I know I’ve said this in every post today, but I just wish yall were here with me because the weather today was absolutely gooooorgeous! Ah, I just LOVE it! Anyways, back to the food!
This afternoon I made a snackie bowl of 1/2 cup whipped cottage cheese, 1/2 cup graham “bumpers” (sort of like a healthy golden graham? I like golden grahams better still…) and a spoonful of peanut butter.
I ate it while I worked on a bible study that Erica and I are doing together! Oh, I just love bloggy online friends! 🙂 Makes me smile.
About two hours later, I geared up and set out on my run. And run I did. It was fantastic! I did my favorite loop where I park my car at my old elementary school and run down the main “strip” next to the ocean. It felt so nice and cool because of the ocean breeze yet there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. My shin bothered me for about the first mile or so and then I didn’t even notice it. I did 5 miles in about 50 minutes. Yay!
When I got home I stretched, ICED, and refueled fast! Dinner was sort of random but aren’t all my meals kind of random right now with my interesting situation? I can’t wait to finally be home and cook gourmet meals again..and be able to cook for two! 😉 Tonight I had 1 cup plain, nonfat yogurt, 2 organic turkey hotdogs with ketchup, a red bell pepper, some melon and strawberries and a toasted ezekiel muffin with a piece of reduced fat provolone.
Not even 1 hour later, I was beside myself famished again…..I guess my dinner needed some more “umph” to it. It always seems like when I increase my mileage to anything over 3 1/2 miles, my appetite is instantly ramped up! Not that I’m complaining, since I’m burning tons of calories and love to eat but I hate feeling hungry. I raided the kitchen….was going to to go for the pumpkin bread, but then I decided I would rather have something hot and creamy. So, I made a packet of HempPlus Oatmeal (Nature’s Path) and added chocolate chips for a little sweetness!
Its a safe bet to say I’ll have another snack before bed tonight. I’m STILL hungry right now! I think I will go make a cup of tea, fold some laundry and see how I feel in half an hour when my tummy has settled a little bit. I hate and absolutely refuse to go to bed hungry so I might be eating some late night cereal! Haha
Tomorrow is pack to work! No wedding cakes to do but we have a very busy week ahead of us with over 800 people in banquets and club functions. I’m doin’ it all though with a smile on my face because I know after that horrendous deep clean on Friday afternoon, I am jumping in my car and headed HOME!!!!!!!
