Man yesterday was a tough day for me to get out of bed! Like I said I was in desperate need of a pick-me-up so I went on over to the Starbucks and got a Venti Iced Hazelnut Latte. I adore these things and often switch between a vanilla one or a hazelnut one.
That and an apple filled me up until lunch time when my stomach started to rumble. I haven’t had chicken salad since last year before I gave up meat, so I went and got a chicken salad club. It was really good but I ended up picking off all the tomatoes and the extra slice of bread, plus the bacon didn’t add anything to the sandwich so perhaps I’ll just get a chicken salad next time! Also the fries were ok, but I’m so spoiled with the boyfriend making smiles that they just didn’t do anything for me.
After work I headed over to the gym, I needed to get a long run in to make myself feel comfortable that I’ll be able to do the Boilermaker in July. I ended up going 6 miles on the treadmill, which was SO boring and I let my mind get the best of me so I didn’t have a great time. I did it in 1 hour and 3 minutes which is a lot slower than if I had been running outside, but it was pouring rain and I needed to keep the running shoes dry so the treadmill was the only choice. The playlist I used is below.
A tad sappy and off topic but Same Love is such a beautiful song. I get emotional every time I hear it. If you haven’t heard it I would suggest you check it out here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlVBg7_08n0
When I got back to the apartment I was greeted with a ton of kisses from the kitty, apparently he missed his mommy yesterday and then in the kitchen the boyfriend was making me buffalo chicken because that is all I had been talking about eating.
I quickly showered then met him in the kitchen to throw together a salad as well as some sauteed vegetables trying to eat all of them before they go bad. The vegetables turned out to be a skillet version of ratatouille and was so good, the recipe is below.
- 1 Medium Zucchini
- 10 Baby Portabella Mushrooms
- 1 Tomato
- 1/2 White Onion
- 1 TB Olive Oil
- 1 TB Gourmet Garden Garlic
- Salt to taste
Perhaps down the line I’ll get the boyfriend to do a guest post with all his grilling and cooking tips, because when he does make food it is phenomenal.
