Today actually turned into a pretty good day. I woke up feel dehydrated and shaky, I guess from the wine. I felt better after I ate though. We didn’t end up going to Lettuce Souprise You, but I did pick up a salad from Whole Foods. Yes, I’ve been to Whole Foods twice in the past two days. I’m an addict.
I also got this beauty. Actually, I guess it’s sort of ugly.
I sliced it up, put it in the oven for about 10 minutes on 350 and topped it with laughing cow, salt and pepper. I really like the combination of laughing cow and tomato.
My half marathon is 12 weeks away. I am officially supposed to start training tomorrow but I felt like going to the gym so I figured I’d just begin a day early. I did 3 miles. I’m, unfortunately, kind of an expert at building up my running endurance and then letting it slide back down again after the race is over. So starting a training plan is always as much of a mental challenge as it is physical. It’s hard to not have that little voice in my head telling me, “3 miles? You used to run 3 miles in your sleep.” I know it will get easier again. What’s done is done. I let myself get somewhat out of running shape. There is no need to beat myself up about it.
This is going to sound really cheesy, so prepare yourselves. Lately, when I run on the treadmill, I imagine my wedding and I start to get a bit choked up. The weird thing is that this only happens on the treadmill! If I think about it while I’m not running, I don’t get as emotional. Strange, huh? The other weird thing is that I haven’t actually seen the venue that we’re getting married in. So, in my treadmill fantasy, I picture this hybrid combination of all of the other wedding venues that I’ve been to.
Speaking of the wedding, we got something resolved that could have been a major bone of contention, so I’m happy about that and I think everyone involved is too. So, wedding ideas. Since we’re getting married in DC in April, we’re going to have a cherry blossom theme. My stepmother is handling the flowers and she wants me to show her what I like for my bouquet. Problem is, I don’t know anything about flowers! Any flowery people out there want to help me out? Something that goes with the cherry blossom theme, but it doesn’t have to actually be cherry blossoms.
