Good morning all – we made it past Monday. Mine was a busy Monday – how about yours?
I started the day off with a lighter breakfast – whole wheat English muffin with cinnamon raisin PB and grape jelly.
My morning sort of flew by. For lunch, I had triscuits with laughing cow cheese and some carrots and grape tomatoes.
I’m loving the grape tomatoes right now, and the latest Cooking Light magazine has a bunch of great grape tomato recipes that I want to try.
Then my afternoon snack was Chobani with granola.
I ended up staying a little bit later at work than I expected and it was soo hot out after work, that I gave myself the night off from running. Plus, after my tough race day on Sunday, I think I needed the rest.
I came home and threw together a quick salad for dinner.
Field greens with apple, walnuts, cheddar cheese, grape tomatoes and beets with Sesame Ginger dressing. Yum!!
After dinner, I happily finished up some dessert that Hubby made on Sunday night.
A piece of pistachio pudding pie. I was iffy about the pistachio, but I actually really liked it. Thanks Hubs!
The rest of our night was low-key, we finished up some laundry and then I’ll confess that I watched The Bachelorette. There was nothing else on. Really. And sometimes it’s just funny to watch the crazies on there. 🙂
What is your guilty pleasure summer t.v. show? I’ve been watching The Bachelorette and So You Think You Can Dance. 🙂
I’m going to attempt a run tonight after work. I’d like for the predicted rain to hold off and for the temps to drop a little, but I’m not sure that is going to happen. I’m running the Wall Street American Heart Association 3-Mile Run on Thursday night, so I’d really like to get a run in today as well. This is me forcing myself to get back on track.
I have to say that after reading Gracie’s comment on my blog post yesterday, I need to be thankful for the tolerable heat we have in NY. It’s nowhere near as bad as down south and I need to remember that, and quit being such a baby and toughen up!
