This may not be the prettiest bowl of food, but the taste was bang on!
We had another meeting today that lasted most of the morning. There was actually a lot of useful information so I didn’t mind sitting there for 2+ hours. The only issue was my more than full bladder. By the time the meeting was over, my eyeballs were yellow! :/ I pulled out this Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna Bar when I got back to my desk;
I love. love. LOVED this flavour! YUM-O! Too bad I haven’t seen it here in Canada. :(
The gym rocked again today. I ran until I hit the 4 mile mark which took 39:10 and then I walked the remaining 6 minutes at 4.1mph with an incline of 5%. Then I got some great leg stretching done.

I actually got full before this was done. I picked out all the chicken and feta and left about a 1/4 of the greens. Interesting trait of mine that I picked up in childhood. When we were kids and got full at a meal, Mom would always say for us to finish the meat and leave the rest. Looking back, I would thing finishing the veggies would’ve been healthier for us, but I’m sure the cost of meat played a big part in why we were to eat that at least. Does anybody else have any traits held over form your childhood that don’t necessarily make sense now?
The fam ate a mixture of tortellini an ravioli in a meat sauce. While this looked exceptionally tasty, I know that pasta sits in my belly like a rock so I made myself something lighter. I read about this cool little quinoa dish at Sarah’s blog and decided to try it out. I served it with a toasted English muffin;
The only things I switched up was mushrooms in place of carrots and 2 tbsp of this tapenade;
Every little bit helps, you know! ;) And they taste awesome….just like a chocolate chip cookie! DD and I are going to be taking the pup for a walk and then I’ll be settling in with some cantaloupe and SYTYCD Canada! Have a great night!
Bye for now!!
