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.


About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
