If you want to come to the Healthy Living Summit but did not get one of the 125 original tickets, you will have a chance to bid on ONE GOLDEN TICKET this Wednesday.   The Golden Ticket will be given away in a ‘silent auction’ style process, and the highest bidder will make a charitable contribution to my Team in Training efforts in exchange for 1 ticket to the Summit. 


More details to come!  The auction will happen on WEDNESDAY.


Work today was crazy! Mid-afternoon snack included:  a bowl of cereal!


And, as I walked out the door to my night shift, I slammed this delicious smoothie:


My smoothie contained:



I love the simple and all-natural ingredient list on the ImmunPlex protein powder.  Soooo much better than those long lists on other protein powders!


On the way to work, I stopped at Starbucks and grabbed a hot tea.  I left an Operation Beautiful note in the bathroom:


🙂 Makes me happy every time!


Annnnnd after work, I stopped at the grocery store to stock up on beer for our 4th of July party.  I’m having four bloggers + their men + their dogs over for the party!  I’m very excited to host a big get together.


Dinner was quick and easy:


I made cheese ravioli from one of those frozen packs, but it was whole wheat and tasted a lot nicer than the usual kind!  Plus a salad side.


THANK YOU to Heather for donating to my Team in Training efforts! Wooo hoo!


I’m going to do a back-to-back run and bike workout tomorrow, which I’m looking forward to.  And stay tuned for a very fun strength training challenge, presented by Kath and yours truly!


Good night!
