One cooler bag is too small, the other is too big. I need a goldilocks bag. Regardless, food for today is packed in the big one. Ready for a great on-plan week. I may not have won the dietbet (stupid 1 pound shark week), but I feel ready to keep fighting and win the war.

Remember a few weeks ago when I said I wanted to try yoga? I found this online tonight! You can sort by difficulty level, type (I don’t even know what some of the types mean), length of workout… I think I’ll be trying this out!
Is this a bad idea? Maybe… But I’m sitting in a meeting and need a distraction.
My doctor’s office doesn’t have much interesting stuff out for the taking. Haha.
Good news: I’m strep free! Woohoo!
Another Monday, another day to step on the scale.
Last time: 242.5
The diet detox continues to go well. I feel great. I’m sleeping better (most nights) and I seem to have more energy during the day. I’ve only had one minor incidence of hangriness. I did have strep in the middle of it all, so that sucked, but I was still able to stay on plan even while feeling like crap. Well, mostly on plan. I did have some wonderfully delicious dried coconut while I was sick, because I had a fever and was feeling sorry for myself and decided I could have whatever I wanted due to said fever. It didn’t completely derail me either!
Today I will visit my chiropractor and see how I should begin to modify my diet, since my 3 weeks of detox is over. Honestly, it doesn’t even feel like it’s been 3 weeks - it sort of flew by.
Um, I might have a shoe problem. The top two are exactly the same, except being different colors. Also, not pictured: my glow-in-the-dark Asics and a pink pair of Avias that stay at work (for mid-day walks in the park).
A meeting I was supposed to have after work tonight was cancelled. Perfect opportunity to come home, change clothes, and run. So that’s what I did. I saw a lot more race shirts out on the trail tonight than I normally do. And got a lot more encouraging smiles and nods. It was nice.
I joined a facebook event today called “Run 26.2 for Boston”. My miles will be slow, and it will take me more than a few days or a week to rack them up, but my next 26.2 miles are for Boston… for everyone who worked so hard and was robbed of the change to finish yesterday, for those who due to injuries sustained won’t be able to run again, for those whose lives were tragically and violently taken. Tonight I finished my first 2.5 miles for them. 23.7 to go.
that I find it very, very easy to be in love with this crazy-mixed up world we live in. there is so much beauty everywhere I look that I’m often overwhelmed (in that really, really good way) with just simply being alive.
but there are also times I am reminded that not everyone finds the world as…
I couldn’t have said this any better…
I managed to turn one of my annual Woodstock 5k shirts into business casual attire. My longer distance shirts are all long sleeve, and it’s going to be 80 today, so I went with the 5k tank. Not much, and I doubt many (if anyone) will notice, but I felt like I needed to do some small gesture of support for Boston.
