If you live anywhere from Washington D.C. to Boston on the east coast you KNOW what I am talking about!  The Hartford area is seeing temperatures we have no seen in about 10 years!

Yes, that says 80*.  At 6:30 this morning.  Last night our bedroom got so hot the Husband actually slept in the basement since it was cooler!  Because of the extreme heat I do not think I will be cooking a lot this week.  Meals will consist of Green Monsters, sandwiches, and cool salads.

This morning, however, I did decide to cook.  I woke up STARVING and decided on an egg white omelet.

My breakfast consisted of

1 Egg

2 Egg Whites

1/2 green pepper

White onion

1 cup spinach

2 Tbsp shredded cheese

Oh man, this made my kitchen HOT!  At the same time I was making some mushrooms to put in a veggie wrap for lunch

I packed up all the ingredients so I can put together the wrap at my desk:

Portobello mushrooms

Green Pepper

Artichoke Hearts




Should be a good day 🙂  I am off to work!  I am enjoying a bikram class after work today.  Although, with this heat I could probably just do some poses in my backyard and get the same effect!

21 Miles, Run and Bike by Katie

The weekends just do not have enough time!  On Saturday, I completed my longest training run- 21.2!  I did the extra 0.2 miles because I was feeling strong and really pumped about the marathon.  After an ice bath, some ibuprofen, and a short nap, I felt pretty great! Yeah, my legs were exhausted and my muscles were shaky but nothing hurt.  I planned to blog about it right after because I was one some ridiculous running high, but I fell asleep on accident.   Understandable?  I hope so!  I’ll be back soon with a full recap.

Sunday was gorgeous and I requested brunch with mimosas!  I’m going to stay away from alcohol for the two weeks before the marathon so why not enjoy it now?!  Then John and I rented some bikes for the day and leisurely rode around Denver.  I totaled it up today and we rode about 21 miles.   It’s pretty amazing how different 21 miles of running feels than 21 miles of laid-back bike riding!

I need to apply to more jobs right now and while blogging is fun, I have to get my priorities in order.  I’m way behind on reading (and commenting) too.  Let’s hope it all pays off soon!!  See you back here later.
