I was supposed to run 5 miles tonight and I just didn’t. There wasn’t any particular reason. I had to stay at work about 15 minutes late and then there was major traffic. When I got home, it was already almost 6:30 and I was afraid that it would get dark out. Plus, we needed to go to the grocery store, so I just skipped the run altogether. I feel a bit guilty about it; I am training for a race, after all, but what’s done is done, and I’ll have to do it tomorrow morning, I guess.
I had it all in my head that we would go to the grocery store and pick up some ingredients and follow a recipe. But of course, we were too hungry to figure out what to make and just ended up getting a lot of random stuff instead. This always happens to me; I have all good intentions of making an actual meal and then let myself get too hungry to make it and end up with something like this:

Even though I didn’t make dinner, I am happy to report that my snack monster is somewhat tamed. Here’s the evidence:
All of these items were purchased at least two weeks ago and normally wouldn’t last a day or two in my house. I managed to eat them in reasonable portions! Despite what it looks like, there are pretzels in that bag. I might have eaten three pieces of biscotti after taking that picture, but that’s the serving size. Seriously, I have some problems keeping snacky foods like these out of my mouth so the fact that they’ve lasted so long in my house is quite a feat.
My dad is coming to visit me tomorrow. I should probably go to sleep if I want to get that missed run in.
