Long Run, Late Night Hunger

Posted Feb 17 2013 10:54am
After an internal debate about when I should hit the trail, I completed 10 miles yesterday afternoon.  Sometimes getting out the door is harder than the actual run – that’s exactly how it felt yesterday.

cheesing, freezing, & feeling proud

It was my first time ever running in the snow and sleet.  Typically I’d pansy out and run on the treadmill but that sounded dreadful – little snow and sleet couldn’t stop me!

Ryan and I swung by TJ’s to pick up some groceries for the week and managed to walk out with only things that we needed – that never happens.  My paycheck is happy…

Modern Family is an absolutely hilarious show!  But does anyone else think that Haley [aka Sarah Hyland] looks like she’s about 16-years-old?  I’m always shocked when I remember she’s 22.

I fell asleep around 10PM and woke up 3 hours later.  I’ve been up since 1AM this morning watching House Hunters and snacking on apple slices + almond butter.  Charlie has been giving me the stink eye all morning – the man needs his beauty rest.

I don’t usually get hungry in the middle of the night but my tummy could not be tamed last night.  I’m almost positive that it’s because of the long run.  It makes me realize that I need to be more conscious of gauging what I eat on long run days – the last thing I want to do is run this body on an empty tank…

Believe it or not, the best bite of my Caramel Apple Spice Pancakes [simply this recipe plus a teaspoon of apple pie spice] this morning was smothered in TJ’s strawberry preserves – although Peanut Butter & Co. ‘s Cinnamon Raisin Swirl came in as a close second.

I got a bit distracted playing with Charlie so the pancakes came out well-done, but there’s nothing that spoonfuls of PB&J can’t fix

I’m totally embarrassed to admit that we’ve had a pile of clothes sitting on our windowsill waiting to be ironed for months.  Tonight I’ve got plans to bring out our mini ironing board and get it done today.

Ryan heard “ Thrift Shop ” for the first time yesterday and was inspired to take a trip to Unique [a local thrift shop] this morning.   He always finds some of the silliest t-shirts there and enjoy skimming through their home department…

Sunday means Teet lunch date and this weekend a friend is joining us – the more the merrier!

Thankfully it’s a 3-day weekend so I have a chance to catch up on sleep.  Although I can’t sleep the day away because I’ve got a challenge to conquer, inspired by a Twitter convo this morning with these girls – pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Question:  Are you good at gauging your hunger?  I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full…

Question:  If you had to eat the same meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, what would it be?
