This is how I ended yesterday’s post when I wrote it. I needed it to be a good day. I planned for it to be a good. You know what?
It was a really good day!
I had coffee with a couple of girl friends and got caught up. I got a few errands in. I had lunch with my mom. Ran a few more errands.
Then the best part of the day happened. The Part that made it a really Great Day!! I planned to run for 25 minutes. One minute longer than the last time. I didn’t get a run in since Friday, so I wasn’t sure how it would go. I ran for 30 minutes!! Yep. At 25, I decided to go for another minute, then I just kept adding them. I had figured that if I ran for 30 minutes at the pace I was going (5 mph) I would get in 2.5 miles!! So I did! I felt great. I could have probably just ran the three miles, which is kind of freaking me out. I was on the treadmill, so hopefully the weather will cooperate so I can get a chance to run three miles outside before our 5K on April 12th in Dallas!!
Day 2’s eats…….
Coffee at home with Skim Milk and Cinnamon
First Watch with Friends
Steel Cut Oats with 2 T. PB2 Powder from home
Lunch at Le Peep Restaurant with Mom
Egg White Omelet with Chicken, Cheese
(I asked for HALF the cheese)
Veggies and Avocado, Fruit
(It came with Toast. I did not eat it.)
Dinner at home
4 oz. Turkey Burger
with 1/2 oz. Goat Cheese and Caramelized Red Onions
2 oz. Sweet Potato Fries, Chopped Salad
For the salad, I roasted 1 C. of edamame, 1 C. of corn, chopped red onions, chopped butternut squash, 1 minced garlic clove, sea salt and 1 T. of Olive Oil at 400 for about 20 minutes.
I let that cool, then put it in a bowl.
Then I added a chopped tomato and a little lime juice and a little more Sea Salt. I chopped up Romaine lettuce, added the roasted veggies, topped that with Salsa and 2 T. of Light Sour Cream, then chopped it all up. The roasted veggies would have made a great side dish alone, but I was trying to bulk it up and get a few more veggies in!
The Salad made 4 servings.
One Serving = 3 PPV
Sweet Potato Fries
I cut my potatoes, drizzle with Olive Oil and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Spray a baking sheet with Cooking Spray and Bake the fries at 400 for 35 minutes, turning over fries half way through cooking time. I like to weigh my fries for an accurate PPV. I ate about half of a medium size potato.
Dinner Total = 10 PPV
