I ran 5 miles this morning.

FIVE miles.

I don’t talk about it much on the blog, but I actually go to the gym everyday. Every morning, bright and early. This past week, I had worked myself up to three miles. If you had told me this morning that I would do five today I would have laughed…or at least giggled. And followed it up with a super smooth “NU-UH”.

What I can tell you?! I lost track of time watching CNN and looked down at 4.2. So I powered through. It felt amazing.

But I have been STARRRRRVING! I had a green monster before the gym, and then a banana afterward. This salad for lunch and a serving of cheese and crackers for a snack. And I was still hungry. So I drank a ton of water and went to the bathroom every 30 minutes. Somehow I made it through.

And I have to think that this supper had something to with that.

I know what you’re thinking. But those aren’t olives! (Although that would be yummy)

Chicken and Green Grape Gra-bobs

thursday 014

SUPER EASY TO MAKE! Just marinate your chicken in THE GOOD STUFF and then cut in to cubes. Skewer with green grapes and GRILL.

thursday 013 

Served on top of a fresh green salad dressed in Simple Shallot Vinaigrette: 2 tbsp. olive oil, 2 tbsp. white vinegar, 2 tbsp. Dijon, 1 tbsp. minced shallot, salt and pepper


BUT I’m still hungry. I see some air-popped popcorn in my future!

I didn't run five miles and I was starving all!

Those Gra-bobs look amazing! I'm going to put this on my menu for next week! =)
