#Fitblog time!

I am so excited to get to participate in the #fitblog chat on Twitter tonight. For more info, check out this link: http://katywidrick.com/fitblogchat/

But let’s talk about today first!

For breakfast this morning, I had oats (made with Silk almond milk and water) topped with almond butter and blackberries. It was delicious 🙂

On the way to work, I had to get gas ($2.85/gallon, ugh) which is way too close to a Starbucks. So I got a grande coffee with soymilk.

002

This was good, but I’m realizing more and more that it’s something I can live without. At least I know I don’t “need” it every day. So coffee is going on the backburner for now!

Mid-morning, I snacked on some Peeled Snacks dried apple, which I received for free from the company.

003Even though I did receive them for free, I promise you that I really like these. I like that they aren’t sweetened with anything and that they come in portion controlled bags.

For lunch, I had leftover bbq tofu on a salad 🙂

005

And a banana!

006  Afternoon snack was some vegan jerky. I love these things!

007 I ate my snack kind of early so I got hungry again and decided to drink that carrot juice I didn’t get to last week. I’m so glad I had it!

008

After work, I made a pit stop at Whole Foods and picked up a few things I need for my girl’s night potluck recipe for tomorrow 🙂

Then I drank a refreshing POM + Seltzer.

009

Then I got started on dinner, which included these:

Oh yeah and this too:

I made some refried bean + avocado roll ups with taco sauce 🙂

014 I’m sure I’m not the first person to do this but it made me feel good to sort of “create” something on my own without relying on a recipe.

I also steamed some green beans with a little bit of Smart Balance Light.

After dinner settled and I did the dishes, I was thinking about heading out for my run. But my legs and feet hurt! Like just standing up to do the dishes was rough.

So I decided to skip it and go first thing in the morning. Sometimes you just gotta listen!

Instead of running, I enjoyed a glass of wine…

And a small serving of oat bran with almond butter and chocolate chips (x2)!

019Five more minutes. I’d better get back on Twitter, hope to see some of you there!

When something is telling you to skip a run, do you? Or do you push through it?
