Oh, I am so happy! I am officially back on vacation for New Yearâ€™s Eve. We worked for about 7 hours in the clinic today, and now we are done! So excited for some more time off. Let the party begin!
But first â€“ we had to get through the grind. 🙁
I had pumpkin oats topped with pumpkin seeds for breakfast:
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- Toppings: pumpkin seeds, brown sugar
Then, I parked my butt in the secretary chair for the rest of the day. While working, I ate a salad I brought from home:
In the mix:
- Roasted brussel sprouts
Whole picture: 🙂
Other office snacks included a banana and yogurt:
Once office duties were finished, I bolted out of work, drove home to let out the dogs, discovered an epic poop explosion in Jamesâ€™ crate, cleaned it up (ew), and met with Nicole for a long run. I originally thought we were going to do 3.0, but she suggested we shoot for 5.0 miles. I was a little nervous since my knee hasnâ€™t been doing great, but it was fine! I think I owe a big thank-you to yoga class! We wrapped it up in 53:00 or so. Yay! 🙂
Post-exercise snack of toast and sunflower seed butter:
Which held me over until our very fun triple date at an Asian-Spanish fusion restaurant called Zen Fusion.
I had Sangria:
And fried plantains to start (I split this plate with Isaac). These were a little sweet, a little salty, and totally amazing.
My entree was yellow curry tofu, which was also divine! I liked that you could sub out the white rice for brown and how many veggies came with the dish.
Sad news: Despite the fact that all the other curries + Pad Thai was labeled â€œvegetarian,â€ they are made with fish sauce. Thank goodness Isaac asked for the table because I was about to enjoy a fishy coconut curry. Bah. Fish sauce does not = vegetarian (the yellow curry was vegetarian).
And we went to get â€œveganâ€ cupcakes at a new cupcake place. I was really excited!
Unfortunately, there was just one vegan cupcake, so I got a regular white on white mini cupcake that was totally subpar. Donâ€™t mean to sound whiny, but I wonâ€™t be back.
Side Note: Iâ€™m getting so excited for 2011! Have you started to think of resolutions? Iâ€™ve been jotting some down; I actually love resolutions. Do you?
