WIAW: Running Routine Truths Part II

What’s up my Wednesday folks!


I’m popping in for another additional to my “Truth About My Running Routine” since I couldn’t fit all those confessions into one post for this What I Ate Wednesday!



What I Ate Wednesday: FALL into Good Habits





I apologize for the crap-tastic picture, but it was before coffee so I’m not responsible for anything while not under the influence of caffeine. I made my version of Alexis’ Pumpkin Pie Smoothie with 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 cup pumpkin, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1/2 tbsp chia seeds, and 1 tbsp flax seeds. The best part of waking up is LIQUID PUMPKIN PIE.





I play games with leaves.


To keep my ADHD mind happy during a run, and take a break from thinking about food (ps: cream puffs were my latest craving), I make up some games with myself…and nature. I’ll try to push myself to run faster to catch a falling leaf, or give a branch a high five. Trees are my biggest supporters. They show up for every one of my runs, so I show them some love. And hugging would require stopping, so a high five it is.



Sooo my lunch disappeared in front of my own eyes in the matter of three seconds, so here’s a great picture of my orange!





I did however have a kale salad topped with tuna and half an avocado. Just in case you were wondering.

I have the most random playlists.


Believe it or not, this is one of the most normal playlists, since it was for my 3 miler. Usually, my taste in music for a run goes from Frank Sinatra, to Madonna, and Lady Gaga. There’s a reason I’m known as the walking jukebox..



I was so mad when I realized I left the other half of my snack at home. Instead, I had to survive another 4 hours of work on this puny Larabar.






Instead I chowed down on a couple dates before hitting the road for 4.5 miles.

I don’t wear deodorant.

I don’t mean ALL the time. This is running confessions, rememba?! But yes, probably the time most think is the best time to swipe on the lady speedstick, I come out crying like a flowy skirt wearing, dreadlocked girl named Ivy.


My thoughts are that I’m gunna sweat through it anyway, so why not let my pits breathe, and save the cancer-causing slathers for when I’m huffing and puffing up 5 flights of stairs to work. And I avoid pit stains by only wearing my favorite wide open tanks.






Dinner was my usual salmon patty with broccoli followed up with a few handfuls of popcorn.





And every time a bell rings…


I pray to God that dog is behind an invisible fence or on a damn leash. These legs are made for running, not for chewing Fido. Save it for the Milkbone!






Thanks to Jenn for hosting as usual!


Make it a great day!


Do you do anything weird during your runs?

What’s one song on your playlist now?
