After work I headed out for a 5 mile run. Like I said before, I was supposed to do 5 miles but only did 3 so I definitely had to complete 5 tonight.
Luckily, this guy came in the mail! No I did not run at 10:00 at night. I just forgot to take a picture earlier :)
The watch is made by Tech 4 0, which is a company I found on Amazon.com. I didn’t want anything super expensive or fancy and this watch is no frills but exactly what I w anted.
In fact, I picked out the men’s watch! I did this on purpose. I would have liked a pink watch but they didn’t have any cute shades of pink so I went with the standard black. Plus, I paid $35, whereas some of the watches went up to $200. This watch was $70 on the Tech 4 0 website.
The features include:
I love it :D
I looove sandwiches. There is no denying that. So when I came back from my run good and hungry I decided to make a tasty sandwich.
Grilled ham and American cheese on rye bread with grainy mustard and tomato slices.
With a side of homemade sweet potato fries. To make them I cut them into chunks and put them on a piece of foil drizzled with olive oil and baked them at 450º for 20 minutes.
Yummy in my tummy!
After dinner I chatted with my cousin who is staying with my family while her apartment gets ready. Her dog is staying with us too!
I really did try to get a picture of the two of them together, showing their faces but to no avail!
Last night I stopped at a produce stand close to my house and snagged a bunch of veggies. I couldn’t resist picking up an eggplant but I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it!?
Eggplant parm it was!
To make the eggplant parm I used a vegetable peel to create ribbons of eggplant. I then sauteed the eggplant in a pan with a little olive oil. I topped it with my fresh tomato sauce and a little mozzarella and delicious-ness was created! Quite easy and a great way to get my favorite food when I don’t have time to make a whole pan! Plus I cut out the breading and oil that it is normally fried in.
With some roasted potatoes and red pepper.
And some little hot dogs…kidding :)
Mmm it was a great lunch!
I packed a snack for later this afternoon. Some leftover popcorn and carrots.
I have another run planned for this evening. I really need to do 5 miles because I was supposed to do it last night but stopped at 4. I just wasn’t feeling that extra mile and didn’t want to push myself, although I probably should have. But I’m pumped to go the extra mile today…literally!
