Friday: Miles and Chips
WAHOO! It wasn’t pretty. Or all that easy. But the 10-miler is in the books. I left out nice and early. It felt COLD. And I decided to go on a strange route. Ran some new (to me) streets and parts of the canal. And then turned around and made my way back. I tried to eat some Sports Beans at one point but they were old and stale. And had Propel Zero in my water bottle. Eating something BEFORE I went might have been a wise idea, but I didn’t. And when I got back, I had some fruit punch and a smoothie. No coffee led to a headache later in the day.
Run: 10 miles / 2:03
Meals were a smoothie, a turkey burger with guacamole (homemade) and chips, a plum, a peach, some coffee (finally) and then we had wings, sweet potato fries and ranch dressing for dinner. And then I made a pizookie. Half choc chip and half pb with choc chips. But by then, it was too late and too sweet.
I am not ashamed to say how much I enjoy Pinterest. One of my greatest new recipes came from Pinterest a few weeks ago. And now I am in the middle of a Pinterest inspired project. It is a Paint Chip Calendar, like the one top left. Only my colors are going to be subtle. Actually, I have gone crazy with the paint chips and have just about every color imaginable. But these colors in the top right really appeal to me. Now I just need to find the picture frame. You make a dry erase calendar by using a glass picture frame. All glass is a dry erase surface! Michael’s gave me a 40% off coupon so I think I can score one there tomorrow.
