142.8 yesterday; Tuna Sandwiches Are Dreamy
I’m back from my quick trip to Los Angeles! I had a great time with my family and it was nice to celebrate my brother’s accomplishment.
Tuesday night’s dinner was pulled out of the freezer: Chicken Bruschetta.
I can’t find the recipe but it was basically baked chicken breasts with a mixture of stuffing and tomatoes on top. I reheated it in the oven and it came out really good! I steamed some broccoli and made a quick salad and dinner was done!
Yesterday morning’s breakfast was an English muffin with peanut butter (the last of my Teddie pb) :( and a side of strawberries:
I took the kids to school and then went for a 3 mile run. It was a hard three miles….it felt more like 30.
Mile 1 – 10:10
Mile 2 – 9:58
Mile 3 – 9:48
Tapering is hard! I think I’m just mentally over running at this point. I really need to just run my 13.1 miles and call it a day. Speaking of running, my sister in law, Stephanie (who is running the half marathon with me), sent me this hilarious video. I could relate to it so well!
After my run, I came home to change, pack and hit the road for the train station. I stopped at Panera Bread for lunch. I had a tuna sandwich. I saved the apple for the train.
My mom picked me up at the train station and we went back to her house. I snacked on a Larabar:
My mom, dad and I went to my brother’s law firm’s first anniversary party held at the Bonaventure Brewery Company in downtown Los Angeles.
The party was held on the patio and it was a beautiful afternoon!
My mom, sister in law Stephanie, my brother, me and my dad. :)
I enjoyed all the delicious appetizers:
Bruschetta, Spicy Tuna Chips, Fried Ravioli and Calamari. I went back for seconds. :) I also had a few glasses of wine. Hey…it was my last wine opportunity until after the race! :)
After the party we came home and I spent the night at my parent’s house.
This morning I got dressed, packed up and my mom and I hit the road for the train station. I brought some toasted raisin bread with peanut butter with me for breakfast.
Note to self: please buy some raisin bread. Delicious with peanut butter.
I grabbed a latte from Starbucks before I boarded the train.
I read my current book “Sarah’s Key” on the train. Boy, that is one depressing book. I really need an uplifting book next.
From the San Diego train station, I went to Costco to get stuff for the party I’m hosting Sunday night. You see…I’ve completely lost my mind. I invited all of our family and friends over for dinner after the race to thank them for their love, support and donations. Who runs a race and then throws a party afterwards!?! Fortunately I’m having it catered. I’m not completely nuts. :)
Along the way, I stopped for lunch at Submarina. Guess what I had??
Another tuna sandwich! It’s by far my favorite sandwich ever!! This one was especially good.
Now I’m home and the kids and I are off to swim lessons. Have a great night!
What’s your favorite sandwich?
Have you read Sarah’s Key? Thoughts?
