Thankful Thursday

Starting Slow [Although if it was up to me I would have been pushing myself a lot harder, my 'coach' suggested that instead of switching 100% from my gym routines to running outside that I take it slow (adding 5 minutes of jogging outside to my current program). I would much rather be running 100% outside, but also know that if I want to be able to finish my half marathon in 45 days that I am going to need to be injury free. I am glad to have someone giving their suggestions (and knowing what they are talking about).]

Apples [If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, I wonder what two or three will do?! Ryan and I have been on an apple kick lately. He eats his with peanut butter for a snack in the evenings and I will crunch on them throughout the day at work. The crisp, fresh flavor is just lovely. (We have been eating mostly Fuji's.)]

Sugar [Not for me, but for the fairies. They have been awfully hungry lately and I feel like I am filling up the feeder every day or two. We make our own nectar out of sugar and water (My grandma says that the red die can hurt their reproduction, so we opt out of it). I don't know if Chubbs is on vacation, so the other hummers can come eat freely, or if they are just super hungry lately, but man am I glad we are stocked with sugar to keep them around.]
