Reunited and It Feels So Good!

I think I am officially back to running! While I was gone, I ran a half-marathon and then continued to train for a full marathon until my IT band (the muscle on the outside of my left leg, affecting my left knee) flared up. It was devastating and I didn’t want to stop. So I didn’t. Which as you all can guess made it worse. So I finally listened to the “Doctor’s orders” and took time off of running AND the elliptical.

This morning was my second day running this week with NO pain! Hooray! And as for the rest of me, I feel great! My energy levels are more than they should be after my longest day at work ever…

Dark Lunch in a Dark Room

I know this is a terrible picture, but I feel like it gives you a glimpse into how I felt at work today. Trapped and blah. As soon as I left though I felt better!

Lunch was a spinach salad with red onion, celery, raisins and roasted chickpeas and tossed in TJ’s Cilantro Dressing. Ever since I saw Julie’s Guest Post for Tina, I’ve wanted to try roasting Chickpeas and putting them on a salad. They were SO good! Especially with the raisins!

I'm working on presentation...

And some more Sweet Potato soup!

A Tea Mug from England!

Breakfast was your traditional bowl of Oats with banana and egg whites and Cinnamon Raisin PB on top and a side of vitamins!

Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!

What’s your ideal work environment? Today I was stuck in a quiet room with no windows, which is NOT ideal for me! I love noise and a view of the outside!

Well Traveled

Well, Day #2 of my Wellness challenge has been great! I have a good amount of energy today and I took both packs of vitamins (19 more days and it’s a habit, right?). For breakfast and lunch I had just about the same thing I did yesterday.

Except I also had about a cup of this delicious creation…

Roasted Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

So because my food was the same, I thought I would share something else with you…my postcard mural!

I have been collecting postcards since I was a little girl and now have over 1,000 in my collection! Many are from places I have gone and many are from friends and places they have gone! It’s my favorite piece of decor in my room!

Happy making it over the hump day!
