Before the lazy dinner ensued, I stopped by the local running store and picked up a new pair of runners last night!
(I’ve never called them runners before, but that’s what the box called them and I liked it)
It’s been nine months since I’ve bought new running shoes, but in my defense, the last time I bought new ones I bought two pair to rotate through.
Hooray for cute shoes! These are the Brooks Adrenalines GTS 11’s. Now let’s see if they don’t make it back to the store in the 14 days available for return…
Any other ladies out there that usually have to wear mens shoes for running/working out?
How do you pick which shoes you wear to run/work out? Have you found “the one” yet? I most certainly haven’t found the one. I choose a different pair each time. I think the best ones so far have been Mizuno WaveRiders. I may go back to them if the Brooks don’t work.
On to food!
I’m kind of digging this oven boycott I’ve got going on. I never really realized how much I use it and rely on it for making dinners, and being forced by the heat wave to resort to other methods has really kicked up the creativity a notch.
Well, that, and it allows me to be completely lazy when it comes to making dinner. Oh rice cooker, how I love you for doing the dirty work.
This dinner was super easy, mainly because the rice cooker did every thing except heat up the organic veggie baked beans.
All I did was put some quinoa in the bottom of the rice cooker, some chopped and washed Brussels sprouts in the top basket, and let ‘er cook. When it had two minutes left, I heated up the beans in a bowl in the microwave.
It’s going to be a long one today. I was up at 5:00 to train a client, trained one after, and then I got in a 7.5 miler on the treadmill. In all reality, I could have run it outside, but when you spend the last few days at 95 degrees and wake up one morning to it being 55 degrees, it feels damn cold!
Now I’m just waiting for the husband to get home from his meeting and then we’re off to the wedding! Hopefully I can squeeze in a nap on the way there
Have a good weekend everyone! Any fun plans this weekend?
