After a busy few days I was proud that I dragged myself out of bed this morning for a short run. My legs felt a little tight after BodyPump last night, but they loosened up after a few minutes.
I am trying to psych myself up for a 6 mile run tomorrow. The weather should be nice and cool and I have a cute new pair of running short to test out. New running clothes always keep me motivated
Even though we have had dinner pretty late this week, we have still managed to have some yummy, healthy meals.
Wednesday I made a salad with local corn scraped off the cob, tomatoes, avocado, and jalapenos. Just a little salt, pepper, lime juice, and olive oil for dressing.

Last night Jerry took charge of dinner. He made steak and veggie skewers on the grill.
I made whole wheat couscous and a Dijon vinaigrette. I mixed some fresh parsley and basil into the couscous and put my veggies on top. I drizzled the dressing on top. So good!
These two meals are an example of why I love summer cooking so much. Grilled food, fresh flavors. Local sweet corn, and tomatoes from a friend’s garden. I could eat like this all year!
Stay tuned later today for a happy hour post, featuring a delicious new martini recipe!
