WIAW WonderPot and the Foam Roller

Happy Wednesday peeps!  Today's workout was going to be an easy 3-4 miles but my legs had other thoughts.  My garden adventure yesterday was apparently quite the workout.  I started my run and realized I could barely get my feet off the treadmill.  Everything from my hips down was in agony.  So I called an audible and decided to spend some time with my foam roller.

Confession:  I have not foam rolled ONCE during this marathon training cycle.  I'm so embarrassed.  Well, we got reacquainted tonight, and it was not pretty.

You know how they say to keep your enemies close?  Looks like the foam roller and I are going to be tight for the next few weeks.  I'm hoping this date night will get my legs back in run ready shape.

Today's breakfast was steel cut oats with a scoop of Earth Balance Coconut and Peanut spread.  I love that stuff and I would eat the whole jar by itself.  I also had some coffee as usual.

I had leftovers for lunch and it was just as good today as it was last night.  Hmmm..I'm pretty sure that guacamole resembles something that was in Lexi and Lyla's diaper a long time ago.  Sorry, sometimes I can't control my thoughts and they tend to revolve around poop.  I have poop on the brain all.the.time.

I had a banana for an afternoon snack.  I really wanted to go get a Kind bar also but there was just no time.  We're flu shot central right now at work and it is super busy!  Get your flu shot!

I had some of this popcorn when I got home from work.  It was delicious and a lot like Boom Chicka Pop.  I almost think I like this better.  I'm pretty sure this is Target's new healthy line.  Anybody know?


Tonight for dinner I tried a new recipe for Budget Byte's Italian Wonderpot.  Basically you throw all the ingredients in a big pot and let it cook.  Easy and delicious.  I had pinned this recipe a while back and I was hesitant to try it because Josh doesn't always love pasta like I do.  

I'm happy to report that the Jones family really liked this recipe.  I highly recommend it for a quick weeknight meal.  You could easily add more vegetables to suit your families likes.  We like tomatoes and spinach so the recipe was perfect for us as is!

I got my monthly Ellie shipment in today and I'm super disappointed.  I had ordered 2 long sleeve shirts and they sent me one plus some shorts I already have.  I looked online and it appears that the other shirt is sold out.  I know a lot of people gave up on Ellie after the whole bait and switch thing with PV Body, but I really liked their stuff.  So I stuck with it, and I've gotten a bunch of really cute things.  However, this makes me upset.  Why not contact your customers and let them know that one of the products is out of stock?  Don't just send me something else, especially something I already have!  I sent an email to customer service so hopefully this will get resolved.  Otherwise, I'm done.

I hope you have a great night and an even better tomorrow!  Don't forget to head by Peas and Crayons for WIAW!

QOTD:  Have you gotten your flu shot?
