All week long I have been excited for my 10 MILE long run with my sis. I was all ready for it yesterday and then the rain got in the way. You would think I’d wake up amped and ready to go..but, this morning I was slow moving and running was the furthest from my mind.
I knew not going wasn’t an option so I got down to Bees Knees with a 6 point breakfast to fuel me for my Long Run.
2 slices toasted Sour Dough (I need to buy bread!)
1 Tbsp of The Bees Knees (LOVE this honey PB)
Starbuck’s VIA & Aqua
All packed up and taken on the road!
I just have to say that my SISTER seriously rocks! She had an amazing run today and whipped out 10 miles like it was nothing. I, on the other hand, ate her dust….Ok, well, maybe not quite ~ I did pretty good through mile 8 and then my legs thought they were all done. I am proud of myself for pushing through when I totally wanted to say screw it and walk the rest of the way.
I decided to give Accelerade a try after our run because I’ve heard it helps your muscle recovery time post run. It’s what they give all the runners are Fleet Feet post run so I figured why not ~ if it will make me GO FASTER :D.
Sounds good right ~ the stats are not too bad.
The ingredients ~ ya, well, it’s pretty much sugar plus protein powder plus sugar, and a bunch of not so good stuff.
All I have to say is ~ if you are tempted to give this a go, DON’T DO IT! Nasty, nasty! LOL….it tastes like Gatorade mixed with Whey Protein Powder ~ bleh! We tossed the bottle and headed out for some REAL food at Baja Fresh!
I think we pretty much picked up everything you can get at the salsa bar plus a little GUACAMOLE and QUESO!
I had 3 FANTASTIC TACOS that I loaded up with salsa, Pico de Gallo, jalapeños and guacamole.
I had one 4 point shrimp taco.
Plus two 4 point chicken tacos.
SIDE NOTE: if you are looking to save on points, you can use just ONE of the tortillas they give you versus TWO and you save a point.
We did a little shopping before I headed home and took my FIRST EVER ICE BATH. I have to admit it was a bit chilly and totally hard to convince myself to just get in, but, after I was in I didn’t want to get it. It felt so AMAZING on my aching legs and joints. When I got out of the bath tub and shower, I was not even as sore as I was going in. My muscles were probably frozen still 😉
The Husband has been working hard for the past two weekends to fix our 60 year old fence that finally fell down. (Note: The Jungle is our next door neighbors yard ;))
I took these before he had a chance to remove the cement forms and clean up the extra cement. It’s SO tall now.
I LOVE how it matches My Garden Box!
The new gate door is going to look so cool when all is said and done. P.S. Yes, that is our other neighbors PINK house in the background ~ you have to LOVE the Bay area 😀
I was ready for a snack when I came in. I picked up these NEW Organic flavored Yogurts at Trader Joe’s Yesterday….Vanilla and BANANA!
Not bad 2 points each!
I LOVED how thick and creamy it was ~ it’s close to Greek Yogurt consistency. I had banana and it rocked! These might be my new favorite things. They had other flavors that I know I NEED to try now.
I was still sorta hungry so I made up a 2 point cheese Sandwich using 2 Kashi Bruschetta Crackers and a LF Colby Cheese.
We had planned on taking our friends out to dinner tonight to the Texas Road House to thank them but they couldn’t go. I knew The Husband was bummed since it’s his FAVORITE place so (
I didn’t feel like cooking) I treated him to dinner for all his hard work on the fence.
He ordered the combo appetizer and I played along. I had one 4 point potato skin.
Plus one of these Rattlesnack Bites (like a Jalapeño Popper) – Guesstimate 2 pts.
I actually wasn’t super hungry so I decided to stick with sides. I had a garden salad with Italian Dressing on the side. I gave my croutons to The Husband ~ they were too salty for me. (3 pt estimate)
Plus two or maybe three of their AMAZING soft rolls!
It’s the CINNAMON BUTTER that does me in every time. (Bazillion point estimate 🙂 ok, probably like 3 pts each plus 2 pts for the butter!)
My other side was a HUGE Sweet Potato that I had NO ROOM left for. That’s ok ~ lunch tomorrow!
I asked for all the toppings to be put on the side, but, I didn’t expect this.
Toasted Marshmallows with a BUTTERY CINNAMON CARAMEL sauce on the side. I had to have a couple of bites before I put it aside ~ SO, SO GOOD, you know it’s bad!

I am totally PUMPED for Monday, not because it’s Monday, but, because it’s The Scandalous Bachelor finale and AFTER the Rose shows!!! Ahhh ~ 3 hours – Can’t wait!
I will catch up with your emails, comments, etc tomorrow ~ for now our cozy bed is calling me.
