Self-appointed DL, day two.
Today I tried another new product–Yoplait’s Greek yogurt, this time in Honey Vanilla. I liked this flavor better than the strawberry–it was more Greek yogurty to me! I enjoyed it with some frozen strawberries. Except when it’s seasonal, I buy almost exclusively frozen fruit. It’s cheaper, and provided there’s no sugar added, it’s just as healthy as fresh. And you don’t have to worry about it spoiling!
Note to self: bring eggs for lunch tomorrow. You’ve gone to the microwave the last two days at lunch and gone “hmm, I wish I had eggs.” Take it as a sign. Eat the eggs.
So much to do!
Moving right along, instead of running, I decided to do the OPPOSITE of healthy and make delicious Valentine’s cupcakes to foist on my co-workers. (And Tim’s.) I refrained from purchasing us Batman and Glee valentines to distribute as well. Red velvet, with cream cheese frosting dyed pink and red sugar sprinkles!
Re: Valentine’s Day. You know, I’m pretty okay with it. I get annoyed with all the people that are like, “UGH It’s so CORPORATE and invented by HALLMARK, WE show our love EVERY DAY.” Well, yeah. So do we. But really, is it that bad to have an excuse to go out and have dinner and eat some candy? No. Especially because January to April is pretty barren as far as holidays go. We aren’t doing much, we’ll go out to dinner (which we do most Saturdays anyway), and I bought Tim a card and a small gift. (Emphasis on small.) Generally, this year, what with the wedding and all, we’re trying to not burn out on celebrating our love so chill is the key word.
Anyway, tomorrow I’m going to try to run again. I’m also going to altogether overhaul the rest of my training schedule–I’d built in an extra week just in case something like this happened, so I’m going to do this week’s running next week, and so on.
Tomorrow’s schedule technically says I should run 7 miles. Honestly, I’ve been really excited about this for a long time. My personal distance record (PDR, aka, the longest I’ve ever run) was 7 miles, and it’s been over a year since I’ve done that. I was planning on making my 7 miler a 7.1 miler just so I could say I broke it! Anyway, I will probably just shoot to do what I can–if I’m pain-free, I might take it to 4 or 5 miles, but if I don’t want to do my longest run ever right after coming back from an injury. Doesn’t seem smart to me. But anyway, I WILL break that PDR…probably just next week, not this week. Such is life.
What are your plans for V-Day? Love it, hate it, in it for the chocolate?
