Its been a rainy day in Tampa and the sort of day you just want to wear your freshman year sweatpants and watch chick flicks. I actually did not do that but it does sound nice! 😉 Truth be told, I’ve had a busy day! This morning I learned the ropes at the yoga studio…I think I’m really going to like my little “job”. Free yoga is the best kind of yoga in my book! I worked a couple hours today, checking students in and picking up around the studio. I was feeling snacky so I had this bar from my purse!
For some reason I only got the blueberry fruitition bars from the Healthy Living Summit last month! I love these and will be very interested to see how the other flavors match up!
When I got home I made lunch—a sunshine burger with a light laughing cow cheese on Ezekiel bread with more HUGE grapes!!
Other activities included my mom’s first trip to Costco, which was fun. I stocked up on produce and got a ton of delicious pears and the cutest little mini brie cheeses! I could wander for hours in the place…I swear….
And then…..I ran! I know…..I know……….BUT, I got these new heel cushions and band-aid brand blister pads (no more moleskin!!) and I wanted to try them out. Well, I was fine for the first 2 miles and then I sort of had a difficult time. The good news is that my left foot, which has been giving me the most blister problems, actually felt okay. My right foot was another story. All in all, I got a 2.8 mile run in the rain and was thankful for that at least. I see my doctor again tomorrow and maybe he can help me a little more with the blister issue….bahhh
Post-run vanilla chobani + udi’s granola!
Dinner was some shrimp I sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, diced tomatoes, oregano and feta (YUM!!!) with a baked sweet potato and a big salad:
This is seriously my favorite fast dinner. The whole thing took me under 15 minutes to make and was healthy, tasty and filling! Just remember: feta makes it BETTA! (I’m a huge dork)
However, my sweet tooth was on fire tonight………..I needed a cookie asap!
Holy moly…….these are vegan oatmeal cookies with 72% dark chocolate chips (from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan) and they totally rocked my socks off. I rationalized my cookie baking spree by telling myself I would have one (or two) then bring the rest to bible study tomorrow night but….they are just so good! I probably ate two if you count all the dough I consumed while baking. These were chewy and perfect. Craving satisfied!
Let’s all keep Bobbi and her husband in our prayers tonight as they are right in the line of fire (no pun intended!) in Southern California. I just was watching the news and it looks so scary over there.
You can’t even see my bed with all the clean laundry thrown all over it…time to fold, fold, fold!
