I had an appointment for a blood test this morning. It required that I not eat for 12 hours before. Boo. Luckily, I wasn’t that hungry from all that food over the weekend. Well, I was a little hungry, but I think that was just because I knew I couldn’t eat, so I wanted to.
I made myself a yogurt/pumpkin/cottage cheese/cereal bowl with AB.
The nurse said, “You’re easy” in reference to my blood letting. She has no idea.
I guess my big ol’ veins come in handy.
I decided on the almond milk tea, a little less sweeter than normal and they got it perfect.
Then, I grabbed my new yoga mat and bag and headed to class. I’m going to be sticking with Level 1 for a while because I just want to focus on stretching and getting myself back to loving yoga for a while. I’m not burning a lot of calories, but I’m finally making some time to s-t-r-e-t-c-h and that’s important
Post yoga I did some shopping at TJ’s for groceries and then headed home for lunch. Terra’s chips sent me these a long time ago and I keep forgetting to crack them open.
When I got home last night I noticed some tupperware containers on the top of the fridge. They aren’t normally up there, so I thought it was odd.
Ben made a huge batch of chocolate chips cookies on Saturday night. He followed the recipe on the back of the chocolate chips bag. It’s actually an inside joke because his mom’s choc chip cookie recipe is from the back of the bag, but when ever anyone else tries to make them they don’t turn out like hers. I’m convinced she had a secret ingredient or something!
I had a few cookies with some milk this afternoon. As I was unpacking I spotted the Frog Hollow Farm granola I got from the Foodbuzz Fest and had to have some of that too.
Some of the best granola I’ve ever had.
I didn’t take pictures of my dinner because I was majorly multi-tasking and didn’t plate it nicely anyways. Instead I’ll share a little trick I use to incorporate vegetables into pasta dishes…
Before I drain the cooked pasta I put broccoli (or sometimes spinach) into the colander.
Then, I pour the boiling water with the pasta right on top of it. This gives the vegetables a quick splash of boiling water to soften them, but not make them soggy.
I need to finish up my training plan for my next few races – they’re coming up soon and I’ve been taking it easy since Long Beach. That will get done tonight.
1. 8 hours of sleep a night
2. Get back on the no-gum wagon – I fell off hard this weekend.
3. No more cookies
