I am so glad the work day is over!! and The Office comes on tonight!! and tomorrow is Friday and I get to wear jeans to work!! :)
Today went by soooooo slow…I was just waiting for the work day to end.
Nick and I went to the gym after work to go running, and we didn’t have to wait for treadmills today! I was pretty excited about that. I’m hoping the gym stays this way – it’s been so crowded the past few weeks with all the “new year’s resolutioners” and the students coming back in to town.
We ran for about 30 minutes and then headed home.
What was for dinner? It DID include more meatballs, but in a different format tonight :) I didn’t want pasta again, and I figured you wouldn’t want to see the same picture again!
I bought these new buns I found at the health food store and decided to try them tonight.
If you can see the label, these are only 76 calories for 1 bun! and it was a good size, too! Plus, I can read every ingredient AND don’t have to google anything :) Right, Caitlin?
I really, really liked these. I bought them in the frozen section, so I just put two in the toaster oven for us tonight to thaw/toast them and put the rest back in the freezer for later. They have this great nutty flavor from the flax and a really good texture. They were perfect for the meal tonight, and only took a few minutes to completely thaw AND get toasty!
On the menu for tonight? Meatball Subs!
I had a piece of ff swiss toasted onto my bun, then layered on a few meatballs and some of the sauce. This. was. so. good.
Add on some of those steamer bag green and yellow wax beans, and you’ve got a quick meal!
I’m probably going to have some popcorn with olive oil and salt during The Office, so I’ll go ahead and post an older picture, just for the visual.
Editing to say I passed on the popcorn. I wasn’t that hungry after dinner, so I’m just having a cup of hot chocolate :)
Question for runners: Do you still get cramps (like in your side/rib cage/abdomen area)? I’ve only really been running for about a year, but I honestly get some type of cramp just about every time I run. It’s really frustating!
Question for everyone! What are you most proud of?
Me: Right now, I’ve been thinking of how proud I am that I am able to run. Even when I have bad days, it’s better than before I started running. This time last year, I couldn’t run more than 2 minutes at a time. I know that every time I run, I am getting stronger – and that is an awesome feeling.
