Food and Feet (Two things that should never be mentioned together)


Today I finally jumped on the bandwagon to participate in the photodiarying of my food intake.  So here is my day in review.  Yum!

I started my first day on the early shift today, which means I have to be at work at 7.  Breakfast isn't served until 8:30, so I'm going to need to figure something out so that my days don't always start with a million calories from Quik Trip.
That's lemonade in my cup.

Chicken and chili crispitos (I ate this one and most of another), rosy pears, and green beans with onions and seasonings.

One of my co-workers made this delicious tray of joy.  I think I ate four.  I wanted to eat them all.

A mid-afternoon snack.  I am addicted to these things, along with several of my co-workers.  When our cooks go grocery shopping and ask us what we want, these always make the top of the list.

Beverages to get me through class. A skinny cinnamon dolce white mocha without the whip, and 25 ounces of agua.  And my beautiful Victoria's Secret lipgloss.

Dinner between classes.  Oikos blueberry Greek yogurt, and half of a Deli Fresh combination (a grown up Lunchable.)  I just ate the roast beef and swiss crackers.

The nice thing about the new schedule is that I can manage to squish a quick workout in between work and class.  I ran 3.05 in 30:47.  Not great, but not bad either.  After battling a major rib cramp (it can happen, look it up) and having to walk a few laps, I'll take that time.  It's just that now I know I can break 30 minutes for a 5k distance, I want to do it every time.

All of my running goodies.  I used my pink Superfeet insoles for actual running for the first time- SUCCESS!  Where have these been for the last two running years?  They made a huge difference to me. Lauren (my sweet sis-in-law) generously gave me her Ipod after receiving the Itouch for Christmas.  I rarely run with music, but really enjoyed it today.  And in another great feat, I actually made it to the gym with my Nike+ Sportband and the shoe chip today.  A negative aspect of the Nike website is that it won't let you manually input runs if you didn't use your Sportband.  So it looks like I've only run twice since January.  Boo.


  1. The average woman eats about 6 lbs of lip gloss in her lifetime, so it's good you included that in your caloric intake.

    Also, I want some joy.

  2. We should have a joy making night. Let's pair it with some sparkling wine or espresso.
