What I Ate Wednesday

Yesterday was supposed to be much busier than it ended up being.

It started with a run with Scar, that went oh so well, not!  I came home and tried to move on with a hearty breakfast to get ready for my day!

Sundried tomato chicken sausage, spinach, eggs whites with some mozzarella!

No coffee with breakfast, it was just too hot and I hadn’t planned ahead enough to make iced coffee.

Lunch was a hodge podge of things that I spread out through the day.  I had a lunch meeting followed immediately by a Neuro Rehab exam.  I forgot to take pictures of my Fage Honey Greek Yogurt and Strawberries.  Then later I had:

Dinner was also a thrown together mix of what we had.  The “steaks” we made were not the kind that are intended to be eaten as we ate them.  It was a flat iron steak, better for tacos, stirfry, etc but we though we would try it.  Case sauteed some onions and peppers to put on top to liven it up.  It wasn’t the greatest ever, but it was sustinence which is the purpose of food, right!  Along with some green beans, not a bad dinner.

Sorry for the awful lighting, I am getting my camera fixed this weekend!

However, the highlight of my food day was: BEN AND JERRY CINNAMON BUN ICE CREAM!!

My friend Maribeth was raving about this last week at the race and it was on sale so I figured that is enough signs pointing to the fact that I needed to have some.  I am a Half Baked down to the very depths of my soul kind of girl but I am telling you y’all, this stuff is amazing!!

I actually ate half of the container while we were watching the basketball game  before I realized what I had done!

P.S. Mid way through composing this post, I got an call that our free clinic is closed tonight due to extreme flooding downtown (gotta love Charleston).  This is a super bummer for our patients, but I have to say, it is amazing to have a Wednesday night not eating dinner at 9:00!!

Half way through the week, hope you are having a great one!

 

 

The Run from H***

My first class was cancelled today which meant I didn’t have class until 10 and didn’t have to get up until 8 which was amazing!!  What was not so amazing was the it was hotter at 8 am today than it was at 4 pm, who knew.

I decided to take Scarlett for this run and it was her longest run yet, 4 miles (up from her regular 3).  The fact that it was so hot and humid did not bode well for us.  She pulled me back the first two miles (as she always does on the way out) but then was able to pick up the pace toward the end, her last split was a 7:00 min/mile with the first split an 8:53 min/mile.  She is the master of negative splits, haha.

The run itself was insane though, we were not in sync.  There was so much more traffic at 8 than there is at 6 or 7.  Trucks were honking at us, which scared her and made her dart all over the place.  There was a huge thunderstorm last night so there were puddle everywhere, which she gladly jumped in every single one.  She kept really trying to herd me today, which she always does but was especially bad today.  I think because it was a different route than the same 3 mile loops she has gotten so used to.  Anyway, she tripped me like 4 times and one time I was so close to actually face-planting it was outrageous.

To top off her lovely behavior, she had pooped in the yard right before we left so I didn’t bring a bag with us like I normally do, but she dug her heels in and leg one go right in the middle of the battery with so many people watching.  I was horrified, there was nothing I could do and I certainly wasn’t picking it up with my hands.  I said a quick “I’m sorry” to the gods and prayed for rain soon (which we got this afternoon) and continued on our way.

I absolutely love my four-legged running partner, but shesh, sometime she is more trouble than she is worth!!

Love my girl!!
