Meals Like Home

A surprisingly busy day for a Sunday!

If you saw my Twitter feed, then you know that I went to the track! 3 miles, alternating walking and jogging. It took me a little less than 48 minutes. I was just happy that I got out there – I woke up unmotivated. Even when I got to the track after dragging myself there, I wanted to stop after the first mile. And then the second mile. But I finished all three – that was the biggest accomplishment!

After the track I got cleaned up and met my friend PBP for lunch and a movie! We went to Potbelly and I got a salad. And then had a cookie which was offered from PBP. They were mini-size and I said yes! And I don’t feel a bit guilty about it. The salad was really good – it has artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, and chickpeas!

The movie – Precious. Um, wow. I really liked it, but…it’s hard to say “I liked it” because the subject matter is so utterly heartbreaking and devastating…but there are bright moments. And it was incredibly acted by everyone. The movie makes you feel and I think that’s a sign of a movie well done.

After the movie I went back over to my friend’s new condo to help paint some more (and thought ahead and brought my own dinner again, or else it would have been round 3 of pizza!), and now I’m finally home and ready for bed!

Water = 120oz!

PS – Yesterday I totally forgot about the abs challenge I added…and didn’t do it today either. Meh. I’m rebelling.


*half cup cottage cheese

*from Potbelly: veggie salad with no cheese, no tomatoes, with their low-fat vinaigrette
*1 mini oatmeal chocolate chip cookie (my friend bought a bag of dozen of them and gave me one)


*cup of veggie crunchers (okay, plus maybe a few more I took from the bag…)


*salad: spinach, garlic&herb chicken, half a gala apple diced, ¼ of an avocado sliced

3 miles is great!

Say what?? Potbelly has salads that include artichokes and roasted red peppers? Might just have to be my lunch out this week! Love a salad that has extra low cal yumminess added in!

Great job on the 3 miles. I am so not going to see Precious, I have a feeling I'd be a blubbering mess of tears and tissues. No matter how good people say it is...I'm a rebel (or hate to cry)
