A happy running moment and lazy girl meals.

Wednesdays are the days I like to meet up with my buddy Elyse for a sunrise run- the miles go by while we chat and catch up on each other’s lives. We met at 6 a.m., just before sunrise. We ended up covering a little over 5 miles. I always enjoy getting out with friends to run, especially with the hustle and bustle of the work week it’s nice to just have a little happy running moment with a friend. Good times.
How can you not be a morning runner when the sunrise is this beautiful.
We talked about the Olympics which is coming on this Friday. Will you be watching? PRO Compression socks is doing a special deal on their limited edition “USA” marathon socks to celebrate. If you are a runner and you do not have at least one pair of compression socks you are truly missing out on life. They are great for recovery after a hard run or workout. I have the pink ones and they are heaven.
Tonight I will be teaching dance class and I am excited about it! I have said it before but I love teaching at the 24 Hour Fitness gym in Murphy. As a fitness instructor, when you know all of the proper equipment at the gym is ALWAYS working, like the mic, stereo, pitch etc. this makes your life a happier one. Plus I love the energy of the Murphy club, they work hard and they love to dance. My trademark move is getting them to drop it like it’s hot so we will be incorporating this oldie but goodie.
After dance class I will likely come home and pass out on the couch. I am rarely ever hungry after my high impact sweaty dance class but I have to force myself to eat…my little quick lazy girl meal when I don’t feel like cooking is now something I would like to introduce to you as Laughing Cow Skinny Zesty Mac n Cheese. I know, that’s quite wordy. Anyways, here’s the recipe. Serves 1.
1 serving of elbow macaroni
1 wedge of laughing cow light cheese (I have been using the blue cheese kind because it has so much flavor but I also like original swiss)
Garlic powder
Red Pepper Flakes
1 tbsp of light butter, or I can’t believe its not butter
Cook the mac, then mix in laughing cow cheese and light butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder and basil. Top with red pepper flakes. That’s it! It really needs no salt, no pepper. It has flavor all on its own!
What is a quick lazy go to meal you like to whip up? Are you going to watch the Olympics? What is your favorite Olympics event?

  1. My credit card screamed at me “BUT YOU ALREADY HAVE TWO PAIRS!!!!” when I clicked Purchase on the limited edition socks. But c’mon – I needed them. Perfect Olympic spectating attire πŸ™‚

  2. I have the pink PRO Compression socks to and I la-la-love them. Post long run must have.

    I have been sneaking in some early sunrise runs myself and I can not think of a more perfect way to start the day. From that run on out things seem to go much smoother.

    Last, but not least….

    I HEART the Olympics! The countdown is on! I am looking forward to cheering on Team USA all the way!
