I was driving to the grocery store and caught myself absolutely GRINNING from ear-to-ear. I had such a happy day! Nothing big happened; it was just a fun, relaxing, productive day.
Toaster GF waffles with peanut butter, maple syrup, bananas and strawberries.
After breakfast, I went for a solo stroller run. I don’t even remember the last time I went for a run without the Husband! It’s been a while. And I certainly don’t remember the last time I willingly pushed the jogging stroller (truly, it’s been months). I did about 2.5 miles. It was blazing hot and really challenging but it was fun. I felt great afterwards.
Came home and made a yummy almond butter, banana, and frozen berry smoothie with a big scoop of protein powder. I also had some rice cakes with cheese.
After snack time, it was ERRAND TIME. We are throwing Henry’s birthday party this weekend, so first stop was Party City for decorations. Then, I went to a bunch of different grocery stores to stock up on party food and food for our out-of-town guests that are coming to visit. Maybe this is why I was so happy – I love having visitors!
I got home much later than planned and ended up desperately throwing together a meal while I thought of this Instagram post. I ended up having toast with hard boiled eggs, a big scoop of green lentils, and blueberries. I scarfed it down before plopping Henry in front of Thomas the Tank Engine so I could do a business call. Later, when I had more time, I had a side salad.
I spent Henry’s lunch wrapping up some work projects and cleaning the house. I finally unpacked my suitcase from the Heartbreak Hill 5K and 10K race. I ate these samplers! The Clif Mojo bar was pretty good, but a little too sweet for me. The Chia Bar in coffee flavor was OUT OF THIS WORLD, but I love chia seeds and love coffee, so I may be biased.
It was TACO NIGHT for dinner. My tacos were stuffed with tofu, broccoli, and veggies. Plus a serious load of salsa. And later, I had yet another banana (dude, I love bananas) with peanut butter and a plum.
