I had a pretty busy St. Patrick’s Day this year, and I wanted to share with you some of my favorite moments. Starting with what my favorite treat was, and my favorite activity. Lately, I have been trying to eat healthy and exercise regularly, and so far, I’m doing a pretty good job. However, I find that the best way for me to maintain a mostly healthy diet is to have some sort of cheat snack every once in a while. I say “snack” instead of “meal” because if I do cheat and splurge on something it’s usually a craving for something sugary or salty, and it doesn’t take much to satisfy that craving.
St. Patrick’s Day Dessert
I knew I wanted to do some sweet treat for St. Patrick’s day, and I thought donuts would be good because I could grab a donut for that cheat snack if I needed it. A good cup of coffee was just perfect for this sweet treat. Plus, I wanted to do something festive for the holiday. So this happened…
St. Patrick’s Day 5K
I have to say, I did end up eating more than just one donut, but I couldn’t help it. They were delicious! I didn’t feel too bad about it either because my mother and I did a 5k this morning. Notice, I specifically don’t say the word “run” because let’s be honest, I walked the entire time. It was the Shamrock Shuffle 5k at Marietta Square. My favorite part about this was the amazing scenery we got to see as we walked. Some of the houses around the area clearly have so much history and beauty.
The good news is that I hit my step goal of 10,000 for the day, the bad news is that I was sore after it. It wouldn’t have been so bad if I didn’t have to do all my grocery shopping that same day. I got a good night of sleep though, so I guess it was worth it.
