Marina and the Diamonds and Chia seeds and 45 minutes on the treadmill!

“Where did this SPURT energy come from this AM???”  I was retracing my steps in the last 24 hours in my head as I breezed through my run on the treadmill…

I have a strong feeling that I should be attributing this to my new sandwich recipe… It’s slightly magical if I do say so myself.

I’ve coined my own version of Cinnamon toast.  I make it with this great busy-looking slice of Whole grain bread with 6 grams of fiber, The light version of “smart balance spread” enhanced with omega 3 fatty acids, a handful of Chia Seeds, and a sprinkling of Cinnamon.

It has become my favorite food on EARTH and when I toast it just right it’s better than a frosted cupcake.

Today’s run was EASY – I could have done more but I had no time plus I’ve been feeling EXHAUSTED after my runs lately so I didn’t want to get to work and pass out on my office floor.  I’ve also been drinking lots of water throughout my runs on the treadmill which is the one nice advantage of running indoors on a rotating belt…. BLECH…

Side note: I’m in love with a new artist who definitely played a roll in fueling my run – Marina and The Diamonds – Her stuff keeps getting better the more I listen to it… Here’s my favorite song:

I love this one too:
