Everyone knows that sometimes you just need a rest day. I had been doing about 8-9 miles everyday for the past 10 days and my body was starting to give me a hard time. My hips, especially were tight and achy. I felt as if I had arthritis! Anyway, I proclaimed Thursday my rest day. NO GYM for this girl.
The day started out like any other day. Filling & crunchy.
I don’t know what it is about this breakfast that satisfies my soul. Maybe because I used to ALWAYS eat cereal as a kid. It’s like for the first meal of the day, I’m back in a time when I had no worries or responsibilities…Cereal does it for me! Granted, then it was more like Lucky Charms or Fruity Pebbles, but you get the picture ;) What’s your favorite childhood cereal?
Speaking of childhood, I brought my little pink lunch tote to work containing all of the following goodies:
A veggie tub filled with a rainbow of color
Swimming in some apple cider vinegar mixed with Splenda.
Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Hot dogs @ 40 calories apiece and 6g protein! That’s a pretty good calorie to protein ratio if you ask me!
My snackTAXI is CLEAN! Finally getting to use it. No more ziplock baggies for me!! I’m working on getting these in MY SHOP.
Over my actual lunch break, I managed to hit the grocery store & the farmer’s market! I prefer to buy farmer’s market produce because it’s usually much cheaper than at the grocery store.
Here’s a shot of what I rounded up!
When I got home from work, I put away all the groceries and made myself a snack.
Art in a bowl?
Next on the agenda was to go support my Mom’s softball team in a home game at my alumni. It was a beautiful day for a game! When I arrived, they were in the 4th inning, losing 1-2.
Can anyone spot Momma Freckled Foodie????!
They ended up making a killer comeback and winning the game 10-2. I think I was the good luck charm because they were losing until I got there ;) Momma Freckled Foodie agreed.
After the game, I headed home and made some dinnah.
I guess looks are deceiving! This sandwich is actually a Gardenburger veggie patty with Sonoma Jacks & reduced sugar Heinz ketchup on a whole wheat light english muffin!
Along side my delish burger, I had some peas [& thank you].
I used to have serious pea issues. Like any other kid, peas & I were enemies at a younger age. What was an enemy food of yours growing up?
With my dinner, I drank the last of my iced birthday cake coffee. Time to make another pot!
Okay, so I know I said today was a rest day, but I was antsy. No one was home and I was bored, so I decided a little LIGHT biking was in order. No harm in that, right? Biking is a lot less hip rotation, so it didn’t bother me one bit. I went downstairs and ended up doing this
while I watched the most recent One Tree Hill episode & facebooked. So glad Brooke & Julian are back together.
I got a shower, packed my lunch for today, and had dessert.
After consumed, I hit the hay a happy camper.
