This morning I woke up and decided to do another 3ish (slightly more) mile run. I followed up with 20 minutes of yoga.
I actually slept in until almost 10:30 today… yikes! So by the time I finished the run and yoga, it was time for lunch. I wanted something big and veggieful, so I went for a salad – I sauteed some veggies (eggplant, celery, carrot, and peppers in a little sesame oil; later added rice vinegar and soy sauce) and threw them on top of romaine. For my protein I added turkey bacon – and I had a piece plain on the side too! I love this stuff. It’s from Whole Foods and was on sale this week (2 for $7).
We went to this humongous concert today for the Bridge School Benefit – Niel Young, Cat Power, Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, Smashing Pumpkins, Josh Groban, Norah Jones, and Jack Johnson (in that order)! What I did NOT know was that it was going to last almost 7 hours! Right before we left our friend told us that’s what he’d heard, so I pulled together a giant snack pack filled with wraps, veggies, and fruit for us to have throughout the show (ampitheatre food is awful and expensive, and so not worth it for me). I used my snack pack a lot. We actually walked to and from the concert (2+ miles each way), so this event took up most of our day!
- 3 whole wheat la tortilla factory wraps (unpictured)
- 2 apples
- a bunch of baby carrots
When we finally got home I made dinner – fried rice for Bobby and our friend that came with us, and a nice stirfry (onion, organic chicken-gouda sausage, eggplant, pumpkin, peppers, carrots, cabbage, celery, 1 whole apple, all topped with bacon bits) for me. I also prepped a bunch of raw veggies (red and yellow peppers, carrots) and had them with BBQ sauce (again). The chicken-gouda sausage is really yummy – but I get sick of it because we bought 21 links from Costco at one point! I try to use it every once in a while so that we don’t overdo it 🙂
After dinner was dessert and snacks:
- sliced apple with cinnamon (microwaved) and some vanilla and espresso soy ice cream
- pumpkin with olallieberry jelly
- 2 packets of brothers-all-natural apple crisps!
I have to go to sleep because I need to get up early tomorrow, so this was snappy – Happy Monday! Hope it’s the start of a great week…
