Mother Earth!

I ended up running

  • 4.51miles
  • 45min 01sec
I thought it was a little overcast today...WRONG. It was soo hot and I was super sweaty when I got home so I refueled with some coconut water.  To be honest...I don't LOVE the taste of coconut water but I like how it makes me feel post run.  It isn't super sugary like some drinks and I actually feel good when I drink it.  Try it!

I hate waking up late because then I end up skipping a snack.  When I got back from my run..it was around 12 and I had to go to work around 2 today...so...I had lunch.

Sorry about this pic..not the most appetizing  but it was delish.
  • slice of whole wheat toast with stone ground mustard
  • bison frank
  • carrots and bean dip
  • Pacific Tomato Soup

For a snack I packed some whole grain crackers, a banana with barney butter and a salad made from 
  • cucumbers
  • tomato
  • onion
  • olive oil
  • lemon 
  • salt and pepper
I ate about 1/2 the salad.

I was STILL hungry despite the large snack.  That's what happens to me when I skip my mid-morn snack.  I get uncontrolably hungry.  I don't mean to skip snacks..it's just hard because I have to eat lunch by 2:30..when you wake up at 9:30 (like I did today!! SO LATEE I KNOW!!)..its hard.

For din, I stopped at Mother Earth...the hot bar was more than lacking.  All the good stuff was gone! I saw some sort of spinach lasagna thing and got all excited...only to find the little thing empty. UGH!!  So..I went to their Macro/Vegan stuff and got:
  • Thai Dumplings (really good...the filling was like a vegetarian egg roll filling)
  • Sesame Noodles (just had a few..but really good)
  • BBQ Tofu.  I decided I just dont like this..too chewy. cool, just wasted $5
  • Salad (that I topped with some smoked salmon...a tiny piece)

This is a pic of the dumplings and the sesame noodles.

ate about 1/2 the salad.

I felt snacky post dinner so I had a few Stacy's Bare Naked Pita Chips (about 4), a Cliff Nectar Cacao Bar (this was for dessert) and a small bowl of Flax Cereal with Skim Milk.

Not that great.  It was fine...but I much perfer the reg Cliff Bars.  This bar reminded me of the Cliff Z bars...but I like the Z bars better.  I don't think i'll buy them again although reg Cliff bars (along with Larabars) are my absolute faves.

Now, I am going to go be a boy and watch the Gator Game on ESPN..then watch some girly shows like real housewives and such.  Oh and maybe i'll get around the reading.  


  1. Sesame noodles look so good! Yummm... I need to find Z bars to try, maybe at Costco this weekend.

  2. I LOVE Mother Earth! And I tried some Coconut Water today and really did not like it either. I think I will be dumping it in my smoothies because I don't want to waste it and throw it away. Or maybe I'll give it another shot some time soon :)

  3. Oh I know! the thing with the coco-water is that I keep thinking its water that just doesn't taste right...its not quite juice but its not water..haha its all mental for me!
