Weekly Food and Workout Round Up August 9, 2013

Good Morning and HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE 🙂

Since Friday’s are generally my rest days, and the lead in to the weekend, I figured I could use Friday mornings as my time to recap the highlights, and lowlights, of my food and work outs for the week.

Since food is my favorite, let’s start with that.

 

Food Highlights

Meals

Homemade Pizza, and last nights tomato and moz salad. The warm, flavorful pizza went perfectly with the fresh, cool salad!

The entire meal from last Friday’s date night

Open face sammies, toast, or really anything that came from that amazing farmer’s market bread.

Chicken quesadilla from the Food Truck at Denver Brew Co. Probably the best I’ve ever had.

My girls night dinner!  Wine, snacks, and pulled pork.  Y-U-M-M-O.

And a surprisingly fresh salad from Sprouts, our local grocery store.

Favorite Snacks

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies.  They were our treat through the week and they were AMAZING

My first shot at Peanut Butter Granola .  Unfortunately I’m finishing it off as we speak.

The Garretts popcorn from our lovely Chicago Friends.

The cake from Ladies Night…doesn’t look good, but my god that Key Lime was to die for.

 

LowLights

I got this scone yesterday as a quick breakfast after our final walk through, and honestly didn’t even eat a quarter of it.  It’s from Starbucks, and there were honestly probably 4 blueberries in the whole thing.  Total Disappointment.

They were out of my favorite Wallaby granola this morning, so I had to go back to my yoplait, sugar bomb unfortunately.  Really doesn’t taste bad, just does nothing for my hunger.

 

I’m hungry just looking at all that. YUM.

 

Workouts for the Week

I was able to stay pretty darn true to my workouts for the week this week, as planned, which always makes me feel good 🙂

  • Monday’s outdoor run – 5.7 miles
  • Tuesday’s strength day
  • Wednesday’s Speed treadmill run – 4.76 miles
  • Thursday’s 60 minute stationary bike ride (20 miles)

Pretty good!  Today is my rest day, and then tomorrow I have a 90 minute run planned.  As always, I’m a bit anxious for it, but hopeful that I can push through 🙂  I had some strong work outs this week, so I’m happy about that!

Question of the Day:  How were your workouts this week?  Any long run planned this weekend?
