Ahh, Thursday night... I am so happy it's finally here! I'm really excited for this weekend, and this week has been so long and rough.
Some people have asked why I only post my meals on the weekends. Basically, during the week I eat the same thing (aside from dinner, at that's always on the food blog). In the morning, I have my oatmeal (this week is the chocolate covered strawberry, but most of the time it's pumpkin spice oats). Then for lunch, I have the same thing pretty much every day.
The yogurt flavor always changes, the fruit changes by season, and the vegetables and hummus (homemade) pretty much stay the same.... it depends a little on what's at the farmer's market. Usually though, it's carrots, tomatoes, cucumber and a bell pepper.
I eat my lunch at my desk while I read. Sometimes magazines, sometimes books.
Right now you can see I'm reading Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner. It's a good read!
So Lou and I had our plans to go run today. He suggested we go run the bridges downtown today, and I said sure! So after work we went downtown, parked at the Jacksonville Landing, and ran. We went over the blue bridge, then ran on the boardwalk by the river, then across the second bridge pictured, then turned around and re-ran both brides. It was a really challenging run, but we kept our pace pretty quick and I feel really good about having to run bridges during the River Run 15! There were a lot of people running downtown, and we even ran into one of Lou's friends who is doing the run.
After the run, on my way home, I stopped at Starbucks to grab a gift card for someone. I decided to grab an iced grande soy latte. It was so delicious. I'm so tired though, clearly the caffeine had no effect on me! For dinner I made a big salad with random veggies and cottage cheese and then I had some parmesan orzo with broccoli. I tried to keep it light since tomorrow is a weigh-in, and because I was eating so late.
I'm so excited, a new episode of The Office is on at 9, then I'm going to read in bed with a big mug of tea and the TENS unit. I hope I'm not sore tomorrow with all the hills/bridges, but I'm feeling good, so I think I'll be ok. As of now, the plans stand to run 9 miles on Saturday morning. I'm just trying to figure out what route I want to take.... hmmmm....
Hope you have a GREAT Friday!
