I can’t believe I leave for Boston in two days, crazy! Packing and preparations are currently underway but there will be more on that in tomorrow’s post. Today is all about WIAW (again, thanks Jenn for hosting!).
As I mentioned yesterday , I woke up early and went for a painless 3 mile run. I wasn’t sure how far I’d make it and was really nervous so I didn’t eat anything beforehand, whoops! When I got back though I dug into an awesome breakfast of couscous strawberry cottage cheese oats with white chocolate wonderful peanut butter.
I worked most of the morning (have some stuff to get done before leaving on Friday) but took a break around 11 to register for this.
Yep that’s right, next January I will be tackling the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge. I think I’m more excited about escaping the Chicago cold for a couple of days .
Lunch was a mixed greens salad with mushrooms, walnuts, and dried figs and then a vanilla chobani with crumbled baked oatmeal.
Unfortunately this didn’t keep me full for very long and I started getting hungry around 3 when I left work to go to my afternoon class.
Ian and I didn’t do a traditional grocery trip last weekend so it’s slim pickins at the apartment this week. We decided that in lieu of calzone Tuesday we would go to Bar Louie for dollar burgers (portobella for me).
I went with a portobella burger with pepper jack cheese, tomatoes, grilled onions, and pickles and it only cost about $3.00.
Ian and I also split fries and tots.
Not too shabby for dollar night!
When we got home I was craving chocolate in a bad way and attempted to make chocolate pudding.
I mixed 1/2 mashed banana, 2 T vanilla chobani, 2 T unsweetened almond milk, 1 T cocoa powder, and 1 tsp maple syrup and then plopped a dark chocolate pb cup in the center. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great, it definitely tasted healthy. It did satisfy my chocolate craving though .
I spent the rest of the evening doing homework and then at 11 plopped down on the couch to watch an episode of Friends before bed. I most definitely did not get enough sleep and am paying for it this morning!
