goooood evening 🙂
Sorry for being MIA but it’s been that kind of day! This morning I snacked on an oikos + kiwi because I was going to have a pretty late lunch
Slammed back some SuperFood for good measure….
Got my hairs done! 😉 You can’t really tell a difference and I was racing around too much today for a blog photo shoot, but I promise pics to come. I was trying to scan in some pictures from my dark days (no pun intended) when, once in high school AND college, I dyed my hair DARK BROWN! I actually am a natural blonde but this was right when “A Walk To Remember” was coming out and I coveted Mandy Moore’s hair. So, dark chestnut brown it was…and super, super loooong. And I used to spiral it by wrapping pieces of it around a curling iron every day. I loved it. I miss it…sometimes….hehe
Lunch wasn’t till 2:00 (!!!) and was really fast and eaten in front of my computer because I was preparing for a conference call.
A HUGE spinach salad with a crumbled Sunshine burger, cucumber, carrot, hummus, hot sauce, Parmesan cheese and a Dr.Kracker (love these things). I drank some unpictured Tazo green tea 🙂
Not to long after….
And then I went on a really HOT run. You know its hot when you have to run in a sports bra and you get sweet tan lines from your ipod arm band. Woot woot! I only ran 2.5 miles because my shin is sore and it literally was a sauna outside…I should have waited until later but I was itching at my desk and left around 4:00. Took some coconut water for the road—
You know, I really love coconut water but actually I PREFER gatorade when I’m running! I never thought I’d say that I prefer the more artificial product but when I’m running and sweating and dying out there, gatorade just tastes the best to me and really helps keep me going. You gotta do what’s right for you! And warm coconut water is just ick.
Dinner was made by mom and inspired from this recipe from our newspaper!
I made homemade sweet potato fries for my sandwich and it was awesome!!!
Sweet potato fries are a snap to make! Just peel and slice up a sweet potato, rub with olive oil, season with sea salt and, if you are a spice lover like myself, cayenne pepper, and then bake at 425 for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
I gulped down glass after glass after glass of water…..still feel a little parched from my run. I was pretty full after I ate but finished it off with 2 pieces of my dark chocolate…and more water. Note to self: next time wake up when the alarm goes off for a cooler run. This is what you get for sleeping in!! 😉
Emails! out of control!!! Must forge on!
