Good morning! Happy Thursday!

Yesterday morning, I was in the mood for a two-ingredient pancake, but I wanted something a little different for breakfast, so I whipped up some Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter to spread on top.

Mmm”¦ the Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter was so good. It tasted more like pumpkin and cinnamon than it did peanut butter, but it was nice and thick, so it was a satisfying addition to my breakfast.


Speaking of satisfying additions, I made my two-ingredient pancake with two eggs instead of one, and I like how it turned out a lot better than the original recipe. It’s bigger and fluffier. Plus, two eggs are more satisfying than one! I also drank a glass of iced Dandy Blend with half & half.



After breakfast, I did a little work and then drove to Pond Meadow Park to meet my friend Kerrie for a run.

It was 45 degrees outside, so I broke out my (ridiculously colorful) winter running gear. Brrrrrr!

I was really cold when I first started running, but not even 5 minutes later, I was warm and totally fine. I always hate those first few minutes though! Man, I hope I’m ready for winter running. I don’t have a gym membership anymore, so no treadmills for me this year. I guess I can’t be a wuss about running outside!

Kerrie and I ran a speedy two miles together around the park. We made plans to get together at Starbucks afterward, so we walked back to our respective cars and planned to meet there.

As soon as I got into my car, I blasted the heat and then entered my miles into DailyMile on my iPhone (Electric Miles app). I record every single mile I run in DailyMile as a way to keep me motivated. I’m also a big fan of tweeting about my workouts, posting photos on Instagram, and creating various “fitspiration” boards on Pinterest. Doing these things keep me accountable, motivated, and organized. I also love following and interacting with other health and fitness enthusiasts on these channels because they constantly inspire me and give me great ideas that help make me a healthier person.


At Starbucks, while I worked with Kerrie, I sipped on a decaf caramel brulee Americano with a splash of milk. It was my first red cup of the year, and it was, oh, so delicious!

Plank Challenge

Yesterday’s Plank Challenge workout totally slipped my mind. I didn’t even think about it until late in the day yesterday. Sorry, guys! I ended up doing a workout that I made up a few weeks ago for Health: 10-Minute Plank Workout. It’s a good one! Let me know what you think of it!

Question of the Day

Do you use social media (blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) to tell people about your workouts? Why or why not?
