I woke up this morning feeling crappy from all the indulgences last night (burgers, fries, onions rings, fro-yo, hello!). I wasn’t hungry but knew I should eat before the gym (plus I try to eat within an hour of waking). So I made some eggs with salsa and laughing cow cheese.
Salsa is the easiest way to get veggies in your egg scrambles. I pour a serving right into the pan and cook it all up together. When it’s almost done I fold in the cheese.
Since the half marathon is tomorrow I didn’t run and decided to hit the gym for a strength session. I HATE not running on Saturdays, it’s my favorite thing! I’m pretty sure God intended for me to run on the 6th day. So, the gym wasn’t very fun, but I knew I should do some kinda exercise.
On the way home I rewarded myself with a very ripe peach and made a lunch with leftovers. I call this “Leftovers salad”. Don’t try to steal that name either, I stayed up all night trying to name this dish…
And a yogurt granola bowl. There might be some yogurt in there, but it’s mostly granola.
Then, I finally got to work on my costume for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon for tomorrow! Nothing like waiting till the last minute to see if you’re budget costume idea is going to fail, right?
After making a huge mess on my kitchen table…
and getting glitter glue on my hands, feet and in my hair, my costume was finally done!
Only a handful of people guessed my costume correctly, did you guess…
ARIEL! (image source)
C’mon, having red hair is only good for 2 things:
1.) Not having a soul
2.) Dressing up like Ariel if you’re a girl
(or Shaun White if you’re a boy)
So, it was either this or Ursula…
Truthfully, I feel kinda dumb in it, but it’s too late to change it now. I just have a feeling one of my shells is going to fall off and I’m going to have a major wardrobe malfunction
I bought green tights to wear under the skirt, but they look weird. So I think this is going to be the final draft. I cannot run with my hair down, so I think I might do a side braid too.
Two years ago I was in Orlando to run the Disney World full marathon. You can read my recap here.
The start is at 5:45am tomorrow! Ridiculous. I might as well head over there now.
Question: Is there a certain person or character that you’ve always wanted to dress up as?
I have always wanted to be Little Mermaid since I was a kid and have been singing “Part of your world” all day. I know, I’m a dork but I’m still singing it.
