It was so totally cool that the group of us were able to get together during the workday for lunch and a walk.
We’ve all have lots to do today (or some of us got it done at 3am) but squeezed in time for lunch and a walk with Gilbert!
Gilbs even got in a few minutes of “Scruff” with Matt (they run around and compete)
Our lunch was an amazing potluck spread
We brought the bread (of course) and popchips
Kate + Nate had the coldcuts, condiments, hummus + veggies, grapes + pineapple, oatmeal cookies and major hospitality!
I made a delicious Ham, Swiss + Hummus Sandwich on a Flax Oat Bran bun – with pickles, mustard, mayo and peppers.
A few Popchips
A half cup or so of broccoli
And a ton of fresh fruit + veggies + hummus
Talk about a rainbow!
Then came dessert!!
Kate’s chewy oatmeal cookies
and Great Harvest Savannah Bars!
I had a bite of each
And a second bite of Savannah (and a second cookie nibble that too quick to catch!)
Walking is good for digestion!!! We did about 40 minutes of walking with Gilbert on the Greenway.
Then we hit up Target. I got a UK adapter, travel shampoo, travel Advil, Q-tips, a traveler’s neck pouch, travel deodorant, and Swiffer dusters!
Upon arriving home, I found this package in my mailbox from Whitney in Chicago!! I could SMELL the wonderful coffee before I even opened the package. She also sent me some of her homemade granola, which you can find here: Granola w/ Almonds, Pistachios and Cranberries. Can’t wait to try both tomorrow morning!!! Thank you Whitney!
This morning I went on a great 6 mile run. I was feeling really full from breakfast at first and didn’t know if I’d make it, but after my stomach settled some (after a slower jog than my normal pace) I picked up speed and raced like the wind for the last 2 miles. Our weather has gotten much worse since :( I had an apricot half and 2 walnuts to tide me until lunch. It’s amazing how something so small can work like that.
Happy Dietitian Day!! The ADA president, Martin Yadrick, rang the Opening Bell to start the NASDAQ trading day!
My to-do list has not shrunk much….see you again soon!
