I felt so tough and strong yesterday after running 9+ miles in some pretty frigid weather. But I think my hubris got the best of me because this morning I woke up feeling completely congested and tired. I was out of bed at 8 a.m. and started to get ready to meet a bunch of NYC bloggers for a fun run in Central Park. After about 5 minutes of movement, I decided the wisest decision would be to go back to bed and catch up on some much-needed to rest to ward off the looming cold. I sadly sent the girls my apology email and crawled back into bed.
I am feeling much better at this point, so hopefully I made a good decision. But I’m still sad that I missed the run. Hope it went well!
Now, to finish up yesterday’s eats and day/night. After my early-morning run with Katherine I had another mini-breakfast.
I was pretty busy doing laundry and some cleaning – meanwhile Murphy spent much of Saturday doing this:
I had a light lunch of veggies with some organic roasted garlic hummus that was delicious.
My afternoon was spent writing out a few of these:
And then dinner was couscous with apple, walnut, grape tomatoes and diced cheddar cheese. It was filling, simple and tasty.
And for dessert I finally made some homemade cranberry sauce (in the microwave) using Julie’s recipe from last week. It was tart and sweet and perfecto!
After dinner I hesitantly selected “Food, Inc.” from our online Netflix queue. The Hubby insisted I watch it when he is not around, so this seemed like the perfect time. I say “hesitantly” because I was expecting to be overwhelmed with slaughterhouse and chicken-farm imagery and those are things I absolutely hate seeing – although I know it goes on. I was really very surprised by the variety of food areas into which Food, Inc. delved. It was by no means all about meat – the documentary touched on a variety of food topics. I really enjoyed it and was swayed even further by the idea of buying cage-free meat and dairy items, and of course, organic products.
I’m still holding out hope that Hubby will decide to watch it at some point. He is a pretty healthy guy and I think it would definitely benefit him to know exactly where all his food is coming from.
Have you seen Food, Inc. – did it change how you eat or even just view your food?
Anyway – that’s all for today. Time to finish up some baking and cleaning, and then rest and recover. Have a good Sunday night.
