Monday Night 5k

by Meghann on February 23, 2009

Whoa, after a 6 miler on Saturday and a 12 miler on Sunday, Team in Training was tough tonight!

When the boys I had ran with a couple of weeks ago took off tonight at an 8:00 minute pace I knew I would kill myself if I tried to keep up so I scaled it back to an 8:30 pace. That way they were kept in my sight, but not so where I was killing myself to keep up.

I ended up running a 5k in 27:14… that’s an 8:31 pace! After my 5k I walked a lap with some of the girls who were walking the course. Then we did a boot camp style work out that involved jump roping, lunges, push up and crunches.

After the practice I was beat, but rewarded with a Hersheys Hugs they gave to everyone. 🙂

Before I left work today I had a Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna Bar to fuel me up.

I was surprisingly not starving when I returned to my apartment..maybe it was the hersheys?… so I had time to put together a decent dinner.

I made a Black Bean and Refried Bean Burger with some cans of beans I had in the fridge.

I used about 1/3 cup of refried beans, 1/3 cup of black beans, green onion, chili powder, salt and just enough whole wheat bread crumbs to hold it all together. I then pan fired the burger till it was heated through and topped it with some Spinach, Tomato and Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce.

With the burger I had some Rutabaga Fries I seasoned with Blacken Seasoning then baked in the oven at 415 for 20 minutes. I dipped the fries in a mix of Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce and Ketchup.

I also had a pickle for some more green.

It was a great, satisfying dinner that was relatively quick and easy to put together.

For dessert i had the last 1/2 cup of my Carmel Praline Crunch FroYo with a sprinkle of Praline Pecan Granola on top.

I am so ready for bed now… my pillows are calling my name its not even 9:00 yet. Oh well, the pillows win. Good night!

Meghann’s Revamped Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

February 23, 2009

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup was another one of those meals that I used to cringe at when my parents would say that’s what was for dinner. I HATED Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup growing up, definitely a meal I would avoid at all costs. Now that I am a little bit older and a more »
