Sorry for the tardiness guys – I feel like I’ve been in another dimension today it was so atypical!
This morning’s pancakes (which we finished eating around 11am!) held me over for a long time. The husband and I decided to do a biathlon and bike and run for our workout. We biked 3 miles to the Y, locked up our bikes, ran about 4.5 miles around the neighborhoods there (it’s always nice for a change of scenery!), then biked the other way (2.2 miles) back home, showered, and then hopped back on our bikes to ride about 4 more miles to EarthFare, ate lunch, biked 4 miles back to Harris Teeter for groceries and then home! I think that totals about 17 miles covered!?!
At EarthFare we got delicious salads. It was 4pm by the time we were eating, so I knew dinner would be up in the air.
His + Hers
(We can’t do this often – it was way too expensive …but oh-so-good. Next time I’ll pack in less veggies to reduce the weight!)
My salad included:
- The famous deep fried BBQ tofu
- The most delicious salmon in the world
- The best falafel ball ever
- The butteriest pita chips ever (Sami’s brand)
- A few garbanzos
- Melons + blueberries
- Feta cheese
- Tofu “cottage cheese” (it was strange, but good!)
- Spicy broccoli
- Kale salad
- Marinated mushrooms
- And a base of various raw veggies with balsamic vinegar on them
I actually couldn’t finish my salad today and left a bunch of the veggies on the bottom. I think I could have finished, but knowing I was biking home, I didn’t want to feel sick. I should bike to meals more often to learn to stop when I’m at a 7 and not a 10. I brought the veggies home in a plastic container (we had a backpack for a few items we needed – including kashi crackers for $2.79 a box!) and planned to finish it at dinner, but it was so soggy and gross from the vinegar that I ended up tossing them into the compost. What a shame.
I also tried two bread samples in the store:
I waited all evening for hunger as my cue to make something for dinner but to no avail! I finally felt a little empty around 8:30 and settled on a yogurt + grain + fruit combo.
- The rest of a large container of Chobani (about 3/4 a cup?)
- A few raspberries
- A juicy white peach
- Kashi H2H
Back to the Olympics!! We have the gymnastic all-around final on the computer and tonight’s events on the TV. It’s quite confusing!
