I have had so many different titles for this post pop into my noggin!!
On my way home from work I got into another funk. It may have been the cloud cover that shielded the sun. Or perhaps skipping coffee again. Or the fact that Matt was going out without me when I wanted a cozy night in. But my mood took a nosedive 🙁
I munched on an Alliebar made with love in hopes that it filled my soul
It tasted wonderful, but the funk persisted. PMS perhaps?
Me being funky in the car on the way to workout
The clouds cleared and I G-chatted Emily to see if she wanted to join me for a run. She did, and I met Casey and Emily at the greenway 26 minutes later.
They both just got Camelbaks and the 3 of us looked like a pack of camels running together!!
5 miles later, happiness broke through the clouds. Nothin’ like a run!
Once home and quickly showered, I got to work on dinner.
AND A BEER!!! A pumpkin ale I’ve had in the fridge for AGES. Lately I have not enjoyed the feeling of being buzzed, but tonight that’s all I wanted. It’s been a rough, long week 🙁
The best beer there ever was!! Cottonwood Pumpkin from just down the road in Mooresville, NC.
My pizza salad consisted of 4 tiny slices of leftover homemade pizza heated in the oven (the only way I’ll eat leftover pizza)
Plus a bed of baby spinach topped with sautéed brussels and mushrooms in tomato sauce and goat cheese
I cooked the shrooms and brussels with the Garlic Gold Parmesan Nuggets. What an easy and fun blend! No chopping or grating 🙂
Also used some of Matt’s homemade tomato sauce – LOVE homemade!
I couldn’t quite finish the spinach – beer is filling!
I had a piece of Chocomize for dessert. Now I’m going to clean the kitchen all by myself and then put fresh sheets on the bed and read for a bit.
TOMORROW: I’m going to the South Carolina Dietetics Association Annual Meeting. I have to be up at 4:45 😥 SO TRAGIC. Two weeks in a row up before the sunrise. I’ve got an hour and a half drive (thankfully I’m carpooling) and then a full day of indoor work when the forecast is sunny. I AM looking forward to a workshop on Sports Nutrition though. I’m not sure when or how I will be blogging, but I’ll be here sooner or later. Sunday is busy as well! I really need a pedicure, a massage and a day off! Also a trip to Bald Head Island…
Which brings me to…
