I always have the hardest time opening up posts. I always feel like it’s super awkward. So if you ever start reading a post and it sounds awkward, bear with me and keep reading.
After my long drive back to school yesterday, I was exhausted. 9 hours on the road is no fun. Since I was tired, I was in bed at 8pm, asleep by 8:30pm. Yes I am a grandma. I set my alarm for 5:30am so I could get a full 9 hours of sleep. I actually woke up at 5:20am feeling amazing! I love going to bed early 🙂
After waking up, I headed to the gym and busted out a quick arm workout.
Then I came back to my dorm, and had a pre-run snack: Udi’s bread topped with walnut butter and pumpkin butter. Oh my. SO good. I’ll talk more about the walnut butter tomorrow 🙂
After finishing that, I headed out on a run. That’s right, an actual run outside. I haven’t run outside in over a month. One month! I promised myself that if my back or hamstring started to hurt, I would stop and turn back. But I am happy to say that they felt good! I wish I could say that my body really liked the month off and I just glided across the pavement like nobody’s business but that wasn’t the case. It was tough! But I got through it.
Greek yogurt, chocolate Amazing Grass, peanut flour, ground flax seeds, Bob’s Red Mill granola, and a banana.
I had to run a few errands afterwards. And look what I saw at Walgreens…a rooster! That was very exciting. And yes. I’m easily amused.
Salad with carrots, kidney beans, black olives, cherry tomatoes, Trader Joes hummus salad dressing, walnuts, and brown rice.
If you haven’t had the hummus salad dressing yet from Trader Joes yet, go get it now!
Somehow I forgot my phone in my dorm when I went to the library. So the orange went unpictured. Sad day.
Salad with carrots, kidney beans, black olives, corn, and salsa. Cauliflower. Roasted potatoes with BBQ sauce.
I got this salsa from Trader Joes last time I was there and I really like it! It’s spicy but in you good way. Plus I’m a sucker for anything with chipotles.
Are you a late night person or early riser?
What’s your favorite salad dressing?
