Hey there! How was your Tuesday? Mine began in a hurry and ended with ice cream, and now I’m in bed watching Michael Clayton. Ari’s leaving tomorrow to go Vigilante and we’ve all got things to do, so this is going to be a quickie!
Yesterday started off on a good note with a generous portion of Oats In A Jar.
In the mix:
- PB jar w/ about 1 T PB
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 2 dried apricots
- 1 dried fig
- dried cherries
Mighty fine, I tell ya. I should finish jars of nut butter every day!
After breakfast, I hustled over to Starbucsk to get some work done. I sipped on a Grande Skim Misto with a shot of espresso for a few hours…
… and spaced my lunch out over about four hours to maximize my efficiency. Every 100 pages, for example, I could eat another part of my meal. It’s a pretty good trick! I had honeydew…
… samples of marble cake and hazelnut-espresso truffle drink (too sweet for me)…
…mixed greens with fake chicken nuggets…
… rebel carrots…
… and a grapefruit. When I was really young I used to snack throughout the day rather than have square meals, and there’s something to be said for this! It works nicely when I’m trying to be productive, but I think I prefer eating three times a day, plus snacks. Do you eat three meals or snack throughout the day?
Dinner was a really, really big salad. I love these! I eat almost an entire head of romaine or bag of spinach at a time.
In the mix:
- 1 handful spinach
- 4 romaine leaves
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 Gala apple
- 1 TJ’s frozen salmon patty
- dulse flakes
- cilantro-chili vinaigrette
I overdid it on dessert a little bit… I just kept going back for more Edgies! My tum was a little unhappy with me when I went to bed, but I’m pretty sure the brownies were worth it 😉
I thought I was going to wait until tomorrow to share this with you, but today my physical therapist gave me the okay to run. With the exception of the two minutes I ran on the treadmill during my first therapy session, I haven’t really run since I hurt my knee during my 10K race. My therapist only let me run for 15 minutes, but it felt great! I didn’t feel any pain in my knee, and felt proud that I had followed the doctor’s and therapist’s orders to stay off my legs until the time was right. But baby, I’m back!
What made you proud today?
