I actually can’t remember the last time I was this sore after a race, maybe the day after Disney? At least I know if I’m sore then I gave it all I had on Sunday, right? 😉
My goal after the triathlon was to rest, rest, rest, but in typical Meghann fashion that did not happen. I came home and immediately took a 30 minute power nap (I had to set an alarm or there was no way I was going to get up) before blogging, showering (yes, I napped and then showered – priorities people!), and meeting my new friend Julie at the dog park.
Maybe I should have brushed my hair after that shower? 😉
The last time I saw Julie we were getting massages together thanks to the Chevy Girls on the Go program I participated in a couple of months ago. We’ve been tweeting back and forth ever since with big plans of meeting at the dog park with our pups. I’m so glad we were finally able to make it work out yesterday. Julie is such a sweetheart and it was great meeting her adorable fiancé, Ryan, and their fur-baby Sadie.
By the way, did you know our favorite Orlando dog park is in the running to win a $500,000 make over?!?!
If you have a minute please head over to www.benefuldreamdogpark.com and vote for Carla Lubet & Sprout/Winter Park, FL. If they win, Fleet Peeples Dog Park will get a paved path for wheel chairs, an agility course, an area for small dogs (like Maddie), and so much more!
I love Fleet Peeples Dog Park and thanks to the dedication of volunteers and their fund raising efforts the park is one of the best ones out there, but I know with this make over the park can become a doggie paradise for both the dogs and their owners.
On my way to the dog park I had an assortment of berries and cherries in the car.
Derek won boyfriend of the year award when he texted me on the way home to see if there was anything he could do to start dinner. God bless him. Without Derek’s help I’m not sure dinner would have been served in a timely manner at all. I had big plans of lasagna and no time to cook it. Derek saved the day by browning the sausage, combining the cheese mix, and slicing the zucchini. Derek did all the prep work, all I did was assemble. 🙂
Instead of a traditional lasagna we made my Zucchini and Yellow Squash Lasagna with yellow squash and zucchini as a base instead of noodles. Derek was skeptical at first with the ‘no noodle’ approach, but in the end he loved it and even took all the left overs home for lunch tomorrow.
To go with the lasagna I made a simple spinach salad with spinach, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, almonds, rutabaga and craisins.
Maddie joined us for dinner.
My plate with a little of this and a little of that.
I didn’t let the lasagna sit long enough, so it fell apart when I served it. Oh well, we were both hungry and waiting any longer wasn’t an option. (according to Derek) 😉
There was also a drizzle of raspberry poppyseed dressing on my salad.
The lasagna really did rock. It was the perfect triathlon recovery meal if you as me. 😉
For dessert I tried one of the Skinny Cow Cones I bought on a whim on Friday.
My favorite bard was the chunk of chocolate at the end of the cone. So good! it reminded me of the Drumstick cones I used to eat as a kid. Only thing missing was the nuts!
My bed was calling my name at 9:00 last night. It felt good to go to bed early and have a chance to sleep in. Love it!
Breakfast this morning was a bowl of classic cereal.
- 1/2 cup Kashi Puffs
- 1/2 cup Kashi Flakes
- 1/2 cup Kashi Warm Cinnamon H2H
- Plain Yogurt
- Peanut Powder
And now it’s ti
me for another week to begin…
Have a great Monday everyone!!!
