I ran a VERY good 4 1/2 miles today (49:38). Judge Judy must have been so interesting. I didn't take my eyes off the TV until I was just about 3 miles into my run. Why not keep going (which I would have finished anyways). I really want to up my miles on Thursdays to 4 1/2 miles, not just 4 1/4 miles. Every little bit helps. I can't wait until it's cool enough to run outside after work! I'm ready for fall.
The guys at Inperspire were kind enough to send me a towel (of my choice) to try out. I choose the "be vibrant" towel. They have pretty cool towels. They really wipe the sweat off of you really well. Believe me, I sweat A LOT!! Awesome towels. I love their little saying they have on each towel.
When I got home, I still had some energy, so I cleaned up the house a little. I decided that I wanted to prep some chicken, so I can have it in a salad tomorrow. I was sent 3 different spices from Homemade Dressings. You can use these dried spices as either homemade salad dressing, rubs, vinaigrette, or marinades. There are so many options with these, it's great! I had a choice between, Italian, Napa or French Garden. Since this chicken will be used in salads, and pasta, I thought I would use the Italian. The smell was incredible. I made my own marinade, according to the directions on the back.
I mixed the dried herbs, with wine vinegar and let it sit for about 20 minutes. I was doing the dishes and could smell everything, and it made me so hungry. After 20 minutes, I baked the chicken in the oven for about 30 minutes. The entire house smelt of all this herb goodness.
I'm letting it cool, completely. Then, I will cut it up into pieces, and store in an air tight container. I can't wait for tomorrows dinner! Look at all those spices...
Tonight's dinner was used to clean out my freezer. I've had corn dogs in there for waaay too long. I honestly can't remember when I bought them. I don't want to waste any food, so I baked them up. I drank a 1/2 bottle of the blueberry pomegranate Purity juice. This has a lot less sugar than the strawberry flavor I tried the other night. A lot more mild! So much better!
P.S. Adam: Thanks for bit of info of what you thought the salsa looked like. I don't think I ever want to eat it again (which means less bad food) :)
