A breakfast kind of day

So, last night my friend Keith made us the most incredible dinner ever….

mushroom filled potato ravioli…

FROM SCRATCH!

He comes from a long line of italians who looove to cook, and has grown up on homemade pasta. So, as this didn’t seem like a huge deal to him, my jaw was practically dropped to the floor the entire time I watched his beautiful pasta making in progress. It was as delicious as it looks! And definitely makes me want to attempt my own at some point. Image

Deeeelish!

Training Day 2: when I hopped on the treadmill this morning I did not think there was ANY way I’d be able to run 3 miles… I was feeling tired and unmotivated, but once I started going I quickly got into a grove and kept going with it. Although I was a little bit slower today than yesterday, Im still just proud I kept going!

I followed my run with 15 minutes on the elliptical and a 7 minute circuit found on a new app I just downloaded called 7-minute workout! It’s a great one! It runs you through a series of 12 exercises, 30 seconds each. Its nice because you aren’t stuck doing the same thing for too long. Which if you’re anything like me, is very important. I get so bored so easily! So this workout was fabulous.

I headed off to work, coming back home around 12:30 to eat lunch. Yes, this photo is of my lunch, not breakfast. Do you ever have days where you just crave certain things? Well, lately it has been cinnamon life. I am a huge cereal lover, and sometimes you just gotta listen to your body. So, breakfast for lunch it was!

When I got home from work I was starving. I wanted something fast, easy and healthy…sooo…what do you know?! Breakfast again! I love brinner. So much. I scrambled up some egg whites & spinach, with a side of some carrots, celery & hummus. For a sweet treat I concocted together a sweet greek yogurt dip and dipped apple slices & strawberries in it. Yum!! Then obviously I mayyy have just had to have half a slice of the banana bread I made this weekend 🙂 It all hit the spot.
