The husband and I got a call this morning from two of our best couple friends who are currently in the middle of a major bathroom remodel, asking if we were available to come help with hanging some drywall. Of course, we jumped out of bed and headed over (as soon as I knocked out a run and the husband knocked out a shower)! A quick 3 mile run for me, and we headed out to get good and dusty. Drywall is some serious work, but we had a great time and I think having 4 hands involved made things go by super fast!
Today’s Workout: A quick 3 mile run! My legs have been suuuuuuper sore recently, and I feel like I haven’t had a good run in a couple of weeks. You know the kind I mean–that run where you just feel good, could keep going for miles, etc. I’m hoping that a couple of lighter workouts this week will have me back ready for some longer runs next week. I’m ready to have that “good run” feeling again, for sure.
Breakfast: I grabbed a new cereal at the grocery yesterday, so today I had to give it a shot! Plus, after my run (even though it was short), I was hot and sweaty and in need of something light and cool. Kashi Go Lean Crunch Berry hit the spot! Breakfast was accompanied by half a banana to get my fruits and veggies quota in for the day.
Lunch: My friend Felicia made us a wonderful lunch at her house during a drywall break. We had Morningstar brand Chipotle Black Bean Burgers topped with some lite cheddar cheese from Trader Joe’s, accompanied by a mixed green salad (topped with some Newman’s Own lite Raspberry and Walnut dressing) and some chipotle-seasoned sweet potato fries.
Dinner: Today was a friend-tastic day, and the husband had some guy friends come over to grill brats for dinner. I wasn’t feel ing the whole grilling scene after the “burger” earlier in the day, so I helped myself to some leftover lentils/sausage/kale mix from last night, accompanied by a salad full o’ veggies, a crescent roll, and a few apple slices. Dessert topped it all off with a couple of bites of red velvet cupcake!
Snacks: Snacking was kept to something of a minimum today due to the majority of the day being spent in a dusty bathroom, but while I was making dinner I did grab a mini-reese’s cup to stave off the hunger and sugar cravings!
In other news, Daniel (otherwise known as the husband) has a job interview tomorrow, so any good vibes/happy thoughts/positive juju would be most welcome and appreciated!
