Happy Fridayyyyy! This week went by pretty fast actually and i’m glad the weekend will be here in no time.
Yesterday I had a mid day treat and got myself a tea and a scone from one of my favorite places to go by my work called Teavolve. They have the most amazing selections of tea and the food is always so fresh and delicious. They source a lot of their ingredients locally and I love that aspect about them. They also freshly bag their own tea when you order. I got a Rooibos Chai hot tea and a mini white chocolate chip apricot scone. The perfect treat.
Yesterday during lunch I headed on over to Whole Foods to pick up the necessary ingredients to make Annes fANNEtastic granola bars! I’d been dying to make these but was missing a few things. Luckily whole foods solved my problem. I followed her recipe exactly except subbed almond butter, ended up buying puffed wheat instead of puffed rice, and then added some shaved chocolate from some baker’s semi sweet chocolate squares I had in the cabinet. I love the bulk section in Whole Foods. I was able to get a small amount of raw pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and unsweetened coconut for a fraction of the price of buying a whole bag.
Anne, these are amazing, definitely better than any store bought granola bar, and so quick and easy to make. These will from now on be a constant in my house!
For dinner I roasted some kabocha squash in some olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. I threw it on a salad filled with cucumbers and avocados and dressed it in zesty italian dressing. Kabocha really goes with anything.
After I left work yesterday I got an awful pain in my foot. It was really random since it started hurting as I was walking out the door, nothing had happened? I tried to walk Eden and it was a terrible pain. It was all along the left side of my left foot. I considered the factors that I was wearing these really flimsy flats, and that maybe I should invest in some new running shoes. I bought mine before Christmas last year, and the inserts had probably been worn out too. I headed on over to Charm City Run and got some opinions and then left with a new pair of Asics 2150 and new inserts.
I woke up this morning and my foot felt 100 times better but then when I started walking again it started to hurt again. Has this happened to any of you? I’m confused and would really like my foot to feel better. Of course i’m freaking out at every possible option, thinking omg is it a stress fracture? So hopefully i’m just freaking out for nothing and it just starts to feel better soon. I would really like to go on my 7 miler planned this Saturday. Well if you have any advice/opinions I’d love to know. Thank you SO much and have a HAPPY friday!
