Afternoon! Sorry I’ve been away so long — its been a wild and crazy Saturday, as usual.
I worked from 8 am to 2:00 PM. I packed my lunch per my usual MO:
The star of my lunch was an AWESOME Kettle Corn Pro Bar. It had REAL chunks of toasted corn in it! It was so salty and sweet. I’m glad I packed a calorie-dense bar (400) plus grapes because what was suppose to be my "lunch" sucked enough so I threw it away after just a few bites:
I made a Hummus + Cucumber Flat Out wrap but it went soggy in my lunch box – eww! I only could stomach two bites before it went in the trash. Luckily, I somehow managed to survive on just the Pro Bar and Grapes.
After work, I came home and went for a RUN! Granted, it was a really short and slow run, but it was a run nevertheless.
I did 2.0 miles in 28 minutes. There was lots of walking because I’m so nervous about my knees. I’ve only ran 5 miles in the last two months or so! I feel fine now — I have definitely learned NOT to push it when running. It’s not that I’ll *never* run again, I just know it needs to be a once-a-week (or less) kind of thing.
After a shower, the Husband and I went to a late lunch/dinner (around 4!).
The Husband had never been to Ethos Vegan Kitchen so we thought we’d give it a try! (By the way, NO MEAT for the Husband for TWO WEEKS and me for ONE MONTH).
He said he LOVED Ethos and couldn’t believe it was vegan food!
We shared a beer (cause we’re cheap) and I got "What’s the Dilly, Philly?" which is a tofu, red pepper, onion, and vegan cheese "Philly cheesesteak."
With a side of pineapple! Yum! It was fun to go to lunch with the Hus:
After Ethos, we drove to a BIKE SHOP! I am TOTALLY peer pressing the Husband into buying a road bike. I want him to ride with me sooo badly and since he’s expressed interest, I’ve been non-stop pushing the idea. It’s a big investment to buy a road bike, so we’re taking the time to look at new and used bikes to find a good deal.
He rode this Fuji Newest 3.0 and liked it a lot. The store is selling it for WAYYY below the suggested retail price (we could not afford this bike otherwise), so we’re going to think about it and he might go pick it up on Monday! I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Guess what is on the agenda for tonight?
Yes… tire changing.
I have actually never changed my tires myself before (I get my Dad to do it), but Kelly (Meghann’s sister) are gong on a 40-miler tomorrow and I need new tires! I think it will be easy to change my tires, but please wish me luck! I’m not very mechanical. 🙂
Have a wonderful afternoon!
sorry about the soggy sammie girl – it sounds like it had so much potential to be good.. i guess cucumbers and hummus are just not meant to be together 🙂
glad you decided to honor your body with your run today girl – i would not want to see you injured any further!
enjoy the rest of your night!
