1. Last night, I met Maggie for a run in Oak Brook. It was lovely, but I felt like I was dragging ass. We finished just a little more than five miles, but I had to walk the last .75. Sorry Maggie! The weather was wonderful and I'm glad I didn't waste it.
2. I got a new kitchen item last night from the Amazon fairy - stainless steel drinking straws. It may be silly, but I like my protein shakes with a straw. It feels more dessert-like with a straw. I've been eyeing these on Amazon for a while and I was so excited they arrived. My chocolate PB2 protein shake was extra special with my new straws. And yes, I enjoyed my protein shake in a frosted mug.
3. I am doubting my ability to reach my New Year's Resolution of 124 pounds. It doesn't help that I spent the last week eating smores and pasta. Oh well, I gotta just keep kicking ass and hope that my ass reduces in turn.
