Gooood morning world!!! Or afternoon, or evening, depending on when you’re reading this I suppose…but right now as I type, its 8:09, so good morning! 😉

Today I’ve decided I need another rest day. According to my Garmin recovery adviser; I still need 34 hours of recovery time. I’m not entirely sure how much I trust that thing, but I did sleep really well last night but still woke up feeling tired and stiff and a little sore, and that’s what made me think I need another day off. Even if I did attempt the easy 3 miles that are on my scheduled today, I don’t think they would go well and I definitely wouldn’t have any fun.

I guess I’m not sure how much I trust Garmin’s sleep tracking either, but so far from what I’ve experienced, it seems relatively accurate.

After deciding I wasn’t going to run I felt super relived, which was another really good indication that I should not run today. I guess I kinda sound like I’m trying to justify my decision, but I’m really not! I’m actually quite proud of myself for listening to my body and giving it what it needs. Which was apparently another day off from running and leftover sweet potato chili for breakfast!

I’m going to have to share this recipe with you guys at some point. It’s super yummy, super healthy (especially this time around, since we used fresh tomatoes from our garden, and the tomato sauce Luke made with more tomatoes from our garden) and an interesting way to eat sweet potatoes. I’ve definitely never thought of adding them to chili before. Next time we make it I’ll definitely document the process, but for now, just know that it’s delicious and I’m eating it for breakfast like a crazy person. (But for real, why do we even classify foods as only for breakfast, or only for dinner?! So what if I want chili in the morning? Maybe I’ll have bacon and eggs for dinner! My food cravings don’t have a time limit!!!).

Well then, that was kind of a weird rant. Anyway, I’ve got a gecko to feed, bunnies to attend to, and dogs to walk. So I’ll leave you with Somewhere Now, the first track from Revolution Radio, because it’s a great song, it’s been stuck in my head for two days, and I’m in hardcore fan girl mode right now.

Happy Monday!

    I’m totally with you on not classifying foods by meal times… Without climbing on the soap box too high, BIG FOOD has been telling us for decades what we should expect to be eating at breakfast. Go for sweet potato chilli if that rocks your world – it beats cornflakes or toast any day!

      Dude, I’ll totally get up on that soapbox with you! I’ve got a plethora of issues with big food, and telling us what we should eat and when is only the very tip of the iceberg! Lol but seriously, sweet potato chili definitely beats cornflakes and toast all day, everyday. 😁
