Happy WIAW!  I hope your week is going well.

I started my day off Monday with a delicious green smoothie, I served it up in a nice big mug/bowl and added some Ezekiel 4:9 cereal and blackberries. It was thick, creamy and good!

Lunch was a big bowl of salad goodness.  Romaine, spinach, grape tomatoes, red onions, dried cranberries, raw almonds, crispy fried onions sprinkled on top and dressed in a light honey mustard dressing.  Yum, Yum!

For an afternoon snack I grabbed a mango from my desk fruit bowl.

I took my workout clothes to work with me and changed before my drive home. My thinking was that it would save me the time of changing once I got home and I would be more motivated to workout if I were already dressed for my workout.  It worked, I went for a 4 mile run, I struggled the first half mile or so, but once my body warmed up I was feeling good.  It’s amazing how running even after a long day at work can give you an energy boost. I felt so good after my run, but I think running in the early mornings is my favorite time to run, it gives me energy to face the day.  After my run I took leftover veggie pasta, mixed in meatless italian sausage sautéed with onions, tossed with alfredo sauce and sprinkled on some nutritional yeast for the smokey flavor.

After dinner I did some blog reading and had a very good nights rest.
