It was just one of those days. I packed my lunch last night right after eating my delicious grilled dinner. I was comfortably full, and not in an eating kind of place. That turned out a little like grocery shopping hungry, only in reverse… I got to work today to remember I’d packed a few standard snacks…and not much else. It was plenty, calorie-wise, but not anything I actually wanted to eat. I typically get pretty excited about my food–I make it pretty, lots of variety, etc. Today I had my morning snack (same every time) of cheese, almonds, grapes, and a boiled egg (this sounds like a lot, but I’ve got it (over)thought out to 213 calories). Lunch was an ounce of 97% ff ham wrapped around a slice of string cheese with a lil horseradish (122) and a smoothie (383, it was giant). Some choco cheerios with coconut milk and a fiber one bar (WHY did I even pack that?? I don’t like them) rounded out my evening…at just under a thousand. Leaving five HUNDRED calories for tonight, and one HUNGRY lady seriously trying hard NOT to hit the hospital cafeteria, where the good items on the salad bar are outnumbered 3:1 and the fried food is pretty much the only thing that tastes good… I made it, and came home, and had a little dinner (yeah, I admit, I saved a few calories for a glass of wine, too… and there it is. One more day. Oh, and all morning, I felt like I had a rock in my shoe. Turns out, it was a splinter in my sock, which moved into my foot while I continued on my merry way. I think I got it all out, but my foot has a swollen, still sore spot on it that makes me wonder. Grrr.
Tomorrow is a run day, and I’ll be done with C25K. I can’t decide which plan to do next. There’s bridge to 10K, which would take me back to intervals, or there’s one hour runner, which would stay with 30 minutes for a week or so, then gradually add in one longer run/week. I’m sort of leaning toward OHR, but I haven’t committed. Silly as it is, I kind of think I’d miss the app telling me what to do, and I can’t find one for OHR…yes, I know, how hard is it to set timers on an iPod. I don’t know. I’m a Libra. No matter what, I’ll do something. Had to back out of the Komen run next month because 3 out of 4 kids have things going on that day that I need to participate in. Now I need to find another to sign up for, but I’m a little nervous. For one thing, I’ll be showing up & doing whatever it is alone, and for another…well, what if I pick something where people are all serious & competitive & stuff, and here I am, just trotting along like a turtle? I’m ok being slow, but what if I’m dead last? It could happen, people.
There are a few other ideas bouncing around, but nothing I can really string together into a pretty blog at the moment. Peace & love, y’all!
