So the majority of us don’t love Kristen Stewart. And I’ve been so turned off by her for so long, I had no idea they call her K Stew. True story… So thanks for informing me. I am a firm believer you learn something new everyday. I guess we all know what I learned yesterday.
Also, my favorite character at the gym came from Ms. Salty Tooth. Seriously- the guy kissed his muscles in the mirror? Seriously? I didn’t know people actually did that.
I did four miles last night on the trail! And this time, I was able to finish before the rain attacked. Whew! And I even ran an 8:28 pace without being freaked out about being shot down by lightning. Thank goodness. Although I am slightly suspicious that my Nike+ is off and needs to be calibrated again (as in I think I’m a bit faster than what it says- if it were the other way around, I don’t think it would bother me at all- ha). Being the procrastinator that I am, I’ll just worry about that later.
I know my pace wasn’t an improvement due to the copius amounts of sleep I got. Because I slept like crap. Maybe it was all the caffeine I took in to compensate? Or it could have been the most filling salad of all time?Black beans, corn, and the leftover BBQ chicken I made the other day. This is probably one of my favorite lunchtime salads to date. Just sayin’.
I’ve also been meaning to tell you my thoughts on the edamame hummus I picked up at Trader Joe’s about a week ago…It’s ok. But I really do like my standard chick pea hummus better. I think this stuff is a little too creamy for my liking. But it still works well in wraps and such. I don’t hate it. I just don’t love it. Ya know?
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it recently, but this weekend I am volunteering for the Girls on the Run 5k in Chicago. If you’ve never heard of the organization, definitely check it out because they do it in quite a few cities! I think it’s a great mentoring program. Unfortunately I don’t have the schedule that would allow me to do after-school stuff with the girls, but I am glad I get to help out in other ways by volunteering at the races! And hello- I’m supposed to be helping with the tiara decorating stand. If that’s not awesome, I don’t know what is.
Enjoy your Thursday- can you believe how quickly the week has flown by? Love it. Mon and I decided if we do a good job with our workouts, we’re celebrating with a cold beer. Goose Island Summertime brew of course. As long as weight slammer is no where to be found, I plan to kick some elliptical ass. :)
That is all. Peace out, kids…
