Hello! I should be running a half marathon right now, but am taking a “DNS” that stands for “Did Not Start” in runner talk
Ben felt sick all day yesterday and I didn’t want him to have to wake up super early, but I didn’t want to go solo to this one (I go to closer races or races with friends solo). Plus, my quads were tired all week after last weekend’s half – so last night as I was about to set my alarm I decided not to. I won this race in a contest on Runner’s Rambles blog so I thought it was going to be my lucky day. I feel like a loser for skipping out, but my quads (and Ben) feel like winners for being able to rest.
Moving on! Rewind to last night…
My best friend Cindy lives in Palm Springs. It’s not that far, but we seriously don’t see each other enough! (For the record, these geography lessons are for me because I want to get better at knowing where things are.)
I got a big ol’ tostada salad with their fried fish. This is one of those cases where the salad is the most unhealthy thing on the menu. But, I eat salads because I love them, not because they are low calorie (this one was far from low cal). It was delicious.
This morning we slept in big time – till after 8am! I feel better about skipping the race because I think I really needed sleep (and am back to my super early wake up call tomorrow).
Ben ate Mexican food leftovers and I had a massive protein pancake. I don’t have pumpkin so I had to change up my usual pumpkin pancake recipe. I basically subbed cottage cheese for pumpkin and it worked
The batta: 2 eggs, 1/4c cottage cheese, 1/3c oatmeal, dash: cinnamon, stevia, baking soda, baking powder. Dust with chia seeds while cooking.
Today’s a busy day for a Sunday! My grandma’s getting out of the hospital (‘member I said she’s sick) and Ben and I are helping transition her back home. And we’re having a birthday party for my dad!
See ya later
