Today's secret ingredient is....

SPINACH!! Popeye would be so proud of me :). You can barely taste it in there! I eat spinach on a regular basis, whether it be sauteing it or blending it in with my smoothie but the only problem I have with doing it the latter way is that it distorts the color of my drink and it also makes me wonder if I am eliminating the vitamin and nutrient content of the spinach. I was contemplating this thought as I enjoyed my breakfast:
Do I look happy or what!
I digress.. my run this morning was pretty tough. I'm not sure if it was the fact that I was up late salsa dancing (a post for another time since I forgot to take pictures last night!) or that I drank my coffee too fast this morning but I had side pains for almost my entire run. I managed to run past the pain though with a few breaks here and there.

Now I've only recently become a runner in the past month or so. If you would have asked my former 16 year old self whether or not I would ever enjoy running more than 5 minutes straight, I would have laughed in your face and called you ridiculous (liz lemon!). Well.. it's not so ridiculous anymore as I can happily say I run about 5 miles every other day. Surprise surprise.. The runners high actually does exist!

Off to get my day started.

Song of the day: Paramore "The only exception"
So many happy thoughts of the day to share: football season!! and I don't mean european "football." The prospect of fall and the start of NFL season makes me giddy!  Also, AMAZING below! Big changes I hope to come...
