Today’s been a weird day.
It started with a
ridiculously cold nice run in Springbank with Bill. The loop is about 7.5 km and we ran it in just under 45 minutes–but held a conversation the whole time. Except for being chilly, I felt awesome on the run and enjoyed having company! One thing I’ve learned about running–it’s a great way to chat and to catch up and to get out and about.
After the run, I threw together some leftovers with a sweet potato (with almond butter) and kale. I also had a banana!
I also had some fudge!
Before I headed to work today, I wandered aimlessly through the mall for a while. It’s not really my fault–I had to park eons away from lululemon–but I did enjoy the people watching. It’s almost like people weren’t showered with gifts yesterday the way they were out in hoards shopping today. Add to it that there was an impending blizzard and I won’t lie–I think there were some crazies out today! The shift was fun and went by fast, even though I stayed late to help close well into the snowy night! 🙂
On my break I ate some snacks (an apple and a bag of carrots) plus the meat off of some schmammmmwiches we were provided for sustenance. Omnomnom.
When I got out, I had a slow drive to my apartment. I tried to get a photo of the snow but I’ll just sum it up: it’s coming down! And I’m a baby when it comes to winter and especially winter driving, so I was glad to be home.
I was also ravenous so a pretty unexciting plate of kale and turkey filled me up.
…by filled me up I mean sort of filled me up. The banana dessert (by dessert I mean bowl with a banana, coconut, and cashew butter with chocolate chips) I tossed together afterwards did the rest.
Lucky, since I made a gal at work some chocolate bark and would probably be eating it all right now if I wasn’t satisfied.
I’m feeling absolutely tired and ready for bed. I forgot to add in that I decided today was as good as any to go cold turkey on coffee. That being said, I had two teas this morning because I’m not really into going into full withdrawal. I expected headaches without caffeine so I think easing into this is a good idea. Two teas instead of multiple large mugs and/or cups of coffee is certainly a win. Easing off of coffee (or at least getting to a point where I drink more water than I do coffee ;)!) is something I keep saying I “want” to do. It’s something I put on my list of “health” things that I’d like to see myself achieve in 2013. I like the idea of starting your resolutions now if they matter so it’s about time I get down to business on this one.
That being said, you’ve been warned: if I’m
weirder than normal a bit off the next time you see me, you’ll know why. If you see me with my face pressed against the window at Starbucks, please offer to drink a tea dirty water with me.
