Pretty Post-Work Run around the Lake

Hi bloggy world! I hope your Thursday’s treating you well so far, and you’re headed full speed ahead toward the weekend.

I had a great day today! It sped by, I got a lot done, and even had a little fun. (woo rhyme!)

In order to ensure a great start, breakfast was a bowl of blueberrynanabutter n’ agave oats:

Yep, pretty much the shiznizzle. It had Bees Knees Peanut Butter, a smushed nanner, a half cup of blueberries, and some agave. So good.

A few hours later I broke out the ginormous grapes once again because I was feeling like chomping on something:

They satisfied the feeling quite well 😀

Lunch was at TGIF’s today for a coworker’s birthday. I couldn’t decide between the pecan crusted chicken salad and key lime shrimp, but I went with the shrimp:

It was SUPER tasty, but left me full for only an hour or so. Once I got back to work I was a snack monster and had a piece of dark chocolate, and a bowl of granola + blueberries + 0% fage.

I got the nicest compliment today at work. One of the coordinators is changing areas, and before leaving he told me I was the best planner he’s ever worked with at (insert company name here)!!!!! It just made me beam. I’ve only been in this position for nine months, and made a pretty big jump in the company from the position I was in before, so I love to hear that I’m doing a good job. I swear, sometimes I’m like a dog – I thrive on management at work patting me on the head complimenting me. It just makes me want to do a better job. Plus, it lets me know that what I do is somewhat of worth. It makes up for those who make you feel worth-LESS.

After work, it was time for a run! My friend, Debby joined me, and we ran around the lake out behind where we work. One time around is 1.5 miles, and I ran around 3times. The lake is so pretty (well, except for the goose shit) and I feel so lucky to work so close to an awesome running spot!


Whoop whoop!

Now it’s time to get home to my hubski and cook some dinner. I’m thinking Turkey burgers and sweet potato fries are on today’s menu. NOM!

    You have a great running spot. I love running by water, especially the ocean. I also have the same polar HRM. I use it mostly at the gym because my husband gave me a Garmin for my birthday. But I love my Polar…..I like that it's pink 🙂
