I’ve been having some trouble sleeping lately, so I was up early, early on Saturday morning. After the usual coffee and a clif bar, I joined Alma on the first part of her long run. We ran in Central Park and it was sunny and hot enough to run in just a sports bra! I’ll get my vitamin D anyway I can – my recent blood tests showed that I’m deficient. eek! I ended up running about 8 miles in 1 hour, 16 minutes. Yahoo! This was my longest run since April’s Boston marathon. I definitely can’t run as fast as I was able to go this past winter/spring, but I was very happy with today’s effort. After some stretching and re-hydrating, it was time for a real breakfast!
Love in a bowl: 1 cup of non-fat greek yogurt, sliced banana, slice peach, scoop of peanut butter, and a scoop of jam.
After a shower and a mad dash to the bus station, I caught the 1pm bus to Wilkes-Barre. On board, I snacked on a fresh Jersey peach, one of Angela’s Glo Bars (so chewy and delicious!), and a sample of Kashi Honey Sunshine.
After a long, but uneventful bus ride I arrived in Wilkes-Barre. I immediately headed up to the AT&T store to procure a new phone (!!!). I came thisclose to getting the iphone, but was put off by the mandatory $30/month data plan. Around 6pm, my family and I headed out to dinner at a local pizza place that I L-O-V-E: Sabatini’s Pizza
Sisters at Sabatini’s:

I started off with a side salad with french dressing –
And then the table shared an order of crispy fries:
I’m really glad that we had some appetizers, because it took awhile for our pizza to come out. But when it finally did arrive at the table, it was SO good. I love the whole wheat crust at Sabatini’s. It’s thin and chewy and reminds me of fresh dough that you’d whip up in your own kitchen. We ordered the whole wheat pizza with onions. I ate quite a few yum slices.
After stuffing my tum with pizza, I returned home and took a little walk. And then it was time for wine! Joe, Ali, and I split a bottle of Riesling while chatting on the outside deck of a local bar. It was a lovely night, but I could definitely notice a bit of fall chill in the air.
I didn’t get home until well after midnight and I was in need of a snack. I ended up having some cheerios with a spoonful of peanut butter on top. It wasn’t exactly what I was craving (couldn’t decide what I wanted), but it did the trick and filled me up.
Vegetarian Challenge Update: Saturday was Day 5, still going strong!
Question: Do you have a favorite food/restaurant that reminds you of your childhood? For me, it’s weekend pizza nights with my family!
