My second mom, that is 🙂
I got a chunk of work done this afternoon, but still have an article and an Open Sky thing to do tomorrow. Hopefully I can knock those out before my run and can enjoy the whole afternoon! What I really love about long distance running (which I’m sure will/would also be a hate too!) is that the runs are an EVENT. One must plan a whole day around the run and recovery time. It makes it more fun!
I got a bad headache this afternoon. I think I was drinking enough water because – not to be too indelicate – but my fluids were clear. But maybe I had an electrolyte imbalance? That yoga class this AM was that tough!
Emily and I also had insatiable hunger! (Thirst?!) I swear I was drinking water. I had tea to start…
And then decided I was hungry and broke into the Bora Bora bars
Paradise Walnut Pistachio was my first try. It was good!! Sweet, chewy and nutty. Sadly it didn’t make a dent in my hunger, but I blame my exercise and not the bar!
Mail time, mail time, mail time!
You won’t BELIEVE what came in the mail today!!! Addressed from Mr. Andrew Monson (Matt’s brother) was an RSVP to our wedding!! THREE YEARS LATE!! He must have just found it in his belongings and sent it in 🙂 Totally fun!!!
My headache peaked right before we left for Karen’s and I took 2 IB profins. They knocked it out within 30 minutes. I always hesitate to take drugs. They just don’t feel right. But they sure make me feel right…
I also had an orange at Karen’s in an attempt to make myself more hydrated
And then once my headache was gone…..I dehydrated myself!!
Well, I felt totally better and Karen got us our favorite pinot so I had just a small glass. ‘Tis a Saturday night!
Next into my mouth:
Karen’s Best Vegetable Lasagna.
Made with cottage cheese (I don’t really care for ricotta) and sun-dried tomatoes, you won’t miss the meat! The sun-dried tomatoes are super meaty and chewy and this lasagna is packed with veggies. She altered the recipe a bit this time, but the one I linked to above is a winner!
She also made a fresh navy bean salad to go on the side
And to make sure my glycogen stores are in tippy top shape for tomorrow’s run: Great Harvest Bread Pudding!
[She used a standard recipe but used GH bread. This was not low-fat! I don’t have the recipe, sorry.]
Topped with a wee bit of vanilla ice cream! We enjoyed dessert while watching the movie Hachi with Richard Gere. It was pretty good! Hachi was so cute.
Karen also brewed some decaf coffee. I’m not one for coffee after dinner. It just seems like the wrong time of day (even being decaf) but I enjoyed this SO MUCH!! Like oats + coffee!
Thanks for the fun night Karen!
Going to bed and sleeping in LATE!
