I drove over 170 miles today to get to Whole Foods, Central Market HEB, Target Greatland and another Target. Am I insane?!?!?!?!
Yes, why yes I am.
But first to yesterday…pretty mellow day. We def had more birds than normal at a count of 28 migrating, with more that were seen soaring and not going anywhere. Locals, they can’t decide what they want to do. But I had some different eats…as I had to be creative since I was running out of food. Quick picture recap:
PB, grapes and apples (2 mini)
1/2 avocado w/ tomato and garlic, crackers and carrots
Snack was brownie zbar
Couscous fried “rice” (no rice…can’t think of a more clever name) with mixed veggies and 1 egg and two whites.
The last of these suckers!!!
Exercise for the day was 8 miles of biking…my butt still hurts.
And today, my only day off for the week, was the busiest freak’n day ever!!!
6.30 am: Up and run woman! Damn my knee felt great, too bad my whole body wasn’t up to speed with that…or the mossies that were absolutely everywhere. Reminder to self: do not run here without a shirt no matter how hot it is…you will again end up with over 15 bites on your back. Yes, I counted. Oh yeah, but 5 miles in total, 41 minutes baby…at least those mossies were good for something; faster time!
7.30 am: shower and eat: kashi go lean crunch, h2h, banana, almond breeze.
9.00 am: 25 miles north to Anahuac and I’m at the Laundromat to clean so much clothes…
10.30 am: drive 50+ miles to southeast Houston to many stores…
11.15 am: have cranberry and pb sandwich and apple while driving…
12.00 pm to 6.15 pm: Spend lots of time in mall stores, Whole Foods, Target Greatland, Central Market HEB, Target, Walmart…eat snacks like Super Protein Odwalla bar and Whole Food Salt and Olive Oil Organic Popcorn…car and drive home.
7:30 pm: Dinner! Last of my grapes (thank goodness the volunteer Jen worked with today was kind enough to surprise us with some!) and a black bean/corn/salsa/tomato/spinach burrito. nom nom.
And of course. One of my many Whole Foods Purchases: Pb yogurt covered pretzels drizzled with chocolate. Yeahhhhhhhhhh…too bad they tasted kinda flat. Boooooooooo.
Whew! I’m going to sleep very well tonight, despite the springs of my mattress shooting into my back (yes mom, I forgot to buy the bed foam… I will continue to suffer). Up for another run tomorrow and an even longer day on the tower…we’ve gone from 8 to 9 hrs of watch time…:| Don’t know how I feel about that, since there are still NO BIRDS. Ok, there are, but not when we’re there…
