Half way through the Hump Day!! How’s your week going? Mine is just whizzing by. I can’t believe tomorrow is Thursday already. Today was hectic. It seemed like my phone was ringing nonstop. Every time I went to start one task, I got a call for another! I hate that…
I knew it wasn’t going to get me down though, because this is the sky I lost myself in during my early morning walk with Niko:
After my dawn-light walk, I blended up a Green Monster! I haven’t had one of these suckers all week, so it made me a happy camper:)
In today’s mix was Green SuperFood, a green apple, 1 kiwi, 1 carrot, spinach, almond milk, and some ground flax.
That baby kept me full for a good three hours. Once the three hours were up, I made some creamy oats, Carrots ‘N Cake style.
Oh so good! This meal filled me up to the brim. Even though I wasn’t hungry yet, I took my lunch a few hours later because I had to get out – the weather was perfect!
I’ve been wanting to try a running skort, so I got this cute little black one!
The skort’s! I’m taking a rest day today, so I didn’t fully break it in, but I did a little simulated run around my kitchen, and so far, so good. I also got some Arnold Sandwich Thins and some Diet Dr. Pepper (DDP) for the hubski (his crack.) I’d been to Target for longer than I’d planned (big surprise!), so I decided to just grab a lunch there and make it when I got back to work. I ended up trying a Kashi frozen meal – Chicken Florentine.
Wow, this was awesome! I’m a HUGE fan of pine nuts and spinach and the Florentine flavor altogether, so I knew I’d love this combination.
It was awesome, but let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t have any meetings afterward. Whew, was it garlicy! For my pre-run snack I had some fage with a TLC bar again (no picture, but it looked the same as yesterdays, I promise!)
I decided to change up my rest days this week. I’m taking my rest day tonight instead of tomorrow because, well, I just feel like it! haha. Plus, my tempo run was a little rough, and a day off would probably do me well.
However, now I have more time to devote to dinner tonight! I’m trying a new recipe: Creamy Quinoa Primavera. Sounds good, eh?? I’ll post the recipe tonight or tomorrow morning and let you know how it turned out.
What’s on your dinner plate tonight?
