Yesterday Billy finished his project in plenty of time to hang out with me which means one thing… we got to go on a run together. I had already ran in the morning and I can only keep up with his warm-up miles these days and so it was short and sweet. It is incredible what just 20 minutes in the sun can do for your mood. I am addicted to Vitamin D.
While he was out doing his tempo miles I did Jillians 30-Day Shred. Remember how once upon I time a committed to doing that 3 times a week, I didn’t even make it through the first week. Running and spin are the only thing I truly stick to for an extended amount of time. Those mountains are going to be really hard to leave someday.
We decided to invite people over for dinner last night and I cooked for the first time in approximately 4.5 months. Billy made the steak, Pillsbury made the biscuits and I made real mashed potatoes for the first time in my life. The ratio is supposed to be 1 potato: 1 stick of butter: 1 tablespoon of salt right?
The main event was after dinner. I am telling you in all honesty, this Cinnamon Roll Cake is my new favorite dessert. Billy said it tasted like a big warm donut. If you do make it, you have to eat it straight out of the oven. It was super easy and this would be a great way to make new friends, apologize to someone or to eat while watching the Biggest Loser tonight.
This morning the alarm clock went off way too early. A definite bonus about teaching fitness classes in the morning is that you have more motivation than ever to get up and get your sweat on….that whole ‘your job is on the line’ thing gets me up every time. If it wasn’t for that I would have slept until 7:29 and eaten the second half of the above cake….good thing I didn’t because now I get to eat it after school instead.

Anyone still watching the Biggest Loser?
What was the last thing you did outside to get some Vitamin D in? (I am guessing 95% of the answers will be running/biking:)
