I had such a wonderful weekend, I am not ready to go back to work! Last night we went to Barrielicious. We made a reservation at the FarmHouse and tried their special 3 courses dinner (for 25$)! Everything is home cooked and grown...
I had the flatbread with chips and dip (with mushroom, sundried tomatoes and feta) as an appetizer - that was big! I chose the crispy local trout (grilled with herbs) and a salad. Jeff had the ribs and fries. We shared the fries! And, finally, I treat myself with the chocolate torte gluten free pecan crust - certainly not calorie free! Absolutely delicious!!!
I ended up over range by a bit .... beside the fries and desert, the culprits are my glass of red wine and the beer after dinner. I am ok with that - I don't really have cheat days, I know it will balance out in a few days!
It rained all night and the sky was still covered when I got up... but I was determined to go for my run regardless. I drove to the lake and drop my gear at the yoga studio. Who cares about rain when you get to sweat for 75 min in a hot yoga room after!
Running is hard now. My left IT band is still very still and causing me some discomfort. I can't go at my regular pace, but it is improving.
I really like running outside. The trail at the lake is flat and quiet in the morning. I saw a female blue jay and 2 tiny bright yellow finches! There was also a few snails... I ran 8k in 38 min. The yoga felt great after that.
I came back home, had lunch (wheat toast with cheddar, tomato and hard boiled pickled egg), vacuum and cleaned and went for a round of golf with Jeff. My play is improving... I even made it over the pond this time!
We had a nice dinner (chicken, baked potato and carrots) and I made a new salad.
I shared my recipe on spark - Zucchini and beet salad. (I pickle my own beets. ) recipes.sparkpeople.com/
I have lots of left over...
One serving is 56 cal! and that will be my lunch for tomorrow...
Speaking of tomorrow, I have to get back to reality - it is Sunday night so time to prep my lunch bag, my uniform, my gym bag and my 2 bottles of water! Then, bedtime - I am working on getting some zzz ...
