I love getting up early in the morning. Its not always easy to get out of bed, but I love having that time to myself in the morning. Take this morning for example, I got up at 5am naturally with no alarm. I made myself a little breakfast, had a small coffee, and watched the news while messing around on the computer. I then headed out for at 5:50am for a 7.5 mile run. I got back just about exactly an hour later, and Shawn and Cori had just gotten up. By 10am I had cooked breakfast, washed dishes, showered, swept, vacuumed, and got all the general house cleaning done that I wanted to for the day. I just love having everything done and knowing I have the rest of the day to enjoy. Especially since we haven't seen the sun in a while and its finally back today!
Do you like to get up early and get your workouts done or do you wait until later in the day?
Once I start marathon training in a week and a half I will have no choice but to rise early to beat the heat and get in my runs before Shawn goes to work for the day! When I try to wait until the evening I find that I have no energy, so I always try to get it done early.
As promised, a recipe for the week. I made cookies with Devin yesterday because it was yet another rainy day and we needed things to do. We'd already done a foot soak and scrub and painted our toes, read books, and so on to baking we went. She has a new love for honey, so we decided on Honey Banana Oatmeal Cookies. They came out pretty good!
Honey Banana Oatmeal Cookies
1/3 cup of honey
1 banana, mashed
1 1/4 cup of oats
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbs cocoa powder (optional)
Mix all of the wet ingredients, mix the dry ingredients separately and than add them to the wet. Put 'em on a cookie sheet and bake them at 350 degrees. I think the time was like 10-12 minutes, I could be wrong so check them often! Enjoy!
Do you use honey? What is your favorite thing to do with it?
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
