Before the run with my Canada Day balloon: ;)
On the last 1/2 mile it started to sprinkle though. It was kind of refreshing because we were both quite hot and it was very humid outside.
- Outdoor run, including 2 huge hills
- Distance: 4.60 miles
- Duration: 42 minutes
- Max Heart rate: 171 bpm
- Avg heart rate: 154 bpm
- Avg pace: 9:15 min/mile
It was a great run! Eric was on bike of course, motivating me to pick up the pace! lol. I love our bike/runs together. It is a nice chance to catch up and relax with one another.
Not even 1 minute after we got home, it started to DOWNPOUR!!! Now that is luck! lol.
I also did the SGBC exercises! You can assume that I am doing them according to the calendar unless I mention otherwise. This will save me from having to say the exercises I did each time! :)
Since it was wet outside, I knew I had to go with my indoor option for the picnic! :)
You already saw part 1 of the picnic at lunch.
Now I was on to part 2!
I made a variation of a recipe from 101 Cookbooks called Lemon Tofu Cucumber Salad.
My version (Serves 1-2):
Mix together the sauce ingredients and set aside.
- 1.5 T lemon juice
- 1 T EVOO
- pinch of sea salt
- 2 T light Italian Dressing
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon minced dill (see pic below)
I didn’t have fresh so that is what I used.
- 5 oz extra firm tofu
- 1 zucchini
Chop up 5 oz. of extra-firm tofu and 1 zucchini and grill in a skillet until lightly browned. Add crushed black pepper to taste.
Mix together and sprinkle with sunflower seeds! :) I also added 1/2 avocado at the end!
Then I cooked Eric a hamburger wrap, knowing that he would not be pleased with tofu! lol.
I started to assemble our plates and the picnic setting! It was so much fun! Eric had no idea what I was doing…lol.
The candles and flowers:
More food with candles…
Big cushions and a nice comfy blanket…
Our eats on green plates. Eric got to eat off our new Wal Mart plastic leaf platter that we got on sale for $3!! You can’t tell from this pic, but it is huge!
Oh I just LOVED both of these salads!!! :) Such great picnic food!
I thought this shirt was fitting tonight:
Sketchie was sad he couldn’t come in:
We stuffed ourselves with cherries and bread for dessert:
I cleaned my plate. Eric ate everything but the tofu I snuck on his plate :(
I went to the kitchen for 1 minute and I came back and found this!!!!
Asleep wrapped up in his blanket! bahaha
I guess today was just too much excitement for the poor guy!
Well folks, I am off to bake an order! I am feeling much better today because I had some down time periodically throughout the day and took mini breaks! I also loved that I cooked some new recipes today. I find cooking so relaxing- I just zone out!!
Don’t forget to sign up for the Summer Glow Boot Camp if you haven’t done so! Don’t forget tomorrow is a contest giveaway!

Tonight’s question: What are you doing for 4th of July long weekend?
Canadians- How did/are you celebrating Canada Day today?
Do you cook or bake anything out of the ordinary or do you have something that is a tradition with your family/friends?
