my less serious day: (...)

(If you don't have anything clever to say, don't say anything at all.)

Wearing.

Dress: LOFT; cardigan: old, unknown; necklace: gifted via Grandma!; heels: Miz Mooz.

Doing.

This morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace followed by a 15-minute cool down walk with L. On Monday I typically attend a 60-minute Body Pump class (my favorite!). I finished the day with a 10-minute walk when I returned home.

Eating.


Pre-run I had 1/2 banana, 1/2 mug of black coffee, and 1 pint of water. For breakfast I had this bowl (times 2) of Cheerios mixed with Kellogg's All-Bran and the last of the Post Shredded Wheat (look for a review next week), 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.


Lunch was a carrot sticks dipped in peanut butter, an Amy's Sonoma veggie burger drizzled in the good stuff (i.e., ketchup), and a bowl of cottage cheese with grape tomatoes and cracked pepper.


My afternoon snack was Quaker Honey Nut Oatmeal Squares (yum!) and cocoa-dusted almonds.


Dinner was leftover summer veggie pizza with a homemade whole wheat crust and an arugula salad with dried cranberries, goat cheese, almonds, and dressed with balsamic vinegar and agave nectar.


Dessert was plain Greek yogurt, dark chocolate pudding mousse, and more Quaker Honey Nut Oatmeal Squares.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Monday, July 2.

  4. When you say "working pace", what does that mean to you? A few notches above comfortable?

    1. good question! yes, a few notches above comfortable is right on. i'm huffing and puffing and wanting to slow down. heart rate up. this is very different from the pace i do for long runs, where i'm comfortable the whole (well most) of the whole time.

  6. Love it! I love the idea of mixing cereal and almonds as a snack. I love those oatmeal squares too but they're too sugary for me to have a whole bowl. Some thrown in with some nuts would be the perfect snackeroo!
