Bacon, A Wrap And Pesto

Happy Saturday! The forecast calls for thunderstorms today but I have  my fingers crossed it won’t be raining on my run this morning. But who knows haha. Hopefully the sun is shining for you today. Have a great day 🙂

Scrambled Eggs and Bacon

Alex decided to work from home yesterday and we somehow had extra time in the morning. Extra time before work meant that we got to make bacon and eggs for breakfast. Any Friday that starts with bacon means you know it’s going to be a good day.


We ran out of bread the other day so yesterday’s lunch looked a bit different. Instead of my usual peanut butter sandwich, I made a wrap with some deli meat, cheese, lettuce and mustard. I’ve decided that wraps need to make a come back in my life because I love them but haven’t made them at home in forever. The rest of lunch was my usual carrots, pretzels and spicy hummus.


After work, I changed and headed out for a hot and humid run. The workout started off with two faster warm up miles before alternating between 200m at 7:40-7:50 pace and 200m recovery walk for 3 miles. Since it was so hot I was dripping in sweat which means you know it was a good workout! Alex, Bailey and I went on a walk once I had stretched and foam rolled.


Once I took a much needed shower, I kept reading my book. During lunch I started The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti. It’s the story of high schooler Hawthorn who becomes fascinated by Lizzie Lovett’s disappearance. Hawthorn thinks it’s the best think to happy to her sleepy town and ends up inserting herself in the investigation. Shortly after Lizzie disappears, Hawthorn comes up with her own theory on what caused the disappearance. It’s a great quick read so far.


For dinner we kept it super simple and just made pesto and tortellini. We watched a bit of The Office after dinner before playing with Bailey. To end the night, we watched the Steve Martin and Martin Short comedy special on Netflix. It was pretty funny and there was no crude humor and almost no swearing which was nice. Definitely worth a watch in my opinion.

Question of the day: What was one of the best things you ate yesterday?

  1. Eggs for breakfast on a Friday are pretty delish! Your pesto tortellini looks good too. Hope you have a nice weekend.


  2. Yum, now I’m craving a good wrap! That’s a fast pace, girlfriend! Hmm favorite thing I ate yesterday— probably my stuffed sweet potato, I put in tempeh, melted cottage cheese, sautéed veggies, and hummus. It’s my most recent kick! XO


  3. I used to eat wraps almost every day in high school. Bring them back!!! Your pesto dish of course looks delicious. I bought some vegan pesto today from Trader Joe’s and will be diving into it very soon.

    I had Chipotle yesterday- does that count?! 🙂


    1. I somehow forget about wraps unless I’m out somewhere. So good!! I’ve always wondered how the vegan pesto from TJ’s is since I’ve seen people with it on Instagram.

      I haven’t had Chipotle in so long! The hot salsa from there is heavenly 🙂


  4. I loved the Steve Martin & Martin Short comedy! At first I wasn’t sure about it but then it got better. I would also recommend it. Also, that wrap looks delicious.
