Best Post-Run Treat? PS Coffee!

This morning’s workout was no joke.  I woke up bright n’ early and did repeat stairs over by Thomas Park in Southie.  I haven’t done a stair workout in months so this definitely kicked my butt!  I put the “Pink” station on Pandora and rocked out to my favorite ladies: Pink, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and even Avril Lavigne had a couple good songs on the station.  Nice work, Pandora!

I raced up the 70 steps, jogged down the other side, and repeated.  Not sure how many times I did it, but I was on the steps for about 30 minutes and then jogged around the streets for a cool down.

Tired, shaky legs….

What’s the best treat after a great workout?  PS Coffee, of course!  I packed a couple bucks in my running shorts this morning and stopped by PS after my workout.

I have no clue what they put in the PS Special but it’s freakin’ amazing. :D

Dinner

The plan was to make a healthy grilled salmon, sweet potato, and broccoli dinner last night but I was more in the mood for mac & cheese.  I prepared a box of Annie’s Organic White Cheddar Mac & Cheese and added broccoli, grilled spicy sausage, and feta cheese to the mix.  I also enjoyed a couple glasses of wine – gotta drink up for my health!

For dessert, we enjoyed homemade “Paleo Dark Chocolate, Coconut, Almond Butter Cups” (wow, that’s a mouthful).

Super easy to make too, you simply: melt dark chocolate and coconut flakes, add to lined muffin pan, add spoonful of almond butter (or peanut butter), and top with the remaining chocolate/coconut mix.  Then refrigerate and enjoy!

Tonight Mike and I are gonna grab dinner somewhere then head over to the Cirque du Soleil show in Seaport.  I’ve never been to the show so I’m super excited!  I just hope I’m not nervous during the entire show (I can barely watch ice skating or gymnastics since I’m so nervous they’ll fall and get hurt!)  Does anyone else have these crazy thoughts or am I just weird?? :-/

Hope you all have a FUNNN Friday!

    Cirque du Soleil is so awesome, you’re going to love it!! I loved it but was also really nervous during one of the acts (where these guys run around in giant hamster wheels, and then eventually run around the OUTSIDE of them, really high up, without anything to protect them from falling). Then one guy tripped and caught himself and I was freaking out. Afterwards, I read online that the tripping is part of the act and they do it everytime to make you nervous! So just remember they’re trying to freak you out and you’re not going to let them win.

    that dessert looks awesome, I’m going to make it this weekend.
