hello wednesday

i was a bit late for work today. it's not a big deal because i work in a very relaxed atmosphere. if you get here at 9:15, it's early, 9:30, average, 9:40 is pushing it. but of course we stay a big later too. no one is rushing out the door at 5pm. i like it! i couldn't get it going this morning... everything i did was so slow. i went for a four mile run and i did it, but it took a long time. sometimes my strides are long and i'm a speed demon, but today i was inching along like a little worm. i made another big iced coffee when i got home. yabba dabba do!

last night on the ride home from work i stopped at a shoe store and bought three pairs of keds. yes, keds! at first i typed "shore" instead of "shoe store" hahaha can you tell i'm slow today? i will take pictures of the shoes (and my other new shoes, and my painted apartment). a coworker just said, "i like your shoes" this very instant... while i am typing this! i will find photos online of the keds. i got classic canvas white:

these navy slip-ons which i am wearing today:

and these adorable wedges:

i really needed new shoes for summer... ones that do not need socks. last night i made another giant salad. this time i used spinach, some head lettuce, a chopped tomato, 1 cup cooked peas, 1/2 cup cooked corn, 8 chopped almonds, a handful of dried blueberries, 1/8 cup fiber one (the rest of the bag), and a sol cuisine spicy soy burger chopped up. and fat free ranch dressing. it was huge and delicious. i had two glasses of white wine at my book club as well.

today is wednesday, antm and date night! on the menu today is:

1/2 banana with pb2 peanut butter (1.5) pre workout
1 slice sprouted grains bread (1) post workout

Love the wedges!

I have big feet so the classics look HUGE on me. Booooo. But last year I got a couple of pairs of ballerina-style flats that I loved and was soooo stoked to pull them out again this year!

Have a great date night!

The wedges are soo cute.

You and your crazy salads! I wish I was as creative. I'm a typical boring tossed salad girl and I need to shake it up a bit. I love that you threw in blueberries AND soy burger!

I need shoes too... better get on the look-out. My big thing is to find something I can both wear with a skirt and ride a bike in!

The wedges are so cute, love them! I think wednesdays were created to be the slower days, that hump to get over and all. Have a great date night!
