I didn’t take pictures of everything I ate (you’re welcome) but here is what I felt was good enough.
How did I not find out about the PERFECT PINK HAND PROTECTORS and the new La Boulange at Starbucks? The goodies section looks so pretty and princess-y and I wanted to buy all of the things. Unfortunately, my $10 gift card only let me get a drink for me and Boyfriend and a treat for me. Boyfriend got a grande blended java chip frappucino (because he’s really watching his caloric intake) and I got a non fat green tea latte and a chocolate caramel muffin. It looked TOO GOOD not to get it. And that Starbucks trip ended up being my lunch…so not good but…also good?
And then dinner which is still in the process of being eaten. Chicken breast, roasted sweet potato, and roasted brussel sprouts. I bought a salad at Trader Joe’s the other night and it came with this really good carrot, garlic, ginger, miso (?) dressing so I put a little on dinner, too.
And for what everyone REALLY cares about, my run. Marathon training, day 2. This run felt absolutely glorious. I felt like I could’ve gone on for another 2 miles and I haven’t felt that in a while. My schedule was a little wonky today and I was talking myself out of running all day. Telling myself I could just push it off until tomorrow. Even on the bus ride home, I told myself I would finish my quiz and make dinner and call it a night. But, even though it was cold and dark when I got off the bus from school (still in kindergarten, apparently) I walked up my stairs and immediately put my shoes on. And my bright pink beenie from Forever 21 I got in San Francisco a couple weeks ago.
Post run, red, sweaty face. The best way to end a run.
Already an improvement! More consistent pace, even though I still negative split my second mile, but I’m okay with that. I’m just starting out again, after all.
