Good morning, lovepies. I had a reeeeeeally difficult time waking up this morning, so I’m going to forgo my my morning run and hope that I can squeeze in a little treadmill action during my lunch hour.
Thanks for all of your enthusiastic responses to my grandmother’s post about her time in culinary France… I’m sure it will make her very happy.
Yesterday I rolled out of bed, two hours later than planned, and laced up for a run. Before I left, I had coffee and 1/2 banana with almond butter.
Towards the end of my run, I started getting really painful stitches in my side. I remember reading an article in Runner’s World that said that when this happens, you should push on the spot and bend in its direction. I ended up running with my fingers pressed into my side, and it helped, but there has to be a better way! How do you run through stitches?
Total time: 44:52 minutes
Total distance: 4.5 miles
When I came back, I had an awesome breakfast, centered around two key ingredients:
Homemade raw almond walnut milk:
Apple Berry Vitatop:
I spent the rest of the morning working at home, then scrambled together a quick lunch.
The night before, I decided to continue my adventures in mashed tofu and made a curried tofu salad. Using a fork, I mashed 1/2 block of pressed firm tofu. I added chopped onion, curry powder, freshly ground ginger, cumin, and rice wine vinegar. For my lunch, I plopped a big glob of the curry onto a bed of arugula with sprouts, an apple, and a slice of Ezekiel bread, and drizzled it all with Annie’s Light Gingerly Vinaigrette.
Although I’d packed snacks for work, I was still feeling noshy from the run so I popped into a deli and picked up a cup of Stonyfield Organic Nonfat Chocolate Underground yogurt.
At work, I drank a glass of Wild Berry Greens Plus and snacked on an Apricot Clif bar.
I’ve decided that using the entire packet in one serving is entirely too much. It’s very sweet, so I’d recommend reducing the serving size to about 1/4 of the packet.
After my shift at the restaurant, I had a mixed green salad with apples, tomatoes, oranges, and walnuts.
Work itself was a little unpleasant, but hopefully I’ll be able to figure something else out soon.
On my walk to the subway, I picked up a blurry fruit cup.
Well, I’ve actually just come home early from work… I think I’ve caught some kind of bug. Hopefully it’s something that’ll be cured by sleep, which is what I plan to do for the rest of the day. Hope your Tuesday is going well!
