Before I forget:
HUGE giveaway in the morning!!!!!! Stay tuned, you don’t want to miss this…..trust me!
Now—I hope you all have had a happy healthy afternoon. 🙂 I snacked on a pre-exercise Super Charge Me cookie—-
And then headed upstairs to run on the treadmill since it was storming and I didn’t feel like getting soaking wet in the parking lot. I had a GREAT run!! Total time was 40 minutes—I ran for 20 and walked for 20, all while watching Dr.Oz on Oprah. I don’t want to say everything is perfect now with the orthotics though because I am sooo scared of jinxing myself! All I know is that I’ve run a few times now, am slowly increasing my mileage and have zero pain whatsoever. Now my main priority is to keep on staying healthy while slowly increasing my mileage…..race day is in 4 months and counting! I SO have time…right?! 🙂
My brother was always so amazed at my ability to even run three miles without stopping. The brief times we did get together and go outside for a run he whined the whole time and was baffled how I could possibly have the endurance to run so far! I would run in the grass and John on the sidewalk, shirt off and tanning oil on to “kill two birds with one stone”. He was so proud of me for committing to run a half marathon to support cancer all the way out in San Francisco, and even told his teachers in school how cool he thought that was. So, I’m not only running this race for the thousands of people that can’t run and are in hospital beds with cancer, but I’m also running for my brother. He would like that.
Now before I start getting all teary eyed, let’s bring on the food! I sort of treated myself to the perfect evening.
First of all there was dinner though—
A BIG salad bowl with:
- just about an entire bag of organic greens
- 1/2 cucumber
- cherry tomatoes
- a Sunshine Burger
- almost a serving of Mary’s Gone Crackers (love these!)
- 2 scoops Sabra’s hummus
- hot sauce! obviously 🙂
It was delicious!! Especially when served with the last bit of the French wine from the other night…..
In front of The Sex & The City movie 🙂
If that’s not great I don’t know what is. I rented this and “He’s Just Not That Into You” from Blockbuster this afternoon mainly because I can’t seem to get through a movie without crying and I’m just craving girl power goodness. Tomorrow night I shall watch the latter!
Of course there was the last slice of vegan carrot cake for dessert….sniff sniff 🙁
Pretty much the best dessert EVER. I will be making this again soon. I am seeing vegan carrot cake cupcakes in the very near future! 😉
I am in the process of making Ryan a special dinner! He’s been so stressed out lately that I thought he could use it. I’m making him a cheese quesadilla in a spinach tortilla (the boy actually owns a quesadilla maker) and fish that he caught a few weeks ago and froze. I defrosted the fish (I think its hogfish) and seared it in a bit of extra virgin olive oil with Old Bay seasoning and then drizzled his favorite mojo sauce on top. He’s on his way home now—hopefully he will like it! 🙂
As for me, the movies over and I’m relaxing with a cup of tea. I can’t even tell you how much better I feel today than yesterday….last night at this time I was already getting into bed to read. Thank goodness for ENERGY in the form of greens! 🙂
Thank you all for the e-cookbook recipes!!!! I’ve been working pretty hard on it and so far the book has about 40 pages. Lookin’ good!!! I can’t wait to try some of these recipes myself. If you haven’t already, please send me your recipe + picture (f you have it) to HelpJennaRun@gmail.com so you, too, can be included! The book should be ready for donation purchase early next week after I put the finishing touches on it. Again, the book will “sell” for $10. I’m hoping this fundraiser will be even bigger and better than the last one!
