Hi guys! Hope you’re having a great week!

I woke up to a rainy day and kind of just wanted to stay in bed! The thought of coffee got me up…it always does! My breakfast and lunch packed up for the office…

Cottage cheese, pineapple chunks, and an iced coffee for breakfast. A salad with romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, half an avocado and some turkey. Honey balsamic dressing. Water. This has been the usual lately…easy to throw together and nutritious!

Trying to get an outfit shot quickly and while half asleep…hello, there! Open-mouthed smile

It was still raining when I got home so I decided to head to the gym for some treadmill time. I grabbed a few crackers and a few bites of cheesecake, straight from the pan. Perfect fuel, no? Winking smile

And even though I was just headed to the gym and not out for a rainy run, I still sported my new running jacket that I picked up from TJ Maxx a few weeks ago. Safety yellow is totally my color…

It’s Nike and really lightweight…I love it! It will be great for when the weather cools (as an outer shell) and the days get shorter. No safety vest needed!

At the gym I ran three miles on the treadmill and did a short weight session. Nothing crazy but it still felt great!

It also felt great to step on the scale and see that I was down eight (!!) pounds from a few weeks ago! I try not to weigh myself often but I do like to do it every now and then just to make a note. I have some weight to lose but don’t really focus on it too much (I don’t diet), especially when training.

A few weeks ago I stepped on to see that I was up a few pounds and I was kind of disappointed. Reid commented that of course I had gained weight…I hadn’t been to the gym or out for a run in almost a month! Thanks, dear! Winking smile But in reality he was right and I didn’t let it get me down, I just changed things. More workouts, healthier meals! I don’t think the scale is ‘all-important’ but I do think it has its place, whether you’re trying to gain weight, lose it, or maintain!

Once home I threw together a quick dinner, chicken lo mein.

It was actually really good and I’ll share the recipe soon!

You may have noticed that my recipe page is down right now…I’m making some changes to how I share recipes so I took it down while I figure some things out. You can still find recipes by using the search feature in the sidebar.

Enjoy your evening!!

Did anyone else get a workout in today?

What is your favorite salad dressing…store-bought and/or homemade?
