Those words were not the first words out of my mouth this morning though. For some reason my tired brain hit snooze when my alarm went off. The alarm went off again at 5:10 am when I realized that I’m supposed to be running this morning. Cue naughty words here.
I slathered a slice of honey whole wheat bread with cookie butter for fuel.
I was hungry and knew graham crackers just wasn’t going to work today. I quickly got myself together, including my deodorant. How do I forget that so often for runs? Ha.
My run was similar to an obstacle course. It stormed last night with rain and all! Entire trees, limbs, and branches were everywhere. I managed to complete my 3 mile tempo run despite the loud voice in my head telling me to stop and walk.
Let’s just forget all of my first miles, ok?
I ran: 3 miles 27:22 9’06″
By the way, this humidity is ridiculously ridiculous.
Sometimes being a dietitian involves miscellaneous tasks such as picking a half eaten bag of flaming hot Cheetos that had been tossed onto the hospital campus outside of the ER. Can’t have junk food lying around my hospital!
I will show off my cherries that I snacked on though while charting.
Another dietitian likes to come by and snag a few almost every time I pull them out of my lunch bag.
Other miscellaneous tasks include watching a fit test video demonstrating how to wear the appropriate mask to avoid airborne diseases that was shot probably in 1992. I will get to be fitted for the mask again next week. The mask essentially makes you look like a duck!
As I drove home from work I decided that I would not allow myself to sit down on the couch. Once that happens, the night is a wash!
I grabbed my laptop, began to stream a replay of Le Tour, and a Tangerine!
This is how all dinners should be made! I was half-way into my beer before I really started on dinner. Beer and Le Tour are apparently bigger priorities. I finally began on Mexican stuffed bell peppers. They baked for nearly an hour which allowed for more tour time! It was a6 hourstage! I jumped ahead during ascents up the mountains and then watched during the intense descents.
Dinner nearly burned because I was hooked on Le Tour.
The peppers were stuffed with fire roasted tomatoes, quinoa, corn, black beans, cilantro, spices, Mexican cheese, and topped with mashed avocado. I love the corn and black bean combination!
Final kilometers were enjoyed on the couch with chocolate.
I had started on this chocolate about a month ago and finally finished it off. I’m not sure when the change came when I could let caramel filled chocolate hang around my kitchen for a month and not eat it within 24 hours.
