Wednesday: Shop by Color

I can TOTALLY be bribed.  I can even bribe myself.  I told myself all day yesterday (and on Twitter and on Facebook) that I could have cupcakes IF I ran the 6 miles this morning.  DONE!  And it was a good 6 miles.  I KILLED the hill that is Central.  Which is more than 1/2 mile long.  I finished with my fastest mile.  And really did feel satisfied with the effort and the results.  WHAT the hell is going on this week?  2 good runs so far.

Run:  6miles / 67:50

Breakfast was…..you guessed it.  A cupcake.  They are just plain, Dunkin Hines Devils Food cupcakes.  No frosting.  PERFECT.

There was an apple and some carrots.

Lunch was yet ANOTHER round of Chicken Tortilla soup.  I think that might be about it for the soup.  I am on the only one in this house eating the leftovers.  And 4 times in one week might be enough.

And then another cupcake.  Hey, at 130 calories apiece and a 6 mile run today, I am good to go on the cupcakes.  And I had a peach (see below).

Dinner was a boneless pork chop with salad and corn.  I dipped the pork chop in the salsa you will read about below.

I ran to Sam’s Club this morning to buy grown-up sized notebooks (see yesterday).  I was also looking for eggs, fruit, chicken sausages (for my sister) and half and half.  What I ended up finding was notebooks, eggs, salsa, PB M&M, pb chips, dish soap and egg beaters. I did manage to resist the OMG-they-are-so-pretty package of ultra fine Sharpies.

So off to Costco I went for fruit, chicken wings, and half and half.  What I got was nectarines, peaches, carrots, corn, half and half and beer.  Proof of the orange food obsession.  I already have sweet potato fries or I would have bought those as well!

Just a quick book recommendation for anyone that needs a good one: The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach.  It was excellent.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  And I don’t at all think it matters if you like baseball or not.  The writing is amazing.
