Any special plans?
I have a few -- hints: boys, the city, friends, and a possible 20 miler??
Does it get any better than that??
The theme of this post is simple: CASEY NEEDS TO GO GROCERY SHOPPING.
I had limited supplies for breakfast -- cereal was on it's last leg, I ran out of almond milk, and I had a handful of blueberries left. What's a girl to do?
Throw it in a bowl, smother it in greek yogurt and strawberry preserves and call it a day :)
I discovered my love of Trader Joe Multigrain O's over winter break and I've been hooked ever since! I love that it's a full serving of whole grains (which helps with my never-ending hunger...) in a cup serving AND its about 110 calories -- which means I can go back for multiple refills.
My workout was a lovely and relaxing 10 miler.
It was lightly drizzling as I stepped out of my apartment and it was perfect running weather -- I feel like I zone out when it's rainy because I feel all intense.
Minus the fact that I have to blow my nose in my long sleeves every two steps. yum.
Like I said, continuing with creativity because I'm too lazy to get my butt to the nearest grocery store, I had few options for my midday meal.
I was craving grilled cheese like no other!!
So, I spread guacamole and Laughing Cow lite on two pieces of flax and fiber bread and grilled 'er up! OH MY GOODNESS. The guac is so warm and creamy -- and the cheese gets all melty. I swore I was eating the richest sandwich ever, but it was healthy. that never happens.
Of course I had nanner and crunchy PB on the side
and some hershey's dark chocolate kisses - my latest addiction :)
by the way - does anyone else realize how simply grilling a sandwich totally changes the flavor of the bread?? Or is that just me?
School is school. I'm finally getting used to my schedule and my classes, which is probably a good thing since we're already on week three.
Crew - I realized, as much as I loved it, it wasn't something that I could sustain over a long period without sacrificing the other aspects of my life (i.e. school, friends, work, running...) so, I had to call it quits. On the plus side, I discovered that I like rowing and I surprisingly like the rowing machines! New workouts are always fun!
I had work from 2-5:30 at the gym and by the time Lisa met me on my shift, I was starving.
I guess running will do that to ya...
Since all three of us (Annie joined!) needed to go grocery shopping - as you know - we stopped for dinner before heading to Trader Joe's. It was an easy choice:
I went with my favorite: Vegan Aloo Gobi with Roti (sans butter).
Asking for this dish vegan - even though it's typically a vegan dish - means that they don't add in any extra butter or cream (which oddly enough has happened before), so it's a good way to eat indian food without falling into a coma... which I have a tendency to do as soon as "chicken tikka masala" crosses my mind.
Anyways -- T.Joes was a success.
2 boxes of cookies have already been enjoyed...
as well as some crunchy peanut butter and dark chocolate.
I have some exciting meals planned for this week!!
