Today my workouts really wiped me out - ran a 10K with Paul in the midday sun - managed to maintain just under a 10:00 pace so that was good but I was wiped out after that. Then a few hours later off to a new beach to try a swim there. Fanuel Park in Sail Bay - it was pretty water - much clearer than at De Anza Cove. The lifeguard told us that way off in the distance a red bush was about 1/2 mile away so there and back would be 1 mile. Great! I set off (swam along the shore the whole way) - saw lots of little tiny fish getting out of my way, and I saw quite a few little rays along the bottom burrowing into the sand...
What he didn't tell me is that there's a channel between the park and this bush where it gets deep - so the beautiful peaceful sand dropped off into deep dark water with plants reaching up from the bottom - surprised me and freaked me out a bit! But I made it over the channel, got to the bush, and stood up to prep myself for heading back. Now that I knew the channel was there, I just had to convince myself not to get out of the water and walk over the bridge that goes over the water to the other side - but I got back in the water and made it back to the park in one piece! :)
Mapped it after I got home - round trip was only .68 miles! Not even CLOSE to a mile - sheesh!
1962 cals (348g carbs, 44g fat, 93g protein, 79g fiber)
No grapefruit - and no muffin pan! I made this like banana bread instead - and it turned out rather well I'd say! 8 slices and halved those - and each chunk was ~100 cals. We actually ate a couple right before we went out running - and it was perfect! Didn't get any side aches so I know it wasn't too much food churning around in there.
I only got 2.25 cups of oat bran - so I added 1 tbsp almond meal, and didn't add any water. I also put in applesauce instead of a grated apple - I have no grater!!!
Chili Dogs & Applesauce
No picture :(
Cooked Smart Dogs on the stove, and we had TJ's Honey Wheat Buns - topped with lastnight's chili - it was perfect for after our run! Kids even ate the hot dogs without complaining :)
The Great Wooden Bowl Salad
Couldn't find the recipe online, so I just made a gigantic salad - well I should say that Paul made it! He chopped all of it up, thanks babe!
I attempted a creamy roasted garlic dressing - but put waayy too much garlic in it! It was so spicy it hurt my tongue lol - but we ate it anyways
Ton o' veggies, topped with the Jammin Burritos mix and some salad dressing - we both had two heaping plates of it!
And we're finally done with that Jammin Burritos mix lol - yay!
Matt Thomson’s Berry-Apple Crisp
I couldn't find the recipe for this either - I just chopped up two apples, put it in a glass loaf pan, added 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup frozen blackberries, topped with 1/2 cup oats, and 1 tbsp agave... baked at 400 for about 25-30 minutes. Drizzled 2 tbsp soy yogurt on top - I really enjoyed this! Paul said it was OK. The garlic was so overpowering from dinner that it was hard to really enjoy dessert - just put it in your mouth and chew lol
