You Get What You Give…

I meant to blog last night but it just didn’t happen-sorry!

Anyways, yesterday my mom stopped by St. Louis Bread Co (Panera Bread, for you none Missouri folks!) and brought me a bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich that I inhaled for breakfast without snapping a picture first! I love that particular breakfast sandwich. It sits with you for a long time and keeps me from snacking too much before lunch time.

I also got a caramel latte, which is also super delicious!

I don’t know if it’s just that it’s winter or what, but it seems like the honeycrisps aren’t quite as sweet as usual here lately.

PS-all this is yesterdays snackings and food what-nots.

Last night I got home and changed and headed to the gym to get a run in on the treadmill. I alternated between running at a 15 minute/mile pace and walking at a 20 minute/mile pace. I tried to keep my walking as short as possible, never longer than .15 of a mile and put two miles in in 33 minutes. So not too bad…a good sweaty workout!

I also managed to find my Garmin heart rate monitor strap! Woot Woot 🙂 So now I can fully track my calories burned and heart rate and everything. I’ve only been looking for it for the last month!

Fast forward to today-for breakfast I had my usual homemade latte drink, and then half of a cinnamon roll from Bread Co.

Tonight I have yoga on deck-hopefully any bad weather can wait until after I get home from class!

Getting what you give


Is anyone else guilty of doing this? I know I am. As soon as I get pissed off, I start looking for horrible, mean things to say. Which isn’t very grown up or nice, and as someone who got picked on a lot when I was younger, I should know better.

I’m a big believer in Karma. You get what you give. If you put hate and nasty things and thoughts out there, that’s what’s going to come back you. If you put happiness and nice things out, that’s what you’re going to receive back. And even though it’s one of the hardest things to do, you have to remember to fight fair and not bring anyone else down just because you are the one who is feeling crappy.

I felt this way a couple of weeks ago. Like everyone hated me, and I didn’t fit in any where at all. Even at place I normally felt welcomed at. It put me in a really bad mood, and it lead to doing and saying things I’m not proud to have done or said. So I made the decision to start changing my attitude because I’m the only one who can! And so far things seem to be working 🙂

As a final note-I want to say hello and thank you to the new followers I’ve gotten these past couple of weeks! I’m glad you’ve decided to take a peek into my little corner of the interenets and liked what you saw enough to come back!
