I made one for the husband this morning, too, because he never eats breakfast and I am trying to get him to start. He loved it, of course! But I'm pretty sure the only way he will keep eating breakfast is if I make it so it's ready for him in the morning.
Anyway, I worked again this morning, came home, and got ready for a run. My tummy was a little growly, so I made a quick snack.
Whole wheat sandwich thin with a schmear of dark chocolate pb.
I completed a 3.5 mile run today and was a total sweat monster afterwards. It went much more smoothly than on Tuesday!
Distance: 3.5 miles
Avg. Pace: 9:43
I made a post-run Green Monster to re-fuel:
I couldn't even fit it all in one glass! I had to take a few sips before I could empty the blender. I combined flax, spinach, banana, blueberries, skim milk, vanilla, and ice. No pb today. Still super yummy. Vanilla is my new go-to GM ingredient! (I bought a new big bottle today so I don't run out!)
I had a Dr. appointment this afternoon, and then met up with my mom for a mother-daughter date night! I have been dying to see the Harry Potter movie again, and Thursdays are Keith's nights for golf league, so I called her up for dinner and a movie.
We went to Sweet Water Cafe for dinner. I hadn't eaten there in ages and have had a major craving for it the last few days. I also had a craving for carrot juice, which is strange, because I've never had it before.
It was quite tasty. It basically tastes just like carrots with a little bit of sweetness. It also turns your lips orange---even after one sip! Luckily, the orange color rubbed off.
I ordered the ginger stir fry with chicken:
This was loaded with veggies, chicken, and brown rice. I would definitely order this again.
My mom ordered one of the specials, a whole wheat rotini pasta with spicy marinara:
Also very good! Sometimes I forget about little Sweet Water, but it really is so yummy. Their breakfasts are wonderful, as well as their European hot chocolate. I haven't had one of those since undergrad!
Harry Potter was again fabulous. After seeing some people comment that they were disappointed with things left out or whatnot, I wondered if I would be bothered by this the second time around. My original opinion still holds firm: this is my favorite of the films so far.
Time to hit the hay. I have the day off tomorrow, but that just means I have the whole day to study study study!!! Good night!
