Today was a good day. Not great, but good.
This morning Tim ate his first breakfast cookie! He has been complaining that his normal breakfasts (either a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios or a peanut butter sandwich) don’t hold him over until lunch. I made it my mission to make him a filling breakfast that tasted good too! The verdict? He thought it took too long to eat (he’s a slow eater generally). I asked him if it was delicious, and his response was, “Well, you’re a healthy eater, so it’s delicious for you, but maybe not delicious for normal people, like steak, and bacon are.”
So, I’ll take that as a mixed review. I tried. I think I am going to start packing him a morning snack instead.
I think I need a bigger lunch box.
Same lunch as yesterday, with the last sweet wheat Western Bagel instead of the corn muffin.
I can’t get enough of clementines lately. I ate 3 today and might have another before bed! They’re so tiny, but they take a long time to eat. Andplusalso they’re pretty.
I have successfully polished off one of the two bags of spinach so far this week. Success!
Unfortunately, the volume trick didn’t work for me today. I was hangry. Around 3 o’clock, I had a Clif Mountain Mix Mojo bar. I looove these things—salty and sweet, with nuts and raisins and seeds and chocolate chips and pretzels…yum.
But, yeah. Didn’t hold me. I feel like a bottomless pit today!
My stomach felt like it was eating itself by the time I got to the gym, but today was just 3 miles so I powered through anyway. Since I had some lung trouble yesterday, I took my inhaler before I ran and oh my gosh, what a difference! This was an AWESOME run. I pushed my speed and it felt great. I really think sometimes I’m being a little too conservative with my pace and I need to crank it up a bit. I did:
- 0-0.5 miles at 6.1 mph
- 0.5-1.0 miles at 6.2 mph
- 1.0-1.5 miles at 6.3 mph
- 1.5-2.0 miles at 6.4 mph
- 2.0-2.33 miles at 6.5 mph
- 2.33-2.66 miles at 6.6 mph
- 2.66-2.9 miles at 6.7 mph
- 2.9-3.0 miles at 7.0 mph
Final total? 3.0 miles in 28:15. Boo. Yah. I felt like I could keep going, too!
Anyway, we just ate dinner (burger on a sammich thin and brown rice) and I already feel hangry again. Guess it’s just one of those hollow leg days!
I’m off to prepare a rant-y post for tomorrow. Get excited, because I am one angry bear!
What do you do on bottomless pit days? Feed it or fight it?
