141.0…News Flash: Fried Chips Are Not Healthy
Can you smell the weekend?? I can! I can taste the wine in Napa right now…
Before track practice last night I quickly heated up some leftover pasta and sauce for my 4:30pm dinner. Early bird special anyone?
Every Wednesday night I meet my team for our half marathon track practice. It was hard last night! We had to push out of our comfort zone and run faster than it was comfortable doing. By the time I got home, I was pooped. I put some peanut butter on a piece of wheat bread, inhaled it and went to bed.
Breakfast this morning was Fage yogurt, sugar free strawberry jelly swirled in, granola and strawberries:
After taking the kids to school, I drove to a new spot for a 4 mile run. There’s this path alongside this freeway near my house that I’ve always wanted to run. Don’t worry…there’s a gate and a lot of space between the path and the freeway. I always see runners and bikers there so I thought I’d give it a shot today.
Mile 1 – 10:02
Mile 2 – 10:12
Mile 3 – 9:50
Mile 4 – 10:02
I actually pushed myself and ran faster than I should have. There was a hill around miles 2 and 3 and I just kept plugging along at a good clip. I was exhausted when I was done. I think last night already pooped me out and today sealed the deal. Good thing there’s no running on the agenda for tomorrow! Oh and by the way, that path was kind of boring. Running on a straight line and watching cars on the freeway got old quickly.
After cleaning up, I got my nails done and grabbed a quick lunch at Rubio’s. I ordered their Health Mex burrito with grilled veggies. I usually order it with mahi mahi but I thought I’d try the veggie version. It was really good! When my order arrived, there was a huge pile of tortilla chips on my plate with my burrito. Hmmm….I just ordered your healthy option and you serve it with chips? Seems a little counterproductive to me no? I asked what else they had and chose the black beans.
Much better. :) Of course I piled each bite with hot sauce. Check out all my little containers of hot sauce on the table. :)
I went to my wax appointment and picked up the kids from school. I leave for Napa tomorrow and have a list of things to do tonight. AND the hubby wants to take me out to dinner. Need to get cracking!
Have you ever been to Napa, CA?
Have you ever been wine tasting?
