Last night for dinner, I had Brussels sprouts with red onions and salmon belle mar.
I haven’t had Brussels sprouts in a while, so they were a nice change. And I love salmon belle mar. I buy it from Target and it’s salmon stuffed with a crab seafood filling. It’s so good.
- 4.5 miles treadmill (6x 20 sec strides)
Today’s run was not the best. I blame it on the treadmill. I took more walk breaks than I can count. I still managed to complete 4.5 miles, and I did strides the last mile. I ran fast for 20 seconds with 45 seconds recovery at a jogging pace six times. By the time I was done, I was so sweaty it wouldn’t have made much difference if I had ran outside in the humidity.
I wore my Mizunos with the new SuperFeet inside. So far so good. They felt good while I was running.
I also wore my heart rate monitor and it picked up my heart rate for the first minute and then stopped. I’m not sure why it just quit finding my heart rate but it did, and I eventually just turned it off because it never picked my heart rate up again.
Also, during the first mile, I felt something sharp poking into my foot. I tried figuring out if it was the SuperFeet insoles but they’re not sharp. Finally, after the first mile, I took my shoe off and sure enough there was blood all over my sock.
I went into the bathroom to investigate and it looked like a piece of my nail came off and was slicing open the toe next to it. Great. I asked the front desk for a Band-Aid and cleaned my foot up. I got back on the treadmill and finished up the rest of my run.
Like I said, it wasn’t the best run today.
For lunch, I made a totally random salad.
My salad included: mixed baby lettuce, red onion, pears, blueberries, cranberries, almond slices, feta cheese, and poppy seed dressing.
I picked up a few items at the grocery store that I am excited about. First, I found this new Jif whipped peanut butter. I am a huge peanut butter fan and can’t wait to try this out.
It has 25% calories and fat than regular Jif peanut butter. It has 140 calories per two tablespoons. I think I’ll be making peanut butter French toast soon.
I also finally found Clif bar minis at the store!
I love regular Clif bars and Clif Builder bars but sometimes the full-size bar is too much for me. I’ve been looking everywhere for the Clif mini bars and finally found them at Meijer. Each bar has about 100 calories. I think these would be great before my long runs on the weekend.
Have a great afternoon!

- Favorite salad dressing? I always have a hard time finding a dressing at the store. I like Ken’s Vidalia onion dressing and Annie’s poppy seed dressing.
