by Meghann on January 9, 2009

I finally got around today to hooking my Garmin up to my lap top and OMG, how cool is this?!?!?!

Oh how I love thee Garmin!!!! I swear I learn something new about his guy little guy every day. I love all the information I can store on my computer now and how it gives me a map of exactly where I ran. This device is every runners dream. I can’t wait until I start training for my next race, I think this is going to make a big difference in helping me disect how I run.

Of course this activity was the highlight of my day. The rest involved a big deadline and meetings, all I can say is thank god its the weekend. 🙂

This morning I had a great snack of string cheese and almonds.

Lunch was something easy I had actually prepared the night before – Tuna Salad.

Tuna salad a is great because you can basically bulk the tuna up with so many yummy things. You don’t need to drown it in mayo and fat, I substitute other healthier alternatives for a great balanced salad.

In my Tuna Salad:

  • 1 small can of Tuna
  • 1 teaspoon Fat Free Mayo
  • 1/2 tablespoon Honey Mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon Spicy Mustard
  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Olive Tapenade
  • Banana Peppers
  • Tomato

I mixed the above ingredients last night and then this morning just topped it on a bed of spinach.

On the side I had a left over Whole Wheat Oatmeal Biscuit and Apple Slices.

It was a great lunch that actually left me pretty full, I didn’t have my afternoon snack of applesauce until around 4:30, a full hour and a half later then normal.

I have plans to see a movie with friends tonight and instead of suggesting dinner out, I figured I would save some $$ and calories by making something quick and easy at home.

I had 1/2 of a Kashi Roasted Vegtable Pizza and some left over steamed Green Beans. I wanted to make sure I had plenty of veggies on my plate.

Now I’m off to meet my friends. Another good reason to eat at home is now I won’t feel quite as guilty indulging in my favorite Frozen Yogurt shop! Have a great Friday night!
