Black Bean Fajita Meatball Pitas w/Spinach Salad

Ground beef mixed with mashed black beans & spices and then oven baked. Nestled in a whole wheat pita with yogurt cilantro sauce, onions, green bell peppers & avocado. The meatballs are hiding underneath the veggies & yogurt, but there are 3 in there! Recipe from Clean Eating Magazine.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Coffee Cake w/Fresh Strawberries

Strawberry-Rhubarb Coffee Cake w/Fresh Strawberries

Dessert was a slice of Strawberry-Rhubarb Cake from Starbucks (split in half to share) and some wonderful fresh strawberries from the local farm. Look at how red they are! They were tart and sweet all at once. Speaking of Starbucks, have you tried the Iced Passion Tea? I get mine unsweetened (but it still looks like they “pump” something in there… anyone know the ingredients in this???). Hopefully its not too bad ingredient-wise because I do love these! So refreshing for summer, especially since I’m cutting back on coffee (some).

Went back to The Shred today, after skipping a day. So far I’m at L1D5. I’m not sure if it is because I skipped a day, but it seemed harder! But it also seemed to go faster. I am now doing it with music-only (no verbal instructions) since I am bored of hearing the same “conversation” with Jillian every single day. Tonight I also had an awesome run, so awesome that I went home and signed up for my first 5k! The kicker? It is in 2 days! A somewhat spontaneous decision, and I’m a little nervous since I’m a slow runner (more of a slogger). So I’m taking the next day off from running to rest up and be ready. The thing I am dreading most is getting up so early on a weekend!!! The weather forecast looks nice so far – 70 and sunny. Hopefully I won’t come in last place! 🙂
