You would think that with all of this free time on my hands since my son is away at sleep away camp that I would have my posts well written and finished in advance. Not the case right now, not the case at all.
I made myself such a list of things to do during this time that he’s away that free time, extra time and down time isn’t a thing at the moment. I must say that it’s a great feeling though to be getting things done, especially the things that need to be done for the Bar Mitzvah!
I miss my little boy though. I go to make his bed in the morning at my usual make the bed time but his bed is already made. And at night, it’s a little weird that he isn’t here bouncing a ball against the wall but I am refreshing the camp website photo albums so often (wait so this is where my free time is, busy spent refreshing pictures) and I see him smiling and having a blast at camp so I am happy.
Anyway, the food. It’s What I Ate Wednesday which means we discuss what I ate so let’s discuss what I ate yesterday.
I am terrible about taking the early morning pre-run breakfast pictures lately but you can trust me when I say I had my usual half of a banana mashed into a really small amount of oatmeal with coffee. And a few glasses of water.
I actually slept a little later so I ate a little later which meant I had to run a little later in order to digest.
8 miles total with 5 miles of fartleks.
My post-run breakfast was lacking in the berries department because I cleaned out my fridge in such a serious way (scrubbing drawers and shelves per my list of things to accomplish) that I wasn’t left with much food.
In fact, my refrigerator is so empty that it looks like a bachelor lives in my house, not a runner who needs to eat every two hours.
I added Skoop B Strong and some peanut butter to my oatmeal after taking this picture.
I really didn’t know what I wanted to eat for lunch but I didn’t have much to choose from so it was sort of easy.
I found wild shrimp in my freezer so that was exciting since I didn’t even know it was there. I do not eat much fish at all which is my standard line every several months when I share a picture of a meal containing fish. I like the wild shrimp from Trader Joe’s but they don’t always have it in stock.
I made a really quick stir fry using the wild shrimp, roasted cauliflower and broccoli over spinach. I used Island Soyaki as the sauce and the sodium content is perfect for me especially after a sweaty summer run. I must keep my salt intake high right now or my electrolytes are an unbalanced mess.

I haven’t had Wild Fig in what feels like forever so yesterday was as good a day as any to stop in for a salad since I was in the area.
We ended up at Party City last night to grab a few things like M&M’s from the candy section. I made such a good mix too! Mega M&M’s, Crispy, Pretzel and Dark Chocolate. M&M’s will always be one of my most favorite candies.

What did you have for dinner last night?
Is your refrigerator empty right now like mine or totally stocked?
