Funny Tummy

Well I’m keeping my fingers crossed this rain clears up because we have lawn tickets for Rascal Flatts tonight!!!! gah! Concerts not till 8:00 though tonight so we have time to stop raining and dry out. Hopefully.

Surprisingly I have not been hungry AT ALL today. This is pretty much the strangest thing ever because usually when I run any distance over 2 miles, I am famished and graze like a beast all day long. Today I ran 5 miles and food is not appealing at all. What gives? The heat? The treadmill? Is it bad I consider myself to sort of have ran a “fake” 5 miles since it was on the treadmill? I need to get that out of my head.

Regardless, I did eat (obviously) and I ate a pretty killer sandwich at that.

I bought one of those rotisserie chickens at Costco on Thursday ($4.99 baby!) and sliced her up for a sammie today. This is breast meat (no skin) with hummus, pickles, spicy mustard and greens on Ezekiel bread. Even though I wasn’t technically starving it was still delicious!
‘Specially served with a juicy peach!

The majority of my day so far has been spent poolside (before the monsoon hit) and living vicariously through Kath, Jenn and MizFit as they live it up at BlogHer09, which is being held in one of my very favorite cities ever: Chicago.  Just found out that BlogHer10 though is in NYC and you better believe I will be there!
Tonight we are eating and having pre-concert cocktails at The Wine Exchange and then Erin’s boyfriend is dropping us off at the concert….Ryan will be picking us up! This IS my birthday present after all! 😉
I was at the Rascal Flatts concert three years ago here and I won’t go into details about the craziness of that night. Let’s just say Jenna was one week away from 21 and there may or may not have been jager bombs involved. Note that in the past three years I have not TOUCHED (or smelled) anything with jager in it. Just sayin’.
Gotta get my cowboy boots on! ow ow!

    I have heard that sometimes when you work out at an intense level it will actually decrease your appetite. I have had some experience with this also so I believe it’s true. Maybe that’s what’s going on with your stomache today.

    Have fun tonight! And agreeing with Christianne, sometimes coupling heat & pushing myself harder has decreased my appetite, so don’t worry too much, it will probably come back tomorrow full force!

    Treadmill running *definitely* counts! It’s slightly different than being outside, but it’s still a great workout!

    Have fun tonight, but stay away from Jager. 😉

    The heat definitely affects my hunger, too. But then it comes back full force the next day! I hope the rain stops!

    Sometimes I am not AT ALL hungry after a longer run either. It goes one way or the other – either I am ravenous and graze all day like you said or I just don’t want anything. Weird!

    Yummy looking sammy! Rotisserie chickens are the best news. I love Rascal Flatts – have a blast! Last time I went to one of their shows it poured rain, and they still rocked my socks off. Have fun!

    Hey Jenna, maybe it was the excitement about the concert??! I always get a weird belly when I’m excited – I lose my appetite completely. Have a wonderful time at the concert!

    Hummus + mustard + pickles has got to be one of the best sandwich condiment combos ever. I’ve been mixing spicy mustard and Sriracha for a while now, and have a batch of homemade pickles in the fridge. Now for the hummus…!

    (I just started my blog and have you on my blogroll; I love keeping up with you and your adventures!)

    My last Rascal Flatts experience was a birthday gift as well. However, due to the lines and prices I nursed the same draft beer (all they had!) all night…
