140.8…Wine for a good cause

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?


  1. You and your hubby look like like a good couple! Cardio Muscle class? I have never heard of the combination of the two! sounds fun! Nice Miles! They're still good miles times AND your second one was faster than your first!


  2. Have I told you I LOVE your hair? oh I do! lots =)

    Healthy eats galore AND wine for a good cause? fabulous! <3

  3. Anna and Jennifer...Thanks for the sweet compliments! :)

  4. I don't mind Mondays...I despise Tuesday!

    Yay for your run! And what a great pic of you and your hubby!

  5. You look fabulous in the picture!

    Great job on the run + exercise class in one day. I think that deserves an extra glass of wine tonight, don't you? :-)

  6. I am a slow runner too - nothing wrong with that!

    My sister has three kids at three different schools - crazy!

    And drinking wine for a good cause is always a good thing :D
