The pictures make my injury look a lot worse than it really is. I promise! 🙂
This afternoon was filled with so many fun events! First on the agenda was a scavenger hunt hosted by my sorority. We are raising money/ awareness for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and we have a whole week of fun events! I am super excited because all of the Greek organizations on campus are involved and it’s allowing me the chance to get to know new people. 🙂
After the scavenger hunt I hit the gym for an easy cross training workout. I completed 3.5 miles in 35:00 on the elliptical. While at the gym, I did some people watching. Now that I am running more and know what is a comfortable mile pace for myself, I start to look at others and figure out what pace they are going at. For instance, there was a guy on the treadmill across the gym. He was going at a pretty steady pace, but I kept wondering to myself if I was faster than him. I also catch myself doing this when I see a runner while I am driving in my car. I don’t know if it’s just me being curious, or a bit competitive. Maybe a little bit of both. 😉 Oh, and I totally think that I could have run faster than the guy, just sayin’. 😉
For dinner tonight I wanted something a little different and I found some quinoa in the pantry. I threw together an easy vegetable quinoa dish.
Savory Rosemary Vegetable Quinoa (makes 2 servings):Ingredients: 1/4 cup quinoa 1/2 cup water 1.5-2 oz carrots 1 celery stalk 2-3 cherry tomatoes 1/4 cup onion 1/8-1/4 cup green pepper 1-3 large olives Juice of one lemon A palmful of Rosemary Salt and pepper to taste
Directions: 1) Rinse quinoa in strainer until water runs clear. 2) Combine quinoa and water in a small sauce pan. 3) Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
6) Add rosemary, salt, and pepper to taste. Serve with a fresh salad.
It was such a yummy dinner and really hit the spot. 🙂 I also had a nice “cocktail” of pills for “dessert.”
My father suggested I take some natural supplements to try and repair/ prevent any future injuries. It’s worth a try! 🙂
Oh, and on a completely different note, I cut my first pomegranate tonight! I received a Pom-a-Gram from POMWonderful the other day and I’ve been dying to try it for days! 🙂
But it was oh so much fun! 🙂
The arils were so tasty! I can’t wait to pick up another pomegranate from the store! 🙂
Well I believe that is it for tonight! I’m going to shower, catch up on my blog reading, and hit the sack!
I hope everyone has had a great day! 🙂
