Starting the week on a roll… a jelly roll that is

Sometime last week I accidentally downloaded the $10 Runkeeper pro ap on my iPhone…  I was kind of annoyed because the free Runkeeper pro app I had was working just fine… but apparently my right thumb decided I needed to go the extra mile (no pun intended) and buy the pricey app.

I’ve played around with the full Runkeeper Pro ap a little bit, and wasn’t too impressed until I logged onto the website and saw all the cool information that my phone automatically transmits.  As you may recall, I’ve been working on interval training (since my right knee is opposed to me doing a 5k).  So in the past, it’s been hard for me to tell how fast I was running and how fast I was walking during my intervals.

Enter the fancy schmancy Runkeeper Pro ap for the low-low price of $9.99!  When I logged onto the website I was VERY happy to see that I can get a breakout by interval.  Here’s the stats from my interval this morning which consisted of 5 intervals of 3 minutes walking and 3 minutes running:

Not too shabby on the run times.  Now I can actually work on improving my pace AND my knee strength.  I guess this was a happy $10 accident 🙂

Breakfast #1

I was planning to have eggs for breakfast, but time was not on my side this morning.  Instead I grabbed an Earth Grains 100% whole wheat deli flat and topped it with 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s Crunchy Salted Almond Butter:

My friends Tim and Jaci hooked me up with some Smucker’s reduced sugar red raspberry preserves to try, and I thought this combo would be fantastic:

AB & J:

I was right, it was fan-friggin-tastic!!  I love these reduced sugar preserves just as much as I love the regular blackberry preserves!  Smucker’s preserves are perfection.

When I was making yesterday’s garbanzo bean salad, I saved some of the veggies for my lunch.  CHOP ONCE, EAT TWICE my friends 🙂


I also added 2 ounces grilled chicken, half a bag of romaine lettuce, and 2 tbsp Ken’s Lite Northern Italian with Basil and Romano dressing:

Whole lot o veg:

Question for ya’ll:  What are your favorite things to pack for lunch?  I tend to get super bored with my lunches and would LOVE new ideas! 😀
