It’s been a good day (knock furiously on wood). I was running late this morning and barely made it to class on time (also almost ran out of gas) only to find that class is canceled Thanks for the heads up Professor! BUT that means my spring started a few days earlier… here’s to no classes for a week and a half!
I also had planned to get up a little early this morning to go for a run (something I used to do all of the time). And then I woke up and my hip was aching really badly so I made the executive decision to forgo the run to prevent worsening the pain (something I’ve FINALLY learned to do). Instead of going back to bed, however, I did 30 minutes of stretching and ab work.. go me! And I must say that my hip felt SO much better after a little stretching. And you know.. getting up a little early wasn’t so bad. I’m going to try to make this a regular thing on busy days so I get a little bit of exercise in. Something is better than nothing!
Another thing that made my day? No class meant a TJ’s run! It’s been far too long… I came out with:
- 2 Clif Mojo Bars
- Promax bar
- Chocolate Chip Z Bar (who says they’re just for kids?)
- Spicy and Tangy Almonds
- Roasted and Salted Cashew Pieces
- Peanut Butter Cream Cheese (YES!)
- Strawberry Cream Cheese (I couldn’t decide..)
- Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Mini Vanilla Cupcakes
- Gluten Free Waffles
- Crisp Rice Cereal
- Mini pizzas
- Vegetable Lasagna
- TJ’s Mac & Cheese
- Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread
- Cinnamon Crumpets (that I’m SUPER excited to try!)
- Asparagus (yes I did get at least one vegetable.. heh)
And last but not least…
Yes, that would be red wine with a hint of chocolate. Am I incredibly ridiculously excited to try it? Um.. absolutely. I love you TJ’s!
And now to recap my meals…
Breakfast two days in a row.
Except today I added some yogurt
Lunch yesterday involved a new item I received from Tostitos through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker’s Program (how much do I LOVE this program?!) … their artisan recipes chips. First up was the Fire-Roasted Chipotle!
I paired it with a BLT on whole wheat..
Bacon: the reason I couldn’t be a total vegetarian.
And the chips? I approve!! I thought they faintly tasted like Doritos. My boyfriend, however, said they tasted like pizza. He ate almost all of the bag. He hated them, obviously 😉
