I am nursing a little bit of a frosting hangover this morning. Isn’t it amazing how eating too much sugar can make you feel horrible? I feel like I eat a lot of sugar every day, so I didn’t think a little frosting would kill me, but… ugh!
That being said, I was not feeling the gym at 5 this morning. I promptly turned my alarm off and went back to sleep for another hour and a half. It was glorious.
It had been almost a week since I had pancakes, so I knew something had to be done about that.
I made whole wheat pancakes with ricotta and maple syrup. I totally forgot the baking powder and they still turned out well.
Lunch was a lentil and ricotta wrap with a little taco seasoning thrown in. It totally masked the flavor of the lentils, which was a good thing- because they were totally expired 😦
Instead of pumpkin yogurt, I had a new to me flavor- black cherry Chobani! I can’t find the new flavors anywhere, but this was on sale and I wanted to give it a try. So creamy and sweet. I loved it!
I’m all out of apples- the horror!- so in order to meet my peanut butter quotient for the day, I made chocolate tofu mousse for a snack and topped it with peanut flour butter.
Out of the same glass- I’m classy like that.
Dinner was the last of my soup and more ice cream. I think I need some new food ideas. I forgot I had squash in the back of my car! (What, you don’t? It’s totally normal) I have a good dinner planned for tomorrow 🙂
I totally forgot to mention that I signed up for a 5k this Saturday! I signed up last night with hours to spare before the price increased. I saved 5 bucks- totally a big deal to me 🙂 I’m really excited about the race because it’s at my old high school, and it’s only a few miles away. I really want to walk or ride my bike there on the morning of the race. When else will I be able to do that?!
One thing I don’t love about races- the money. Holy god, races are expensive! I know some races benefit for charities, but as a poor student, I sometimes ask myself if I should really be spending money on races.
I could easily run 3 miles by myself, but there’s just something about a race that’s so exciting. Even though the last race I ran didn’t hand out T-shirts and I didn’t get a medal even though I placed in my age division, I think races are something I don’t mind paying for.
Because even though they’re draining my bank account, I always get something out of a race.
Whether it’s a T-shirt…
A personal distance record…
Getting first in your age group…
Or crossing the finishing line…
Yeah, I’d say races are worth it. And that is coming from the cheapest person you’ll ever meet 🙂
Race fees- worth it or not?
