For some reason I got really dressed up this morning and now I’m not quite sure why. Oh well. I guess I’ll go to the grocery store in style later!
Spinning was great this morning…I love the teacher because you can tell she is an uber triathlete and really pushes us. I was dripping sweat all throughout the class and did some abs on the stability ball after as well.
I had to run some errands right after the gym, so I packed a snack to go!
Again, I just LOVE these fruit bars! I think my favorite so far is the strawberry, but the passionfruit was very yummy as well.
Lunch was extra delicious today. For the first time, I added a serving of PB2 to a half cup of 2% Fage to create the ultimate (and healthy!) peanut butter mousse
Oh my goodness, was it ever decadent, rich and dense!!! This was amazing and, in my book, worth buying the whole jar of PB2 just to create this! It tasted exactly like a peanut butter mousse you would get a restaurant but with a whole lot more protein and much healthier. And, I’m not going to lie, I really don’t think I can ever eat Fage 0% again because the 2% is just SO much better and richer!!! That extra little bit of fat really makes all the difference in the world….
With my mousse, I also had one of these bad boys:
I really love these and they are so incredibly tasty, but they don’t fill me up on their own with only 260 calories. However, when you pair it with something like peanut butter mousse (hehe), it becomes an incredibly satisfying meal!
All together with some grapies:
Perfect with some peppermint tea to drink—
Look at the sweet picture my mom gave me last night of my brother and I several years ago—I put it on the new stove so I can look at it every day 🙂 This picture was taken just before his 10th grade homecoming and he looked so cute!
For the rest of the day I am writing and then hopefully later getting my butt to the grocery store to buy ingredients for meals I can actually COOK in my new oven!
On another note: tomorrow starts the day I officially begin my half marathon training!
I got a training schedule from my coach but I am going to modify it a bit because I can only run 3x a week (or else my shins start acting up!) and I’m going to do my short runs on the treadmill (gag, I know) and save my weekly long runs for outside. That way I’m not pounding the pavement too much. I can’t wait to get back into running and hope my endurance meets me where I want to be!
