It has been just a crazy few days! But here I am finally updating you on my life!
Let’s starts w/ Wednesday’s Run
I think today was the easiest run I have had yet. Putting aside that I once again forgot my inhaler (I sound like suck a dork!) it was great. It has rained the night before so it was a little muggy outside but it was kind of nice to just get out there and run. The interval app works wonderfully so that was just an added bonus and Tim and I got to talk about the weekend activities. I did get a few more tid-bits on where people lived and who was who’s tutor but I don’t remember most of that but it was interesting when I heard it!
Today I started to realize that it is really important to take care of your body. You wash your face every day right? You brush your teeth every day right? Well, running for me is becoming one of those things. I have really started to see the value is treating yourself well. First off, it’s nice to feel good about yourself. I can’t say for sure whether my body has physically seen any changes from this new adventure but I feel better. I feel like I walk with my head a little higher and that I have some more self-esteem that I was missing before. I mean, don’t get me wrong. Generally speaking I am always an outgoing in-your-face kind of girl but we all have those things about us that make us a little self-conscious. I realized that I feel really darn proud of myself when I tell people I get up in the morning and run and I feel like I want to share it with more people. I mean, I am not that type of person that actually likes to wake up before the sun isn’t out so this has not been an easy task for me but I am trying… and I feel like I am getting there. This may very well be one of the hardest things I have done in my life though. I am constantly challenging my body (especially those big soccer girl legs) to get out there and work themselves. I just know that when I get home and I get in the shower I feel like my body smiles at me and says “thanks”. You know it says “that was tough and I struggled but I got through it and I’m proud of myself.”
So yea I am telling you two things right now… #1 My body talks to me in the shower, try not to be too jealous about that and #2 It feels good to challenge yourself to do something out of the ordinary so let me ask you this… What have you done to challenge your mind or body today? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Check out that baby hu? I made it all by myself haha! I made 2 fried egg whites (1 just isn’t enough) and melted some Munster Cheese on top then added some tomato and basil on an everything bagel thing. I mean this thing tasted like a dream. I can’t even tell you what part of it I loved the most… the mixture of everything was just perfect. I enjoyed it in the car on the way to work even though I had Brody in my face trying to steel it from me. Don’t worry- I would just breathe on him so he would pretend to taste it haha.
Today’s lunch was a delicious Morning Star Burger… so good! It was a veggie burger and it turned out to be burger day in our cafeteria here at work too. So Casey went to buy lunch and snagged me some delicious toppings that I didn’t bring from home. So I enjoyed my burger with 2 pieces of lettuce wrapped around it instead of a run and had tomato and pickle on the burger. I also had 2 of Casey’s curly fries which were very good! Other than that I don’t think I had anything else… or at least I can’t remember.
I wanted to branch out a little for dinner but we hadn’t already thought ahead to thaw anything so we had to go with something we could cook frozen or thaw easily. Tim and I opted for the thaw easily option and got out some salmon from the freezer. It is just plain salmon so once thawed we coated it with hot chili powder or something and then put it on foil and on the grill. While it was cooking I was trying to rummage through the fridge to see what I could do with this and I decided on making a fish taco. We have an enormous amount of tortillas that looked delicious as we walked through Sam’s Club one day so I thought that would be a good open.
The other fillings to my tacos consisted of chopped up tomato, cilantro (yes I LOVE cilantro) lime juice, and some jalapeños. I mixed that all together added a dab of sour cream and salad on top and added some green onions mostly to make it look pretty. And WOW it was so good! I will definitely be making these again and maybe even get Tim to try it. He kept it nice and simple with just the piece of fish and a few side dishes. It still looked really good though but I thought mine looked MUCH better!
We concluded our evening with some high quality TV of course and then headed off to bed early so that Thursday morning wouldn’t feel soooo early.
