Good morning and happy Monday! 😎
My To Do list for the week is insane, so I’m off to a running start this morning. The pug, however, woke up, ate breakfast, and went back to sleep on the couch. Oh, how I wish I had his life.
If you didn’t read CNC over the weekend, here are some posts to catch you up!

I can’t believe the marathon is just 13 days away!! 😯 I’m so ready to run it, but, at the same time, not ready! Excited, but nervous, ya know?
I’m still in taper mode, so here’s this week’s schedule from our TNT coach:
- Monday: Easy 30 minute run
- Tuesday: Easy 30 minute cardio
- Wednesday: Easy 25 minute run
- Thursday: Easy 20 minute cardio
- Friday: Off
- Saturday: 8 miles
After breakfast, I’m off to run an easy 3 miles around the neighborhood. It’s actually fairly warm and sunny outside this morning, so I might as well take advantage of the nice weather. I’m sure there will be plenty of treadmill running this winter.
Mmm”¦ Butterscotch French Toast! Seriously, who doesn’t love French toast? Or butterscotch for that matter?
However, I realize that most people don’t love the calories, fat, and sugar in such an indulgent breakfast, but a little butterscotch extract goes a long way!
Butterscotch French Toast
Makes 2 servings
- 4 slices of whole-grain bread
- 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tsp butterscotch extract
- Whisk ingredients (minus the bread) together in a large mixing bowl.
- Heat pan (or griddle) over medium heat; coat with non-stick cooking spray.
- Coat slices of bread with the mixture and place in the pan/griddle.
- Cook each piece for 2-3 minutes and then flip. Cook on the other side for about 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
- Remove from pan and serve with your favorite toppings. (I spread almond butter on top of mine.)
On the side, I had half of a pink grapefruit.
And a glass of iced coffee with soy milk.
Question of the Day
What are your fitness goals for the year?
Mine are to run a marathon, go to Body Pump at least once a week, and run 4 half marathons (one per season). That last goal is new! 😀
