Tuesdays are never my cup of tea (yes, Marie, it’s more grandma terminology!).
Even though I was feeling a little funky, I made the best of it.
Because you guys are cool. And you made me feel better about how hard I’ve been on myself about the silly ol’ race from last weekend. Thanks.
And because I felt a little better about that, I decided to do a run instead of the elliptical. Ironically, this is after my declaration of wanting to cut back on running and do more cross training. Eh. What are ya gonna do? It was a Tuesday…
I decided to do 3 miles and make the most of it. So I did. And ended up with an 8:12 pace. You have no idea how happy I was! My friend Mon was working out, too, and looked over at me with a raised eye when I kept upping the speed. She knew what was going down.
To be honest, it’s funny that the run went so smoothly. The boss took us out for mexican food today. After an order of enchiladas, my workout could have easily gone south- I think we all remember the pizza and running combo and how big of a disaster that was! Or maybe I just remember it? Insert shudders here…
After all that, I came home and decided against what I had planned for dinner. I wasn’t feelin’ it (still not hungry after the big lunch maybe?). So I went for something classic:Sure, it wasn’t the most balanced option. My whole day was pretty carb heavy. But I wanted a peanut butter sandwich, damnit!
I think that’s one thing us kooky kids who sometimes blog or take pictures of our food have to be mindful of. Quite a few of the bloggers I read have talked about it. And some have even stopped taking pictures altogether because of the pressure to eat a certain way. I’ll admit- there’s a sometimes a nagging feeling to keep every day completely balanced and healthy. But what happens when you’re craving something different? Or just don’t feel like cooking? Not sure about you, but when I feel like this and even though there was probably a better option (“health-wise”) in my refrigerator, I’m eating the pb sandwich…
Gotta keep the brain receptors happy, too- ya know?
