Fresh Air and Salty Sweat Solves The World’s Problems

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday AKA we made it through Monday 🙂

Thank you to everyone who posted and sent sweet thoughts my way yesterday.  In reality I got some frustrating news that I let kind of take the life out of me through the morning and afternoon.

All of your sweet comments reminded me that I was going to be fine and just as you all assumed:  a run with the boys was all I needed to turn the day around.

This is post run: Gus is normally FLYING down this hallway in front of us. I guess we sufficiently pooped him out.

Zach and I were both ready the second I got home to take advantage of what sun and warmth we had left (it was so beautiful here yesterday.  I wish I had taken pictures on the run but this was one of those runs where I just couldn’t stop).

Workout of the Day: 3.3 miles + Abs

Not my fastest 3.3 miles ever but it was my first run outdoors since being sick/in Europe AND we picked a very hilly route (I need hill training bad) so overall I was very happy with it.

Actually, I just say we blame Gus for being slow 😉

I ended the run feeling AWESOME, strong and relieved. . . just what I needed.  Really, is there anything fresh air and salty sweat can’t fix?  I wrapped up the work out with a quick Ab NTC app routine.

Dinner

I have been talking about my quesadillas since Zach got home, so last night we decided to do another version of them!  This time, all the ingredients were fresh and/or grilled.  Including the quesadilla itself.  YUM!

Ingredients

  • 1 large chicken breast grilled by Zach
  • 1/2 yellow pepper
  • 1/2 orange pepper
  • 1 can of green chilies
  • 1/2 cup of chopped mushrooms
  • mixed greens
  • 1/3 cup of shredded cheese

All shared between the two quesadillas.   Zach grilled the chicken while I prepped the goodies.  Zach started the quesadillas while the chicken finished, and then chopped and added the chicken + top tortilla to flip.  They were absolutely perfect enjoyed with a Magic Hat.

Don’t judge me . . . it was a tough Monday.

We watched a bit of TV before calling it early, once again.  Anybody else out there watch The Bachelor last night?  I don’t know I feel like the girls have VERY good points against JP. . . but it all seemed like they were TRYING to harp on him, which was a bit frustrating to watch.  To be honest my favorite part was the beginning with Catherine and Sean.  “Quick fireworks!”  I died!

This Morning

I took the opportunity to sleep in once again this morning (glorious) knowing that the hubby was taking care of the pup and making me oatmeal for breakfast.  I’m spoiled :).

BUT I did sneak in a quick 15 minute NTC app routine, and have a yoga class planned for the PM.   Perfect for me 🙂

And the menu tonight?  Tuna and salads. . . YUM!

Question of the Morning:  Do you use fresh air and salty sweat to get “unfrustrated?”  What can it solve for you?

  1. As I mostly run around our harbour, I rely on fresh air and salty sea air as well as salty sweat to burn off frustrations. Hope you have a better day today! 🙂

  2. Working out definitely helps with the crappy days. For me, it distracts from whatever is bothering me and I focus just on what my body is doing and how it’s feeling. It usually helps to put things in perspective. Beer is also good at doing this – especially all the awesome microbrews you can get in Colorado.

  3. A nice long walk almost always helps to make me calmer, I can’t wait to do more walking once the weather warms up.
