Girls girls girls
This weekend was glorious. Saturday morning my girlfriends Lauren, Megan, and Jami came over at 9 for an oatmeal escapade. I made us a big batch of oats and put out a set of different topping options. I put out a banana, almond butter, nutella, agave, and some chia seeds.
We each made our own bowls to our liking and chatted it up while our food digested. Saturday was our long run day. So far in training for the 10 miler i’ve only reached 4 miles and that was twice last week. Saturday we set out for 6 miles and with the sun shining we knew it was going to be a good run. We ended up running from my house down to Fort McHenry and then back up and finished in the inner harbor. Our final milage was 6.15 miles in 1:03. We finished, and finished strong together. I loved running with a group of us and having each other to talk to pushed you stronger and further. Hitting the 6 mile mark was a huge step forward and gives me more confidence that I can finish this 10 miler, and finish it well.
After the run I quickly jumped in the shower because my parent’s were coming down for lunch for my Mom’s Birthday! ❤ She wanted to go to the Abbey Burger Bistro right down the street from my house. I’ve raved about this burger joint forever, their veggie burger is hands down the most delicious veggie burger i’ve eaten. Fresh veggies for the patty with a yogurt sauce and chili mayo, lettuce, tomato, avocado with a side of sweet potato fries. This is one of my favorite meals in the city.
After lunch I went back to Columbia with my parents to spend the day with them. Nothing better 🙂
Later that night I ventured back up to Baltimore for a night out with the girls! We headed to Jami’s for a pregame then out to the bars. Girls nights are always so much fun no matter what we do.
Sunday was spent being a complete bum until about 3 PM.
I had some Morningstar buffalo chicken nuggets for lunch alongside with some yogurt ranch dressing and some celery. Those nuggets are SPICY but they’re absolutely delicious!
Dinner was simple and delicous. I sauteed some kale in some olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. I also made a eggplant, sabra supremely spicy hummus, and goat cheese grilled wrap. Japanese eggplant are so easy to quickly grill on the Forman and throw into anything. They’re light purple instead of the deep purple that regular eggplant is. A pickle on the side and dinner was served!
Hope you all have a nice start to your Monday!
