We left our bedroom window open last night which made for a great sleep. That was, until the birds began chirping at 4am! Do bird’s ever sleep I wonder? HA! Here’s my morning eats;
-1 cup water -1/3 cup Red River cereal -cinnamon, salt, vanilla -banana -chocolate PB2 -hemp seeds -carob chips
This bowl had some serious staying power! I ate my figs around 11:15, but that was more to curb my sweet tooth that anything else!
The morning whipped right along which is always appreciated. I hit up the gym today for a nice run. I made sure to have that fan pointing at me again because it was still 77*F in there! BLETCH. If the air continues to be problematic, I’m going to really have to commit to later in the evening runs because the heat makes me feel sick. No motivation in that!

I enjoyed a fabulous salad again today. After the indulgences of the weekend (which were TOTALLY worth it, by the way) it’s nice to get back into my regular eating routine.
In here we have baby spinach, asparagus, steamed broccoli, chicken and Sabra hummus as dressing.
I didn ’t realize how green this salad was until I went to eat it! Terrific!
My afternoon pick me up was one of Angela’s On The Glo PB bars … In the words of Marianne … HOLY BATMAN was this ever tasty! I meant to just eat half and save the rest for later on, but I couldn ’t resist eating it all. There was also some honeydew melon and watermelon slices leftover from a meeting. I wanted something cold and this fit the bill! It was wonderfully HOT outside today so instead of putting the oven on we grilled up some burgers. I had a Sun Dried Tomato Basil Garden burger on an Ezekiel English muffin with some LC & avocado smash and a wee bit of BBQ sauce. Some berries rounded out my plate quite nicely, Here's the gardenburger box so you can see exactly what kind these were. I really like the taste and would buy them again in a heartbeat. My sweet end was the very last mini burger cupcake.... I ate this on the way to DS's soccer game. For me the best part of these little guys was the "patty"! I loved the peppermintiness (is that even a word?).
I'm off to gather the necessities for the morning. Then I plan on sitting outside with a magazine until it's too dark to read anymore. Gotta take full advantage of these warmer nights.
