Hi, guys! I hope everyone is fully recovered from New Year’s Eve by now. I might have had just a wee bit too much wine, but that’s what celebrating is all about. So, no regrets!
I’m linking up with Amanda for this weeks edition of Thinking Out Loud. This couldn’t have come on a more perfect day because I’ve got lots of randomness to share with y’all!
It took a lot of urging with myself, but I was able to get my lazy butt out the door for a 14 mile run. I just had to ring in 2014 with 14! Considering I ran 13 miles last New Year’s Day; next year is looking a little scary.
Just FYI, drinking almost a full bottle of wine and eating too much cake the night before a 14 mile run is not a wise decision. I felt fine when I woke up, so I thought all was good. My run went great and luckily when I got home I had some Muscle Milk to help me refuel. But it wasn’t long after I had been home that I got sick and I mean REALLY sick. I’m glad that I was able to get the run in, but the rest of the day was pretty much wasted because I felt like sh$%t for several hours. Yuck!
The people at Muscle Milk are soooooo generous. They are sponsoring the ZOOMA race in Austin and as an ambassador they sent over Muscle Milk Light to help fuel our training runs. These are delicious and the nutritional stats are pretty awesome too! They contain 20 essential vitamins and minerals, are sugar, lactose and gluten-free and depending on size have 14-30 grams of protein.
If you’re interested in running a half-marathon, 10k or 5k in April, with me (in Austin, TX); register here—> http://zoomarun.com/texas/registration/and use code TXAMB4 for a 10% discount. ZOOMA races are supposed to be AWESOME. This will be my first one and I’m so excited!
Have you made your slideshow with 2013 photos, yet? I had so much fun with this Tuesday night. Get the free app, Flipagram. You can use any photos, even those from Facebook and set your slideshow to music.
I was sure to eat my black-eyed-peas for prosperity in the new year…. taco style with guacamole! This Spicy Mexican Black-Eyed-Pea Casserole is good any day of the year!
I already shared with you how much I loved the novel, Me Before You, by JoJo Moyes and that I would be reading The Girl Left Behind, by the same author. I’m not completely finished with The Girl You Left Behind, but I’m really loving it and totally anxious to see how it ends. Two winners in a row!!!!!

Something to think about…..
Have you read any of Jojo Moyes books? Or any other really great books, lately?
Have you ever tried Muscle Milk? Do you drink any type of special shake after working out?
Did you eat anything special for New Year’s Day?
