Yesterday was a crazy day with running a 10k race and eating out twice, but it was a good day and I was happy with my choices. Today I was feeling great only a tiny bit of soreness in my knee. I spent the morning in doctor’s appointments and then had to run into Seattle to grab the heartrate transmitter to my Garmin, that I somehow left in the restaurant at lunch. Today was a rest day and I actually took it as a rest day only walking the dogs to get in my mile for the April Mile a Day Challenge. Tomorrow is back to running and I’m looking forward to it. And if you want to know a bit more about me check out this blog post at Slim Shoppin’ as well as the other success stories Jennifer has posted.
For breakfast I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich on a sandwich thin. For lunch I had leftover Lazy Chili. For dinner I made a Penne and Zucchini Carbonara. Along the lines of the cauliflower mac and cheese, I added a veggie to a pasta dish. I cut the zucchini into pieces about the size of the penne and lightened up the sauce by using egg whites. Ben and I both thought this was excellent and will be having it again.
