Let's get to the eats, shall we?
Last night's dinner:
Chicken stir-fry with asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, red pepper, squash, and snow peas.
Breakfast was a bowl of Nature's Path Flax Plus Multibran cereal and Puffins with milk. No pic, because it's boring. :)
Lunchie was uber-tasty! I had more taboule:
Pita chips and hummus (just discovered Sabra and it is amazing!)
Plus a Kashi Peanut Peanut Butter granola bar that lives up to the label.
All together now:
After work tonight, I hit the gym for an amazing workout (more deets below), and was starving by the time I got out of the shower. Luckily, Grandma had given us a few of her made-from-scratch pasties, which only required a quick warm-up in the oven.
By the way, it's "pass-tee", not "paste-ee". Get your minds out of the gutter, people!
My husband is the greatest, and last night he went to Jilbert's to pick up my favorite ice cream in the whole wide world. Unfortunately, they no longer package this flavor to sell in stores, but they did offer to pack up a quart-sized container to take some home with us.
Amaretto Mackinac Island Fudge. Does that not sound amazing?? I have tried other cherry and chocolate flavored ice cream, but none of them even come close to this perfection!
So, I have some pretty exciting news today!
As you may know, I have been training for a half marathon the last couple months. I was intending on running the Community First Half Marathon in Appleton, Wisconsin on September 20, however, I hadn't yet registered.
The first reason I didn't register right away had to do with money. As in, hubby and I didn't have much to throw around while I was waiting to take my boards and start working full-time. When I finally thought I would register a couple weeks ago, Keith and I got some very exciting news (to be shared soon, promise!). This news involves a date that has yet to be determined, but there is/was a possibility it could conflict with the race.
A few days ago, I learned that there is a half marathon in Marquette on September 26! It's the Lake Superior Shore Run and this is the course description:
