When we last spoke I had just run the LA Marathon (recap here). The remainder of the day included resting and eating and watching random TV because I was too tired to change the channel.
I hung out at my parents’ house and since I was wearing my cool new ProCompression socks figured Roxy might want some dog socks too. I bought these to help prevent her from slipping when she’s inside. But, they came a lot smaller than expected so I can’t leave them on her for too long. Oh well.
This is what happens when you go to a good hole in the wall kinda Mexican food place and order nacho fries. The container weighed 12 pounds. And now I am the not so proud owner of those pounds on my body.
Luckily I’m totally back on track now and hit the grocery store for healthy food. Plus, I’m doing some meal prep action so everything is easy and accessible. Planning is so important for healthy eating.
I also hit up a few stores to start getting ready for my next trip. I travel so much I am a master packer and only bring a carry on.
But I think my next excursion will require a checked bag. I can borrow one from someone, but I am looking around for some new luggage of my own in case I find a deal.
It is gorgeous today! God bless CA.
What I Wore to the LA Marathon:
For those that were asking about the gear I wore to the LA Marathon yesterday, here’s the run down…
ProCompression visor and socks
Pink racer back tank (similar // similar) ((My tank is old and not available online.))
Moving comfort shorts (similar // similar) ((Moving Comfort doesn’t make shorts anymore.))
This isn’t in response to your question but rather your comment on the moving comfort shorts. My fav capris ever were moving comfort and I was so disappointed to learn Last year they stopped making pants/shorts. Ugh! I hate having my favorite things discontinued!
Nacho Fries – that’s just genius. I don’t think the restaurants around here sell them … but I will be asking for them!
I would say get a Samsonite – they are good stuff and lasts.
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff says
Nacho fries sound so good! I had fajitas today. And chips with guac.
How did it go running in a skirt with sparkles for 26.2?
I have never tried Newton’s before. I’ve always been so curious about them but I’m too scared that I’ll get injured if I leave my beloved Asics Nimbus! I don’t think I have ever tried nacho fries, and this makes me sad.
Your marathon outfit is adorable, and I love those compression socks! Great recap! 🙂
toast the girl almighty
Rachael @ Catch Me if You Can says
nacho fries! i see a funny shirt in there somewhere lol. i travel a lot for work and only take a carry-on and a personal item. it takes practice but oh man so much faster than checking a bag. ive seen great deals on homegood (looks like thats where you are) but if you want a bag to last the long term get a hard shell samsonite. they are on the pricer side but no matter what those luggage guys do to them they hold up. although if you arent going to use it very often you could get away with a cheap one.
Becky @ Ok, So Here's the Plan says
I can’t believe I haven’t had nacho fries – they’re two of my favorite foods! Sounds delicious and terrible all at the same time! 😉
