Let me backtrack a little. Yesterday afternoon we decided to walk over to our favorite local Vietnamese restaurant for lunch/dinner.
I got BBQ pork with broken rice...my favorite. So tasty

There is another inspection at work this week but they did not come into the lab today. I do still have to get through Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Since I leave at 2pm, I may just miss them.
When I got home this afternoon, I had a bit of baking to do. I made some Banana Chocolate Chip Vitamuffins form my husband's breakfasts:
Then I baked some Espresso Chocolate Chunk cookies for him to take to his friend's house tomorrow night for the model car guys meeting:
For dinner tonight he had chicken sausages and I had a Smartdog. I put some mustard, relish and pico de gallo on it. A very tasty combination. I also had a few Kettle Tias salsa flavor tortilla chips (not pictured):
All in all, a very good Monday.
Have a great night!

Boy, my chest and inner thighs were pretty sore on Saturday.
It was a busy day at work and I was quite glad when the day was over.
We went out for dinner at our local Mexican-owned Chinese Restaurant.
Snow peas with water chestnuts, Chinese broccoli with BBQ pork, tofu with mushrooms and beef fried rice. Very tasty :-)
Saturday we took my husband's Grandma out to lunch. I didn't get a picture but I had a falafel plate...I'm sure you're not surprised.
Then we cleaned up around the house and I changed the sheets and towels in the guest bedroom and bathroom. My oldest nephew came to spend the night. He is working at UC Davis over the summer and went to a concert near us so we invited him to stay.
My brother came over and we all had brunch before my nephew headed back to Davis. It was nice to see him...it's been a while.
My husband and I did our long run. It was supposed to be 5 miles but we ended up going 6.1 (according to the Sparkpeople run mapper...it was 7.76 according to my Polar GPS...I think it has a problem). Either way, we definitely covered more distance than we should have. Next week we're supposed to do a 2.5 mile run...I think we'll use the track.
I h\ope everyone is having a great weekend!
I got up and my head felt pretty good. Not quite 100% but good enough to run. I tried out the Superfeet insoles. I think they help. My right shin had been a little sore before but felt good today. My knees felt pretty good. The left one is a little irksome but it's the one that seems most affected by my arthritis. I will try wearing my Cho-pat knee strap for my long run and see if it helps.
Very busy day at work. Samples to run. Things to order. Meetings to go to. I did need a couple of extra cups of coffee for the headache. Boo!
I baked some molasses cookies for a friend's birthday:
Trying to figure out what to have for dinner since my husband will be going out. Probably an Amy's frozen dinner...perhaps something Indian.
Have a great night.
Tomorrow is Friday....I certainly am looking forward to it.
I got up this morning with a slight migraine and figured I might as well do my workout.

By the time I was finished I felt really horrible so I called in (emailed in, actually) sick. Went back to bed for a few more hours and felt a lot better. It's been on and off all day. Boy do I hate migraines.
I did get some laundry done and I went to the chiropractor.
We had a Trader Joe's night for dinner:
jalapeno chicken sausages and Cuban black beans sauteed with bell pepper and onion over some whole wheat couscous. Some cucumbers on the side. Very tasty.
I'm going to head to bed soon. Hope the migraine is totally gone in the morning. I've got a run planned and a busy day at work.
No, I didn't run this morning. Soooooo tired.
Busy day at work, but no complaints. I'd rather be doing something.
I fired up the treadmill this afternoon and got in 3.1 miles. My knees have been a little sore on and off all day. I don't know what they're problem is. They were the same while running. Seems like arthritis. Maybe they don't like the heat. I forgot to try my Superfeet insoles today. I'll have try them on Thursday's run. My arches are feeling much better so whatever the problem was, it may be resolved.
For dinner we had chicken kabobs and bell pepper/onion kabobs with some hummus (not pictured) and since I didn't have any pita, I used a Ozery One Bun for hot dogs. Very tasty.
Tomorrow I will get up in the morning for my CLX workout because I have a chiropractor appointment in the afternoon. Now since you will hold me to it, I will definitely do it.
Better get to bed soon.
Have a great night!
