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 blocksEach 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 11My 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.
