Happy end to your Monday! I am so glad today is over :) I think we have some plans for this weekend, and I’m excited about them. It should be a good rest of the week.
Nick and I ate lunch outside today since it was beautiful, in the 80s, and a little breezy.
I had some of my lunch dish for this week: Curry Chicken Bulgur Salad (recipe coming later)
Some broccoli – look how much prettier it is in fresh sunlight! Too bad I can’t bottle this light and take it with me everywhere!
Plus some pineapple and cantaloupe
We ran over to Target to get out of the office for a while, so by the time I got back, I didn’t have time to blog at lunch. I get so sidetracked by everything at Target! I go in thinking “I’m going to look at this and this”, but then I end up in like 5 other sections somehow. I did restrain from buying anything today – I found some cute sandals, but couldn’t really decide if I wanted them or not, so I put them back. If they’re meant to be, they’ll be there the next time I’m there. Plus, if I’m going to buy shoes, I really need to get a pair of cute tennis shoes (the ones that don’t really look like tennis shoes) for Honduras. Any suggestions? I think I have to wear skirts everyday, so I want a pair of comfy shoes I can wear with everything – maybe some that don’t have to be laced up?
I figured we would be running once we got home, so I packed a snack to have around 3 pm today – and it was good.
I packed about 1/2 -3/4 cup fat free plain yogurt, the last 8 raspberries, and one of my oatmeal bars that I baked this weekend. Don’t worry – I’ll post the revised recipe soon ;) It only had one difference, but they turned out great!
Obviously, I saved the most chocolatey bites for last.
It was perfect running weather today – honestly, if there wasn’t a breeze, it would have just been hot! But we had just enough of a breeze to make it really nice. We ran about 3.25 miles in a little over 30 minutes. That’s about normal for me, but I looked and my pace on the 3rd mile was 9:11! I think that’s the fastest I’ve ever run so far! I think it’s the kelly green running gear :) Maybe just because it’s my favorite color?
Dinner tonight was a tried and true recipe, with one change.
I made Ellie Kreiger’s Fettuccine with Creamy Red Pepper-Feta Sauce, but used about 1 Tbsp fat free feta and .5 oz of the cheese curds we got at the farmer’s markets last week. It turned out great! I also added some roasted garlic chicken sausages to the pasta for some protein and a bag of steamed green beans on the side.
Easy and good! I like Ellie Kreiger’s recipes – every one I’ve tried has turned out really good.
I’m off to catch up on blog before the How I Met Your Mother comes on.
What are your most comfortable pair of shoes?
my running shoes are pretty comfy, but I have this one pair of brown snake print flats from payless that are SO comfy! I don’t know why they’re so comfortable, but I could wear them everyday.
