Boy do I have some eats for you. Mostly a picture post as I’m running around, packing to leave tomorrow for SACRAMENTO!!! I don’t know how long I’m going to be up there, but I really don’t care, because I’m going to be spending time with my best friend Emily of almost 20 years. Yes, TWENTY YEARS. I mean, how could you not love this girl?
How cute are we? And that’s Kindergarten, I was 4. Yes, I started young, but it’s only because my birthday is just after school starts in September.
Do I have any readers/bloggers in the Sacramento area? Or San Francisco? I know I’ll be making my way over there at least once, maybe a few more times if I can, so I’d love to have a blogger meetup! Email me and let me know!
After our late french toast breakfast yesterday I did nothing but write, check out blogs, and watch TV on our new 40 inch Flat Screen TV! I was lazy…I did do some stretching though…does that count for anything?
My lunch was inhaled as I made grilled cheese for the brohams and pappi, but was definitely not as Hugh-Ass as some other salads in the blog world: spinach, carrot, tomato, cucumber, celery and hummus
along with an orange…
and soon followed by a Granny Smith Apple, heated with one of my PB Bars on top. Sooooo goood. You will see this again.
Since we ate so late I had a simple snack in the evening: grapes and carrots
Dinner was late, quick and simple. We had a bunch of leftover crackers from Thanksgiving so I paired up the Water Crackers with a Lite Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge, Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus, and some baby carrots.
And had almost the rest of my blackberry bread…it’s the second to the last piece.
I was really tired last night, so I hit the hay early, rising well rested for the 10 miler I had planned for today!
I woke up insanely early, but laid in bed for a while…because it was simply too cold. I finally rolled off my bed
inflated mattress and had my staple breakfast of a piece of whole wheat bread, a tablespoon of peanut butter, and a banana (normally it’s an apple, but I wanted a banana).
When I run at home, I have to run city blocks. Each side of the blocks, are a half mile long, so it’s pretty easy to figure out your route and distance. I had planned on doing 10 miles, but because I’m lacking my normal math skills, I ended up doing 11. My bad. My time is what led me to understand that I added in an extra mile…I knew I wasn’t running at a 10.30 pace (not that that’s bad, but I knew I wasn’t going that speed)!
Oh, but since the San Antonio 1/2 Marathon, I thought I would show you what I have to do to my toes every time I do a long run:
Love the tape. Love the tape…
I was dehydrated as ever by the time I got home, as all the salt had been taken out through my pores, and were evident by all the crystals planted all over my face. So I guzzled 24oz of good ol’ H2O.
I cleaned up and finally got myself some food. I always crave eggs after I run, so of course I have to give into my cravings, right? One egg and two whites later, combined with a lite Laughing Cow Cheese, ww pita, tomato and spinach I was stuffing my face.
And then I had my new favorite snack: heated apple and PB bar. Delish.
Btw, this is where I want to go. The newspaper has influenced me so:
Now if only my car would stop ripping me of my savings so I could go out and do something fun. Gosh.
I’ll be back to post tonight before I leave tomorrow morning for my nice drive to Sacramento. And be forewarned, it’s going to be a pretty deep post.
