So.... It's been awhile. I'm going to start blogging because I need somewhere to put my thoughts and I think I'm probably safe enough here, figure no one is reading. I guess I can check my hit stats lol- no clue if anyone is stills subscribed.
Things suck. Big time. I'm sick of things sucking, especially things I can do nothing about. "So I ride my own melt" as Troy Dyer from Reality Bites would say. My husband would say my problem is that I haven't been riding my own melt, or whatever, I don't even think that quote applies in the correct way exactly, but anyway, I'm riding it now. I'll have control where I can.
Which brings me to... dum da dum: Health
Honey and I began training for a 5K early in the summer. We just ran our first one on Saturday, I walked/ran primarily because I spent the whole early morning hours prostrate with a stomach bug. But I showed up and ran 2 of 3 miles, skipped about 3/4ths of mile 2... was apparently white as a ghost but got to see the triumph of my sister who, weeks prior, would freak out about running for 5 consequtive minutes and actually cried during her first 3 mile training run. This time she didn't cry, she smiled. I did want to cry though. I had really built that moment up and not being able to do it sucked. I almost felt like I had trained for nothing. But I didn't want to lose the drive, the momentum. So we came up with another goal.
HoneyBunch, Big and I are going to lose 5 lbs and run the Zombie Run 5K in 5 weeks, and we want to do it in 42 minutes. Currently I'm running about a 50 something to 46 minute 3 miler so at my fastest I still have to cut my time. Plus I'm battling some pretty painful IT Band issues, whatever that means. Actually it means the right side of my hip at the joint all the way down to my foot hurts. I got new great shoes and I notice my knees don't hurt much anymore, but my stupid hip does.
Sos anyway, what am I writing all this for? Mainly to post a picture of my breakfast. And because I thought people on Facebook would get sick of seeing pictures of every little thing I ate. So here is my breakfast.
Egg made in work microwave (crack egg onto little paper plate, salt, pepper, cover with another little paper plate-then cook for 3 rounds of 30 seconds at 30% power. The power of 3, let it be.) Atop that is a slice of lunchmeat. I almost wanted to lie and say it was just plain turkey. But the truth is...it's turkey balogna..so not as healthy. I had a craving, ok? Sliced tomato from my garden and it all rests atop a bed of 5 grain light bread. It's pretty decent. For snack this morning I will also eat a string cheese. I probably won't post that. That would be boring. But who knows... life is uneventful and the best thing that might happen to me today is that I get to eat a good piece of reduced fat string cheese. Beats being yelled at by hostel hotel owners (my line of work). blah. P.S. Spell check isn't working, please forgive me.
