Hello! How’s your Tuesday?!
I am so excited about my lunch later today…mainly because it’s exactly what I had yesterday. Oh, and Sunday too. Because again, that’s just how I roll.
Beautiful readers, meet pasta bowl. Pasta bowl, meet my beautiful readers 🙂
The sauce is a basic store-bought marinara that I pumped full of fabulous veggies: zucchini, yellow squash, tomato, red onion, garlic. And a little chicken sausage, heat through, and serve over your favorite pasta. My favorite cut of pasta is gemelli, so I boiled a pound of it for Nate and I to share for lunch for the next couple of days 🙂
I had a great run yesterday too! I haven’t really shared a lot about my workouts lately, but I’ve been working on trying not to do a heel-strike when I run. This is (from the small amount of research I’ve done) one of the first steps of barefoot running (please note that I have no intentions of ever running barefoot, but want to work up to running in Vibrams once we can afford them – anyone want to get me a great deal on them?!?!). I’m still doing it in my shoes, but I’m trying to acclimate the many, many muscles in my feet to get used to running that way. All that to say I’ve been doing this for several months, just a little bit at a time, and have not felt any knee pain ever since. I’ve also been able to work myself up to the equivalent of 30 minutes of running in 1.5 minute increments. Fun fun!
After the great workout we started driving home, only to find ourselves in the worst bit of SOUL-SUCKING TRAFFIC I think I’ve ever been in. We were certain there were cars all over the highway, a semi had blocked off all traffic, or the apocalypse was upon us. It just HAD to be one of those things!
An hour and 2 miles later we found out that they were just filling in a pothole.
Not cool, Boulder County, NOT cool.
We got home, Nate grabbed a beer, and I grabbed a spoon and went to town on some cobbler:
Dinner was half of a small thin-crust pizza, and I loved every bite! Why don’t I eat pizza more often? I mean, I know I eat it a couple times a week, but…why don’t I eat it more often? 🙂
I’m about to get my WillPower & Grace on then get ready for work, but in the meantime: What are some of your biggest pet peeves? Go on, let loose! I HATE TRAFFIC, but I also hate the sound of people picking at their fingernails/toenails, nails on a chalkboard, and when someone uses ‘your’ instead of ‘you’re’ and vice-versa. SHIVERS!
