Running Low

July 5, 2010

On energy today!  Because it worked better for Joey to do his 3-mile run today instead of tomorrow, we both decided to switch our Monday and Tuesday training schedules.  I don’t know why, but this 3-miler KILLED me today 😦  Well, the last mile did anyways.  I think it was a mixture of hunger and the fact that we ran all 3 miles in 9 minutes or under!  Whew, that’s faster than usual but I was just running at what was comfortable.  I may have even told Joey to “KEEP UP!!”  And I thought he was the fast one 🙂

Oats for two were in orderI mixed in a handful of blueberries in the last 2 minutes of cooking then topped with ~10 cherries per bowl + a graham and PB samich and a sprinkle of sucanat.DIVINE

I have a few things I’d like to get done today but I’m thinking a day of R & R would be much better 🙂  It’s been a SUPER busy weekend and this week should be busy to, what with my birthday and all so I think my body deserves a rest!

As it turned out, the 4th of July 2010 turned out to be slightly disappointing, yet again…

Grilled Vegetable and Mozzarella Sandwiches were made and packed up.  We planned on eating them picnic-style with a fruit salad while we waited for the fireworks show to start, but the rain intervened and we ended up eating them in Bobby’s car.

Oooh, baby were they delicious!

Who needs meat on a sandwich anyways?  Not me!The rain went from a heavy downpour to a slight drizzle, allowing the fireworks to start (even though it wasn’t quite dark yet).  Claire and I peeked out from the back of the car

And giggled at the GIANT sparkler Bobby had bought.  Too bad we didn’t get to use it 😦It started dumping rain as soon as the finale started.  The poor boys had been standing outside the car and got a little wet.  Bobby and Claire thankfully offered to drop us back off at our car.

We ended the night with hot tea, oatmeal raisin cookies and Transformers 2

NOTE: I am NOT a Dallas Cowboys fan!  I’m wearing Joey’s sweatshirt.  It’s his favorite team and he’s even a season ticket holder.  I, on the other hand, don’t even watch football and always root against the Cowboys just to annoy Joey 😛

Last week I saw at least 3 blog entries that displayed tempeh sandwiches for lunch (here, here and here) so today I had to try it! 

Organic Five Grain on Cinnamon Raisin Swirl with a small smear of goat cheese.  Sounds interesting…Tasted pretty good!  I’m still getting used to the taste of plain tempeh but the bread and cheese went pretty well together.  Plus some organic strawbs, of course.Now for a little Ferris Bueller’s Day Off action.  The intro at the beginning of the movie argued that FBDO is John Hughes’ best movie.  I honestly can’t pick a favorite!  Pretty in Pink, Home Alone, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, wow!  What’s your favorite John Hughes movie?

      Hey Natalie, thanks for the compliment!! 🙂 I’d like to claim that this is my natural hair color but I’ve dyed it so many times I can’t remember what my natural color is! I need to try your banana bread pudding coffee cake recipe without the changes, I bet it’s AWESOME! All of Hughes’ movies are such gems 😀 The cinnamon raisin swirl is from the Great Harvest Bread Co., there’s bakeries all over the US. I highly suggest you give them a visit!
