Hello my friends. I hope that you had a great Saturday. I have been a busy bee as usual and now I am finally ready to relax and get ready to RACE.
Here is a quick recap for you – this girl wants to get to bed.
This morning I did not run even though I wanted to. Instead I used my Water Rower and dumbbells to get the blood pumping. I really need some sort of stimulating exercise in the morning or I feel like a slug and get a headache.
Breakfast was 1/2 cup oat bran, a banana, strawberries and a 4oz container of Stonyfield Organic Strawberry yogurt.
We took D to karate and afterwards headed to Border’s to get him his next Naruto book. I ate this bar as a snack.
Lunch was the famous English muffin, 1 slice of roasted turkey, swiss cheese and red pepper sandwich.
1/2 a cup Greek yogurt, shredded zucchini, a few tablespoons TJ’s High Fiber Twigs, cinnamon and a drizzle of agave.
Then I had a Z Bar.
Yup, this went down too. These things were sooooooo good. It the package there are 3 cups about the size of a quarter. The caramel cups are way better than the PB cups that I had last week. I will definitely be searching out another package of these guys next time I am at the store.
I did laundry, dishes and cleaned which ended up taking me over an hour. Then we went to my Nana’s house for a little family gathering. I spent the entire time outside goofing around with my favorite kiddos. We played tag and fed the chickens. I packed a Goji Bar for a snack.
Dinner tonight was nothing fancy. I stuffed a Flat-Out wrap with baby lettuce that was drizzled with a little Maple Grove Farms dressing.
With the wrap I had a mini frittata. I started by cooking chopped summer squash in small pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Once the squash was cooked I added 1 egg and 2 egg whites that I lightly whipped with dried basil, cilantro, salt and pepper. I let the eggs set up before popping the pan under the broiler to finish cooking..
I also had 1/2 a cup cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 a cup pumpkin and cinnamon.
Now to the good stuff. I took this – my entire organic loot.
And made this glorious sundae. Mommy had some yumminess.
After I had a little (ok a lot) of sugar flowing through my body, my fur kid and I went on a 4 mile walk. It was so nice out tonight and Otto really enjoyed getting outside. The poor guy has been stuck in the house ALL winter. He gets cold so easily – even with a coat on – so he can’t take walks when it is frosty.
Well my belly is feeling AWSOME today and I think it is because I have not had any soy protein at all today. I really am starting to think that me and soy will never get along. As much as I love my Kashi, Luna and Clif bars, I don’t think they agree with my tummy. I am going to avoid it for a while and see how things turn out. I guess that I will have to be on the lookout for more soy free bars. I know I can count on Larabars so I guess I should go stock up. The Nature’s Promise bars are a safe choice too. The next time I go to Whole Foods I am going to hit up the bar isle and do some label reading. I will just have to make a point to go alone – D hates when I take too long in the grocery store.
So I am getting really excited and nervous for my 10k tomorrow. I am leaving early because the race is actually about 45 minutes away from my house. It starts at 11 which is way later than I am used to running. I hope that I am able to fuel myself properly before hand. I will be sticking to safe foods tomorrow morning. I will be back tomorrow with a full race recap and hopefully some nice pictures. Charlie will be on camera duty while I run.
Have a great night.
