Thanks for everyone’s supportive comments this morning regarding the baaad leg! I did some thinking today (and I’ve been extremely bummed because of it), and I think I’m going to go ahead and get an MRI this week. The Doctor I saw told me to call back if I felt it was getting worse or the pain was continuing past the first 10 minutes of my run….so I think I would be rather safe than sorry. Believe me, I’m bummed. But I’m really trying my hardest to stay positive and think that everything happens for a reason. Hopefully I will get good results from the Doctor!
As for today—we ended up going out on the boat all day and Ryan did some surfing and did some sun bathing :). I snacked on a Chobani before leaving the house:
And then for lunch, we stopped at this little Greek place, Louis Pappas, in St.Pete and I got the most amazing lunch ever! It was a roasted vegetable “sandwich” (aka a hot, chewy pita bread–I requested no butter) with feta cheese in it. The veggies included artichokes, spinach, caramelized onions, portabello mushrooms, zucchini and more. It was to die for. It came with a side “cafe” salad. SO good!
I promise it was better than it looked!
And then later on the boat I snacked on a chocolate peanut butter Pure Protein bar but the waves were crazy and I couldn’t get my camera in time (or without it getting soaked!)!
Tonight we brought a bottle of Pinot Noir over to my parent’s house for dinner. I picked out this—it’s Angeline from the Russian River Valley. It went perfectly with our shrimp scampi dinner!
This was a very light body Pinot Noir with hints of raspberry and blackberry (don’t I sound like a wine geek?!) I would definitely buy this again though. I loved how light it was!
Right when we arrived I had a glass of Rose though while I helped my mom prepare dinner and the boys talked football…
And then for dinner we started with these Greek salad kabobs my mom made. SO yummy!
They included red onion, fresh buffalo mozzerella, kalamata olives, tomato and basil. My favorite combo 🙂
And then we had Engagement Scampi for dinner!
I use the same recipe as my mom but whenever she make it it’s about 500 times better than when I make it. How does that work?!! I cleaned my plate tonight!!! =)
And then she made parfaits with Ciao Bella Coconut Sorbet and organic blackberries:
We are still at my parent’s house watching the OSU/USC game. We are HUGE Ohio State fans and have the big red flag waving outside of our house right now but it’s not looking up at halftime so who knows...Unfortunately I have a bad headache (which I attribute to not drinking enough water today in the sun and being stressed out about my leg) and Ryan thinks I’ve been moody all day.
Cranky girl. I want Ohio State to score. I promise to be nicer tomorrow! 😉
Have a great night y’all, see ya in the morning!
