Hey everybody! It’s Friday!!

I am so ready for the weekend. Not much is happening for me, but I won’t have to sit around alone all day so that’s a plus. And I’m getting new running shoes! I have needed them forever and I am finally going to get them! Yipee!

Breakfast today was the same as always… raisin bran with some banana, strawberries and blueberries, and green tea.

This morning’s run was ok but its was already almost 80 degrees when I got out at 8:45 so I was HOT!

My morning snack was half a Flatout with some almond butter and honey and a light Baby Bel cheese.

I love these Flatouts they are so versatile and healthy!

Lunch was an almond butter, banana, and honey sandwich on low-carb bread, ( I added some cinnamon and sugar for good luck :P)

Mmm… so sweet and delicious!

and some peaches, blueberries, cherries, 0% greek yogurt, and 1% cottage cheese with a little bit o’ honey 😛

You can’t see the cottage cheese and yogurt but I promise it’s in there!

For dessert ( you gotta have something sweet after lunch!) I had 2 of these babies

They are my go-to lunch time dessert because they are super crunchy, just the right amount of sweet, and only 25 calories per cookie!

My pre-workout snack came later than usual because I fell asleep for an hour and a half this afternoon! I have no idea why but I was super tired today.

My snack was another 80 calorie yogurt, I love these so they will probably be around for awhile, in a very interesting and yummy flavor: coconut pineapple.

with that I had the other half of the Flatout from this morning with a 35 calorie garlic and herb Laughing Cow wedge, arugula, and tomatoes.

I rolled it up, and it was so creamy and delicious! (please excuse the little hair in the picture… :P)

My run at the gym was unexpectedly exciting because I got there at 6:10 and then realized that the gym changed its hours and now closes at 7:00 on Fridays! So I had to try to fit a normally 60 minute run into a 40 time slot! But I burned my 1000 calories for the day so all was well in the end 🙂

My mom got me flax seed today so I was super excited to try it out with dinner!

which was… an omelet with onions, red pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, 1/2 a soy sausage, arugula, some flax seed, and another Laughing Cow wedge

and a 100 calorie sandwich flat. I had half with margarine and honey and half with almond butter and honey because I couldn’t decide which I wanted and who says I can’t have both!

I also had a little salad with that because you can never have to many veggies! ( I put some flax in this too!)

For dessert I am going to have a Vitabrownie (<3) with some peanut butter. I have had this for dessert almost every night for what seems like forever. I heart Vitabrownies (and muffins)!

So that’s just another exciting day in the life of Elli!

I will check in tomorrow with my new running sneaks! And I might try to make a green monster tomorrow or Sunday since I have seen so much talk about them and I really want to try it! I just need to get kale, but I’m going to Whole Foods tomorrow so I can pick some up!

Enjoy your weekends everyone!
