Sans Garmin

Another bright and early Sunday morning. I woke up at 7:30 am and had a small bowl of my multi grain cereal and started to get ready for my run. I went to put on my Garmin, and noticed it was dead. I couldn't believe it, I had to run outdoors sans Garmin. I haven't done that since I got the Garmin. Oh well. I wasn't going to wait a 1/2 hour until it was barely charged enough to go. It was already starting to get warm. I went on with my run. I timed myself the old fashion way, by a standard watch. It was an average run, until I was heading back and came up and over the freeway and my MP3 player died. I forgot to change the batteries! It was a morning that was telling me not to run. At least I ran without injury. My knee never even bothered me.

This was also a day without the camera/phone. Barely any photos, sorry about that. I refueled post run with 1/2 a small Gatorade, the rest of my cereal and a cup of coffee. I'm glad I went running when I did, it was hotter today than it was yesterday (at least it felt that way). Once I got cleaned up, and cooled down, I was still hungry (a few hours later). I wanted to cool off with my favorite summer time snack, the fruit salad. Yummy-ness!!

I must have really worked up a hunger, because several hours later, I was starving. I decided to eat something I knew was going to fill me up...PB on toasted wheat bread and a bottle of water. I drink a lot of water, and it really quenches my thirst.

For lunch, I had left over pizza from Friday (one slice left). I had dinner plans to go to my parents to visit out of town family. My mom made her great pasta salad (kind of like my potato salad, just with small shelled pasta), hot dogs, veggie with dip and olives. More yummy-ness in my tummy!
Dessert was great, I wish I would have taken a picture. I was a small piece of chocolate cake and 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream. It was so nice to eat outside, in the shade. Perfect summer time dessert.
I'm home now, and I think I will cool off with some ice cold water and a cool shower. Bye for now!
