a broken streak and crack for dinner

Yesterday was kind of a rough day.  I woke up late and didn’t have time for coffee or breakfast before my meeting.  I had things to take care of for work so coffee and food had to wait until noon.  I don’t do well without food and caffeine… so it was headaches all day off and on.  Not to mention, whenever I skip breakfast, my eating routine is completely messed up the entire day.  Does this happen to anyone else?  In the evenings it’s as if my body suddenly feels the urge to recoup the “missed” calories from earlier in the day and I couldn’t stop snacking.  Boo!

Oh, and it happened… I broke my RW run streak last night.  Part of me is disappointed but part of me knows it was the right thing to do.  My left calf has been TIGHT and bothering me, running or not.  Not to mention, my piriformis on both legs (butts?!) has been irking as well.  I’ve been lazy with my stretching for sure but after the irritations, I picked it back up.  Of course, I’ve taken out my tools of injury prevention: which I can’t put the pics up but I will later.

But then I also realized that running ONE mile was not worth increasing my injury risk.  Yes, that was all I was going to do last night – one mile.  Just to keep the streak alive.  So, I decided to go for a whole rest day.  And I need to talk myself into doing some cross training.  This marathon isn’t going to run itself and I need to make sure I am in one piece when Jan. 13th arrives!

Oh and sometimes I am lazy.  I was exhausted yesterday!

Now… “crack” for dinner.  Have you ever had SmartFood popcorn?  Oh my goodness, I LOVE this stuff.  I went to Trader Joe’s this past weekend and I bought their version.  Last night I may have eaten 1/3 of the bag – dang it!  The past few nights I portioned out some in a baggie and this helped.  Unfortunately, I just got lazy last night!

Okay, wordpress is being cranky and won’t let me post any pics so I am going to end this.  I will definitely try and make tomorrow’s post more interesting!
