Toughening Up!

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!

  1. The heat is definitely bad in Texas right…we are easily hitting 110 with the heat index everyday and the humidity is GROSS! Oh well…I choose to live here right?!

  2. Humidity is crazy! I ran 4.5 this morning and was so red-faced and dripping before 7 a.m. Be careful outside! I guess it’s good practice for running in better temps? Makes you faster or the runs easier maybe? Cleans your pores out for free? Here’s hoping!

  3. Ah, but I’m a big ol’ wimp in cold weather! After reading this post I remembered my utter misery in a “cold” race last year, but then I realized for most of the race it was above freezing even with wind chill. Wimpy!

  4. My gulty TV pleasure this summer is also The Bachelorette…it sucks you in. I’m also looking forward to BostonMed, which starts tomorrow night….all about drama in the ER.
