Lovely Lunch, Easy Dinner

by Cait on September 27, 2011

This day just came and went!

I had a lovely lunch this afternoon with some of my old co-workers from Health – it was so nice to catch up!

We ate downstairs in our building’s cafeteria so I took the opportunity to grab a big salad from Bocca (my favorite).

In the mix:

  • Spring mix
  • Cucumbers
  • Onions
  • Edamame
  • Kidney Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Avocado
  • Hard boiled egg

All chopped up and topped with oil and vinegar!

So fluffy.  So delicious.

Honeycrisp on the side!!

Wonderful company, wonderful lunch (thanks ladies!)

I came home and literally sprinted upstairs (okay, took the elevator), changed and headed back out the door to get my run in.

There were some ominous looking rain clouds hovering and I didn’t want to risk getting caught in a complete and total downpour + thunder and lightening.

The rain I’m okay with – but  not when it starts to lightening.

Luckily I made it without a single drop!

3 miles in 21:16.

Success.

Then dinner!

Roasted brussel sprouts, Alexia sweet potato puffs, Toasted bread (<— with olive oil + salt!), TJ’s sliced roasted chicken and sausage!

A perfectly simple but delicious dinner.

Now it’s time for 90210 (I know, it’s okay – you can judge me), a little more packing then another early bedtime!

Night everyone :)

3 miles in 21 minutes?! Way to put my 5K PR to shame, Cait! ;-)
But seriously, you are awesome!

Hahaha – I recently ran with a friend who’s SUPER fast and I think the run had a positive influence on my time :) This isn’t really standard for me on just a regular old run! But thank you!!

A seven minute mile? Girlfriend, you are putting me to shame (and leaving me in the dust)!

Sounds like a nice lunch and time to catch up with friends. And man your speedy!! Those sweet potato puffs look really interesting… do you find you like them better than the Alexia fries? I’ve never seen them before in stores but I’ll keep an eye out for them now.

I wouldn’t say I like them BETTER necessarily, but they’re a nice change from the fries every once in a while :)

That salad is beautiful!!! And a 7 minute mile? Um, remind me never to challenge you to a race!!!

Katie September 28, 2011

Good for you getting that run in. And as always, I’m amazed at your speed. Just amazed.

How long until moving day? And are you moving far? How do I not know this information? Maybe I just need to email you and catch up. :-)
