Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola

Happy Tuesday!

Today was one of those days that just FLEW by.

Brent and I stayed up late watching Breaking Bad and lets just say, that kind of show makes me have crazy nightmares. Probably the same reason I can’t watch the walking dead.

Anyway, I slept in a little and headed to the gym a little later then usual today. I wore my Ogden marathon tee in honor of the Boston bombing yesterday.


I started walking, and all the TV’s at the gym had the news on that were showing pictures of the aftermath of the whole thing, and I just broke down a little. My heart breaks for the family that lost the little boy. The whole thing is just sad. I posted this on my facebook page this morning and  it rings true.


Whoever planted those bombs better watch their backs. Us, runners are resilient.

My walk turned into a run/walk. I covered 5 miles before calling it good.


I love that skills has a camera where I can watch T&B play the whole time.


I love watching those two play together. They really never leave each others sides.

I have taken two whole weeks off of strenuous exercise or 2 to 3 a dayers. I’m starting to feel really good. Today was the first day in a LONG time that my run didn’t feel forced. REST IS GOOD!

I’m craving a good GPP workout and the workout today didn’t help. I actually love this sweat in the eyeballs, almost yak feeling workout.

After the gym I came home to play in the kitchen.
