Getting Back into the Swing of Things…

Well those 5 days off for Thanksgiving were much-needed but it makes Monday that much harder.

Although our departure time from Ithaca was pretty early on Sunday morning, I wanted to get one last run in because the scenery is just so surreal.  I had no expectations on how far I was going to go, I just know I promised I would be back in an hour…


..and just like that, I was back in an hour.  I am more impressed with my timeliness than I am with my run…

I even stopped to take some pictures..


…darn, I miss this. 

Without leaving much time to spare after my run, I was forced to eat breakfast as we were heading out the door.


Literally, heading out the door.  Classy.

With a heavy mileage 5 days, Monday was just a crossfit day…and I was not about the whole waking up early the Monday morning after a long vacation to run.

But today (Tuesday) was a different story.  With a primarily shoulder workout at crossfit later on, I figured I could handle a nice little morning run.


Short and sweet to kick off the morning.  My breakfast was also pretty darn sweet.  I had an oatmeal craving so I made a nice little Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal bowl.

1/3 Cup Oatmeal
2 Egg whites
2 Tbsp. Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Maca Powder
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Maple Extract
Pumpkin Seeds


I am 100% incapable of making food look pretty, especially oatmeal.  I always think its going to turn out like…


Close, right?! Ha Ha

Fast forward hours later and I got my shoulders annihilated at Crossfit.  It was painfully awesome and felt great to get some solid strength in after a week of just running.


Well it has certainly been a little tough getting back into work mode after a great holiday but it’s almost Wednesday!  And soon it will be almost Christmas! 🙂 Positive thinking!
