Hello there boys and girls, and happy Friday! How are you today? I’m just fine, although I knocked myself a little out of whack when I overslept, and my schedule is a little funky! Oh well, no matter.
Yesterday I woke up at a normal time, and made a normal bowl of fruity oatmeal.
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1/2 cup water
- TJ’s Mangolicious blend
- 1 peach
- 1 scoop of peanut butter
After a little computer work, I accompanied the boy to the diner where he enjoyed a nice egg sandwich. Then I hopped on the train and went to visit my poodle. When I got there, I was greeted by many goodies! I found the Zevia sodas (and cute T-shirt) I won from a contest Missy hosted…
POM Wonderful‘s new Kiwi and Nectarine flavored pomegranate juice…
A variety of Greek yogurts from Chobani…
Pretty good mail day, dontcha think?! 😉
I incorporated both new items and tasty leftovers into a fabulous lunch, starting with Daddy-o’s spicy corn chowder…
Gliding Calm tofu with brown rice, mango chutney & peanut sauce…
Low-Fat Pineapple Chobani, which I LOVED (review to follow)…
…. And Ginger Ale Zevia. Full review to come as well, but I did not like this at all.
A little later, snacked on an apple to hold me over on a mid-distance run.
I tried to warm up slowly, run 3 fast miles, and cool down with one more mile. It was hard to pace myself without knowing for sure how fast I was going. When I got home, I was pretty pleased with my statistics; seems like I did pace myself pretty well.
Total distance: 4.54 miles
Total time: 43:41
Maximum heart rate: 181 (91%)
Average heart rate: 166 (84%)
Calories burned: 455
I finished up a baggie of baby carrots while packing up and getting ready… these are the perfect quick snack, except when you have bad allergies. Sneezing while chomping on carrots makes for a HUGE mess.
After dinner, we dug into Liz‘s brownies while we watched Grey’s Anatomy and Project Runway.
There were a lot of flavors, and I wanted to taste them all…
These were so freaking good. The hit of the night seemed to be Cookies & Cream… it tasted just like the middle of an Oreo! I can’t wait to dig into the rest of them. Holy yum, Liz!
I stayed up kind of late, and ended up eating another giant apple before bed.
Off to go meet some lovelies for dinner! What are you up to this weekend? I have my 10K on Sunday, but that’s about it! Have a great night 🙂
