Tired Tuesday

I think Tuesday is the new Monday. I am so sleepy this morning, but I think it is to the point where getting more sleep is not going to help.  Last night I went to a 7PM movie with my book club ladies to see The Help. I really enjoy this move and think they did a great job adapting the movie from the book. This was the first movie in a long time that I did not get any popcorn, candy or drink while in the movie theater. It was tough but I made sure to eat before I went so I wasn't hungry.
Yesterday I started a challenge of eating clean. I made it until dinner time before going off script. The original plan was to eat Thai lettuce wraps at happy hour with my book club, but things came up and I missed the happy hour part. Instead a gobbled done a bowl of Cheerios and a banana with Chocolate Almond Butter and head out.   Today I am more prepared and I think I can make it through the day without any incidents.

It was nice to have a rest day on Monday, strange but nice. Today my plan calls for 4 Mi @14:23, I have been warming up at 14:23, and then doing the rest of my mileage in the 13:30 range. I will probably do that again tonight and just go for a full 60 minutes. With my 10K on Sunday I want to work on some endurance. My last 10K time was 1:18:23 and right now I don't know if I will beat that time, but I hope by the Iron Girl 10K I will be able to.

Now the question that has been bugging me for a few days......do you keep your Peanut Butter or Almond Butter in the cabinet or the refrigerator? We have always kept our Peanut Butter in the cabinet, but after this week I got to thinking, does Almond Butter need to be put in the fridge? What do you do?


  1. Way to go at the movies! I am impressed!

    I am reading The Help right now and really like it. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see the movie soon.

    I always refrigerate all the "butters"- peanut, almond, sunbutter. I'm honestly not sure if it's always required... but I just do it anyway :-)

    Have a great day!

  2. My peanut butter and nutella always sit out on my counter. I've honestly never heard of anyone refrigerating it.

  3. I read The Help and loved the book...little nervous about seeing the movie though. So far the previews don't appear to illustrate the book as I read it.

    Glad to hear you thought it did.

  4. I read the book last year so it wasn't as fresh in my mind. :)

  5. we have pb and cashew butter in the cabinet. i've never had a problem with the pb being out, but the cashew butter is a little runny.... not sure if that's bc it's in the cabinet or bc it's cashews.
