Well, our run didn’t happen, but I’ll get to that in a minute.
This afternoon was pretty good – I worked on my report and just about have it finished! I’m hoping to get it done tomorrow, and I think I’ll be able to regardless of whatever else comes in tomorrow.
I got hungry this afternoon so I snacked on a mix of dried peach, dried apricots, and a few dried strawberries to hold me over. They were so sweet and chewy – it was just what I needed, and just enough to get me home and into my busy evening.
We had to stop and fill up the car on the way home, and as soon as I got back, I changed clothes and went to weigh in for the month. Thank goodness that’s done! I don’t know how May is going to be (besides busy!) so I’m glad I got it done. By the time I got home, Nick was up working in the garden, so instead of going running, we just decided to work a bit in the garden before heating up dinner. Yeah, I probably should have gone running, but it was almost 7 pm by then and I was starving. I know I’ll get to go later this week and I’m not training for anything so no biggie.
Nick took care of the weeds in the garden and I watered the peas and tomatoes. It’s been dry + hot the last couple of days, so our little plants were parched! I watered them really good. I think we’re supposed to get some more rain this week, so I hope they perk up soon. I want some veggies :)
Dinner tonight was leftovers of the pasta dish, but I decided to be even lazier and just make a mountain of my meal.
I layered about a cup of green beans on the bottom of my bowl, topped it with a serving of the red pepper pasta, and drizzled it with a little olive oil, parsley, and crushed red pepper. On top of spaghetti…is it stuck in your head now? It’s stuck in mine!
I’d been waiting for this treat all day. I had already decided that I was going to have this tonight, so I’ve been thinking about it since this morning.
It’s my first food EVER from Whole Foods – I know, right? What took me so long? :) We don’t have a Whole Foods here, or a Trader Joe’s for that matter, so I miss out on a lot! Beadie was nice enough to bring me a little “Richmond” goodie bag this weekend and these chocolate chewies were included. They are so super cocoa-y and crumbly. I love the deep chocolate flavor in these. Thanks Beadie!
I’m off to pack my lunch for tomorrow and have a lazy night on the couch with Nick and Roxy.
If you have a Whole Foods / Trader Joe’s, what are your favorite things to get? I need ideas for when I do get to go :)
