Before I get into today’s post, a quick note (because I needed a reminder, too): today is one of the last days to order gifts online to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas!
If you’re looking for some last minute gift ideas, check out my Holiday Gift Guide for the Fit Foodie. The post includes great ideas for runners (like my Nutrition for Runners program, or Bombas Socks – great stocking stuffer AND they donate one pair of socks for every pair purchased, which I love), fitness fans (like a gift card to ClassPass or a nonslip yoga mat), foodies (garlic olive oil and lemon olive oil, anyone?), and some fun extras (Stitch Fix gift card!). Happy shopping! I’ll be doing some last minute online shopping today, too. 🙂
Anyway! In other news, it’s Tuesday – that means I was up and out at the track this morning! The sun was just starting to rise when I arrived – so beautiful. And so warm – it was in the 60’s!
Today’s workout was straightforward: 800’s (2 laps around the track). A couple of the others and I did a warm up (also included on my watch) and then we all started the 800’s. We were supposed to do 6 to 8 of them with 1 minute rest in between. Fast turnaround so we had to keep the pace in check!
I did six 800’s then cooled down with a couple of the others (not included on my watch time). Great workout! Our pace was right around 1:50 per lap.
Post-track breakfast was leftover brown rice (cooked with tomato paste, some cabbage, and basil I think? It was from a Blue Apron meal last week) topped with two fried eggs. I also threw some arugula on the plate, too, and heated it along with the rice. The only thing missing was avocado – we’re out, the horror! Actually, we’re pretty much out of everything now that I ate this… time to hit the store!
Meanwhile, across the table…
Zara kept watch. I know I should keep her off the table, but she’s so gosh darn cute, I can’t help it!
In other news, I packed my lunch yesterday for the first time in ages (I’ve been having a fair amount of fun lunch dates lately – especially since there are so many new healthy and delish places downtown!). I went for an old fave classic: a tuna wrap!
Is it just me, or does tuna always make you think of Jessica Simpson? “Is this chicken, or is this fish?”
Aaaaaanyway, I mixed my tuna/chicken with mashed avocado and a squirt of dijon mustard. Topped with arugula! Zara was very excited because tuna meant she got to have a little, too. 🙂
I like the taste/texture of the Ezekiel wraps but I find they fall apart – wrapping it up in foil for transport is nice because it also holds it together! Then I eat it by ripping off bits of the foil as I go so it stays together.
I paired it with an orange and my favorite Kombucha – GT’s Kombucha in gingerade. Matt and I are OBSESSED. So good!
I will leave you all with an exciting announcement for any of you who might have missed it: the Serial podcast is BACK for a second season!!! I was SO excited and I already listened to the first episode yesterday on my commute (they release one episode per week, so now, I wait…). Any other Serial podcast fans out there?
Have a great day, my friends!
What are you having for lunch today? I have plans to meet friends for sushi!
