After my late breakfast, I went for a jog/walk – 4 miles in 55 minutes (I think I ran 40 and walked 15 or so). I wish I’d woken up early because it was really hot by 10am (80-90 degrees?). I wore sunscreen and a hat and still got burned – my skin is just super fair. I keep touching my cheeks and they’re still hot 8 hours later….oh well, free blush. I cooled down while reading blogs, and then fixed myself an early lunch since I had to be at my hair appointment by 12:30.
I was craving fruit, so I made of bowl of lowfat plain yogurt, peaches, banana, almonds, and Kashi GOLEAN Crunch cereal.
I sat for almost 3 hours this afternoon for my highlights and trim, and then had a handful of almonds in the car on the way to the mall.
My sister-in-law was supposed to meet me, but she never answered her phone. I perused the sale rack at Anthropologie and tried a few things on, but nothing worked. I get so frustrated being “well-endowed” and short. I realize I can have things altered (and nearly every item I buy ends up going to a tailor) but it gets old…and expensive. I did manage to find a BCBG shirt at Belk for $40 from $138 – gotta love a bargain!
I could get away without altering this one, but it’s sleeveless and an inch off the fabric at the shoulders would make a huge difference. I’ll probably spend the extra $10 or $15….sigh. At least I found something fun though!
I worked up an appetite shopping and wanted something quick when I got home. Decided on a salad with tofu, egg, romaine, carrots, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and TJ’s reduced fat cilantro dressing.
And a slice of rye bread with Earth Balance margarine:
Microwaving it for 30 seconds makes it taste so much better!
Okay, so I’ve been reading a lot about ABU and PBU on various blogs and decided it was time to make some of my own:
1 cup Skippy Natural PB + 2 cups unsweetened almond breeze = PBU
It turned out a little watery, but even watery this stuff is AWESOME! Emily is a genious! I had a Tbsp or so straight off the spoon and also used it to make my breakfast cookie for breakfast tomorrow. I will be dreaming of it tonight for sure. Oh, and the peanut butter spurred a chocolate craving, so I had a few Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips:
YUM! I love dark chocolate because just a little bit satisfies.
Kenan just went psycho – the UPS guy dropped off the P90X DVDs my husband ordered. MAN that was fast! I have to go check these things out…
