It's A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood...

Good morning!

Clyde and I have been having a rare week day morning together.  I have an event to attend on the north side of Charlotte tonight and rather than work a full day, run alllllllllll the way home (I'm on the south side) to let him out, then go alllllllllllllll the way back up, I decided taking the morning off made the most sense.  That way I can go to work, go straight to my event, and then go home and Clyde will be fine for that amount of time. 

First up this morning was a Green Monster.

Pretty much made it the traditional way:
Banana
Ice
Skim Milk
Spinach
Chia Seeds
Raw Oatmeal

But I also added about a teaspoon of Macadamia Nut Butter to mix things up ;)


Clyde and I watched The Today Show and got to see all the hosts in costume.  I don't know that Meredith really pulled off Lady Gaga...


Her attempt at singing scared me a lot.

Then I did my SECOND cross train work-out this week (go me!).  I ran 5.5 miles with Michelle last night, so I figured it would be good to get in some strength training today.  We actually talked a bunch about how much cross training can help with running while we were doing our run last night, so I was extra inspired to get it done today!



Thank you Jillian Michaels, and I didn't PHONE IT IN.  Also, I did think about all the things I wanted. (if you've done any of her videos, you know what I'm talking about...)

After my workout, I took Clyde for a walk and it is SO GORGEOUS out today!



It really feels like FALL!!


I love red leaves!!


Back at the ranch there was some of this...





I pretty much always sprinkle my coffee with cinnamon.  Cinnamon makes everything better.  Well maybe not pickles, but you know what I mean.

Alright, I guess I better get ready for work :(

Think I can remove this "puppy donut" from my lap??
