Tofu Scramble, Group Ride & Grilled Portobello Sandwiches

Sunday Night Scramble 
Last night we ended up having breakfast for dinner. This is a real rarity as I've never been a big breakfast foods fan (other than say oatmeal). I made up an easy tofu scramble with bell peppers, onions, and spinach. I served up some tempeh bacon and half a bagel with peanut butter. Super simple.
 

I am going to have to remember this meal more often. It wasn't too heavy and you can change out the veggies in the scramble for endless combinations.


Monday Spin
Today ended up being spin class for me. We had rain chances in the forecast, plus it was going to be too warm and muggy for a run. I was supposed to meet a friend after work for spin, so it was all sort of decided ahead of time: Monday = Spin. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to make it. But I went anyway.

It was a pretty good class despite the fact that I've done this one track at least a million times. My legs were talking to me the whole time though. I think they were more tired from yesterday's run (the intervals most likely) than I had realized. But it was good to get them moving.

This is going to be another one of those weeks when I have to be strategic about my workouts. If I want to run, it'll have to be in the morning or at the gym. We have rain in the forecast almost all week. Also, my rest day really needs to be Saturday as we'll be on the road that day heading to the beach. 

I am planning on running in the morning with a friend. This means I must get my butt out of bed and actually do this. At least I know it'll be cooler for the run. Now just need the running gods to smile upon me since my last few outdoor runs weren't on the suckier side.

Grilling Out Sort Of
While it wasn't exactly gorgeous grilling weather, the rain was holding off (or so I thought). Jason had gone to the grocery store and picked up portobellos and some goat cheese. He's not subtle when he wants a certain dish ;-) It's so rare we have real cheese at the house anymore; big treat.

So, I decided to go ahead and grill up the dinner. This wasn't a complicated sandwich. I just wiped the mushrooms with balsamic vinegar. I also brushed some tempeh slices with the balsamic vinegar as well (wanted the protein).

When I went out to top the mushrooms with the goat cheese, that's when I had to go to plan B. The propane tank had just ran out and it started raining at the same time. Guess that worked out quite nicely I suppose.

I had to finish up the sweet potatoes I was also grilling inside. I mean, I was making a sandwich so sweet potatoes had to come into play right? Anyway, I layered up the sandwich with tempeh, portobello, roasted red bell peppers, and spinach and used whole-wheat sandwich thins.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
