Today is Today

That is the way I’m living it.  Breathing and doing everything that I want, and without regret.

But first off I want to thank everyone for taking time to read my Different Kind of Post from last night, seeing as how it was practically a novel.  Your kind worlds and encouragement are just the things that have made me the person that I am and stronger in how I live my life. 

Brad doesn’t want to take much credit for what I wrote about but really, had it not been for getting to know him on that job, working with him, dating him and letting him see sides of me I had never shown before, I would not be where I am today.  Someone who I absolutely adore and <3 has walked into my life, changed it around with or without knowing it and has made me, well, me

I am in his deepest debt.

Anyhow…the return to food.  Today was super slow…only 6 birds, and we’re starting an hour earlier so it’s a bit more time for…me to want to bit my fingers off.  But alas…

I’ve decided to start running in the afternoons/evenings after work so I can shower and stay clean for bed…otherwise i have to take two showers if i run in the morning…such a waste of water!  So i woke up this morning to regular oatsWhat?!?!?!  and it’s like, freak’n 90 here everyday with monstrous humidity!  Thank goodness for AC…:D

Oats with cinnamon, peanuts, cranberries and a nanner.  nom.

It lasted through my 2 mile bike ride to the tower and a few (three) hrs of standing staring at nothing…so I had my snack: pb bompers, cranberries and h2h.

I was still hungry not long after (think seriously, 45 minutes) so i started on my lunch and made it span over an hour and a half.  yeah man: veggie hummus sandwich a carrot and whole grain goldfish.

and then look what we saw!!!  VORTEX!!  Or spout…whatever.  Tornado????  I don’t have news so I can’t find out where it touched down, but it was quite nerve wracking watching it develop then disappear over and over again…

I had would have taken pics of my snacks but we had visitors (gasp!) so i wasn’t taking any to not look, “odd”: apple cinnamon zbar, nakd strawberry bar, small navel orange.  Too many bars, but i was desperate.  I can’t seem to keep myself satisfied these days.

Then I visited some neighbors with my coworker for a while and came back to do my 4 miler in 35 minutes, 10 walking lunges (while swatting as mossies) and 30 bench pushups.

Dinner was quick and leftovers, so not very exciting.  i start off w/ my apple blueberry fruit bowl:

Then a mess of couscous, black beans, salsa, tomatoes, grilled onions and spinach.

And I had more pb bumpers after the fact to satisfy the sweet tooth.

For some reason I’m super pooped, so I’m hitting the hay early.  Again, thank you again for all the kind words on my last post.  You all mean the world to me.  I couldn’t have done it without all of your support!

    Yes, I agree, I loved that post! It was so sweet. It's great to see someone actually with a person that truly cares about them. Too many people these days are just hooking up randomly. It's pretty sad. I'm so happy for you!

    Such a lovely pic of you two! You look fantastic together and the bond you share really shines through the photograph.

    I'll eat porridge no matter what the weather too!

    You're a braver person than I am ~ that vortex would have sent me running for the hills…I'm also so impressed with how you manage to fit in your runs around your demanding job! You have some serious dedication to your sport and are such an inspiration : )

    Brad is so modest….he definitely deserve double credit. :)

  6. Jenn (eating bender) says:

    Oh my gosh! That vortex looks scary! I would have been running no matter how far away it actually was :o)

    I'm so glad you are living life with no regrets. We should all strive to be more like you!

    that's crazy about the spout! cool that you got a picture of it :)

  8. K from ksgoodeats says:

    Oh my gosh, I would have peed my pants if I saw a tornado while up in a tower. Seriously, wet myself!

    Awww Brad! I want to find someone like that!!

    I hear ya on the showering thing. I work all activities around my shower time so I only have to shower once. That funnel cloud is SCARY! Thanks for the playlist, I haven't had time to download any but I'm super excited. :) Another good strengthening move sans workout equipment is wall sits. We used to have to do them ALL the time in volleyball. Really strengthened the quads, hammies, and core.

  10. Mica says:

    Okay, um, that funnel is terrifying. Stay safe in your birdie post!

  11. Jenny says:

    I'm still so in love with you after last nights post — and i think it packed a very special tribute to brad…I'm glad he's able to see now just how crucial of a part he is to your life!

  12. lighterportions says:

    ACK. Tornado/sprout? I would have been freaking OUT seeing that.

    You and Brad are the cutest thing EVER. I'm SO happy for you. :)

    I loved your honest post about your ED-history. Thank you so much for sharing that! Brad seems such a wonderful person, you're blessed to have him around. But please realize too that YOU did a lot of things yourself: you had the courage and I'm proud! You're an inspiration, xxx Julia (Taste of Living)
