Today’s goal was to run early before breakfast. I’m trying to start running earlier as we start getting into the Florida heat. I didn’t actually make it out the door until 9:30. I have a habit of having my coffee first thing, of course, and then straightening up the house before I go out to do anything. I ate half a protein bar before my run for a little fuel. I ran a total of 1.8 miles, 1.4 of them without walking, yay! I’m getting there. Also did 90 crunches and 30 push ups. then I had breakfast:
I used about 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters egg whites, and microwaved for 2 minutes. You have to try this, it’s so easy, fast, and no pans to dirty. Then I topped them with salsa and hot sauce. On the side, a slice of rye bread with blackberry jam.
I had some lunch before heading to work in the afternoon to meet with a bride.:
I used my leftover grilled chicken and couscous, and dumped it into the last of my brushetta with Italian dressing. I love re-purposing leftovers. I hate, hate, hate to waste food! After work, I picked up a couple of things at the grocery store, then promptly made dinner. I usually wait for hubby to get home, but I just couldn’t do it. I was hun-gray!
Turkey tacos with whole wheat shells. I didn’t use a sodium laden taco season pack for these babies. I found everything I needed in my spice cabinet: Chili powder, cumin, cayenne, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and a dash of Lite salt:
“Contains 50% less sodium than regular salt. Lite Salt™ Mixture is a salt and potassium chloride blend* with iodide and a free-flowing agent. Excellent for baking, cooking and at-the-table seasoning with the same great results as regular salt.” (http://www.mortonsalt.com/products/foodsalts/Lite_Salt.htm) It tastes like real salt to me.
And for dessert:
Same thing as last night. So dang good!!
