Well my day just instantly brightened because I got the results from yesterday’s race online and I actually placed FIRST in my age group! 🙂 Totally not expecting that! I guess I shouldn’t have hightailed it out of there so quickly yesterday…they might have given me a trophy or something!!!
Anyways, happy Monday folks! Hows it going? It took me 2.5 hours to fall asleep last night. Meh. Surprisingly though, I wasn’t tired at all at work. I started off with this bar—
Which I LOVED. Seriously, this bar was really really delicious. It had a nutty and chewy texture and was huge! Two thumbs up, Nature’s Path!
I also had a half cup of egg white fluffies
It was a very satisfying early morning snack…great ratio of protein/carbs/fat to keep me going for the first five hours of my workday!
Around 8:00 I broke out breakfast, which was a huge cookie a la Gina!
This bad boy contained 3/4 cup oats, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein, 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp almond butter and 3 tbsp hemp milk. I love how BIG it was!
And for some reason when I got home, all I could think about was almond butter & jelly…..so that’s exactly what I had! On a toasted ezekiel muffin, no doubt. I also had an extremely juicy sliced mango
This lunch made me happy 🙂
I’m off to catch up on emails, attempt to book a hair appointment ,and then and get outside for a bike ride! See you for dinner!

Where do you find your ezekiel eng muffins–I can never seem to find them?!
MoniMarch 16, 2009 at 11:43 am
I may have missed this — where are the egg white fluffies from? Do you make them yourself? If so, how?

I love almond butter and jam on an english muffin, the perfect lunch in my book!
Sarah MMarch 16, 2009 at 12:06 pm
I consider it a success when I don’t finish last in a race, so winning a race is a big deal. Go Jenna!!!

Lisa DMarch 16, 2009 at 1:24 pm
yay for first place!!! and for fluffy egg whites. I just bought cashew butter and if I could I think I would eat that with jelly on toast for all three meals. soooo yummy!
brandiMarch 16, 2009 at 1:25 pm
great job on the race! that’s exciting!
AmandaMarch 16, 2009 at 1:34 pm
This is a bit of a random comment/question…but I was at Greenwise last night and I bought some pre-made crispy baked chicken tenders. Usually the chicken tenders from publix are fried but I was so happy that these specified their “un-friedness”! They were actually really good.. have you had them before? Because I wanted to know the nutritional info for them because I will definitely be buying them again 🙂
jennaMarch 16, 2009 at 1:36 pm
I know what you are talking about but I don’t know the nutritional info for them. Nothing in Greenwise is fried and they actually take a lot of pride in their “oven-fried” chicken tenders! MUCH healthier than the fried version, I can assure you! I’m so happy you enjoyed them!!
Run SaraaahMarch 16, 2009 at 1:37 pm

Congratulations on placing first in your age group! That’s fantastic! 🙂
Oh, and I’ve GOT to try that big breakfasy cookie some time. Looks delish, and it’s so great that it’s actually HEALTHY and can be eaten as breakfast without an excuse! 🙂
MoranMarch 16, 2009 at 2:24 pm

Sarah (lovINmytummy)March 16, 2009 at 2:51 pm
Congratulations! Did your mom place too? I bet you at least got a ribbon or something that they can mail to you…I’d totally check into it!
jennaMarch 16, 2009 at 3:16 pm
She got 1st in her age group too (we laughed because she was the only one in her age group)! lol! =)
DianaMarch 16, 2009 at 3:11 pm
congrats on the run! thats awesome!
p.s. thought your egg whites were ice cream again!
bibixsMarch 16, 2009 at 3:13 pm
hey how do you make egg white fluffies!? they are so pretty!
jennaMarch 16, 2009 at 3:15 pm
All I do is pour egg whites into a microwave-safe cup or mug (sprayed with nonstick spray) and then zap in the micro for 1 minute!
EmilyMarch 16, 2009 at 3:22 pm
Yay! Congrats on your first in the age group finish! 🙂 I’m so glad that you’re shins are feeling better and will keep thinking good thoughts so that it continues!
MegMarch 16, 2009 at 4:29 pm
ooooh that breakfast cookie looks so good! I haven’t made one in awhile…. I think I see one in my future very soon.. with carob chips of course!
gina (fitnessista)March 16, 2009 at 5:42 pm
hey!! there is definitely a raw foods transition (megan has been teaching me a TON about it because she went back to raw vegan a couple of weeks ago) and i’ll have to send you an email about it because, well, it’s a little graphic hahah.
hooray for a delicious bfast cookie!
i broke the ‘meatless in march’ a couple of nights ago 🙁 the shrimpies were beckoning and i couldn’t turn them down! how awesome of the amy’s fairy to keep hooking you up with those goodies!
congrats on deciding to do a longer run, for an excellent cause!
have a wonderful night<3
