I decided to do something I haven’t done in a while: run outdoors. The weather has been so nice that I knew I needed to get out in it, so I did! It felt amazing.
Number of miles I ran this morning…3.33.
Those triple threes were by complete accident by the way. It was right on the dot upon taking my very last step up to my apartment. Good luck? Let’s hope so.
Number of times I almost got hit by a biker…2.
I don’t know how it is elsewhere, but in my college town, the bikers literally come at you like the above photo. Aka: full speed ahead you better jump out of the way because I own this sidewalk.
I deal with this on a daily basis walking around campus. In the past, I would try to get out of the way by swaying either left or right; but it never.fails. that I end up swaying the same way they decide to sway as well. Yeah…doesn’t end so pretty. So now I usually roll with the “stop moving, stand still, close eyes, and hope for the best” kind of approach. However this method is not 100% full proof either….but I digress.
What I Ate Wednesday Time! Just a few snaps of some recent eats.
dough bowl! Remember these? overnight: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1 packet stevia.
topped with almond butter. so good.
What veggie has been getting a lot of attention from me for lunches lately?
Jicama! I love the crunch and slightly sweet taste it has…it’s like the veggie version of an apple.
turkey avocado mustard spinach wrap, jicama and cukes, goat cheese and crackers
grapes, pumpkin cheesecake loaf (scroll down), cottage cheese
terriaki salmon with veggies and a seasoned english muffin. For the salmon I used my sauce mixture here minus the peanut butter. I pan seared it on the stovetop then finished it in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. I <3 salmon.
pumpkin cheesecake pie with peanut butter and real whipped cream.
So here is the link to that pumpkin cream cheese loaf pictured previously above.
And here are my photos of the big event:
right out of the oven…
cooled, sliced, and put straight into mouth…
My motto for this Fall is…Pumpkin Everything!!! And when I’m not eating pumpkin, i’ll be throwin’ back kabocha slices. Done deal.
My brain needs a break so I’m signing off for the day. Time to relax. Have a great night!
