I was driving to the grocery store and caught myself absolutely GRINNING from ear-to-ear. I had such a happy day! Nothing big happened; it was just a fun, relaxing, productive day.
Toaster GF waffles with peanut butter, maple syrup, bananas and strawberries.
After breakfast, I went for a solo stroller run. I donâ€™t even remember the last time I went for a run without the Husband! Itâ€™s been a while. And I certainly donâ€™t remember the last time I willingly pushed the jogging stroller (truly, itâ€™s been months). I did about 2.5 miles. It was blazing hot and really challenging but it was fun. I felt great afterwards.
Came home and made a yummy almond butter, banana, and frozen berry smoothie with a big scoop of protein powder. I also had some rice cakes with cheese.
After snack time, it was ERRAND TIME. We are throwing Henryâ€™s birthday party this weekend, so first stop was Party City for decorations. Then, I went to a bunch of different grocery stores to stock up on party food and food for our out-of-town guests that are coming to visit. Maybe this is why I was so happy â€“ I love having visitors!
I got home much later than planned and ended up desperately throwing together a meal while I thought of this Instagram post. I ended up having toast with hard boiled eggs, a big scoop of green lentils, and blueberries. I scarfed it down before plopping Henry in front of Thomas the Tank Engine so I could do a business call. Later, when I had more time, I had a side salad.
I spent Henryâ€™s lunch wrapping up some work projects and cleaning the house. I finally unpacked my suitcase from the Heartbreak Hill 5K and 10K race. I ate these samplers! The Clif Mojo bar was pretty good, but a little too sweet for me. The Chia Bar in coffee flavor was OUT OF THIS WORLD, but I love chia seeds and love coffee, so I may be biased.
It was TACO NIGHT for dinner. My tacos were stuffed with tofu, broccoli, and veggies. Plus a serious load of salsa. And later, I had yet another banana (dude, I love bananas) with peanut butter and a plum.
