I am doing well on the 2011 Goals and can’t wait to share!
I am adamant about getting rid of Ziploc bags from my home and life. They create things like this, that pollute our earth, ground water and oceans. It breaks my heart.
So I did what I thought best. No, not move to using foil or plastic wrap. Same difference to me and creates more trash. Trash, trash, trash!
I knew this was going to be a god-send to me. I currently use Ziploc bags but NO MORE! I went to the BagitConscious site on Etsy and was ecstatic at the different colors/patterns I could get in two different sizes! I ended up getting two sandwich and two snack size bags to help me out in the field! And of course, this goes well with the reusable lunch bag that I got from Target earlier last year.
Do you use a reusable lunch bag or containers for your food?! Would you consider using reusable lunch bags, even though you have to wash them (this is what I find deters people the most when it comes to reusable bags…)?
Tis was a chilly day today!
I woke up this morning famished (that salad last night did nothing for me apparently) so I had to have my most heavy sitting breakfast in the kitchen: Oats!
But this time I used a banana. GASP! I knew I was going to bring an apple out to the field with me so I opted for the banana in breakfast instead! Same mixture as my normal apple oats of course…almond butter/pb/cranberry spread…I can’t venture too far away.
A few hours later I had this horrible pain in the side of my body next to my stomach…so I thought I was hungry. I tried using an apple to cure the pain…
And that didn’t work…so I snacked on two of my homemade Blackberry Oatmeal Bars! That didn’t work either…so I drank a ton of water and hoped for the best.
Besides, I was too busy admiring the DESERT scenery…yes, the MOJAVE DESERT. Ya know, that place that gets up to 120*F+ during the summer!?
Oh yes…actually the point I’m standing on I had to hike to because the roads are all washed out…it’s gonna make for a hard winter season…as it can last up until May with snow. Oiy!
More fun for me!
I got home at a decent hour and wasn’t too hungry, but ate lunch just for kicks. I’ll admit, I was a tad bit bored and just wanted to get lunch over with, so there is was and happened. It looks sad yes…that tomato basil morningstar farm burger with mustard and tomatoes…sadly no lettuce/spinach cause I’m out and will be gone all weekend.
Then I proceeded to pass out on the couch for a while…the cold kicked my butt!
I waited for my running buddy to call and let me know she was ready for our run and boy oh boy was it a doozy! She lives in the hills and we hadn’t run them in a while (stupid knee injury) so I was feeling ready to try them again! We ran the 4.7 miles in just over an hour, and much of that time was needed to keep from slipping and sliding in the mud and snow slush all over the dirt roads! Whoooeee!
I was very much ready for dinner after cleaning up so I started on a roasted sweet potato with italian spices along with some broccoli and brussel sprouts. I also scrambled two eggs to add some protein into the mix.
Perfect for the palate that needs some clean eats.
Oh wait, did I say clean eats? Guess that was smashed for the day when I ate not one, not two, but three of these Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe’s for dessert…um, dessert/chocolate craving anyone? At least some part of me is happy to have had them…
I’m doing laundry to prepare for this weekend! It’s gonna be a long one with my cousin getting married, then my aunt being in town from NM so we’ve got a family gathering going on too! I don’t know how I’m going to get through the whole thing, especially all the driving! Ah! But I will get my last long run in there, hopefully Saturday morning on the beach of about 8-10 miles. We’ll see how I feel!
It’s just about the weekend! Yay!!!
