My Achy Breaky Heart

Mr. T and I did another workout together, but this time we smartened up and went in the morning. It's getting way too hot in the evenings and I just thought it might be a little dangerous to run hard when it's 101 outside. So this morning we got up at about 6am (Isabelle was our alarm clock) and we warmed up for the workout. When I wake up I crave my coffee! Since being a mom, I have become such an addict! I wish I could drink it before I run, but I wouldn't make it a half mile before I would have to sprint home to use the bathroom. It wouldn't be the first time for that to happen...I promise I have been on world record pace when I'm sprinting home.  TMI? Sorry Charlie, I'm what you call an over-sharer.

We did 4x 800(half mile) with 2 minute recovery. Then we finished with 4x400's(quarter mile) with 90 sec recovery. This workout was pretty hard for me..I don't know if I was just having a bad day, or if it's because I am used to working out in the evenings now. Do you workout better in the mornings or evenings? Does it make a difference or am I just a weenie?

After finally having some coffee (hallelujah!) and breakfast, Isabelle and I went to my mom's house to hang for a while. My mom has two yippee, annoying, cute dogs that Isabelle LOVES. She follows them everywhere and then right when she gets close...they run away. She thinks it's funny, they think it's terrifying.  

The girls teasing Isabelle with their cuteness...sorry for the crappy iPhone quality pic. Even though I found my camera, I forgot it today somewhere in my house. I'm a slow learner.

Tonight I made the perfect summer meal that from a recipe that I got from Jami HERE Even Mr. T thought it was delicious and requested that I "add it to the rotation". (If I ever cook for you, be careful on telling me you like it or else you will get it every other night for the rest of your life *cough*chicken enchiladas*cough.) and he generally only likes things that are covered in butter (can you hear those arteries slamming shut yet?!), fried (now you can..SLAM) and doesn't resemble the color green.   

I know this doesn't look that good...but it's only due to my poor photography skills and the fact that I couldn't stop eating it long enough to take a decent picture.Trust me you'll love it.

After a busy day I can sit back, relax and try and figure out what to do with this little mullet Isabelle is trying to work. I had a mully mullet/ mushroom haircut when I was growing up and I was horrified by the pictures  my entire life for a few years. I promised myself I would never do that to my I must have to figure something out before it's too late! I shouldn't allow my daughter to have a baby duck tail that's just itching to become a full on mullet that would make Billy Ray Cyrus (Miley Cyrus' dad for you tweeners) proud.

Good thing, I think she's the cutest thing in the world and could rock 
blue, pink, green or no hair (but Isabelle, please don't do that to your beautiful hair when you get older. You had to work for that hair. You had to go through a mullet stage for that hair!). I guess we'll just have to wait it out!

The mullet stage is hilarious! Oh my goodness, one day she will look back and laugh!

Like you I am a coffee addict! I have tried to drink it before I run but it just doesn't work. I either feel super shaky or my tummy hates me :( Darn it!

Your morning workouts will get easier! It's tough to go from night workouts where you have been up, to mornings where you are still trying to wake up, lol. I only run in the morning and love it. Although I tend to hit a wall around 3 and want so badly to take a nap!

You are not truly a runner until you've had to sprint home or to a washroom LOL!

Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could find yours!
