Running Machine

Don’t forget to check out the contest for F-R-E-E Greek yogurt!

Hey guys!  Happy Monday afternoon to all of you :)  Sad as it is to admit, lunch today was rather bo-ring and had NO COLOR whatsoever.  Behold the veggie burger-sandwich thin combo of old:

And the dry, flavorless (unless served with hummus!) Kashi Heart to Heart crackers:

They really weren’t my favorite and I kept getting wheat shreds stuck in my throat.  HACK!

The rest of the afternoon was spent trying to keep my dogs quiet…with this great weather all anyone wants to do is go outside and play!  I tried to get action shots of both, but the only one that came out was this one of Bunker:


During lunch I went for my run/walk, and I did it again pain free!  I did the walk 3 minutes/run 2 minutes combo for 30 minutes, then switched it up to walk 2 minutes/run 3 minutes on the way back, then ran the last mile.  I did the mile in 20 seconds less than I did the other day!  WOOHOO!  I’m turning into a running (NOT racing) machine again!  My prayer (and it truly is a prayer) is that I can continue to build up my strength and eventually be able to run for extended periods of time when I want to. I’m never going to do it again as a way to just burn calories!

When I got back I was so excited that Nate had stopped at Whole Foods and picked up some fruit!  I selected a nectarine from the bag:

BUT before I had a chance to bite into Nate came over and said his was bad.  We checked mine and it was definitely not in good shape either.  Oh well, so it goes.  We might try to go get our money back from Whole Foods, but I just don’t know if we have the energy to do it!

Dinner tonight is going to be some sort of roasted corn and black bean chowder with cheesy crazy crust bread (recipe to come!).  Then methinks I should hit up the grocery store because we are severely lacking in the fruits and veggies department!

I’m going to go with one of Kelly’s questions tonight:  What’s your most embarrassing story? Mine involves de-pantsing a complete stranger (yes you read that correctly, email me if you need details!), falling off of my bike on the busiest street in my college town (I have scars on my toes – yes, my toes – to prove it!), and getting pooped on by a bird in Mexico.  I promise I’m normal 😉
