Rainy and humid last night, but the morning showed some promise so we decided to go for a light run. I was not hungry when I woke up (shocking) so decided just to head out the door. It was so humid, which would have been okay, but then the sun came out and it felt so ucky while jogging! I told myself I needed to do 2 miles, then I could stop or keep going if I wanted. John had already pulled way ahead right from the start. I wanted to be slow because of my hamstring and just resting up for race day on Sat. After 2 miles, I was sweating so bad my forearms were dripping sweat (eeeewwwwww!!). Now that is sweaty. I decided on 1 more lap and then walked one. Turns out I lost count and actually ran 2.5 miles LOL! John was counting for me.
Had a lighter breakfast today of waffles and blueberries.
Got right to work and was hungry not long after. I did not have enough fat or protein with brekkie and wanted something nice and solid in my tummy for lunch. So my go-to when I want to be full? Oat bran! I was feeling nice and cool after my shower and the house was shady in the morning with a nice breeze, so I didn’t mind a hot lunch.
- 1/3 cup (40 grams) oat bran
- 1 small mashed banana
- 2 tbsp PB2
- dash of cinnamon
- topped with a few dark chocolate chips.
Look how melty they get on top. Sooo good.
Had a fairly craptacular day with work. I am learning a new account which is really frustrating, plus they upgraded their software which created real problems on our end. On top of that – a visit to the dentist today and they have to redo a filling because I may have a possible abscess forming, although we are hoping doing the new filling will take care of that and I won’t need a root canal. Then I find out that there is some damage to my rental property which needs to be taken care of. One of those days where you just want to cry, you know?
So – I told John I wanted to go out for dinner. We dropped off a couple library books that were due today and decided on Rock Hill Bakehouse. Very nice place with a politically outspoken owner. It’s casual there and very airy feeling:
Flowers at the table:
They serve local everything here and small company stuff (no Coke or Pepsi products!), so meat is okay here. I ordered the Grandpa Smith sandwich, which is ham, cheddar cheese, granny smith apple, honey mustard served on grilled cinnamon raisin bread. Yum!
My choice of side was a lemon pistachio biscotti, which I shared with John.
With all the problems earlier and the dental appointment, I am going to be working late tonight, so I had better get back at it. Sometimes I wish I led this life:
