Thank you for all the nice comments on my last post about my one-year blog anniversary. I really wish I'd had something planned, or at least wrote out a better anniversary post--but it didn't even occur to me that it was my blog anniversary until 9 pm!
I had a 5-mile easy run on the schedule this morning. Jessica and I only do our long runs and our semi-long runs together, so I was on my own. I feel like I've gotten kind of spoiled by having company on my runs, because I kept procrastinating heading out the door. I kept thinking about how boring my run was going to be.
My mom came over before I headed out, so that I could show her how to respond to comments on SparkPeople. If you wrote her a comment and don't get a response, it's not personal ;) She's just not very tech-saavy!
After she left, it was about 9:00, so I left for my run. I ran a route that I don't normally run (it's on a fairly busy road with just a rocky, gravely shoulder). That was definitely a workout on my ankles. I had to watch my steps carefully while on the gravel when cars were passing. Then as soon as I hopped back onto the concrete, another car would come.
My legs felt pretty heavy, and I went slower than I normally do when I run alone. I'm sure I'm still fatigued from Monday's 16-mile run. But I finished out the 5 miles and I was still almost a half mile from home, so I just kept running home. And you better believe I'm going to count that extra half-mile toward my 4-mile run on Friday, so I only have to run 3.5 ;)
I've tried audio books (Why do I still want to call them "books on tape"? Geez, I'm old), but I never remember what I've heard. I like podcasts, but it has to be really interesting for me to pay attention. Do any of you have a favorite podcast?
I went grocery shopping today, and somehow marshmallow fluff made its way into my cart. I haven't been able to keep that in the house because I binge on it. It's been a long time since I had it, so I am going to try to eat it in moderation. I LOVE Fluffernutter sandwiches! A Fluffernutter is peanut butter and marshmallow fluff on bread. I like to make them with toasted waffles, too--it gets a little melty and tastes completely orgasmic that way! Which is why I didn't buy waffles ;) One thing at a time!
I made half a Fluffernutter for lunch, and I definitely have missed this sandwich! And for the first time in a long time, I haven't felt like bingeing after lunch. Whenever I eat things that I feel like I "should" eat, rather than what I really want, I just don't feel satisfied--which leads to a binge. So by eating the Fluffernutter, I was satisfied mentally and physically... and no binge. This isn't anything new to me, but I always tend to forget how important it is to listen to MY BODY rather than all the nutrition info that we hear thousands of times a day.
I hope that as long as I don't have graham crackers or waffles in the house along with my Fluff, I'll be okay ;)
