Beautiful weather here today.
NOT. I have a pair of wellies that I was going to throw out once, but I didn’t, and I now remember why they were headed that way. When I left the gym, I didn’t bother to put on my socks, since they’d just get wet; I stuck my bare feet in the wellies, and oh my gosh, the pain! Wellies + bunion = agony. And a blister.
But I did lug a pair of running shoes with me today. (Indoor running shoes, so they could not alleviate my agony once the rain finally stopped.)
I’m not exactly sure of the time, but it took too long to run a mile… something around eleven minutes. Actually, that’s because I walked half of it, since I got a stitch in my side again, and if I tried to run through that I probably would have fallen off the treadmill. What causes stitches, and how do I get rid of them?!
I think it’s a bad idea for me to track my time when I’m running. I’m always going to want to beat my previous time, and at some point that becomes impossible. Also, while I like trying a new form of exercise — because I love discovering soreness in muscles I didn’t even know I had — I do not like to feel like I am horribly out of shape, and running makes me feel like I am. I arrogantly expect to be able to do everything super-well the very first time I try it, and if it doesn’t work out that way — as tends to happen — I get angry with myself.
Anyway. I’ve always said that I prefer to eat my greens, and therefore I am not likely to jump on the green monster bandwagon.
Well, I didn’t. This is about as far from healthy as you can get! It’s a yogurt smoothie… made with sugar-free lime Jello powder. I do not actually like lime Jello, and I do not know why I have another two boxes of it.
Looks like I really need to call my endocrinologist now… aside from the confusion about the medication dosage, I called a lab today to make an appointment for a bone scan. I was informed that they don’t do bone scans there; they do bone density scans. Well, whatever; I want the same thing I had done there last time! But I don’t know whether that’s what is on the prescription the doctor sent. Way to make a pain in the ass of myself!
Romaine, alfalfa sprouts, tempeh, roasted butternut squash. Finished the tempeh! And while I’m rejoicing over finishing things I didn’t want around, I also finally finished the hemp milk. Now I can try a couple of new cereals I had lying around — I didn’t want the taste of the hemp milk to ruin the taste of the cereal. Yes, I have issues. Why do you ask?
Excuse the sloppy job… I wasn’t “finished” yet. 😉
As is typical of Monday night (nutritionist night), it is way too late for me to be awake. I am quite disenchanted with the supermarket trip I took after my appointment: there were no bananas at the right stage of ripeness, the grapes were insanely expensive, and there is nary a rutabaga to be found. Boo. And I am not even going to venture into yapping about the appointment, because I want to go to sleep… which I would have done half an hour ago, had my sister not decided that it is urgent for me to proofread this book tonight. I refuse to be held responsible for anything I may have overlooked, since I am half asleep.
