Tuesday: Gates and Waffles

This is what Solo looks like after 3 days at camp.

There was no run today.  I had a bad foot and am still holding out hope for a half marathon on Saturday.  What the hell am I thinking?

Bike:  8 miles/43 minutes

Meals today were more of the same.  Except that after lunch, things went downhill with some sort of stomach thing. So dinner was waffles with peanut butter and some snack mix.

I did manage to clean both the bathrooms, some of the floors and the litterbox. So the afternoon wasn’t a total waste.  And then we watched The Avengers.  I watched it on Thurs as well but it is good enough to watch again. What can I say? I love these movies.

I also managed to change the batteries in our gate remotes.  Michael was all excited about living in a gated community (why?) until his remote stopped working and he had to stop and punch in the code.  He is not sure he wants to buy in a gated community anymore.

What do you think?  Is it worth the hassle for the illusion of safety, living in a gated community?

Daily Mood Alert and Food/Fitness: Mon, May 14

imageMood:  Annoyed.  The dogs are bored cause it has been raining all day.  So I am cooking and then we are going out to see The Avengers.

Food:  Breakfast was coffee and a protein bar.  Lunch was egg beaters and an english muffin.  Then there were carrots, an apple and some strawberries.  And I am going to do my best with this for dinner: Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe –  And now there will be POPCORN!!!!!

Fitness:  This morning was the first day of a Faster 5k program that runs 5 weeks.  So it was speedwork.  6×400 @ faster than race pace.  I got through it!  Worked hard on the treadmill.  It felt good to push like that.
