Yesterday I left work early to go home and finish studying for my final exams. I decided I would go to the gym and study while running. I started off at the usual pace of 5.3 mph and then decided to add a little bit of an incline. Things were going quite well until I tried to change the page on my study guide. The paper slipped off of the ledge on the machine, as I went to grab it I hit the dreaded emergency stop! I hate that! I had an idea of how far I ran and was able to catch the time before the machine turned off. This is not the first time this has happened to me.
Since I was only planning to run for 30 minutes, I turned the machine back on and went for another 13 minutes. I wish I could report my total distance and calories, but I have no idea!
After showering and completed two final exams, I headed to the grocery store. I picked up some kale leaves, egg whites, turkey sausage, spinach, shrimp, and salmon kabobs. I am such an impulse shopper! I decided I was going to make more kale chips and I think they turned out a lot better! The trick? Use flavored infused olive oil! I used roasted garlic olive oil and I feel they taste so much difference. Scott even said he thought they were better :)
Since I frequent Dunkin' Donuts about two times a week for iced coffee and my egg white flat bread, I decided I would try making my own. With the turkey sausage, white eggs, and spinach, I created my own concoction of scrambled eggs. I added about a cup of low fat cottage cheese to help act as a binder. I put everything in a casserole dish since I wasn't planning to take the time and create individual sandwich patties. This morning I was able to scoop what I wanted and microwave. I threw an Arnold roll thin in the toaster oven. Not the same, but close enough for me!
The salmon kabobs and shrimp were our dinner last night. I love having my parent's foreman grill! I have grilled a lot on it over the last 2 weeks.
