Thanks so much for all the half marathon support guys! I am very excited and nervous but since I’m not starting training until September I am trying not to obsess about it until then
I was running too late to post this morning but I did manage to make breakfast for myself and the hubby. Just barely though, my dreams have been throwing me off! All this week I’ve been having very realistic dreams that then confuse me when I wake up. Today I dreamed 3 times in a a row (in such realistic detail that it was like watching freakin Food Network) that I was cooking eggs; I ended up oversleeping. And then when I got up I made eggs.
For 2 servings I used 4whites and 1 whole egg, 1t evoo, and ~2/3C chopped broccoli. I was proud of myself for using leftovers (broccoli from our AnTEAoxident pasta and egg whites from our homemade ice cream) but I went wrong somewhere because I barely made any. I ended up giving part of my (small) portion to Adam so he had enough to eat.
I got to the hospital for volunteering early so I got a frozen coffee to make up for the eggs.
This wasn’t the healthiest of choices (although it sort of was, which was disappointing for a hospital cafe) but I was majorly craving frozen coffee and it hit the spot.
Today was my first day on my actual placement for the next three weeks of volunteering – dialysis. I learned a few interesting things but the ward was really slow today so there wasn’t much of me to do. I hope I’m not having to stand around as much tomorrow.
For lunch I used my voucher to get a slice of white pizza with black olives.
Delish! The only way it could have tasted better is if the olives were green, which I’ve discovered is the best pizza topping ever.
When I got home I realized another positive to having volunteering being my only responsibility for the next few weeks: this gets to be my uniform once I get home at 2:30 -
Fun fact – I was wearing these pajama pants (which actually used to belong to Adam) on Christmas morning when Adam proposed to me!
On the agenda for this evening is a short run, a super low-key dinner, and a fun project. Adam has another “first week” event tonight so I’ll be on my own. See ya later alligators!
Have you ever volunteered? What did you do? I volunteered at a hospital in Brooklyn last year and in high school I did most of my 40required hours at the animal shelter.
