On Tuesday, my friend Anna wrote on her Facebook that she was making cupcakes. Knowing I would see her yesterday, I jokingly commented that she should bring me one. I was quite surprised and touched when she showed up at Anthem, cupcake in hand.
I used it as my motivation to go workout today. No exercise, no cupcake. So, I ran (I decided to stick with the plan and do yoga another time).
I got to the Y, hopped on the treadmill, and pounded out 3.0 miles in 33:14.
I was really tempted to dig into the cupcake as soon as I got home, but I had some level of self-restraint and started with a bit of sustenance. A green monster with a banana, spinach, 1 cup almond milk, and a scoop of vanilla Sun Warrior protein powder.
A few years ago, if you had told me this was the kind of stuff I would be eating, I would never have believed you! Sometimes, I still listen to myself talk about my food and exercise habits and wonder who IS this girl?. I am beyond words happy about how my lifestyle has changed.
After the green monster, I finally enjoyed the mocha cupcake with coffee frosting. I may or may not have been thinking about it all day long.
I have three words for you, my friends:
It was that good. And, with that, I’m off to relax for the evening with a book, perhaps a glass of wine, and a new episode of The Big Bang Theory.
