Wacky Weather

Well as usual on weekend, I have been busy and away from my computer. So I'm just getting to write about Friday and Saturday.

For Breakfast (while driving to work) I had and english muffin with 1 tbsp White Chocolate Peanut Butter from Peanut Butter & Company and a little strawberry jam. I also had ice coffee.

Around 10am I had grapes:

I left work around noon to go work from home and wait for furniture to be delivered. Steve met me and we picked up sushi from our favorite Chinese place China Palace. I had the vegetarian sushi platter that came with miso soup and a salad.

I took a run (about 4.25 miles) at 4pm and it was almost 90 degrees out, so this was a super hard run for me, because I'm not used to running in the middle of the day in the hot, humid weather. The heat of the run took away my hunger.

At 6pm I stopped at my mom's house to pick up Sophie (who spent the day playing with her dogs). Mom offered to make me dinner, but I still wasn't hungry. I did have a small piece of no sugar added berry pie that my mom picked up from the local farmer's market.

I ate dinner around 8pm, and just had some oatmeal with baked apples and a yogurt. Steve had MBA class (his Prof made him make up Labor Day's class Friday night) so I was alone for dinner.
A little later I had some quaker chocolate snacks and a small spoon of peanut butter.


For breakfast Steve made some great blueberry pancakes (whole wheat) which I topped with a mixture of maple syrup and peanut butter microwaved for 30 seconds.

For lunch I had a piece of leftover impossible pie (see Thursday's post) and some baked chips, pretzels, and tomato.

I also had a 100 Calorie Pack of chocolate prezels. I don't normally get 100 Calorie Packs because 1) no nutritional value, and 2) they do not help me feel full. But I love chocolate covered prezels, so these were a nice addition to my lunch.

I had a snack of prezels, baked chips, and 2 crackers around 4pm:

Around 6pm I ran the entire North Park lake with no walking breaks (4.7 miles) and although yesterday I ran and it was almost 90 degrees, today it was a nice cool 65 degrees.

For dinner I made the Vegan Lasagna from the FatFree Vegan Blog. I used whole wheat lasagna noodles I found at Target. This is the second time I made this, and I love it. Steve loves it too.

Here is my piece.

I also had a piece of toast with Trader Joe's bruchetta mix and a piece of soy cheese, but no picture because my camera died.

Off to get ready to go to the Steelers game and then Wicked the musical.
