After the gym, Future Husband pointed out that we should probably “prepare” for the hurricane. We went to the grocery store and bought the following items:

Enough dog food for a week, little candles, extra coffee, a case of Beck’s Dark, and…. (BEST THING EVER!!) Pumpkin Harvest from Blue Moon! This is an amazing seasonal beer that I wait every year for, so I had to buy it when I spotted it in the case.

I also found two new flavors of Larabars – Peanut Butter Cookie and Coconut Cream Pie. I can’t wait to try Coconut! I had half a PB while cooking dinner, and it was pretty delicious!

Tonight’s workout consisted of bicep curls, lunges, tricep pull-down (double and single arm), and double pulley rows. After 30 minutes on the elliptical, we called it a night. I was tired from the 20.25 miles I ran over the weekend and just wasn’t feeling it!

Dinner – Naked Burrito Spinach Salad

This is a really easy two pot dinner. I made brown rice in one pot, and in a wok I combined the following ingredients and cooked on Medium Low for 25 minutes:

  • 6 ounces ground turkey (99% FF)
  • Chopped green pepper
  • Chopped red pepper
  • Chopped red onion
  • 1/2 packet of taco seasoning (pretty high in sodium, but that’s alright every now and then).

After 25 minutes, I added in the following and cooked for another 5 minutes:

  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn

I served it over a bed of spinach and topped with some chopped green onion. This made three portions (2 man-sized and 1 bride-sized). 🙂

I think I’m going to go to bed early and bang out a 5.0 mile run before work. The weather is going to make it difficult to run for a few days, so I better get it in while I can! Sleep tight, everyone!
