Good morning, darlings! I went to bed last night during a storm, which makes me sleep harder and I just could not get up this morning! Yesterday I also extended my Snooze’s life for as long as possible, before finally getting up and making a pre-running snack.
Prune + almond butter. Heaven on earth.
My run was good! I had to stop for traffic a little more than usual, but I have so much more confidence in my running since this past weekend. I really want to sign up for a race, as long as I tell myself that I will train for it properly so I don’t injure myself again like last year.

Breakfast was another awesome Amazing Grass shake.
- Amazing Grass Kidz Chocolate Superfood
- 1 banana
- 1 T chocolate PB2
- 4 oz water
- splash of coffee
It was smaller than yesterday’s and not nearly as thick, but it was still good. Not enough coffee to keep me going, however… I stopped for some on the way to my internship.
At work, I made a couple post office runs, and took advantage of the time outside to refuel with some grapes. It was incredibly humid, so these were the perfect snack! Cool and refreshing.
Everything inside was “Western”-themed, from the antler-shaped chandeliers to the cowgirl pin-ups.
I ordered a home-made black bean veggie burger with melty fontina cheese…
… with a salad.
I’d thought the burger would come plopped on top of a salad, but this was just fine. Notice the jelly jars the drinks come in (and my fleeing bun)!
I only ended up eating about 1/4 of the bun, though… it was a lot of food.
My boss surprised me by sending me home pretty much as soon as I walked back into the office. What a gift!
I had a lot of household chores on my to-do list, so I went back home to get some things done. I ate an apple while admiring my new stack of books… I love working in publishing! I don’t have time to go to the library, but then again… I don’t really need to!
Then I got down to work. Here’s what needed to get done:
- Blog posting
- Blog commenting
- E-mail catch-up
- Cleaning room (enough said)
- Take out trash/recycling
- Make dinner
- Enjoy an evening on my own!
It’s funny how you have to schedule in time for yourself, huh?
In the middle of my computer work, I whipped out Angela‘s Glo Bar.
It was delicious! Peanut butter and coconut go so well together.
It was already time for dinner by the time I got my housework done. I couldn’t decide what I wanted, so I combined a few things that I had.
I made lettuce wraps with brown rice, black beans, tomato, mango, lime, Daisy Brand cottage cheese, and cilantro.
I doused it in hot sauce, then mixed it all up and made a big mess.
Dessert was equally awesome: a healthy brownie sundae!
I somehow managed to get my hands on one of Amie‘s raw agave brownies at the Summit, and ate it on top of a huge bowl of raspberries. I added a few dollops of nonfat plain yogurt and a drizzle of agave, and voila! A deliciously perfect sundae.
It was a great day. I love when I have time to get done the things that have been nagging at me for days!
Have a great Wednesday! Enter K’s cookbook givewaway, and your day will get even better 🙂
