Breaking news: this morning I was one of those people who forgot to eat. Trust me, this NEVER happens. But I got into work and started working on a project. And was drinking coffee. At 11 am, I was suddenly very hungry and realized I forgot to eat my almond/coconut Kind bar. First of all, this in itself is astonishing considering I love me my Kind bars. Second, I don’t forget to eat. This concept is quite odd to me. Third, it’s probably been 7 years since I last forgot to eat breakfast. I suddenly feel lost. WHO AM I?
Why didn’t I eat it straight-away after this realization? I was meeting my friend for lunch at 11:45 at Panera so there wasn’t really a point. Although I was nervous that later on I wouldn’t be able to feel full. This used to happen to me all the time when I didn’t eat in the morning. I wouldn’t eat until 1 pm or 2 pm and then proceeded to eat the rest of the day/evening. Whenever anyone asks me how I lost weight in the first place, my answer is always, “I started eating breakfast”. Really, this changed my eating habits on a permanent basis.
Anyway, back to how I originally started this post. Not quite sure why I’ve gone all radio silent this past week. I could blame it on feeling completely exhausted every night after getting home from work. I could also blame it on some writer’s block. Then there is the fact I was feeling lazy and falling into a napping habit. Or because I’ve been taking my meds in the middle of the day in an attempt to make my dosage 12 hours apart.
Thankfully, these reasons haven’t kept me from running. I’ve been sticking with my plan pretty well with only a missed run here and there. Remember – this is good for me! I did decide to skip the 1/2 this past Sunday. It snowed the night before (4′) and was a combo of frozen roadways and a freezing morning. Not to mention, I woke up late and with a headache. All of these made for running 2 and 1/2 hours seem incredibly less appealing. I don’t regret my choice although I do feel a bit wimpy. My treadmill and I are super good buddies at this point.
I also created some art! I had a bit of help but here is the finished product:
Thank you pinterest, for ever fueling my project endeavors.
Last oddball thing: for some reason I’ve started saying “oil” in a Southern accent. I looked for gif or video to help explain this but to no avail. I think the best way to describe it is, I say “uhl” – I’m not sure where the “o” or the “i” went. I’m from WA state.
