I was at serious risk of skipping my workout today due to work craziness, but I walked back to my desk at some point around 2:30 and just knew that, if I sat down, I wouldn’t go for my run. Instead, I checked my email one last time to be sure I wasn’t missing anything critical and then picked my stuff up and didn’t look back. Boy, am I glad I did! Even though I didn’t get to work out for very long (the curse of a lunch time workout), I managed to run 4 miles in 35 minutes and then get back to the office in under an hour. Where there’s a will there’s a way, right?
I walked home from work, thankful for my workout and thankful for the unseasonably warm weather we’re getting in NYC. I also took Bodhi out for an easy 1 mile walk and I was starving by the time I got home! For dinner tonight, I wanted something flavorful and filling. I boiled a package of these adorable little perline pasta purses from Trader Joe’s (seasoned with dill, stuffed with cheese and prosciutto) and topped them with a mixture of orange and red pepper sauteed in a bit of olive oil and flavored with oregano, garlic, sage and cracked black pepper.
I had a big bowl of salad on the side topped with homemade vinaigrette.
For dessert, I had a (unpictured) small bowl of Haagen Dazs chocolate sorbet topped with raw cashew pieces and dried cherries.
Have a great night!
