Hows your Humpday going? I have been pretty productive thus far and now need to spend the new couple hours buckled down writing articles and working on BLOG SUMMIT (!!) stuff. Details soon, promise!
This morning I slid in my new orthotics into my Izumi Pearls and hit the gym treadmill for some walking.
No running yet. Doc wants me to slowly get comfortable in these new orthotics by wearing them walking for a few hours every day. After a few days of just wearing them walking and around the house I can slowly start to run again! Woohoo!!!! I actually really like them and they are very comfortable to me. Today I walked for 50 minutes on the treadmill at a brisk pace (3.8). It felt really good to walk that long and stretch my legs. It helped that I was totally immersed in my reading material though!
I’ve been picking up this book off and on since April and I have to say, I am loving it. I’ll wait until I finish to do a complete review, but everything Brendan says makes a lot of sense to me and its fascinating to read. Has anyone else read this book? Any thoughts?
After my workout I stopped at Greenwise because we were completely out of produce! I did a super quick low-key shop to get some basics.
- Ezekiel bread
- organic honey mustard
- organic ketchup (feel so much better buying ketchup w/out HFCS in it!)
- Sunshine burgers (still can’t find the new falaful burgers and its driving me mad)
- decaf green tea with mango, peach and pineapple
- spicy blue corn chips!
- 2 for $5 raspberries
- organic carrots
- organic “dinosaur” kale (more on this in a bit)
- organic beets for juicing
- organic celery
- lemons + limes
- organic spinach…obvi
Can you believe I bought all this stuff, most of it organic, for only $42???!! The best grocery shop yet, to be sure. I was pretty darn proud of myself. Now that Ryan eats more of the same food that I eat (spinach, kale, berries, almond milk, whole wheat bread….) its much easier shopping for two rather than buying all my food and then separately buying the food he likes. I swear I don’t force healthy food down his throat!
I got quite hungry while shopping around and to stop myself from buying everything in sight, I snacked on this bar:
And then when I returned home, after putting everything away and organizing the freezer & fridge (desperately needed it but don’t worry Ryan, I didn’t throw away the beer!), I made lunch. A sunshine burger on Ezekiel bread with honey mustard, ketchup, spinach and pickles with some blue corn chips and a not-so-ripe nectarine on the side
This quote on my tea hit home—
And now lunch/break time is over and I must forge onward! Ryan is working late so I’m going over to my parent’s house for dinner….mom is making her speciality (and my favorite), linguine with clams! Linguine and clams has been my favorite meal since I was about seven years old. I think I was just destined to be a foodie.
Have a great day!
