This Saturday was wonderfully productive, but I must back up first to Friday before I talk about all the excitement.
HER FRIDAY NIGHT RECAP
After work I headed straight to the gym trying not to get distracted, I knew that the treadmill was there and I wanted to flee!! But I kept focused. I am so glad I did because my run was SUCESSFUL!
Day 3 of Boston training:
Goal: 4-5 miles with a tempo run (and other stuff but you got to buy the plan to hear the rest).
- Distance: 5 miles
- Time: 40 minutes
- Calories Burned: 650
- one mile at 7:40 HARD!
I think because I had a plan, purpose,and it wasn’t just running for the sake of running it made it easier. I was proud of myself, and I think that I will be able to do my Friday workouts at the gym.
Before the gym I had one of my WEIL Bars, Goji Moji from Nature’s Path, and it hit the spot. Tasted like a fruit roll up, soft and bursting with flavor. I could taste all the cranberries and dates baked right in. It was small, but with only 170 calories it was perfect!
INGREDIENTS: Organic dates, organic fig paste, organic cashews, organic dried sweetened cranberries (organic cranberries, organic evaporated cane juice, organic sunflower oil), organic goji berries, organic dried orange peel, organic lemon juice concentrate, organic orange oil.
When I got home from the gym I had some leftover Chicken Pot Pie with a Cornbread Crust from last night. Then took off to Sbux to have tea with my friend Teracita. It was refreshing as always and before we knew it, it was 11pm and we both had to get up early this morning!
Alright finally back to today!
My fuel for the brain at 6am, a mix of Kashi Almond and Flax, with Natures Path Peanut butter Granola. Topped with strawberries and half of banana, with soy milk and a spoonful of AB.
I had my 8am A&P Lab, it was pretty easy because all we did was go over the syllabus, same as yesterdays lecture. I was out by 8:30am, but stayed around to talk to a girl who lives right near me and is going back to school to be a nurse, future study buddy!
I felt so productive this morning, I ran an errand for hubby,went to TJ’s to get this weeks groceries, deep cleaned the kitchen and dining room, and made some home-made hummus!
I was excited to find the Tofurkey, it inspired our dinner for this evening.
After I put all the groceries away. I made the BEST LUNCH. I can’t quite tell you to much about the homemade hummus part, but let’s just say it will be worth the wait;)
I made a large fruity salad topped with strawberries, oranges,pom seeds, and some Snacktrtion trail mix (there is nothing like white chocolate in your salad).
and I had a bit of Lavender chocolate for a little Saturday treat! This was very interesting because it actually tasted like Lavender!!!
This afternoon Hubby and I headed out to a local park to celebrate our dear friend Lisa’s birthday. We laid in the sun, it was 78 degrees
not meaning to brag, today and played some Bocci,Ball, an easy and entertaining game.
The Birthday Girl! Happy Birthday Lisa!
THE EATS: I was good only had a few bites here and there.
Then we came home to make dinner, a little carb loading for my long run tomorrow!!!!
Tofurkey & Whole Wheat Pasta
- 1 pack of Tofurkey Sliced Up
- 1 pack of whole wheat spaghetti noodles
- 1/2 a package of Balsamic Vinegar Veggies from TJ’s
- 1 jar of TJ’s classic marinara sauce
Ok I know these pictures look yummy but I have to say I really did not like the Tofurkey it wasn’t my favorite taste, and I usually like everything. Hubby on the other hand LOVED it, that is a first ever!!!! I ate most everything else and picked out the Tofurkey. HAS ANYONE ELSE TRIED THIS STUFF???? Let’s just say I won’t be making this anytime soon.
Look what came in yesterday!!! I am so excited to do this tomorrow, tomorrows the first day of the Sexy Sick Pack Ab Challenge . I took a picture of my abs last night so that I will have something to compare my tummy with in 30 days it will be interesting to see the results.
WOW that was a long post…man a busy Saturday and did I mention I have MONDAY OFF!!! Love being a teacher:) That is one thing I will miss when I become an RD, the school schedule.
Well I have a 11 mile run tomorrow morning at 6:30am with a local running group it will be tough to get out there that early but, if I don't make it I will have to run alone NO FUN! I haven't run a long run since THANKSGVING DAY! I am catching up on all your blogs can’t wait to hear how your weekend is going!!! Anyone else have a 3 day weekend?
