I know I am a blogger but that does not mean I like computers or understand technology.
I had a super close call with a computer virus Friday afternoon and since then, I have been trying to keep my computer running smoothly but it’s really not cooperating.
Computers test my patience more than my son does and things are still not working 100% so please bear with me this week!
Anyway, let’s catch up a bit while my computer allows me to type and share some pictures.
I had the Smart Fit salad from Cosi which might be one of my new favorites.
Kale, romaine, roasted sweet potatoes, avocado, roasted corn, black beans, roasted peppers, carrots and scallions. There was so much flavor without the dressing that when you tasted it with the dressing, it masked the goodness of the ingredients.
I also had this similar yet different yet delicious salad from Corner Bakery Cafe. I don’t know what it’s called but it had quinoa, black beans, corn and avocado involved which means it was real good.
I was really at Corner Bakery for the desserts.
Check out this Monster M&M Cookie.
This cookie was as delicious as it appears. All of Corner Bakery’s cookies are awesome (I know this because I have tried them all).
They are so soft and chewy, just how I like them, with that homemade flavor that only a really good cookie can produce.
I ordered the Monster M&M Cookie but couldn’t pass up the mini bundt cakes all covered in chocolate fudge frosting so I ordered one of those as well.
Okay maybe I had two of them but like really, how could you not? I mean, why run all of those miles every day if you aren’t going in cash in on your caloric expenditure?
Looking at this fudge frosted cupcake from Saturday is reminding me about my chocolate craving from Friday night.
I was experiencing an intense need for chocolate even after having some gelato (no picture, sorry) so I got a small cup of frozen yogurt covered in a large amount of chocolate crunchies and chocolate chips which hit the spot.
I have a feeling that Friday morning’s long run caused the extra dessert craving. Runger (combined with PMS) is real, don’t let anyone tell you that it isn’t!
A few more pictures from my Bethpage State Park trail run on Saturday.
I may run outdoors all of the time but I don’t actually like the real outdoors.
I tried not to look around much just in case I saw something unusual such as large insect or animal other than a squirrel, like a snake or something.
Not that Long Island is known for their snakes but who knows what lurks in all of that greenery and dirt.
But it was fun, I will admit it. The trail was a nice change of scenery and I didn’t get eaten by anything.
Not that you can tell from the above photo but I am wearing one of my back up pairs of Adidas Energy Boosts.
I am rotating two pairs of Boosts at the moment but found at least seven pairs of old Boosts in my closet the other day as I was attempting to clean it out and reorganize (again).
They are currently sitting in a bag in my trunk waiting to be donated at my local running store (they have a bin for old sneakers – I forget the charity/company name that they are donated to but will tell you as soon as I make my way over there).
My main focus at the moment is my computer.
I think I better go for a run before I lose my mind from the recurring message on this screen.
Have a great Monday![bctt tweet=”Let’s catch up with weekend stuff #running #cookies #salad #sneakers @cornerbakery #cosi”]
Favorite frosting for cupcakes? Chocolate fudge!
Do you donate your old running shoes?
