Kidding... I'll probably be icing my sore butt for the next few days. Although, I did make it to the stretching room at work to take full advantage of the foam rollers -- hurts. so. good.
On my run, I kept thinking about that inspirational picture/quote, which is probably why I actually pushed myself to tackle those extra
Anyways, after my run I was ready to re-fuel.
I seriously need to figure out how to eat, drink, and run simultaneously. I get super weak around mile 9 but I never carry any fuel with me... big oops.
All I wanted was water. And a monster salad.
Sauteed tomatoes and onions on top of leftover butternut squash with chicken sausage and marinara -- piled on a head of romaine lettuce! with feta and banana peppers.
I'm still using my large mixing bowls to accommodate my equally large appetite... I'm waiting for the day when I have to start using two bowls (or a huge pot...). When that day comes, don't judge.
I also had my carbies to refuel.
Two baby pumpkins and two pieces of toast. kidding. Although.... I wouldn't be surprised if that shows up on the blog in the near future, given my recent history with all-things-pumpkin.
Two slices of honey wheat toast with honey and cinnamon.
Work was quick and painless.
Except it was more like -- less quick and more painless
I DID however, have major craving for more salad. And carbs. And I know of only one place that has them both... available in Casey-approved portions.
Veggie delight salad with avocado, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, hard boiled egg, sprouts, baby tomatoes, croutons, carrots, cabbage, mixed lettuce and soy-ginger vinaigrette. HUGE HUNK OF HONEY WHOLE WHEAT BREAD and butter.
I enjoyed this salad with a side of great company -- thanks, Annie.
I typically send her text messages until she responds with a "yes, Casey, I'll go get food with you..." sometimes, I resort to knocking on her door until she gives up and answers.
Most of the time, she caves without a fight because I bribe her with FROZEN YOGURT.
She loves froyo about 80 percent as much as I do -- which I kind of a lot.
Luckily, there are 9 different froyo/ice cream places within walking distance of this salad/bread heaven... so we chose the one a few doors down (to minimize our cardio vascular exercise and decrease any chance to burn extra calories...)
Red Velvet, Coconut, Death by Chocolate FroYo topped with pretty much anything I could get my hands on -- chocolate rocks, mochi, oreo crumbs, cookie dough, brownie bits, cereal, almonds....
Check out my hot date for the evening:
Annie. Lisa (unpictured due to unforeseen circumstances...) and Elizabethtown -- one of the cutest/greatest movies ever.
It's laundry day in the Annie-Lisa household.
Hence, the tie dye cutoffs and the peacoat....
Although, what prompted her to buy those cutoffs in the first place... I have no answer for you.
I'm off to bed!
And I'm super excited for tomorrow because I'm meeting up with a long lost friend for brunch hopping. Details and an explanation to come later :)
