Happy Sunday! It’s been a lazy weekend for Miko, lots of lounging and sleeping between long walks.
It was a bit of a traumatic weekend for Leela, I found a huge tick on her neck that I had to remove. Poor sweetie was a good little patient and got a handful of coconut treats after.
Boo on the weekend being almost over, I have a bit of the Sunday blues after many busy weeks in a row at work. I treated myself to a great lunch Friday at Baagan of my favorite jalapeno chana chickpea wrap.
And a great oatmeal raisin cookie from Alternative Baking Company.
We also stepped out for a great spicy Thai dinner.
This sweet and sour tofu dish with cucumbers was delicious!
Of course we stopped to Grocery Outlet after the gym Saturday where I loaded up on discounted very ripe organic bananas.
And found other fun goodies to try.
I prepared this tasty Near East quinoa blend I scored for dinner with a can of organic kidney beans.
It took about 20 minutes to cook, but made a tasty and hearty dinner.
This morning I had a sweet, chocolaty pre-run smoothie with Chocolate Vega Protein and Greens, hemp seeds, greens, carrots, and frozen banana.
Great fuel for a decent 7-mile easy run before it started getting too hot.
I felt pretty good after this run and a 3.34 mile run at the gym yesterday, but still adjusting to more weekly running workouts and the minor aches and pains as I find a good rhythm to balance them in. I should be up to 5 runs a week by the end of this month rotating pace, workouts, and shoes. Hopefully I can stay injury free!
I topped a simple plate of organic greens with the chilled kidney bean quinoa leftovers for a hearty post run meal.
And will be stepping out with hubby to have a fun evening before facing another busy work week. It’s been a great week of runs, a trying week at work, and has got us thinking we need to plan another fun vacation soon to look forward to. I did have some time to do a little reading and put together a fun and inspiring list!
How was your week?
