Got myself a threadbare gypsy soul
Likes to dance and drink and go wherever the wind blows

A lil’ Pat Green anyone? One of my fave songs :).
I have to say, I’m definitely feeling especially quite gypsy-like these past couple weeks. Between all these weekend getaways, running here and there, barely having time to get all my ish done (much less train for a marathon!) and workin’ the 9-5, this gal wants nothing more than to put on a headscarf and bejeweled sarong, sing “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves,” and dance my way to Europe. Ahhhhh….if only….
It’s probably a good thing that it was only the “Men Tell All” for The Bachelorette tonight. My to-do list is a gazillion things long and watching pointless, dramatic, trashy reality TV that’s totally awesome can wait another week.
Breakfast was a bowl of Overnight Oat Bran a la Snackface…
1/3 cup oat bran
1 (4-oz) container Yo Baby Pear yogurt
1/3 cup skim milk
1 sliced naner
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup Zoe’s Honey + Almond granola
blob o’ AB
Then I ate my afternoon snack mid-morning because I was feelin’ snacky (to the tune of “Bossy,” of course) – Zoe’s Peanut Butter bar with PB frosting and topped with a flair of creativity…
Last week, I went administrative assistant turned nutrition counselor when Bryan, one of my co-workers, needed a dessert recipe that was chocolate & dairy-free for a BBQ he was heading to. After a bit of scouring, I found a recipe for Lemonade Cupcakes from MyRecipes. FYI: the recipe is not remotely healthy – it’s a BBQ people!
Well, Senor Bryan saved me a cupcake from the weekend since I gave him the ingenius recipe. Turn down a cupcake? Virtually never.
Some berry love munched on while running lunchtime errands…
Warning: most rando salad combo eva ahead! Weirdly enough, some of the strangest combos seem to be the most satisfying…hmmm…I might have to raise the eccentric stakes for next salad…
1 box raisins
TJ’s AB+PB+J trail mix
Newman’s Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette
Dindin was quite glorious, if I do say so myself. Let’s just call it healthified Eggplant Parmesan!
I was most def about 7 months preggers after this meal. However, I didn’t feel gross full – just contently full of delicious, nutritious and fabulous eats.
Finishing up the night, I headed out for a 6-mile run, which I finished in just under an hour. Since my marathon training is a bit off (due to the past week’s vacay getaways), I am planning my long 12 mile run for tomorrow (to make up for the weekend), taking Wednesday or Thursday off, then hopefully resuming the norm Hal Higdon plan.
Gotta go take care of my cousin’s beast of a dog – pics to come tomorrow. Seriously dudes…Angus (the dog) is a BEAST!
Peace out peeps.
