Maybe tennis isn't so bad...

I actually WON my tennis match tonight!!!  Well, Peter, my partner, and I won it.  But we won.  9-2.  Pretty great!  Maybe I don't hate tennis after all.  Maybe I'm just a sore loser.  I think I played well though.  My serve is improving and I'm getting more comfortable.  Yay!
Prior to my match I snacked on this baby:

I actually, really really liked it.  Pretty natural ingredient list too: natural peanut butter, organic rolled oats, brown rice flour, chocolate chips, rice crisps, soy protein, flax, cane juice, and sea salt.  I might try and and replicate it myself.  Maybe I was just hungry, but it was like a peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips.  Yum!  And it seemed to fuel me for the match well too.  I was running all over the court and had a couple good saves :)
When I got home I surveyed the fridge and knew I again had to make something with my massive supply of veggies.  I decided to do one of my favorite combos: green beans with almonds.  I sauteed green beans in a little butter and added crushed almonds to the pan and sauteed them a little more.  The green beans were still kinda crunchy so I also added a little water and covered them to steam them a little.  I served them with two crackers with some Tuscan chicken salad on the side.

I NEED to go watch Glee! Apparently it rocked and I still haven't seen it yet, because I ran with Michelle (my first 4 miles since the half!) last night and then got side tracked making and freezing cheese and broccoli soup last night and didn't watch! Oh well at least it's TIVO'd and I can fast forward through the commercials :)

Yay so proud of you for doing well in tennis! Glad you like it more!

And yes, Glee rocked last night! I'm about to watch it again :)

Congrats on the win! I never congratulated you on your half marathon either. Great job! It sounds pretty brutal. Glad your quad didn't act up.

Soooo, you easily prepped for that race in a short amount of time. Whatcha got planned next? :)

Oh, and your garmin will always be little off. It would be impossible to run the exact tangents they measured the course with. At least you can have the satisfaction of knowing your pace was slightly faster :)

It would be more concerning if your Garmin showed the course measuring short.

I want to reach through the computer screen and grab one of those green beans. What's in the chicken salad? That looks really good too.

It's Tuscan Chicken salad with artichoke hearts, sundried tomato, and olives in it. Pretty yummy stuff!
