Good Morning and Happy Tuesday Everyone! 🙂
apologies still looking for the more creative and fun intro. . .
It was the overwhelming favorite night in the Jara household last night!
PIZZA NIGHT! And we were finally able to use the pizza stone my brother and sister-in-law gave us for Christmas! I was a little concerned that it would crisp up the crust more than I normally like, but NOPE! It made the crust the perfect balance between crispy and soft, and kept it warm while I took my slow poke time eating :). Success!
We also had a bit of a taste test of sorts for dessert.
For all of my Whole Foods fans, while I was grocery shopping yesterday I decided to pick up a few of their small treats that they keep in the bakery (I believe they’re 9.99 lb). Last night we tried:
- Pistachio shortbread
- Chocolate covered peanut butter sandwich cookie
- Iced lemon cookie
- unpictured chocolate truffle
I love a good dessert bar 🙂
Zach and I disagreed on our favorites, but did agree that the iced lemon was our LEAST favorite of the treats. I had high hopes for it considering I love lemon, but this one was dry and unappetizing. I actually ate a bite than gave my half to Zach.
MY favorite was the pistachio shortbread, as far as flavor and texture goes. Of course I am going to love me some chocolate covered PB, but the shortbread stole the show. Zach’s favorite was the truffle, which was simply a 365 brand dark chocolate truffle they had as free samples.
It was a nice treat for a Monday night.
This Morning/Workout of the Day
I woke up this morning well rested (hello 10 pm bed time) and feeling like I could knock out a run, so that’s exactly what I did.
Workout of the Morning: 40 minute treadmill for 4.26 miles
Todays run looked like:
- 10 minute warm up (6.3 for 5 minutes, 6.4 for 5 minutes)
- 20 minute pyramid from (6.5 increasing every minute until 7.5, then decreasing every minute until back at 6.5)
- Finished out 4 miles at 6.4
- Walked it out until 40 minutes for 4.26 miles
This 40 minute run was followed by a 2 minute plank, than it was off to shower and get ready.
I am so ready to be back from the honeymoon, in the Spring, enjoying miles outside. . . just saying.
Question of the Morning: What do you think YOUR favorite cookie would be?
