Guacamole, Chickpea Salad, Pita Taco Thingy.

Today was a good day. Or I should say another good day, this whole week has kinda rocked. No particular reason really, just life is good.

The absolute best part of my day was that Lincoln asked me if I would take him for a run. I could hardly get my shoes on fast enough! I did make him wait long enough for me to snap a couple pictures though.

He’s been showing a little bit of interest in running lately, ever since I called his shoes “running shoes” a few days ago.

I didn’t know how this would go, I figured he’d make it down the street and then make me carry his ass back up the big hill to our house. He actually managed to run all the way to the end of the street and back. A half a mile!

He said he wants me to take him running every Thursday, Friday and Monday now. Whatever that’s about. 🙂

Something super weird has been happening to me for the last couple of days. Like unheard of …

I haven’t been very hungry. Whaaaaaaat?

After 4 miles on the treadmill, an hour of Boxmania and a weight workout today … I should have been hangry. I checked MFP and I had over 1300 calories left for the day. Hungry or not, I’m not about starving my body so I did what any fat girl at heart would do … I ate. Duh.

I made the most random, delicious and calorie dense dinner. Full of healthy fat and good stuff.

Smashed Chickpea Salad, loosely based on this recipe. Chickpeas, red onion, black olives, green olives, cilantro, sea salt and a “glug glug” of olive oil.

Pretty stinkin’ good.

This is the part that made it kind of genius though.

  1. LOVE that Lincoln wants to go running with you! I hope that my little guy wants to run with me when the time comes!

    …and really, that dinner looks AMAZING! Definitely something I’d love to dig into!
