Holy Moley…it is Friday! WOOT! My Fridays aren’t usually any different than any other day of the week but simply knowing that it is Friday makes me instantly happy! This morning I polished off a 10 mile run (no surprise there) but I added some additions to my run. I played with the speeds and the inclines. I had to treadmill it because I have my running group in about an hour and I didn’t want to run in the dark this morning. Anyway…I ended up bouncing around the whole time with speeds between 7.0 – 7.5. It was HARD, FUN, and SWEATY!!! 🙂 Now I am drinking my java and thinking about what I want for breakfast! Waffles would be good. But do we have a waffle maker…no…do I have any frozen waffles…no…so will I be eating waffles for breakfast…again…no! haha! 🙂
Speaking of coffee…do you have a favorite coffee cup? I do. I love drinking my coffee out of this baby! Isn’t it cute and I swear that my coffee even tastes better from this bad boy!
Since I am obviously on a coffee kick this morning; how do you like yours? Keith swears I am really just drinking coffee flavored water because I brew about 10 cups to 4 scoops (regular not jumbo) of coffee. Plus I also buy the mild breakfast blend (from Whole Foods…it is the best!) What can I say…I like it weak!?
How do you like your coffee? STRONG or WIMPY?
Moving on from coffee…yesterday, Julie posted a link to an awesome blog that I want to urge you guys to visit. It is called Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project. It is a teacher, Mrs. Q who is taking on the crappy lunches served in American schools. She writes, “It’s very challenging to teach students when they are eating school lunches that don’t give them the nutrition they need and deserve. Oftentimes what is served barely passes muster as something edible. And after a meal high in sugar and fat and low in fiber, they then must pay attention in a classroom. I’m going to attempt to eat school lunch everyday in 2010. As a teacher it’s available to me as well for a few dollars. Most of the students at my school get free lunch or reduced. I’m going to take pictures of the school lunch and post them. Normally I shop for organic fruits and veggies. I avoid processed foods and food high in sugar and high fructose corn syrup, but I normally eat food brought from hom including leftovers, sandwich, or a “healthy” microwave meal for lunch with yogurt and a piece of fruit. The reason I’m eating school lunch every day is to raise awareness about school lunch food in America. ”
Let’s all support Mrs. Q on this journey and follow her blog!!
