I did not celebrate St. Patty’s day at all yesterday. There were no green clothes, trips to the pub or boiled dinners. I’m sure the Irish gods will forgive me since I’m not Irish and all. hehe. Although I should definitely get some brownie points for running the Ras na hEireann 5K in monsoon on Sunday, don’t you think? 😉
Wait, wait, I did have a sip of Adam’s Guinness. Ok, I’m totally in the clear here. 😆
1/2 raisin bagel with homemade almond butter, 1/2 banana, reduced fat cottage cheese and an old clementine
Melty almond butter. Doesn’t get much better than that for breakfast!
Love me some cottage cheese too. I need to eat it more often. Old clementines, however, are not my favorite. They are dry and sit like rocks in my stomach but I don’t/won’t throw away food so I’m eating them like they’re the best thing since sliced bread. 😕
I don’t hate running, I don’t hate running! Phew – that was a close one there for a little while. It was the most gorgeous weather in Boston yesterday but I decided to stay inside and conquer my interval running fears. I used to love intervals but somewhere along the line (possibly after I got used to running outside) I started to despise them. I had 8×400 on the schedule and I finished them! It was hard and I did take a walking break in the middle but in general I alternated between 6.5 and 8.0 mph for 1/4 mile at a time… 8 times. Duh. I was bright red when I was done but so happy. Yay! 😀
Lunch was a beauty!
Wanna get closer?
Even closer? Ezekiel sesame bun with dijon mustard and a crab cake…
Smarter tarter sauce with 1/4 avocado
Good ol’ veggies – carrots and pepper
Assemble and dig in. SO good!!!!!!
A little emotional/boredom eating here folks. TWO paradise bakery cookies (I planned on eating just this one but ended up eating a second – they are BOGO free).
I never said intuitive eating was going to be easy. I’m still somewhere between “I can eat whatever I want and I should truly question my wants.” I knew I bought the cookies for the wrong reason but that didn’t stop me from doing so. I had a stomachache for hours after eating them. That will teach me!
… was snacky. Not really a dinner. I am hosting a Thirsty Thursday party for my co-workers today so the evening was spent grocery shopping, cleaning and prepping. At some point I had a sip of beer (see above) and little crostini with baba ganoush, hummus and the most amazing tomatoes.
I went back for another ww toast with the same combo. Too good!
And that’s how you do it. Did you celebrate St. Patrick’s day? Are you Irish or just like to get in on the festivities?
