Whew! I finished my article before my deadline. I think itâ€™s pretty good. Starting an article always seems so daunting, but I just keep writing and writing and then suddenly â€“ WHAM – itâ€™s done! Same with the book. 🙂 Writing is funny that way.
I went for a lovely 18.0 mile bike ride this evening with Megan and her friend that is a boy, Mark. It took me about 1:20.
I was suppose to do 25.0 miles, but the sun started to set and I hate riding in the dark, even though I have a light.
Pre-ride fuel was a big Green Monster:
SUPER thick! I had about 3 cups of spinach, 1 cup almond milk, and 1 banana.
And a slice of whole wheat toast with almond butter and sunflower seeds:
For dinner, I made an excellent stir-fry. The Husband actually inspired this idea! On his way out the door, he yelled, â€œYou should make a veggie stir-fry with honey tonight!â€ So I did.
My stir-fry contained:
- 1/3 block pre-cubed extra firm tofu
- Baby corn
- Soy sauce
- Ginger sauce (a mix)
- Dash olive oil
I cooked all the ingredients together on low on the stovetop in a wok for about 30 minutes. Served along with brown rice, it was great!
Well friends, Iâ€™m off to bed. I am meeting Kelly and Sara for a long, long trail run in the morning. Weâ€™re aiming for 13 miles I think? To be honest, Iâ€™m not exactly thrilled, but Iâ€™m trying to get pumped.
And thanks for all the advice about opening my coconut! Iâ€™ll let you know how it turns out!
PS â€“ Angela arrives tomorrow!!! Eck!!! 🙂
