Murphy and I just returned from a lovely walk around the neighborhood in the rain.
Usually, I need to draggg Murphy outside into the rain for our walks, but he was fairly willing this afternoon. I guess he really needed to potty?
When we got home, Murphy dried himself off on the carpet”¦ like a freak. It actually sort of looked like he was breakdancing.

What a nut. This dog makes me laugh everyday.
Lunch was pretty random today, but still delicious. I mixed together Lime Leaf Noodle leftovers with cheesy mashed cauliflower.
To make the cheesy mashed cauliflower, I steamed 3-4 cups of cauliflower in the microwave, added two triangles of Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb Cheese, and then mashed it all together. Mmm… tasty.
After lunch, I made a protein shake with vanilla protein powder, soy milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, and ice. (To make: combine ingredients and shake.)
Then, I headed to NuVal for a couple of hours.
NuVal is hosting a Twitter party with Lowe’s Foods tomorrow night at 7:00 PM (EST) for consumers to learn more about the NuVal system. If you’re interested in participating, the hashtag is #LowesNuVal.
After spending a few hours at NuVal, I headed straight to the gym for a quick workout. The Ellen Show was on, so I grabbed a treadmill right in front of the TV with it on. I <3 Ellen.
I ran 5 miles in 43:17 (9:03 pace) and felt pretty good. My hip still feels weird, but not painful. I think the cadence stuff is helping”” well, at least it’s not making it worse. I based today’s running workout on a variation of this 45-minute Treadmill Workout.
When I got home from the gym, I was starving, so I downed half of a bag of Pretzel Crisps that the company sent me as part of a new partnership. I’m going to be contributing some posts to their blog in the coming months!
My stomach is growling like crazy! It’s definitely time for dinner!
Enjoy the evening!
