A great way sometimes to make some food that you have even better? Accessorize it!
Last week, two of my friends at work and I walked 3/4 of a mile to Whole Foods. Its where I bought my Chia seeds and visited the salad bar to make my lunch way better! I had some leftover taco meat + one tortilla, and no veggies, so while I was at Whole Foods, I hit the salad bar and for $2.25 I really made my lunch healthy!
I love my Whole Foods. If I ever win the lottery, I would love to do my weekly grocery shopping there!
But, back to my lunch!
I got edamame, shredded carrots, mixed greens, peas, corn and red onions and chick peas.
I just mixed in some of my leftover taco meat and voila, a yummy lunch! I also had some salsa which I poured on top too. Since I only had one tortilla, I decided just to break it up into my taco salad.
So guess what I did during my lunch today?? I ran a 5k!! My friend and I decided to start running 3 days a week. As some of you know, I’ve run 2 marathons + lots of half marathons, but once you stop running, its like starting all over! I have no endurance right now! In preparation, I did jog on Saturday. And it doesn’t help I’m running with a girl in my office who is a lot lighter than me and 13 years younger!
But, I surprised myself. Maybe because I was running with someone. But we ran the first 5 blocks without stopping. I did think I was going to die a couple of times, but after a little bit, I felt much better. After we got back, I did mapquest to see how far we had run. 1.65 miles each way!
So, we’ll see what the scale says this Friday! Wish me luck!!
