Today, I saw this tweet from Ada:
Ada is the last (but not least!) member of my Ragnar team that I still have to introduce you to. Many of you know her story from watching her on The Biggest Loser: Season 10, but she's working on a guest post like the rest of the team, and I will post that to share with you when she is finished with it--you know, after she's done with her 140.6 mile race and all ;)

I got kind of bored with it today, so I only did five sets, and then I did some other weight-bearing leg exercises--squats, lunges, etc. And of course, I foam rolled my IT band. Hoping for a great
I made a loaf of homemade French bread today, and I used it to make really yummy grilled cheese sandwiches--fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and tomato slices on the homemade bread. (I've been obsessing about fresh mozzarella ever since I went to Panera on Sunday). I should have taken a picture, but I was too busy inhaling it. If there is one thing I've noticed over the past week of not eating meat, it's that I feel full for so much longer. My appetite has decreased a lot. I have a lot of leftover fresh mozzarella, so I think I'll be making homemade pizza for dinner tomorrow.
This is a short post, but I really don't have anything else to say! I'll leave you with a
