Mind over matter
Tuesday night, I mentioned that I wanted to go for a run in the morning, since I knew it was unlikely that I’d be able to “fit it in” later in the day with my schedule the way it was.
The night before, I laid out my clothes and packed my lunch so I would save time in the morning.
Like my Cartman tooth fairy in the background? Ha ha.
When I went to sleep that night, I thought there was no way I was going to be able to get up and do it. Or if I did get up, it would be raining. You know, excuses.
Well, I DID IT! I got out the door, warmed up, ran the course I had planned out in my head, and then cooled down for a total of 25 minutes (and around 2 miles total). All before breakfast!
Speaking of which, a green monster has never tasted so good…cheers!
It felt so good to start the day off that way. Might have to keep this up?
Mid-morning I snacked on some soy yogurt and Ezekiel cereal. Starting to become old news ;-)
Lunch was leftover falafel and red potatoes. Finally zee red potatoes are finished :)
Mid-afternoon, I snacked on some carrots and hummus. I had some tea too but no chocolate today. See, not everything has to be everyday :)
Wednesday is usually the highlight of my week because it is when us girls get together for a girl’s night potluck dinner. This week, Courtney had the main dish and she made an amazing looking baked ziti!
And Aleta brought some amazing looking warm bread :)
And I brought broccoli, hehe. Figures.
Since I’m not really eating dairy these days (I haven’t really told anyone yet unless they happen to read this since I’m still experimenting), I peeled back the cheese a bit and scooped out some pasta.
It was delicious, as was the bread that I went back and got another piece of!
Lots of carbs stuffed me and made me a little bloated. I remember now why I don’t usually eat much pasta. But everything tasted great!
Dessert didn’t thrill me too much. First, this was a sour cream Angel food cake which tells me it is not vegan (which I knew already). And I think it would’ve been better with something on it?
I probably should’ve just passed on it but I gave it a try anyway for some reason. Oh well, hopefully dessert night next week will be better.
It was a really good night with the girls too. We watched the “Dancing with the Stars” results show and thank goodness, Chuck Liddell is going to be around another week!
We also watched that new show “Glee” which was pretty cute. But I’m trying not to pick up any new shows. I think I could actually live without television most of the time ;-)
I have another long post coming up of today’s activities, so don’t go too far!
