After my big b-day dinner last night, it felt especially good to get my run in this morning. Today marks the completion of week #4 of my interval training plan! I can’t believe I’ve made it this far, and still no knee pain. I’m really looking forward to signing up for some races once I’m back to running a 100% of the time!
Here are my Runkeeper Pro stats for the interval:
3.04 miles in 32 minutes. Not too shabby, given that I was power walking for 12 of the 32 minutes. Next, I’ll be doing 3 10-minute intervals of 7 minutes running and 3 minutes walking. Part of me is excited for this bump in run time, and part of me is nervous!
I’m not sure how they calculate the calories burned in this app since it never asked me to input my height, weight, or sex. Pretty sure it’s not accurate, but at least the GPS function works! Can’t really complain since it was free 🙂
Breakfast #1: GFNBW
Grilled Fruit and Nut Butter Wrap! These always make me smile 🙂
Today I spread 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s Crunchy Almond butter atop a Mama Lupe’s Low Carb tortilla along with some sliced strawberries and blueberries.
Then I grilled the wrap on the George Foreman grill, wrapped in foil, and enjoyed the deliciousness at my desk at work:

Breakfast #2: OO
For my midmorning breakfast I had… surprise surprise – overnight oats! I switched up my usual mix by adding blueberries. I know, really pushing the boundaries here.
I swear I’m going to get more adventurous with my overnight oats! I’m going to miss these creamy morning treats on vacation:

I had planned on making a new dish using the leftover crabmeat from my birthday dinner, but I was short on time this morning so I quickly grabbed the fixin’s for a buffalo chicken wrap.
That consisted of:
- 1 Mama Lupe’s Low Carb Tortilla
- 3 ounces shredded chicken
- 2 tbsp plain Dannon Greek Yogurt
- 1 tbsp Franks Red Hot
- Sprinkling of Black Pepper & Garlic Salt
I had the wrap cold this time, and it was DELICIOUS. Reminded me of the buffalo chicken dip Jarrod and I always make for get togethers, only about three thousand times healthier!

The Man Candy comes home tonight! His flight is only three hours delayed… Oh well. Tomorrow we’re heading southward to Charlotte, NC! Roadtrip! 😀
Last night, Jarrod finally got in a Belgium Waffle:
That is RIDICULOUS. I’m jealous!
Speaking of the man candy, you may be wondering why on earth I call the BF that. Early on in our dating, we were out at a local bar and my dad happened to show up! I was unsure whether or not Jarrod would be comfortable with me calling him my boyfriend, so I introduced him to my dad as my “man candy” (i.e., manly eye candy)… Totally less awkward than calling him my boyfriend, right?! Hahaha… well the nickname just sorta stuck. My family still refers to him as my man candy. He is pretty easy on the eyes afterall 😉
