Today is one of those days that I just don’t know where the time went. Maybe it was because I was out of my normal routine or that I lazed around most of the morning? Who knows but I feel a little .
I woke up super early (thanks Sonic ) and thought that I was going to go for a run right away so I blogged while snacking on half of a breakfast cookie. Minutes turned into an hour and I was enjoying my lazy morning just a little too much to run at that instant so I settled in and threw together some breakfast.
As of this morning our fridge and pantry were pretty bare, so I made-do with the remains of the greek yogurt, a crumbled sweet cornbread muffin, an adora disc, and a clementine.
I busied myself for a few hours with homework until Ian woke up and declared he wanted to go to the gym with me. I was overjoyed, I LOVE company at the gym. I spend so much time there alone, it’s nice to go with a buddy (or a boyfriend .
It had been a little too long since breakfast and I didn’t want to work out on an empty stomach so I made this wonderful little snack.
I warmed some frozen berries and topped them with sunflower butter and cashews. Simple, sweet, and warm. I will definitely be having this again
I had 4 miles on the schedule today but my ankle bothered me to the point where I had to stop running. I switched over to the elliptical for about 10 minutes and experienced no pain, but when I tried the treadmill again I had to stop after 1/4 of a mile. I was in way too much pain to keep going .
This really shocks and concerns me because I had absolutely no warning pain. No pain yesterday, this morning before the gym, and I didn’t feel anything snap, break, click etc on the treadmill. I really have no idea what caused it but I hope it goes away fast! I have 16 miles on the schedule for tomorrow and I really want to run, but I don’t want to hurt myself or jeopardize running Boston in April.
Lunch temporarily cheered me up. Ever since our trip last weekend, Ian and I have both been craving Panozzo’s. Well, today we braved the mile walk in 20 degree temps all in the name of delicious sandwiches.
I got the same sandwich as last time, the vegetarian, only this time I ordered the smaller size.
I could easily finish the entire bigger sandwich, but I probably would eat it all whether or not I was hungry. It’s just soo tasty. By ordering the 6 inch, I prevented inevitable overeating while not feeling deprived
Ian and I also split the special soup of the day, salted cod. It, like everything else in the Italian market, was super delicious. I honestly don’t know if there is anything bad at Panozzo’s.
After lunch, Ian and I ran a couple of errands on foot, watched some Friday Night Lights, and even took a short nap. It was a very successful Saturday
My dinner was veggie-centric to balance out the heavier carbs early in the day. I made a quick stir fry using leftover broccoli slaw, some sliced mushrooms, tofu, and cashews.
We also heated up some Crab and Lobster Rangoon from TJ’s but neither of us could eat them. They were waaaay too fishy. I love almost everything from TJ’s but I have to say, the Rangoon were actually pretty disgusting.
Dinner left me with the hugest fiber baby, so dessert was a rice cake topped with ricotta cheese (I accidentally bought the fat-free kind again, booo) and cranberry jam. I also had some almond milk.
I’m off to relax on the couch, ice my ankle, and hope that the temperature tomorrow morning is above 20 degrees and that I am pain-free!
16 miles in the morning (hopefully)!
