When I wake up tomorrow, it will be just THREE DAYS until my second marathon! Soooo excited. And sooo nervous. 🙂 🙂
Today was a typical Tuesday – lots of writing, e-mailing, secretary-ing at the clinic, and a little volunteering with Girls on the Run.
Ever since I read about the 200 Texas high schoolers forgoing make-up at school in honor of Operation Beautiful, I’ve been thinking a lot about make-up. Now, I am NOT saying there is anything inherently wrong with make-up, but I do feel compelled to wear it every day, especially when I go out in public. I appreciate the way those girls have made me think about make-up. I feel like I’m not “finished” without it, which is so silly because I’m fine just the way I am! So I’ve decided to skip make-up when I coach at Girls on the Run. It’s kind of weird for me, but I want those girls (who are 8 – 10 years old) to know that’s its OK not to wear make-up. Under eye circles, pimples, blemishes, and all!
Lunch was a hummus sandwich with Baked Apple:
Pre-Girls on the Run snack:
Post-coaching snack of olives (I ate about half):
And dinner featured another Vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe! (Other recipes include Lean, Green Casserole Machine and Baked Apples.)
This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes! It’s not vegan, but it’s awesome and will definitely be making an appearance at our table this year.
- 1.5 cups cornbread mix (if you want it to be vegetarian, do NOT use the blue box of Jif, which contains animal fat, just an FYI)
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can creamed corn
- 8 oz. sour cream
- Pre-heat oven to 375.
- Grease a casserole dish (if you use a 13 X 9 dish, baking time will be shorter than a 8 x 8 dish).
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Pour into casserole dish and bake for 35 to 50 minutes or until center sets.
For dinner, we had a piece of corn casserole, some homemade pizza with green and red pepper and mushrooms, and roasted broccoli.
Hanging out with my in-laws and my Dad! We’re having a big get-together tonight.
I like the “make-up free” movement! Not only are you being your true self, but it saves a lot of time in the morning!
And what a great idea to try Thanksgiving recipes out before the holiday. Manybe I can convince my family to let me make a few new recipes if they know beforehand they taste good!! They’re tough critics!!
