Thanks for the nice comments yesterday about my flashback fat feelings. It just nice sometimes to admit to these things and know you aren’t alone. So, I hit the gym for run day today. I set the treadmill at 5.5 mph and just chugged it out while listening to my player. I had downloaded Casandra Forsythe‘s podcast as I mentioned yesterday. You know, I liked listening to people talk while jogging. I normally listen to music, but this maybe made the time go by faster? I don’t know why that would be. It made me think some and nod my head in agreement a lot. Sometimes I didn’t quite agree with what was said. I really liked how this interview was 2 real women talking about fitness in a way that isn’t all magazine headline and ‘lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks’ kind of thing. Also interesting to note is that Cassandra is quite far into a pregnancy, so she also talks a lot about what she does and does not do being pregnant. They also brought up a great point about how women just always aren’t nice to each other (or themselves). We cannot appreciate someone for just being, but there has to be a “She’s too skinny/fat/muscular/tall/short/old/wrinkled/etc” thrown in there. Whatever that blank is. Why is that?? Quite a long interview, too. It was about an hour and got me most of the way through my run, which was 6 miles.
I was ready to eat! I wanted a fast breakfast, so it was Cream of Wheat time! Made with a mashed banana, cinnamon, and topped with the last of the pecan butter and some chips. These are regular size chips, and it looks like so few compared to the minis! They still got nice and melty, though.
There’s some chip dust on there, too, from the end of the bag. I was sad when the bowl was done. 🙂
Fun note: I received a wonderful email from Brad Schoenfeld and I about fell over! You know that I recommend a couple of his books 28-Day-Shapeover and Sculpting Her Body Perfect. Anyway, he apparently stumbled across my blog and he mentioned me on his blog! I was so flattered! Eeeeeee!!!!!!!! You all know how I loves my lifting 😀
Still in the ‘use things up’ mode in the house. We have a lot of food! Lunch was the rest of the greek yogurt with a little agave, some Special K Protein cereal and strawberries.
I like the Special K, but I noticed it has HFCS in it. Booo…. Doesn’t stop me from snacking in it though, I noticed. LOL
I am snacky snacky lately. I’ve been swamped with stuff in the last few days and just tend to eat. Not to mention the long run. I tell you, wish I were earning more money for how busy I am!
Dinner was a pizza made from a Josef’s Pita. These are nice and soft and make a good crust, if not a little thin.
Topped with chicken, feta cheese and a piece of crumbled bacon (couldn’t resist the last piece that John cooked…..mmmmm…. bacon).
I have made so many spelling errors tonight. I made peanut butter after dinner, and managed to slice my finger cleaning off the blade. See what happens when you try to do stuff yourself 🙄
Owie. It always seems like when I cut myself, it is where the digit bends, and that makes it hard to type. Of course, my job requires typing all day long, so I’ll probably be swearing some tomorrow LOL! Thank goodness for spell checker. Going to have some pineapple later for a snack. Good thing that is already cut up
