Good afternoon, bloggies! I hope you put on your creative thinking caps after reading the Athleta Contest details — I’ve received a one entry so far and I can’t wait to see more!
Today has been uneventful yet busy. I’ll have to pull overtime this week, which isn’t exactly my favorite activity. But at least I get paid for it!
You guys know how I work from home? Well, it’s usually a good thing for my concentration, as I don’t have live coworkers to distract me with office gossip or tons of silly meetings to attend. But today, I’m watching my in-laws’ dogs, so I have FOUR dogs in my 2-bedroom apartment. They hate each other so I couldn’t get them to all pose for a picture together! 🙂
Sally and Benny keep freaking out and barking their heads off, which sets Maggie and James off. This is not helping me work!
Around 9:30, I had a Honey Graham Z-Bar from my giant stash… yay!
And I had a small plum and a few dried apricots.
And for lunch…. I tried to make tofu "French fries."
I rubbed pressed extra firm tofu with a marinade of mustard, red wine vinegar, and pepper, and I baked the tofu for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. I was hoping it would taste like French fries when I dipped the tofu into ketchup… but no. Obviously! 🙂
I also had a spinach salad with a plum tomato, cucumber slices, a chopped carrot, and spicy pumpkin seeds.
The salad was delicious!
Leg and Knee Update
So, my knees felt GREAT this morning. I was scared I’d feel super stiff after my 7.0 mile run, but I was only slightly stiff, and the sensation went away quickly. This makes me really happy because I know modifying my training schedule to include more cross-training and less high-impact running is helping!
I’ve got a fun Water Run planned for tonight!
Have a great day! See you for dinner.
