Good afternoon! The Husband and I went on an excellent run this morning. He starts off slow, but he ends up being SO fast! He was bookinâ€™ it by the end, and I struggled to keep up. My legs still feel a little tight from Sundayâ€™s 20 miler.
Here are our statistics:
- Distance: 3.0 miles
- Duration; 28:01
- Mile 1: 9:34
- Mile 2: 9:26
- Mile 3: 9:00 (fastest pace: 6:15!)
Then I made a yummy lunch. Beans, beans â€“ theyâ€™re good for your heart!
I just love Vegetarian Baked Beans (from the can!). So delicious. Reminds me of summertime. I went a little overboard on my portion, but I took one for the team and ate it all.
Plus, a hummus and sprouts sammie on an Arnold Sandwich Thin.
And a Clementine:
Chocolate orange for dessert!
Last night, I called my credit card company and politely asked for a lower interest rate. And guess what? They GAVE me a lower rate without a fight! If youâ€™re carrying a balance on your credit cards, definitely give your company a call and ask for a reduced rate. You may be surprised.
Also, I finally cashed in my â€œRewards Pointsâ€ on my credit card. I had accumulated more than 20,000 points!
I was tempted to use my points to get a Target gift card, but then I realized I donâ€™t need more clothes â€“ I need money for necessities! I cashed in my 20,000 points for $200 in gas station gift cards â€“ cha-ching!
Considering that we spent more than $400 last month on gas and tolls, this â€œfree moneyâ€ will go to good use!
