Happy Monday! I actually like Mondays….kids are back in school, the house gets picked up and I like to get the week started by eating healthfully.
Before last night’s school fundraiser even, I made a turkey & low fat Swiss cheese sandwich so I wouldn’t be starving when I arrived.
Our school fundraiser was held in downtown San Diego at Vin de Syrah. Did I mention wine? Oh yeah….
…plus about 3 more. :) It’s all for a good cause right?
The food was delicious. There was a buffet of all sorts of Mediterranean delights!
I had a second plate after this. Fortunately the plates were small. My snack did hold me over though, I promise. :)
Hubby and I:
I shared some dessert with the husband:
I went back for a second black & white cookie. I had a great time while helping out the school. It’s a win, win!
I did mention healthy eating right? I’ve been a good girl today. Breakfast was Special K Vanilla Almond cereal with almond milk and some cantaloupe:
Hubby took the kids to school and I went to Cardio Muscle class. It was a fabulous workout. I love my Monday class.
After class I ran to Trader Joe’s to load up on veggies and fruit. I also met with someone from Team in Training who is going to decorate my team shirt for a donation. I am the least creative person ever and can use all the help I can get in that department.
Lunch was a turkey & Swiss wrap. I spread a Laughing Cow cheese wedge on the wheat tortilla and loaded it with cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes and coarse grain mustard. I had some veggies and hummus with it:
I picked up my daughter from school and had some tangerines when I got back:
After picking up my son (I’ll be glad when they are eventually at the same school), I had a piece of wheat toast with Better N Peanut Butter to fuel up for my little training run.
According to my training schedule, I was supposed to do “2 easy miles” so that’s what I did.
Mile 1 – 11:20
Mile 2 – 10:41
Ladies and Gentlemen….I am a slow runner. Fortunately Team in Training could care less about my speed….thank goodness for I am a snail. All I need to do is cross the finish line right?
Are you a fan of Mondays or do you dread them?
