I'm a Hungry Beast
This has been an interesting week. First off, I have to say that between the two giveaways that I have going on right now, I've "met" a whole bunch of new people, and I look forward to reading more about each of your journey's.
On Wednesday, Mike was home in the morning so I was able to run outside, which is rare during the week. My bruised foot is still bugging me, I can't wear my Birkenstocks (which I live in), and it hurts to lace up my running shoes, but once they're on and I get moving, it's bearable. I went seven miles around my neighborhood, and left my water bottles at home, I figured if I needed water I could stop at one of the water fountains at the various playgrounds. At mile five I came up to a big baseball field, and as I cut across it, between the sunshine and smell and crunch of the grass, it took me right back to my high school field hockey days. The water even tasted the same.
My appetite has really kicked in this week, I'm like a bottomless pit. I was hoping to drop a few lb's by the marathon, but then I keep hearing that you really shouldn't lose weight while training. It seems hard to do at this point anyway. The day after my 17 miler I had a black bean, rice and veggie burrito, and after it was gone, I felt like I could eat another. Today Luke came in my room to tell me he wanted breakfast, and I was like, I'm right there with you buddy, I'm so hungry I could eat my hand.
My whole meat issue is still there. I went for five days without meat, and I was headachey and just didn't feel right, so I went back to eating it once a day. Some days I don't eat it at all, but I'll eat it if Mike makes it, or if it's mixed with something else. I'm definitely getting my fruits and veg in, I roasted a bunch of tomatoes, onions, zucchini and mushrooms to add to a ziti last night, and I'm loving all the summer fruits for my breakfast smoothie. I did have two kitchen disasters the other night, a perfect example of when blogging is distracting. I was heating up/defrosting some vodka sauce, and I'm tweeting/blogging away, Mike is on the phone, and I smell something. As in burning vodka sauce, the pan is completely black on the bottom but I'm trying to salvage it. So then I had to come up with something for dinner. We had two whole wheat burrito wraps left, some chicken, rice, cheese and corn. So I threw together a big quesadilla, and put it in the oven. Flipped it over when it was halfway done, put it back in the oven, then kept blogging. Then I smelled something. Yup, I burned it.
Hooray for Friday and all the good things it comes with it.....my iRun Like A Girl giveaway ends Sunday....and don't forget the Nathan fuel belt giveaway!
