Last week, I went for a walk. It was 2 PM, sunny, and over 80 degrees outside, so running didn’t seem like a great idea. But of course, a couple of blocks down the road, I realized I wanted to run. So I ran. Then I was tired so I walked. This back-and-forth went on for two miles with an average pace of about 14:30. After doing a two-mile loop, I was feeling great and decided to do the loop again. At the end of mile three, I was exhausted, and I easily could have headed back home. But, I had told myself I was doing four miles, and I was determined. Check out my splits:
Hahahaha!!! Think I ran out of steam in mile 4? I practically crawled home. As I walked up the driveway, my husband saw me through the window, and his face looked… concerned. I paced around the house for a few minutes trying to cool down. As I walked by the bathroom, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and suddenly it was clear why my husband had given me such a shocked look. This is what I saw in the mirror:
All of the blood in my body was in my face. The picture really doesn’t do justice to how red my face was, especially in stark contrast to my deathly pale body. Now I know why when I jog by people, rather than give me bright, friendly smiles, they look at me sideways and cross to the other side of the street.
I have a million other things to write about, but you know what day it is! It’s Wednesday, and I have two more hours to get my What I Ate Wednesday post up! If you want to join in on the action, just click the button.
And as always, I will share with you whatever food photos I took during the last week, because you really don’t want to see everything I ate in an entire day. Trust me, you don’t. Unless you like photos of Oreos. Hmm, come to think of it, I do.
On Friday, I had girls night (!!!!) with friends at one of my favorite restaurants, and being the creature of habit that I am, I ordered the same thing I always get… crab cakes with the veggie of the day and sweet potato fries. My meal was tasteogenic, but apparently not photogenic.
On Monday, I finished up the last of my Mama Pea-inspired broiled tofu by putting it on a sandwich thin with spinach and red bell pepper. Yum!
Yesterday, I made a Caitlin-inspired omelette for breakfast and served it up with a side of blackberries.
It tasted sort of boring and I was out of salsa. I like the idea of omelettes, but how do you make them more interesting tasting? Oh I know, BACON.
This morning’s breakfast made me so so so so inexplicably happy. I was trying to find something dairy-free (and almond milk does not taste awesome with my frosted mini wheats, booo). So I had a sandwich thin with Peanut Butter & Co dark chocolate peanut butter and a sliced banana, served with fresh blackberries and blueberries. OMG.
And since I have your attendtion, I want to share with you a picture of my baby girl, Trinity, trying to keep the bright light out of her eyes as she naps.
Oh wait, before you go! Are you curious about kombucha? Or already a fan? Come back tomorrow for a guest post on kombucha by the awesome and inspiring Lindsay from Cotter Crunch! There may or may not be a giveaway to go along with it. 😉
