After 30 years, I have finally figured it out:
brains + personality = beauty
(I worked from home = casual outfit). Top: target; cardigan: Loft; jeans: GAP; short necklace: street vendor in Montreal; long necklace: Loft; shoes: Toms.
I can barely remember doing it, but this morning because with a 5:00 AM 1 hour and 20-minute run at conversation pace with the L-ster. I fit in two 15-minute walks later, one after my run to shake my legs out and one over my lunch break. The day ended with a 60-minute Body Pump class.
Pre-run I had 1/2 banana, 1/2 mug of black coffee, and 1 pint of water. For breakfast I had a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with homemade toasted coconut granola, pumpkin puree, and almond milk.
Lunch was a peanut butter and banana sandwich on whole wheat toast.
My first afternoon snack was a leftover Dijon, thyme, and pine nut broccoli, raw broccoli, and raw carrots with a dollop of plain hummus.
My second afternoon snack was plain Greek yogurt with a crumbled and warmed cinnamon raisin bran muffin.
Dinner was pan-seared salmon (dressed with lemon juice, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and paprika), roasted eggplant and asparagus, and a Dijon-yogurt-thyme dipping sauce.
The Dijon-yogurt-thyme sauce (which I created to satisfy a mustard craving) was a fantastic compliment to the salmon and asparagus, especially. I simply combined (approximately) 1 part Dijon mustard to about 4 parts plain Greek yogurt along with some chopped fresh thyme and a small amount of agave nectar. Delicious.
