So it’s hard to eat healthy when you’re traveling, and it’s super hard to eat healthy when you’re working a comicon, so after a few days of working MoCCA and sitting behind a table and eating and traveling – plus a little PMS thrown in for good measure – I have been feeling a little heavy and gross and down on myself. Heading out for a run with Randi last night, I was still feeling kind of low, but by the time we were finished with our run, I was back up again. Seriously, passing my reflection twice in one night, twenty minutes and some jogging apart, involved a complete 180 on how I felt about myself. The emotional benefits of exercise almost outweigh the physical ones!
We’re repeating week 4 of c25k, due to my MoCCA trip and a bit of a disruption in Randi’s life as well. But that’s okay by me, I was sort of hoping to repeat week 4 anyway. I’ve peeked at week 5, and it looks scary, I don’t mind taking a few extra days to work up to it.
ALSO: Seriously, you guys, Wednesday night’s salad was the best salad, and probably deserves its own page. But if you’re impatient, here’s how it goes: sautee some chopped back bacon and some sliced sweet onions in a little bit of olive oil, and set aside. In the same pan, grill up some rings of pineapple! Chop up some avocado, too. Toss all of these with some spring greens, and drizzle some Thai sweet chili pepper on top of everything. Be careful that your taste buds don’t completely explode from the concentrated deliciousness!
