Today Was A Good Day

Life is good right now for so many reasons but here are some things that made today truly exceptional.

1) I finally put together and posted my Marine Corps Marathon training plan last night. A HUGE weight off my shoulders.

2) The day started with oats in an almond butter jar and black coffee. Yum. Just yum.

3) I went on an impromptu lunch date with my husband and he took me to Yoforia after lunch for a sweet treat. Sorry for the fuzzy BlackBerry picture. I didn’t have my camera!

4) After many years of wanting, I finally ordered the Garmin 305. It’s necessary for this marathon training cycle because I’m focusing so much on pacing.

5) I got to test out my new Garmin on a group run with a bunch of wonderful CLT healthy living bloggers. I ran an easy three(ish) miles with Jen, Kelly and Michelle. Cannot even begin to express how happy I am to finally have running friends in Charlotte.

6) I came home to find Brandon setting up our back patio for a night of grilling and outdoor blogging! 🙂

Caprese Salad

Grilled portobello and couscous for me (steak for him).


Must share just a few highlights from Wednesday with you…

Finally tried Siggi’s yogurt.

The verdict? Whoa. The thickest yogurt I have ever had. Pretty intense but packed with protein and came in at only 120 calories. A snack with a punch.

I met up with Brittney, Katie and Jessie for a yoga class at Y2 Wednesday evening. So fun to meet these lovely bloggers and share a great yoga practice with them.

And finally, we changed our meal plan for the night. Baked falafel out, chicken parmesan in.

I didn’t get home until 8:30 p.m. and this was the fastest, tastiest thing that I could whip up. One of our all-time favorite go-to dinners.

And that’s all I’ve got for you tonight. So happy that tomorrow is Friday – and that I can wear jeans to work! 😉

Does your office have casual Friday?

We technically have a pretty casual/use your best judgement dress code every day but I work in account management so I dress like my clients Monday-Thursday. LOVE casual Fridays!

    That dinner looks amazing! Do you have a recipe? 🙂

      Danielle – are you looking for the chicken parmesan recipe? If so, I don’t have it typed up! I just make it as I go. I’ve taken pictures of it in the past to put on my food blog but never have. I need to get on it!

    I agree! It’s so nice to have running friends. 🙂 I had a great time with you guys last night. We must do it again soon.

    Thank goodness you had your Garmin last night since mine and Jen’s flaked on us. It’s funny b/c that happened the last time some of us got together for a run. So glad that things are good in your life! 🙂
