Good morning and happy Labor Day!

Today, it actually feels particularly fall-like with 59 degrees outside and high in the 70s all week.  That sure happened fast considering Saturday it was a high of 98!

I took another day off of intense exercise today so that I can make sure that my body is fully recuperated after the half marathon this past weekend.  My knee is feeling better and my muscles a lot less sore.

Yesterday, I couldn’t get over how sore my quads were because they never get sore after running…then my mom solved the problem.  She said that I was probably sore from the massage!  I totally agree with her, that man did a great job, but he was WORKING my muscles.


I started the day off with a chocolate strawberry smoothie topped with granola

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberry
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup almond breeze
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 packets of splenda
  • a pinch of xanthum gum
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 3 ice cubes and a little water for volume
Since it is chilly outside this morning, I almost wish that I had something warm for breakfast!  It seems like the Labor Day weather in Indiana is always like this.
Last year, my family and Brian went  to a little lake to spend the “last day of summer” just playing games and hanging out.  It ended up being cloudy and extremely chilly so we ate lunch all bundled together under sweatshirts and blankets and then went to the outlet mall.  As soon as we were shopping the sun came out and it was a hot beautiful day…go figure!  There is no predicting the weather here in Indiana.
What are your Labor Day plans???
