mocha + winnie

pooped puppies.

by kathleen on October 15, 2011

this girl’s saturday has been jam packed!



i was up super early to squeeze in a run before an 8 a.m. meeting downtown (yes, i know, it’s saturday).  i blew through 3.25 miles, grabbed a quick shower, and was out the door by 7:15.  i picked up a veggie juice (kale, carrots, celery, cucumber, green apple, lemon + parsley) for the ride downtown…



…and grabbed a venti non-fat misto (extra foamy + extra hot!) before heading in to the meeting.  i generally try to avoid caffeine, but today it felt very necessary.



i was slated for a 9:00 a.m. presentation that went swimmingly and was on my way home by 10:15.  amazing how much i accomplished early on a saturday morning!  i grabbed a bagel on my way and toasted it up with a schmear of pb + j when i arrived back home.



matt and i headed out for the dog park around noon and spent a good 45 minutes watching mocha and winnie chase tennis balls at full out sprint speed until they dropped.  needless to say to they absolutely, positively pooped.



lunch was a hodgepodge, but i can tell you this brussel sprout addiction is getting a little out of control.  i fixed myself a large plate of the veggie, roasted with olive oil and topped with my favorite whole foods roasted red pepper hummus.



the second part of my meal was a bowl of ice cream because… well… it’s saturday.  one scoop of  chocolate aside one scoop of peanut butter.  served in a fancy glass with a tiny spoon.  perfection.



i also munched on a few .  still delicious :)



not the most nutritionally sound lunch i’ve ever put together, but it worked.  and tasted delicious!

we’re meeting friends for drinks and then heading to a late dinner with the in-laws.  enjoy the evening!



how do your eating habits change on the weekends?

i find i eat less actual meals on the weekends, and more snacks.  we usually have a later breakfast saturday and sunday morning which leads to afternoon snacking up until dinner.  i definitely indulge in more treats on the weekends!


a chilly green morning.

good morning! it is a chilly one here, but i managed to drag myself from the warm covers for a 4 mile run/walk with the dogs.  not only was this my first time running with 2 dogs, but it was winnie’s first time on a leashed run — ever!  it was an experience, but they [...]
