The times are a bit inaccurate for miles 2-4 because we paused a few times. I ran with my old high school team! They’re speedy! After the run with the team, I had a quick smoothie at home and headed off to the gym. I did a mile warm-up there (I wanted to do 6 miles today), arms weights, ab work, mile cool-down (both were about 8:00) and finished with some hip strengthening. I was ready for lunch when I got home!
I started with a sandwich on Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat bread with big slathers of Vanilla Almond Butter and banana slices:
Then I made a salad. I have a bad habit of buying salad lettuce at the store thinking *this will be good!* and forget to make salads and end up having to eat not-as-fresh lettuce. But I was good this week and finished the bag in two days! I topped it off with some onion slices and Daisy cottage cheese. Salads are really good with cottage cheese, it adds creaminess and protein that dressing can’t do. And yes, I got the idea from a Daisy commercial :) And on the side I had snap peas:
Anyway, finally I had some leftover sauteed zucchini and grilled corn that we had with dinner on Monday. All I did was heat garlic in a pan, add sliced zucchini, sprinkled some paprika, chili powder, black pepper, and salt, and then added some shaved grilled corn on the cob.
I can’t pick a favorite dish from these three. But I will tell you I finished my veggies first so I can enjoy the yummy sandwich last. During my feast, I grabbed a cup of coffee and almost dropped the cup! Luckily I just spilled some coffee and didn’t break the mug, it would’ve been a shame to break this kitty mug
*just a side note: I have a bowl of oatmeal and cup of coffee about 1 hour before I run, but since I always have the same breakfast, I neglect to photograph it, but I will try to soon!*
