Interval Run and Big Brother!

So before I start here, just a side note…….When you are chatting with your Mother on the phone (Who just came back from Mexico yesterday) and she asks you if you’ve ever had Brazilian……clarify what she means before answering! How was I supposed to know she meant a Brazilian Steakhouse a la carte restaurant at their resort??

I really was hoping it would warm up enough to get outside for a run but no luck…..brrrr…… Screw that! 

I powered up for my run with 1/2 a grapefruit that I sprinkled with stevia and cinnamon and then broiled in the oven…..tastes so much better this way then cold.

I am so happy that they moved close to us! I am not from this area so it is great to have such good friends so close! Monday morning I will definitely be hitting the pavement to burn off that wine! I am hoping to get in a 15 km run if the weather cooperates!
