Now that's amore.

Caught Doug's cold. Fail. It started to hit me last night at quiz. Woke up this morning feeling like crap and skipped my workout. Kinda bummed. I was planning a 3 mile run to round me out to 20 miles for the week, but I felt like some extra rest would be the better choice.

I don't feel terrible... I made it to work, but I still feel out of it. Congested. Sore throat. Headache. I may/may not leave early for some hot nap action. We'll see.

Anywho, before the germs set in last night, I was feeling pretty good. I ran two miles after work to sort of "re-do" the crappy 2 mile walk/jog session that I did earlier in the morning. Tuesday night, my mom took me out to dinner. Margaritas were had and waaaay too many chips were consumed, along with salsa, queso and a big ol' pork burrito, which I totally inhaled. Came home and had wine and an array of sweets, thus having a crappy night's sleep. Lack of sleep + dehydration + bloat made for the worst morning run attempt ever. But I redeemed myself later in the day and it felt great.

After the run and a shower, I headed to the kitchen. I munched on a hummus salad while I waited for my latest creation to bake in the oven:

Salmon pizza. (The salmon slices are hidden under the tomatoes.) I've been trying to use up the last of the smoked salmon I got for my lox adventure and this. was. the shiiiiz!

Took a tortilla wrap and topped it with: mozzarella, green chile, red onion, smoked salmon and tomatoes.

Yes, the green chile was the odd man out, but it really did add a great touch (I'm biased. So what?).

I was so pleased with how it turned out that I made it again for breakfast this morning! Also looking forward to my banana/PB overnight oats and Greek yogurt for lunch. Brought some grapes, carrots, bell pepper and hummus to munch on in between.

I hate to miss Zumba again since I skipped it last week, but I'll just go with the flow and see how I'm feeling. I've got an awards dinner tomorrow night and a weekend away in the San Luis Valley, so I need to nip this cold in the bud!
