If you have been following me for awhile you know that I have not been running (that will be changing soon) because of PF. I have been doing stretches morning and night (well in all honesty I had recently only been doing them in the a.m. but was convinced today to resume the twice a day with throwing what stretches I can into other parts of my day.) Anyway I have been getting up about 30 minutes earlier to do these and I am not a morning person. BUT I have found them palatable for two reasons. One is West Wing which I watch as I am doing them. I am near the end of the 6 out of 7 seasons so at some point I will have to choose my next tv obsession. But that is only one part of the equation that makes these morning exercises not so bad.

Today I am thankful for coffee! I love the stuff. I prefer - hugely prefer flavored coffee but will drink ordinary coffee in a pinch! Coffee rocks my world! If I am starving and trying not to overindulge in all that my brain craves - coffee can fill the void. It is often my post afternoon workout treat. I love coffee drinks (my Starbucks crack) but it is really just plain old flavored coffee that I want and need. I am a loyal Vermonter and my favorite brand of coffee is Green Mountain Coffee of course!
There's hazelnut, French vanilla, rain forest nut, caramel vanilla creme, mocha nut fudge and on and on. The last requirement which is actually as important as the flavor is that the coffee is steaming hot! No luke warm or reheated coffee for this coffee loving woman! It needs to be steaming hot right out of the pot!
When traveling I can't get my beloved GMC a Starbucks
with my girl works just fine!
Plus I am - ahem - not watching the weight quite so
closely when I visit Em and a "few" of
those higher calorie coffee drinks cross
