If you are upset about the fact that Louisville beat Michigan, or continually disappointed in Kim K’s pregnancy fashion, or if you’re just plain pissed off that we still have another 24 hours to go until the weekend, I have just the thing for you:
|SO MUCH BETTER THAN PUPPIES!|
Today I had a healthy day. Every now and then that happens. I did a pretty normal breakfast of English muffin and a green machine Naked juice, then about 12 I had a banana, and then about 1:30 I had the BEST SALAD EVER for lunch. Lately I’m a huge huge fan of the lean cuisine salad toppers. I’ve tried all but the Asian one, which I guarantee I will be trying next. Today I had the cranberry chicken which has definitely been my favorite so far. It had chicken, dried cranberries, broccoli, red onions, yellow carrots, whole grains, and crunchy sesame sticks with raspberry cabernet vinaigrette, for 280 CALORIES! I piled it on top of a massive plate of romaine lettuce and proceeded to eat lunch at my desk and make really inappropriate moaning noises, because it was just that good.

So delicious and satisfying that I didn't even have to dig into my m&m stash afterwards, and that’s a big deal.
|One of these things is not like the other...|
And in running news:
Last night I went to pick up my race packet for the VOVFW 5k this Saturday. Packet pickup was at Luke's Locker which provided me with an excuse to gawk at/drool over the massive and beautiful selection of running shoes. But I'll actually be replacing my shoes in a couple of weeks, so it wasn't a total waste of time. I figured now is a good time for a new pair, since I'm going to start training for the next half marathon the first week of May. It's hard to believe that I've put over 300 miles on mine since I got them for Christmas. Oh how time flies. I remember when they were just a little baby pair that were so bright and clean, and smelled like fresh rubbere. Now the white has turned to a really questionable gray and they smell like death. Yikes.
As far as the 5k goes, I really don't have any goals. I honestly sort of forgot that I'd signed up for this one, and am running it alone (Taylor will be my only lone spectator) so I haven't given this race a whole lot of thought. Since it's so short, I guess I'll just go out there and run it as fast as I can, but I'm really thinking this one will just be for fun.
And the best news:
TOMORROW IS FRIDAY! Which means only eight more work hours until I get to spend the weekend with my favorite person!
And now some wisdom from Kid President:
Anyone else racing this weekend?
How often do you change out your running shoes?
