One Mile Run & Weekend Snapshots

Last week I had to get a few stitches on my leg so I haven't been able to work out. Today is the first day I've been able to run so I did a 1 mile jog in the rain. Very slow but getting faster!

Here are a few shots from my Memorial Day weekend:

WIAW: Cutting Out the Sugar

Lately I’ve been eating way too much sugar(bread, donuts, bagels, ice cream) and this week I’m making an effort to cut back on the treats and add more veggies to my diet. As always, thanks to Peas and Crayons¬†for hosting WIAW. Here are my eats from yesterday:

Pre-run: tropical nuun

Breakfast: two fried eggs, iced coffee and some mini Brie

Lunch: a salad from TJ’s, sparkling water and some sugar-free jello

Dinner: garlic chicken sausage, brussel sprouts with bacon, wine, manchego, pecorino romano….the half eaten cookie isn’t mine!

WIAW: Too Much Cheese

It’s What I Ate Wednesday again! These are my eats from yesterday…

Breakfast – key lime chobani flip + iced coffee

Lunch – tuscan white bean and prosciutto salad at LPQ + more coffee

Yesterday was free cone day at Ben and Jerry’s so obviously I had to stop in there. I ended up getting the Liz Lemon flavor, which is a lemon Greek frozen yogurt with a blueberry lavender swirl. SO GOOD. Definitely worth waiting in line for 10 minutes.
Some jelly beans before my run. Because the ice cream wasn’t enough sugar for the day? I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

Dinner – egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin + salad with TJ’s pear champagne dressing

Dessert – way too much wine, cheese and pickles
