Pretty standard eating went down up in herrrre today.
A banana burger for breakfast (with peanut butter and a sliced frozen banana sprinkled with cinnamon).
Salad beast for lunch, followed by a sexy little Vitatop for dessert.
And if you like me on Facebook, you may have seen me profess my love for salad beasts today. They last forever! Normally I am a super fast eater, but salads typically take longer for me to eat, especially when I throw so much random stuff into my salads. This is alllllright with me, because I feel like I can stretch my salad out to last me into the afternoon, and then there isn’t a lot of downtime before my afternoon snack! (an apple today) Less downtime = more eating time. Win win.
And for dinner…
Pulled pork with barbecue sauce on a whole wheat sandwich thin, and steamed broccoli on the side. I was home at 5:30, and with the help of my trusty crock pot, dinner was on the table by 6. Excellent.
Today is really the first day since last week that I’ve felt like I’m back in my regular eating routine. Nothing crazy, and nothing fancy, but generally good eats all around.
Last night after dinner, Ando convinced me to skip my run and check out Heber Downs, a conservation area that is pretty darn close to our house. Neither of us had been there before, and since it is so close and we never really hear anything about it, I expected it to be kind of ghetto… I was picturing just a big field.
Not the case! I was pretty impressed with this place, it had various trails that totaled about 7km. Not too shabby!
We took the main trail that is 2.5k, and then another trail which was just under 2.5k, so a bit less than 5k in total.
It was a great little urban adventure, and at times I felt like I was in serious bush.
Camera fail. This camera takes better under water pictures than it does on land…
Not as good of a workout as running, but I am loving squeezing these little hikes in. It makes me feel like I am in the wilderness .
Right now though, I am off to RUN! Catcha lata!
Do you ever take advantage of your local conservation areas?
