It is Monday!  I started the day off by sleeping 30 minutes past my alarm.  Lately, I have been sleeping past my alarm and I think it has to do with the fact that my schedule this summer has been so unpredictable.  I love how I am always doing something different, working with different people, and am always busy, but when it comes down to it I am a creature of habit and I love routine.  Even though I slightly overslept, I still had time to fit in a 4.5 mile run, walk Bella, and make banana bread!  I will attribute my productive morning to me thinking I had to be at work an hour earlier than I actually did…thank goodness for that!

This morning, I actually had scheduled to run 4 miles.  I planned a route in advance, and then after running it I tracked the distance on  It is such a useful resource, and I found out I actually ran a half mile longer than I planned…oops 😉

For breakfast, I had yet another smoothie bowl.  This morning it included:

  • 2/3 frozen banana
  • 1/2 packet of Swiss Miss diet cocoa
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 pinch xanthum gum
  • 2 packets of splenda
  • 1 splash of vanilla extract
  • water and ice cubes for volume
  • 1 TBS peanut butter
It was creamy, sweet, chocolatey, and peanut-buttery.  I topped it with the last date bar.  Those things lasted forever!
I am off to fit children with bicycle helmets again today, but this week should be fairly easy compared to last week.  I am ready to get things done that I have been putting off.
Question of the day:  Do you function better on a regular schedule, or do you like flying by the seat of your pants and having something change everyday??  I prefer a schedule 🙂
