Ready to Run

Today, was a good day.  I was ready for work with a breakfast cookie topped with berries and started off with a nice 3.5 mile hike in the desert!

Lunch rolled around and I was starving for lunch! I packed my favorite hummus and avocado sandwich packed with lots of cucumber, tomato and lettuce.  I’m a huge fan of crunch when it comes with my sandwiches!

I’ve got some organic mangoes ripening on the counter so it was time to dig in!  Such a refreshing fruit when I’m out in the field!

And because I wasn’t quite satisfied, I had a clif zbar.  Some have asked why I eat these instead of regular clif bars and it’s because the regular ones are just too big.  the zbars are a perfect size for me and just enough to  keep me full!

We finished up with some crazy off-roading in the desert and returned home to look at some….dead stuff.  Don’t ask. I snacked on an apple and a handful of TJ’s version of Wheat Thins.  I could eat those crackers FOREVER.

I had to get a tired changed (I’ve been driving around with a balled out tire!  Scary!) and returned to get some baking done! I made a few different kinds of cookies out of Eat, Drink and Be Vegan along with my favorite Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Bread  You know you’ll see a piece in this post!

I was tired by dinner time and didn’t feel like making anything that took time. So I had a salad beast with veggies and a veggies burger, with a side of Alexia Waffle Fries that I purchased using the coupon I got from Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker Program.

Was a great starch to add to the dinner!

And of course, a nice piece of banana bread for dessert. Still slightly warm with melty chocolate chips!

but on top of some great food today, I was excited to come home to this!

I’ve secretly been worried that it wasn’t going to get here on time, but alas, at least one of my worries have been smashed!  After seeing Meghann get a shirt recently from My Race Ragz I couldn’t pass up having a personalized shirt for my marathon on June 5th!!!

What do you think?!?!?!

I’m going to make one to wear to the expo using iron on letters but I’m trying to think of what to put on that one…suggestions?!

Thanks Meghann for the reference to this site!  I’m excited for my shirt…and race!  GAH!!! 10 DAYS!!!!!

    I love that shirt!
    I would looooove to see someone wearing a shirt advocating for vegetarianism or veganism. Maybe you could design a shirt for the expo around that? Like "veggies rock!" or something a little more sophisticated, haha.

    p.s. Check out my blog!

    SUCH a tasty day of eats! The fresh berries look amazing and I so want that sandwich. My favorite dinner is salad and french fries- especially of the waffle variety. Your shirt is TOO cute!
