky to eat on New Year’s Day. At least I ate some, right?IMG_3699

I had some dried mango for dessert – this stuff is Natures real Candy :)IMG_3700

And a small bowl of cereal a bit later…exciting times, I know.IMG_3702

Well, Day One of 2010 is almost over and I don’t feel like I’ve done anything life changing yet. I better get on that!

I did spot this cute post card at the book store, but I have much more to accomplish today… IMG_3697

See you in a bit :)

    Way to start the new year off with a healthy breakfast!

    I, too, was surprised how many businesses were closed today.

    Oooo, are you sure you want to wear capris for Disney? It will probably be cold at the start (bring a long-sleeve you can ditch), but once the Florida sun comes out it warms up quickly, especially when you’re running. Of course it all depends on what you’re used to and comfortable wearing, but if you like shorts you may want to reconsider.

    What about doing a longish treadmill run to see how it all fits/runs? I dont have a lot of race experience but I know that my biggest issue is making sure pants/shorts stay in place and are comfy once I get sweaty.

    good luck!!
