Today is special for two reasons. One, it’s my father’s birthday. So happy birthday Dad who doesn’t read the blog! He is doing really well if anyone’s wondering. Two, it’s exactly 100 days until our wedding!! Three months, one week and two days. But who’s counting, right?!
My attempts to make myself what I am deem as “wedding dress ready” have not gone so well. Basically because I keep thinking that the wedding date is so far away that it won’t matter if I have that second snack after lunch or that second serving of ice cream after dinner. But in actuality, three months is not far away at all. Unfortunately, these three months come at a bad time for healthy eating! The onset of Spring makes me want to drink a margarita, not a protein shake!
I am kind of clueless to what I can change with my current diet and exercise habits. I could lift more weights, I know that, but what else? I already eat pretty well. I sometimes wish that I ate a bunch of fast food and soda and candy and then I could just cut it out and that would be a huge shock to my system. But since I already eat pretty healthy, there’s not a lot to change. I do know that I snack after dinner a lot. It’s a very hard habit to break. I need someone to help me make a 3-month diet and exercise plan. Any takers? I’m not good at making my meals balanced. Like I’ll eat all carbs and no fat for a meal and not even notice. Maybe that’s why I am always so snacky.
Tomorrow is supposed to be 70 degrees. Rah Rah Rah! (That was supposed to sound like a cheerleader, not Lady Gaga.) Of course, it’s still forecasted to be rainy and in the low 50s on Sunday, but we’ll just ignore that for now and hope for change. This weekend’s not going to be a relaxing one, that’s for sure. I have like 2000 things that I need to do.
• photography class field trip to Oakland Cemetary.
• ING expo
• make race playlist
• run 13.1 miles
• register for Peachtree
• more laundry
• tidy up the downstairs
Okay, it’s only eight things. Really seven since I counted laundry twice.
For dinner tonight, I had Chicken Parm with roasted veggies. And by Chicken Parm, I mean a Morningstar Farms Chik’n patty with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.
I put about a teaspoon of olive oil and some seasoning on some Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms and roasted them for about 40 minutes at 375. Honestly, they didn’t taste that great. I think the Brussels were just not good and although the mushrooms tasted fine raw, they took on a weird taste when they were roasted. Oh well.
Did anyone watch The Real World last night? The newspaper that Andrew gets to work for was where I had my first job! Although I didn’t work in the building that they showed on tv. Oh also, here’s a question that I’ve been meaning to ask. I’ve been trying to buy more organic fruit. I’ve bought organic apples twice in the past month and both times they’ve been mealy and gross. Are apples not in season? It’s happened to me with apples that I’ve bought at Kroger and apples that I’ve bought at Whole Foods. It really doesn’t help my “we need to buy organic fruits and vegetables even though they cost twice as much” cause.
