I have been putting EVERY effort into helping my body heal, so after several consecutive days of working, I was really looking forward to sleeping in and skipping the gym.
I slothed it up on the couch all day long. I kid you not. ALL.DAY.LONG. What goes with laziness? TV and grub. Enter DVR and a marathon of breakfasts.
My toast with Smart Balance light (it’s vegan, yo) didn’t hold me over very long, so an hour later I opted for a bowl of granola to supplement my brekkie (and a super overflowing cup of coffee).
My tummy was more than content with this.
I felt guilty for 2.5 seconds about my lack of exercise, but then got over it as I read blogs and researched rehearsal dinner restaurants in the Bay Area. I should probably be concerned since I’m running a half marathon in a few days, but to be honest, I don’t care how I do AT ALL. I haven’t trained properly for this race, so I have ZERO expectations. Realistically, I’ll be happy if I’m not coughing up a lung at the starting line (the finish line will be an entirely different beast). I have another race in October, so I will consider this my self assessment to see where my body is in terms of distance running.
Lunch? Well, it was 3 pm, but since I had breakfast so late, I rolled with it…
The apple was my amuse bouche (I operate on a slightly larger scale). The vegan chicken salad is a WF staple and it’s absolutely out of this world. I bought it as a part of WF’s 2/$5 deal (the other dish was a quinoa salad for Kyle). Pretty economical I think.
It’s a little on the fatty side because they use a LOT of vegan mayo, but when I mix it with lettuce and other salad fixins, it’s perfect. No dressing needed.
I wanted something cool for lunch dessert.
Cold. Chocolate. YUM. It really was SOY delicious.
I halved some strawberries because what goes better with chocolate than strawbizzles? (Ok Kyle, besides peanut butter)
I fell into a bit of a food coma in the PM, which was relaxing, until I woke up and realized I had nothing to make for dinner. Boo.
Housewife working girl fail.
No sweat. Whole Foods to the rescue. I really wasn’t hungry, and I couldn’t identify a single thing I felt like eating for dinner, so I decided to get the most basic of foods ever. I bought half a loaf of fresh bread from WF and a tub of hummus and called it a night. Done and done.
to help me heal for no reason whatsoever (I guess the whole “I’m sick” excuse can’t be used more than once in a single post).
Guess what I discovered!? Naturally More has EGG WHITES in it!? WTF. I am (was) heartbroken to have found this out. I have no clue how I missed this on the label…I guess I never figured a nutbutter would add eggs into their product? Foodie FAIL. Next time I buy AB I will be much more diligent in my research.
Anyways, I promise I will do more REAL stuff in the kitch in the near future. For some reason I’ve lost my desire to get my inner Isa Chandra Moskowitz on lately, but I guess that happens when you are producing 2 pints of snot a day…(too graphic? my bad).
