I’m currently watching Forrest Gump for the first time ever! Can you believe that?! One day, the sous chef, Nick, at work heard me say I had never seen it before so the next day he brought me his copy and told me to go home and watch it. I’ve had it for weeks but tonight seems to be the night! Probably due to the fact that it’s only 7:00 but it feels like 10:00. I feel like I have so much time!
As promised, this afternoon I had a big wedge of banana bread with pb&j:
Perfect fuel for a run except I only ran 4 miles instead of 5 1/2. Today BOTH my shins were killing me. Folks, after much thinking and praying, I just don’t know if I’m meant to be a runner. It kills me to type that because I want to SO bad…..but not if the act of running is not enjoyable to me anymore (aka I’m in tons of pain). It’s just not worth it when there are other activities that I enjoy pain free. I’m going to give it a few days, ice and pray (and kick with a fin in the pool that Ryan claims will heal me) but I might have to focus my efforts into something like yoga and the elliptical machine instead. 🙁 Everyone has their gifts I guess!
When I got back, it was only 5:00 but it felt like 7:00 because it was already getting dark and I was STARVING! This time thing messes me all up! I boiled some potstickers and edamame for a quick and satisfying dinner:
And, later, I had a fage with 1/4th cup pumpkin granola….just can’t get enough!
I’m off to finish my movie and get everything ready for the week….its a short one for me though since I fly out to Chicago on Friday morning!!!!!! Yay!!
