Ran with gloves & Fast Food

Post #4

RUNS: Monday morning I did my 6 mile run commute home. It was a balmy 41 degrees out and I had to put on a pair of gloves for the first time this fall. Yay! I say this because this is my kind of running weather. My breathing was awesome and my pace was the fastest ever (by 4seconds per mile) on this route. All while feeling easy. Double yay!!

Btw, if you came here today looking for a Blues Cruise race report...you are out of luck. I bagged the race this weekend for no real reason in particular. I really cant sign up for a race at the last minute. Its way to easy to back out. Especially when Rik isnt running it with me and it is forcasted to be raining (which it ended up not doing). ALL of my friends ran but that still didnt get me to the starting line. Instead I slept from 9pm the night before until 1pm the next day! Holy cow, I must have been tired.

EATS: Im kind of proud of myself that my latest breakfast thing is fresh fruit with my oatmeal and almond milk. I used to always need/like dried fruit, probably because it is sweeter. But I am kinda digging this fresh fruit thing. It is way more volume which equals more filling! Here is a diced up plum, rolled oats, and almond milk. I always eat my oats cold.

Nothing new with my lunches though. Veggies & dip. Pita chips & hummus. Fruit. Fig Newtons. And a Luna bar. I havent had Lunas for awhile and I dont know if my tastes have changed or they changed the way they make them but I am not liking them as much as I used to. I think I should stick with the Clif bars instead.
Dinners include fast food over the weekend. Salad bar. This is NOT as much dressing as it looks like in the picture! Im not sure why it looks like so much other then the fact that I put the dressing on and shook it up before I took the picture maybe. Or maybe it is alot of dressing and I am in denial about it?!?!

How about a burrito at California Tortilla. No-meato burrito! I was disappointed that the limited time Caribbean burrito was gone already from the summer menu. No-meato is good but a bit spicy for me without even any sauce on. I think that is why I liked the Caribbean burrito with the mangos, to calm the heat!

Okay, so I actually did cook a meal at home too. I used up the last spaghetti squash that was given to us the other week. While the spaghetti squash was cooking I sauted some mushrooms in a pan. Then added a can of white beans and a jar of marinara sauce to the cooked mushrooms and let them heat together for awhile. Scraped out the squash and added the sauce mix on top. Dont forget to add some nooch on top to compete the meal. So quick and easy its almost like fast food...right?!
