Finally, groceries!

Hooray my sister went grocery shopping yesterday, and for like the first time in two weeks we actually have food in the house.  I celebrated by whipping up my latest most favorite cooking creation.  The chicken teriyaki and noodle stir fry that I made a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately we didn’t have fettucine noodles, which really are the best ones to use, but whole wheat spaghetti was a fine substitute.  Along with the broccoli and corn, I also added snap peas this time.

better than take-out!

I was smarter this time and made a lot, so now there are leftovers for some point later in the week :).  Prior to dinner, and thanks to some motivation from my Twitter followers, I managed to drag my butt to the gym and get in a workout.  I really contemplated skipping it and making last night my rest day, but I can’t go tomorrow so I really had to.  In the end I’m glad I got there, even if my sister practically had to drag me in by my ponytail.  These are the stats from my run.

  • 3.9 miles
  • 35 minutes
  • 8:58 pace

Not too shabby for completely dreading the whole thing.  Unfortunately when I was sitting on the couch later, I noticed a good amount of swelling on the top of my left foot underneath my big toe and I have no idea what it could be.  For the last few months, ok last 8 months, I’ve been having some pain when I wear heels and walk barefoot but nothing really too bad and it doesn’t typically bother me when I run.  Now that I’ve had some swelling though, I’m a little concerned.  I’m going to pay a little closer attention to it for a while and see what happens.

Since The Bachelorette ended last week, :(, my sis and I were a little upset we wouldn’t have anything to watch, but then we remembered about Bachelor Pad.  That show may even be better than The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.  I’m not even the least bit embarrassed to admit that after one episode I’m addicted.  I also may have decided that Tenley is a fantastic name for a girl, as long as she is not bat shit crazy.

I think today is going to be a rough one, I was having some crazy dreams last night and didn’t really sleep well so I’m pretty exhausted.  Hopefully I make it through the day.  Happy Tuesday!
