Sorry I missed the evening post! I spent the night trying to get my mother’s 2001 lap top up-to-date. She had skipped 37 Windows updates!
We took a break from computer repair to make this lovely dinner:
We made Nasoya baked tofu, squash, carrots, and brown rice. I had a side of watermelon and about 1/4 a banana.
For the baked tofu, we mixed up a lovely marinade of:
- Equal parts mustard and soy sauce
- A dash of extra virgin olive oil
- Generous amount of honey
- Sesame seeds
And baked the tofu for about 45 minutes at 350. Yum!
This dinner is timely because Nasoya is actually my Boston Experience Sponsor for the Healthy Living Summit. That means Nasoya is sponsoring some of my fun activities, which I think is pretty neat because I love Nasoya tofu! Anytime you’ve seen tofu on the blog, it’s been Nasoya. I like the Cubed Extra Firm Tofu the most — it’s so easy to make tofu when you don’t have to cube it!
For dessert, I had a slice of Key Lime Pie (with the top cut off, I just wanted the crust) and some Pineapple Coconut ice cream.
This morning, I woke up around 7:00 AM and was happy to discover my tummy troubles were mostly gone. I’ve never had an "episode" (as I’ve started to call them) last more than a few hours, so an episode that lasted 30 long hours on my vacation was pretty unpleasant. I’m making an appointment for a full medical work-up when I get back home. I’ve looked into so many conditions online (colitis, Chron’s, IBS, gluten allergy, etc etc etc) and truthfully, my symptoms don’t match any of those conditions. I probably have Ebola or something.
I had 1/2 a slice of toast with almond butter before my run:
And then I set off on a run through the countryside!
Unfortunately, I encountered a big, angry dog on my run. Tennessee doesn’t exactly have "leash laws" (or if they do, no one enforces it) and most homes in the countryside have a dog sitting on the porch. This 100-pound pooch wanted to eat my face! I had to slowlllly walk backwards for about 1/4 mile to get away from him. Ahh!
Here are my stats:
- Duration: 34 minutes
- Distance: 3.3 miles (approx?)
I came home and made a lovely breakfast:
A bowl of Oikos yogurt, blueberries, and 1/2 a banana:
And egg in toast:
Off to spend the last day in Tennessee with mom!
I leave for Boston in two days!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOO EXCITED!
