Wrap it Up!

in All Posts

Yay! I’m ALMOST done with work for the day!  I did four hours of overtime this morning and wrapped up a document for print.  I was super sleepy from waking up at 6:00 AM to go vote, but now the baby is PDFed and ready to go.


Around 9:30, I had the obligatory Z-Bar.


And about 5 – 6 dried apricots.  I love to pull them apart with my teeth and eat the soft center out first. :)  I will probably take four bags of dried apricots with me on my honeymoon to make sure I have something healthy and natural to snack on.


While putting the finishing touches on my document, I had lunch…. which, let me tell you, was AMAZING!


I broiled a WW pita topped with 2 slices of deli chicken meat, veryyy thinly sliced Gala apple, and some extra sharp cheddar cheese.  The apple contrasted so nicely with the meat and cheese.


On the side I had two pickles (I’m addicted!) and the other half of my apple.


Unfortunately, this lunch was lacking in the vegetable department (I don’t think pickles count?)… so I’ll have to make it up at dinner!




Poor Maggie and James seem SO bored lately.  I usually take them to the dog park once a week, but I’ve been slacking on my responsibilities.


After I finished up that document, I drove them to the park and let them run around while I talked to Future Husband on the telly.


Doesn’t Margaret look like a fat cow grazing in the field?


James even played on the equipment a little. 🙂 Well, only because I forced him to.


It’s perfect outside…. a little warm, very windy, and not a cloud in the sky!  Everyone should live in Florida during the winter.


Spontaneous Long Run


Well, I’ve to go "back to work" for a conference call at 2:00, and then I’m officially FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE for the weekend!


Meghann invited me to go on a long run this afternoon (7.0 miles max as part of the Modified Training Program) and I’m really looking forward to it!  I think the Modified Training Program has been great because my knees or my leg aren’t bothering me AT ALL, and it appears that I just needed to take a break of sorts after my Half Marathon. 


I signed up for a 10K next SUNDAY so I’ve very excited to RACE again.  And hopefully, I can be back to 10 or 12 mile long-runs on the weekends within the next few weeks!


See you for dinner with a run recap!


****REMINDER:  Athleta Contest deadline is SUNDAY at 8 PM EST!  You could win $200 worth of workout gear!

    Glad you got your work done! Your lunch looks so good! I have to try it 🙂

    How fun that you got to take your dogs to the park. I know what you mean about feeling guilty when they don't get to go out much. I'm the same. Sometimes life gets so busy & hectic and it's hard to get my puppy out for some good exercise. I'm hoping when he gets a little bigger he can come on my runs with me. It would be impossible now because he is so ADD being a puppy & all! As usual, Maggie & James look so cute. I burst out laughing when you said that Maggie looked like a cow grazing in the field 🙂

    I hope you and Meghann have a great run! I'm jealous, but I need to take a break for the good of my legs. I really want to run, though. Anyway, you enjoy the rest of your day!

    I love pickles. They count as a veggie in my book. I am loving the cheese and apple combo! Mmmmm.
