(Better late than never! This entry references Tuesday, August 13th.)
Yet another rainy day in the ‘burgh. Upon waking up, I dreaded the thought of walking to the bus amidst the type of weather conditions we had last night. Around 7PM, driving down Centre Ave, I nearly had to pull off the road the rain was coming down so hard. Lovely.
Somehow, it ended up not actually being rainy this morning, just perpetually gray, cloudy, and miserable. Yay!
For breakfast, I had two pieces of Ezekiel toast, one with almond butter and jam and the other with almond butter and fresh fruit.
After hopping a bus into town, I tackled my messy desk. I don’t think I have previously mentioned my profession – I am a tax accountant. I know, I know, living the dream 🙂
This morning, I snacked on a chocolate chip Z-bar.
For lunch, I had the summer standard – whole wheat pita, greens, hummus, goat cheese, and avocado. On the side I had some baked tortilla chips.
As my day continued to crawl, The Boy and I exchanging emails professing how much we are looking forward to London and Wales. We are headed there at the end of August for a wedding – should be fun!
After work, I rushed home and changed into my night-time uniform; gym shorts, sports bra, tank. I sat on the couch and contemplated my options: indoor run or outdoor run? I had half a banana with almond butter as I pondered this.
I finally got my butt moving and ran outside! There was a light drizzle happening, but nothing horrible. I did 3 miles in about 35 minutes. This included some walk breaks. Not too bad.
For dinner, I made a quesadilla. One whole wheat tortilla, low fat cheddar cheese, roasted corn from TJs (one of my favs, in the frozen section), and mango salsa. I had a few baked tortilla chips on the side.
After dinner, I watched Real Housewives of Atlanta (Comcast finally gets Bravo! Woohoo! Actually, this is probably bad for me, as it brings more trash reality TV into my life. Yet, I think I am rightfully excited that I can now watch Top Chef). I had small bowl of vanilla soy ice cream with berries and coconut.
Around 11PM, I finally crashed out. Night night Tuesday.
