I was a baking machine today, which totally lifted my mood, considering the not so stellar morning I had!
I woke up way the heck early (I can never sleep in at home; anyone else like this, if you live away?!) and found out that my toes were in an ENORMOUS amount of pain. Upon examination they weren’t swollen or anything, but I suppose the best way to describe it would be: tight. They were as hard as rocks. No joke. And they hurt, VERY BADLY. I could barely walk on them since they hurt to the touch. I laid around for a while with my legs up against the wall hoping that would help, but did nothing. Ideas? I’m totally at a loss!
Anyhow, it was chilly this morning (not compared to some others where it was in the single digits or below zero!) so of course I had to have oats: apple cinnamon peanut butter!
I spent the morning catchin up on your lovely bloggies and trying to figure out what was wrong with my toes when I finally got off my butt to go run. That made my toes feel better as I moved, but afterwards it was worse than when I started. Ack, and of course the 7.5 miles weren’t even that great anyhow.
Actually, it totally sucked. I was trying to focus on the present, the mile that I was in instead of dreading on the miles to come, but I was still eck. I think I was actually hungry and lacking fuel since I waited too long after breakfast.
Ok, rant over.
I cleaned up and got in some food as I was totally starving. I had an Arnold’s Thin w/ one egg and one white, laughing cow light cheese, tomatoes and spinach. On the side I had some carrots and hummus
And a crunchy, unripe enough mango. Blah.
That didn’t hold me over long at all so I decided on a treat courtesy of Newman’s Own Organics! I decided to try their Original Hermits…I am IN LOVE. These babies are so soft, chewy, flavorful and stuffed with lots of plump raisins!! It was a wonder I was able to restrain myself to one.
I spent the rest of the afternoon baking, but it’s being kept a secret because there are some ladies out there that are actually going to be receiving them sooooooooooonnnnnn! In the midst, I consumed more baby carrots and pretzel thins w/ hummus, and another apple.
But I was super excited for dinner, as it consisted of ROASTED VEGETABLES! I roasted an entire Eggplant and Butternut Squash with Italian seasonings, added the eggplant to chickpeas, marinara, spinach and japanese rice…
And had like, 1/2 the butternut squash on the side…with a wee bit of ketchup.
Anyone have any weekend plans?! I’m going to be meeting up with one of my favorite bloggers, Bobbi (!!!) for a SLEEPOVER and other fun things you’ll find out about tomorrow and the day after! I know you’re going to be excited for it!
