Lazy Sunday

I think this post is going to be a quick one — I just tried to plug my camera cable into my Clif bar.  That does not bode well for an articulate, well thought-out post! 🙂

First off, my post-race photo shoot!  This is my windblown and exhausted, but totally happy face:

Also, the hat I’m wearing?  Used to be navy blue.  That’s what happens when you wear the same hat for virtually every race!

As I mentioned before, my pre-race “breakfast” was a venti skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks, also known as my “wake-up drink” — that’s what the security guard in my office calls it when I walk in with it.  After the race I had the other half of my Clif bar from last night and a banana, both unpictured because I shoveled them in my mouth REALLY fast.

My two breakfasts kept me incredibly full during a late morning/early afternoon shopping trip!  Thanks to some coupons, a gift certificate and some sales, I got around $500 worth of stuff (Kara presents and a few Christmas presents) for about $150.  Jackpot!  Maybe I’ll debut a few of my purchases at work (and on the blog) tomorrow 🙂

By the time I left Modells and headed home, I was STARVING, and decided to stop at a new place for lunch on the way home.  I’ve walked past Healthalicious a million times before and it always intrigued me, but I had never gone in until today.  I ordered a turkey burger on a multigrain bun with cheddar, grilled onions and lettuce (I took off the tomato) with a side of mashed sweet taters:

The burger was delicious-licious (see what I did there?) but a bit unevenly cooked, and the mashed sweet potato was just meh.  I only ate a few bites of it before tossing it.  All in all, an okay lunch, but at $17 for the whole meal, WAY overpriced.  Maybe next time I’ll try one of their platters with sides included — I think they run about $10-11 each.

I spent the afternoon chilling on the couch with Barkley, surfing the interwebs, reading blogs and watching my Jets get embarrassed by the Patriots.  Good thing I don’t really care about football!  I also snacked on a Fruit2Day (man, I really love these!) while I vegged out.  I planned to be a little bit more productive today, but it was nice to just have a lazy day at home.

Around 7 or so I started getting hungry for dinner, but nothing in our fridge looked good and I didn’t feel like ordering out.  I decided to have some brinner: oatmeal with brown sugar, cinnamon and a bit of maple syrup:

EXTREME close-up:

Deliciousness!  When I was a kid my dad always made oatmeal with maple syrup, cinnamon and *coughbuttercough*, so this combo reminds me of him.  Now that he’s lost a bunch of weight with Weight Watchers (60 pounds — go Dad!!), he has his oatmeal with banana and Splenda 🙂

Surprisingly, I was still hungry after my oatmeal, so I noshed on one of the spiced pumpkin pie Clif bars (the one I tried to plug into my computer):

Now I’m happily satisfied and ready for bed — my early wake-up call, run and shopping marathon have tuckered me out! 😉  Matt just put in “Up” (which looks PHENOMENAL in Blu-Ray, by the way), so it’s time to cry for a bit, then crash.

Have a great night!
