Morning Person

I am so much more of a morning person! I went for an early run this morning with my running buddies, 3 very cold but glorious miles. Felt good to get out on the road, this was only my second time running since my marathon! As you can see I haven’t been piling on the miles, but I have been working my bootie for the Bootie Buster Challenge!!

After my run I went to the market for the food I will be making over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Menus:

Christmas Eve- Cornbread Stuffing (my favorite)
Christmas Day- Cheese and Egg Casserole for Breakfast
Christmas Evening- Turkey, Organic Dressing, Sweet Pea Casserole, Hubby’s Corn, Rolls,Angela’s  This Ain’t Grandma’s Sweet Potato Casserole and fresh cranberry sauce.

Check out my first Christmas Dinner (and other Holiday Madness) from last year, I am so glad this has become a tradition!!!

After shopping I went to the Drive-through Car Wash and cleaned out my entire car inside and out for only $5 and a peace of mind!

When I got home I was famished but wanted a warm and delicious breakfast. So I made a bowl of Pumpkin Cran Oats with POM seeds.

I added in some mixed nuts on top for a little extra protein. I got this bowl from Hubby last year for Christmas I just love it!
