...and ditzy too. For example on the no brain part - I just made kale. I put most of it in a bowl for dinner to saute later. I put a handful in a cup to make a smoothie (Haven't had one in a while). I took out the greens + powder and put it in the bowl for dinner. Ughhhh. Gross. I don't think anymore.
And yes, I have no self control over eating when I am at home. I try all these new recipes and am my own taste tester. I have food available to me all day long. As soon as I feel any sign of hunger, I can act on it (not so when at work). Oh well, I wouldn't change the staying at home/working thing but it does make it challenging. I wish I could continue the calorie counting - I just can't keep it together! I think blogging makes me fat too - reading blogs with all of these great recipes. Even though they are **mostly** healthy, it is still extra food like desserts. Check out this one for some yummy vegan recipes. I tried the banana bread yesterday but made it pumpkin - it was very sweet and tasted like cookie bars.
The long runs coming up. Ugh. I am not feeling it at all. I feel like 12 miles is all I want to do this weekend. And this week and next week are the heavy mileage weeks. Why am I not feeling it?? The GU should be a nice motivational boost but I'm wondering why I even signed up for the marathon? I wish my motivation didn't SUCK right now! Speaking of GU I "sipped" some of the vanilla gingerbread. Yum yum.. and yum. Definitely check that out. I have to get a hold of some chocolate mint ... Since I am swimming regularly - I think I might try to get into the triathlons and make that my 2010 goal. Maybe I need a break from running.
Check this out...
New blog that I read : Billie - she's training for Philly too! and has a little guy who is about a year older than Nick. She posts great recipes (mmm pumpkin pasta) and talks about running and healthy eating too! Too bad we don't live closer, I think she'd be a great running buddy! :)
