Today seemed like a good day to resurrect this leafy lunchtime favorite.
I topped a big bed of romaine lettuce with leftover roasted cauliflower and zucchini and chicken salad made with grilled chicken, sweet corn, light Miracle Whip and freshly chopped portobello mushrooms.
This salad it sittin’ big in my belly. I always feel like my stomach expands a little after a big salad. It’s gotta accommodate all those extra veggies, after all.
What Do You Wear?
For Part One of my bachelorette party, I’m heading to Chicago to party it up for a weekend with my girlfriends and top off the celebration by running in the Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon.
A group of my girlfriends will also be running in the race and we want to wear matching running outfits. My friend Merri asked me today what I like to wear when I run and it made me think… There are certain items of clothing I love to wear and others that I hate.
I love running in workout tops, sports bras and tank tops but can’t stand running in a t-shirt. I get so hot and feel almost trapped. I may be insane, but I really can’t stand running in a t-shirt.
My ideal running outfit looks a lot like this (but only if I’m running outside… I would never run without a shirt on at the gym).
(This picture was taken the morning of our engagement… I was still completely in the dark at this point!)
When I do strength training I like to wear spandex pants or capris because I don’t want to worry about accidentally flashing some butt cheek when I’m doing dead lifts or step ups.
What do you like to wear when you work out?
This morning I wore an awesome pair of Thorlo padded running socks (in pink, naturally) on my run with Sadie.
These socks were great and the extra padding was definitely appreciated since I got a lil’ blister on my left foot after my 6 mile run on Saturday.
