After giving myself a week of rest, I finally went for a run on Sunday. Part of it was because I was in a foul mood and needed to burn off some anger and part of it was I just really wanted to run.
My plan was to keep it slow and to run for forty minutes or three miles, whichever came first. I had a slight ankle twinge when I started but I think it's the shoes. I tend to wear my crappier shoes in the winter as to not beat up my newer running shoes. Bad idea, since my older shoes are beat up and not supportive at all. Live and learn. Looks like I just have an excuse to buy a new pair of shoes come springtime!
The run felt great and while my anger and bad mood weren't completely burned off, it certainly helped.
And on Sunday, I tried a new "pancake" recipe. I use the quotations because it's one of those no flour recipes. My friend Mary gave me the recipe and I was up with the Guys on Sunday so figured I would give it a shot. It's two eggs, one overripe banana. Smoosh the banana up until it is pretty much liquid, add in the eggs and beat together. Grease a pan with cooking spray and cook thirty seconds or so on each side.
I also had a scoop of Ben and Jerry's Fudge Brownie ice cream last night. I have had a hell of a weekend, the kind of thing where we need to open a bottle of wine and I will tell you all about it. And probably cry. One of my truly awesome friends showed up last night with Ben and Jerry's. And then left with it. Now that is a friend. Brings over ice cream, shares a scoop, and then takes it away.
It's Hubs week to cook. He went through his menu plan and asked me what I could and could not eat, what I wanted to eat, etc. He has already given up on the No Sugar Added thing. He's not buying Ben and Jerry's and bringing it into the house or anything, but his mom did send him home with cookies the other night and he managed to eat those just fine. I don't care, he's supportive of my choice and that's all that matters. And he hides the cookies.
