Well, hello there September! I am happy to see you, even though it’s always a bittersweet time of year for me. I love the fall but as you know, with fall comes shorter days and inevitably, winter. However, fall is still my favorite season, and with this new month I will be bringing my running game back.
I have to. I’m signed up for the Army 10 miler and I need to get my butt in gear. I haven’t run more than 5 miles since 4th of July weekend. After my first half marathon I got burned out and lost my love for running. I started walking more, doing shorter interval type workouts and have included a lot more strength training over these past few months and I’m really satisfied with the way I’ve been feeling. Honestly, I haven’t missed being in pain and stressing out over run times either. However, I need to cross that finish line pain and injury free, so my mileage will be increasing again starting this weekend, slowly and steady.
Ok … on to dinner.
We didn’t do any shopping since we were away this past weekend so our kitchen is a little sparse. I called Dennis on my way home and did the whole “What do you wanna do for dinner?” thing, but when I got home, I realized all we had were a bunch of sides. So I threw a few things together to make this:
1/4 red quinoa, 1/4 can white tuna, 1T homemade hummus, 2 handfuls of spinach (slightly cooked) and some onions. It actually turned out to be a great dinner.
After this yummy dinner I made my green tea latte
Which wasn’t as green as I’d hoped, but I’m experimenting with this new matcha tea. I think I need to use 2 tsp instead of one.
It just stinks because this stuff is not cheap! But it’s so worth the splurge!
Dennis would say that I splurge on everything since I buy mostly natural whole and organic foods, but I’d say besides the matcha tea I splurge on Sunshine burgers and Greek yogurt.
What types of food do you splurge on?
