I hate mornings. What is it about the night before that makes me think, "sure, 4:30 am is awesome!"? Because 4:30 is not awesome. And most days I manage to just reset my alarm and crawl back into bed.
Now that I have some actual goals and really want to meet them, it's a little harder to go back to sleep. I tried this morning, but decided since I was up, I might as well get out there and run since later it's only going to be stupid hot.
And a big, black dog does not run well in the heat. He does, however, run really well in the morning before the sun comes up and he's getting to be amazing on the leash - rarely pulls and hardly stopped to mark his territory at all this morning - a huge improvement.
So, we ran. And then I got home and made myself a smoothie for breakfast.
Which I forgot on the counter when I left.
But I still had my fancy new Qi'a cereal from Costco. Which is apparently endorsed by Food Babe - not a selling point for me. In fact, when I discovered that, I kind of rolled my eyes and considered throwing it out. Except that it's $17 a bag and kind of tasty. I'm still at war with myself over this, but since she also likely endorses things like carrots and peas, I'm probably safe eating it so long as I don't actually hand her any money to purchase it.
So I ate Qi'a on yogurt with some raspberries for breakfast which seems like a good start to a day.
