Let’s back up to yesterday – I made a broccoli salad for today’s BBQ. It is basically macaroni salad with broccoli instead of pasta.
I used broccoli instead of macaroni for three reasons:
1. We have a huge bag of broccoli to use up and it’s too hot to roast it.
2. I want to save my carb intake for chips and cookies on the 4th!
But even so-so cookies are pretty good when they are fresh from the oven so I had two three.
This morning I slept in a little and finally peeled out of bed for a run. I wanted to do 8 miles and came in at just about 7.84 which doesn’t make any sense since I turned back at 4. Whatev.
I ran in a new direction because I am extremely bored with my usual route. It was nice to change it up. But I felt slow and tired for the first 3 miles. It took me that long to get warmed up!
When I got back I was super thirsty but not hungry at all. Eh. Just an off day.
I ate food for breakfast. Then, I hit up the store for supplies for a Fourth of July flag cakie.
Now we’re headed to my mom’s for a BBQ, pool time and fun!
Have a good one!
