Good morning dudes…I don’t think I’ve ever blogged this late. Being a g’ma, it’s often hard enough just to find me up past midnight :).
Brekkie was especially delish this morning thanks to the tag team of champions: yogurt mess + Heart Thrive:
Sorry Heart Thrive peeps…the Cranberry is BY FAR my least favorite.
However, my snack more than made up for it. A homemade concoction of Banana Nut Cheerios + sunflower seeds a.k.a the ying (sweet) and the yang (salty). Makes for maximum satisfaction.
I can’t believe I have totally forgotten to tell you how WELL my first week at the new job went. My boss is fantastic. My co-workers are incredibly helpful and funny. And there is minimal scanning involved in the job. Give it up!
Shoutout to my homegirl Alison who recently had her first Chipotle and obv, loved it!
Friday flew by and before I knew it, I was done with my first week of work. Woowoo! Then, I skedaddled on to my new flat (yes, I want to be British so I am calling it “my flat”) to whip up a quick dindin before hitting the road BACK across the border to Minnesota for a wedding.
This bugger was delish! Also quite easy to make: I sauteed lots of kale in EVOO + garlic (ends up tasting a lot like Kath’s “Kale Chips” – which if you haven’t tried, you must!) then stufffed it in an Ezekiel tortilla and topped with a Morningstar Spicy Black Bean Burger. Voila! Dinner is served.
Not without some frozen applesauce for dessert of course…
Insert 4-hr. car ride here, including snacks:
I had maybe 1/2 the zucchini and 2-3 tbsp. of the AB…about?
After I finally arrived back in the Minneapolis, I met up with my besties for some drinks at the bar where our other bestie works. Quite vague details, I know. However, I had a slight headache and was uber-tired from the drive (anybody else MORE tired from driving than actually working out and doing something active?), so I munched on some bar popcorn (a couple cups?) and just chatted. Drinks before a 16-mile run doesn’t sound like a good idea to me.
Tomorrow’s agenda: run, shower, IKEA run and then wedding time! Woowoo!
Good night y’all and again, it’s good to be back :)
