My Heroes Wear Bibs

I found this shirt in the depths of my luggage (I’m still living half way out of my suitcase since I’m staying at my Mom’s). It says, “My Heroes wear bibs”. I got it before the Surf City Marathon last year and haven’t really worn it yet.

I kinda get self conscious about wearing shirts that suggest I’m a runner since I don’t look like one, but I guess I didn’t care today and went for it icon wink My Heroes Wear Bibs IMG 0037 thumb My Heroes Wear Bibs

Sundays are a day of rest in more ways than one over here. I did 8 minute abs when I woke up and then made breakfast. I woke up hungry!

First, I had a small bowl of cereal while contemplating breakie and then decided to make a cottage cheese bowl. In the mix: pineapple cottage cheese, watermelon, cereals, almond butter, almond milk. IMG 0002 thumb1 My Heroes Wear Bibs

I am going through this pineapple cottage cheese like it’s going out of business. IMG 0001 thumb My Heroes Wear Bibs

The dogs waiting for a walk while I ate…If they could tap their paws they would. IMG 0013 thumb My Heroes Wear Bibs

And coffee, because I like it now.IMG 0006 thumb1 My Heroes Wear Bibs

After church my parents invited Ben and I to brunch. I ordered the Salmon Salad, but it turns out they are out of salmon. Oh well, this is a little greasy diner and I was taking a chance ordering fish there anyways.

I changed my order to a tuna sandwich and started with a salad. Restaurant ranch dressing is too good (and too bad).IMG 0017 thumb My Heroes Wear Bibs

I love tuna sandwiches. I try to only get them once in a while (mercury and mayo), but they’re so good!IMG 0020 thumb1 My Heroes Wear Bibs

Sometimes restaurants make their tuna too wet (read: dripping with mayo), but this was pretty decent. I was happy the diner didn’t have salmon after all.

After lunch I washed my car – something I didn’t do once in Maryland! There were some snacks during my errands and then I decided to just make an early dinner.

I used my new Cali bowl to make a massive salad! I will soon be starting my Open Sky shop (that’s what the countdown on the left is all about) and this was one of the first items I was sent for it.

In the salad – spinach, tomatoes, carrots, strawberries, mushrooms, almonds, cranberries and topped with TJ’s raspberry gorgonzola dressing.IMG 0026 thumb1 My Heroes Wear Bibs

Nutella! Finally this jar of Nutella is done. I actually forgot I had it after my brother’s birthday (when I used it on his b-day cake). But a few days ago I spotted it in the cupboard and have been sneaking bites ever since. I couldn’t stop IMG 0029 thumb My Heroes Wear Bibs

Today I had it on a bagel, but I’ve also been eating it straight up and on top of any type of carb available. Too good. IMG 0028 thumb1 My Heroes Wear Bibs

I don’t know if I’m tired or under-fueled, but I felt like I want to eat even though I wasn’t  hungry. I need to focus on this because my next appointment with the RD is Wednesday.

After some snacky times I made a SIAB to help fill me up! IMG 0038 thumb My Heroes Wear Bibs

My brother’s girlfriend is doing a science/beauty experiment of sorts on me tonight. Let’s hope it’s not a disaster!

    I feel the same way, especially when I am around runners that look more hardcore than I am. A lot of us let our appearance devalue our achievements which is silly but it’s an easy trap to fall into. You definitely ARE a runner and deserve to wear that shirt with pride!!

  2. says

    I am always so hesitate to order tuna at a restaurant for those same reasons (and I really hate mayo) but sometimes it’s the only veggie option and I have to roll with it.

    PS- LOVE that shirt! :)

  3. says

    I think you’re a runner! You definitely run way more than I do ;)
    I always feel self conscious in my No Meat Athlete tshirt! I have been slacking on my workouts lately and have still been wearing the shirt…

    Can’t wait to see how the beauty/science experiment turns out :)

  4. Maren says

    You are crazy for not thinking you look like a runnner!! mmm all your eats look soo yummy! Please show pictures of the beauty/science experience!! :)

  5. says

    Pshhh! You definitely look like a runner when you’re out there kicking but — running! But I know what you mean; even when I’m going along at a pace/distance that I know most other people couldn’t achieve, I still feel like I’m an impostor.

  6. says

    LOVE the shirt! I am also self conscious about doing anything that claims “I’m a runner!” because I am clearly 30 pounds overweight. I’m working on “owning it” – a few weeks ago I finally put a “13.1″ sticker on my car. Maybe I’m big, and maybe I’m slow, but I DO run! And just a reminder – you freaking ran a marathon!!!

    In other news, I know that I am a hypocrite about this, but I think your self body image is a bit distorted – you absolutely look like a runner!! But like I said, I understand how you feel and am so proud of you for wearing the shirt!

  7. says

    I feel the same way, I don’t want people to think I’m a runner! Especially since I’m better described as a jogger who walks a lot. lol

  8. Amanda says

    Oh Boo! You look like a runner! And if anybody is skeptical of your running talents just ask them how many miles THEY did this morning.

  9. says

    Monica! What do you mean, “you don’t look like a runner?” Don’t be silly. You ARE a runner, and you sure look like one to me.

    Also, I’m really curious as to what’s in that SIAB. It looks so creamy!
