And then you know how they always end up "normal" length?
Well, tonight's is going to really be short.
This morning started with Bruegger's: a Skinny Zesty Egg White Sandwich. Unfortunately, this is no longer on the menu, and there weren't any five-grain everything bagels. I was super bummed. The sea salt and cracked pepper bagel just didn't do it for me. And also probably explains why I have been so stinkin' thirsty all day long.
School was fine: nothing super exciting.
I skipped CrossFit today, however, because it was the first day of See-Us Run Des Moines! I was so excited to get back in the groove, and this afternoon did not disappoint. While we didn't do a whole lot of running (maybe a mile total), we had quite a good workout of drills: high knees, butt kicks, karaoke, high skips, push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and lunges. We had a really good turn-out of kids, too, so that made it even better.
It's going to be a good year. :)
After, I came home and noshed on some chips and salsa because I knew Mags and I were going to be doing a late dinner. I also worked on lots of writing - get excited.
I had fully planned on running to Mags' house and walking/running back, but I was too distracted by writing that I missed my planned departure time and figured it'd be too dark by the time we were finished eating to run home safely. So, I drove. Oh well.
Mags cooked a delicious meal:
We had a turkey burger (that was smashed full of mushroom, cilantro, and onion) atop an Ezekiel English muffin and topped with avocado - alongside roasted cabbage that, I swear, could be candy. It was so ridiculously good.
For dessert, we tried something new to both of us:
Frozen kefir. Interestingly, I had just read an article about how kefir is one of the newest super foods. Just check out these nutritional stats:
And the probiotic information:
If you've never tried it, go out and find some frozen kefir. Now.
Dare I say it? It may have been tastier than ice cream.
I know, right?!
After a fabulous dinner and even better conversation with Mags, I headed home, finished up some writing, and am about ready to go crash. Cross your fingers I sleep well tonight: last night I was asleep by 10:30 and then up at 12:30 ready to start my day.
Positive vibes would be much appreciated. K thanks.
Peace out, yo.
