Gotta get to bed in 3…..2…..
Had a GREAT run tonight!!! In fact, it was a pretty great day! I got home from work after a good conference call with Open Sky. LOTS of fun things coming! Then I caught up on my blog job for about 30 minutes and headed out for a run. One of the keys to afternoon exercise for me is I CANNOT be hungry! If I am I will cut my workout short and come home ravenous, so I made sure to fill up on a bar during my commute home even though I wasn’t totally hungry for it. I knew I’d need it before my run.
I actually really love these new Vega Vibrancy bars. I will warn you, the taste is quite strange and very seaweed-y, but if you can get over the taste, the TEXTURE is so totally awesome that I think this is my new favorite bar! There are almonds and hemp seeds embedded in a chewy, datey base and the crunch is similar to that of Nuttzo and my favorite Flax Oat Bran bread. I think I have decided that I just love the texture of crunchy bits embedded in soft chew. The 9 grams of protein make this bar a hunger fighter (it sat like a rock in me) and the greens make it very nutritious. I have yet to try the chocolate flavor!
So I set out on my run in long sleeves (my new very favorite Old Navy sports t-shirt) and leggings and it was the perfect temperature outside. 60*, warm and great for running. I knew right away I wanted it to be a speed run: 5.5 miles in 47:21.
My legs and lungs both felt awesome. The run was a battle with daylight and I made it home just when darkness was setting.
Also dying of thirst!
That bar really held me over because I had no interest in dinner for over an hour. I shower, did more work, wrote thank you notes, cleaned. Finally I put Matt to bed and came down to whip something up [it was "On Your Own" night anyways since we had leftovers to use]
I used up Monday’s salad with more spinach, a drizzle of olive oil and agave with a sprinkle of salt and the last of my Cranberry goat cheese
I relocated this pretty setting to my coffee table to watch House Hunters!!
Dessert tempted me from the fridge: leftover Snickers Cheesecake
Small plate, small spoon, small slice 🙂
