It was BRUTAL outside!!! I did it though and feel pretty proud of myself because it would have been so much easier to just stop, walk and call it quits. The temperature was 80 and I was seriously Rocky Balboa running in the grass with my compression socks, ipod, hat and full camel bak. Bringing that was the best decision of my life, pretty much because by the time I was home, it was empty! I actually ended up splashing the water all over my face by the end and that was the only thing that kept me going. Overall, it was a good training run and the last run outside before my race on Sunday. Here are the stats:
Distance: 3.1 miles
Average heart rate: 185
Max heart rate: 196
When I got home I drank a quick glass of coconut water (where would I be without this stuff…seriously) and attacked a mango
And I caught Dexter attacking some brussels sprouts! That crazy cat
Not long after, it was dinner time!! I just love eating dinner at 4 in the afternoon. In my pajamas. Haha 🙂 I started off with a huge salad of organic greens, grape tomatoes and raw broccoli with 2 big creamy spoonfuls of Sabra’s Roasted Garlic Hummus—
And then heated up this little beauty!
I scraped off the rice portion and instead heated up another Rudi’s 7 grain + flax wrap to eat along with the channa masala and paneer because I was seriously craving another one after lunch! These wraps are awesome…especially when warm…so nice and chewy and BIG!
Yum! I love Indian food (seriously missing my favorite place in Orlando) and this did not disappoint. I have to say though, I did prefer the Palek Paneer just because I personally prefer creamy spinach over peas. However, this meal was delicious and the spice cannot be beat. I thought my favorite part of the meal would be the actual paneer but the channa masala was SO GOOD! I wanted more!! This meal packed in a whole lot of taste for 320 calories, 8 grams of fat and 11 grams of protein. Thanks, Amy’s!
Of course my sweet tooth kicked in right on schedule and luckily I still had some of VeggieGirl’s vegan chocolate chip almond fig blondies in the freezer! 30 seconds in the micro later and here’s what you get—
Now that’s a perfect ending!
I’m all set to start my new book tonight. I can’t wait!
