Is it really only Tuesday?
Today has been a doozy.
I was starving this afternoon!
Not even an hour after lunch, I broke into my new Larabar :)
Thanks again, Steph!!! I was so excited to try this bar. I’d seen some good reviews and some mixed, so I was eager to try it for myself.
I loved it! Now, it’s hard to beat a REAL pb&j because it’s more than just the flavors. But I really enjoyed this bar.
Unfortunately, this did nothing for my hunger.
I ended up having a 100-calorie pack of almonds to see if that would make it better.
Eh…they were good, but nothin’. I just could not get satisfied today!
I was still pretty hungry at 4:30, but I didn’t want to eat anything else because I knew we were running after work and I didn’t want a bunch of stuff in my stomach.
Nick and I actually brought our running stuff so we could just run at a trail after work, but it was so windy in town that we came back home instead :)
It was only 57 degrees today and windy while we were running. Chilly!
We had 5 miles on the schedule today and I did it! This is the longest I’ve run since our insane 10K Trail Run in June. I kept a good pace today, even with the wind and the fact that I got even hungrier.
Nick ended up having a pretty rough day today and wanted to go to our favorite local place, The New River Grille, so we did.
The special sounded pretty good tonight and I just didn’t think I could handle my normal onion rings, so I went against all my normal tendencies here tonight :)
My meal came with a side salad, and the main part was some grilled chicken, stuffed tomatoes (with house made breadcrumbs) and green beans.
These tomatoes tasted like pizza! Good.
I’m sure this meal will definitely feel better in my belly than the burger and onion rings would have, but I did miss them.
The owner actually told me tonight while we were paying that they changed their onion ring recipe and I’ll need to try it since I’m their official onion ring taste tester :) I guess I do get them a lot.
We’re finally home, showered, and both in our pj’s on the couch.
I have a feeling some hot tea is in order.
I loved reading all of your dream jobs – I think we should all go after them! Baby steps, right?
