So I assume everyone’s been watching the Olympics. It’s definitely been on the screen in the background at our house. The funny thing is that neither Colin, nor I know any athletes names. We aren’t crazy sport/athlete followers and it was only just over a year ago that I even got into fitness. I am really loving all the gymnastics and I wish I hadn’t fought my mom to get out of them when I was younger, as now I am wishing my body could do that stuff
…but it can’t
I am excited to watch running for the first time since becoming a runner. I’ve watched a few televised marathons but never paid any attention to running at the olympic level before so this will be new for me Too bad about Paula Radcliffe. Injuries suck as it is. I can’t imagine having to turn down running in the olympics due to one.
Anyway, I’ve been doing some running myself. I ran 6 miles yesterday morning. It was lovely. It really was. I just ran and enjoyed it. I played Coldplay the entire time, since I’m still in the “re-live the concert” window, and it really opened my eyes. I think I need more spirituality in my life. I haven’t been accessing that side of me as much as in the past. I’m excited to open it up again
I was so into my surroundings and connecting to everything that I didn’t even bother to take blog photos for you guys. (other then the one above) The only time my camera made an appearance was when this group of runners past me and waved in a cocky manner To bad I saw them when they started and I was already 7k up on them. Please. Give me strength. <—- seriously I need it
In other news, I ate mashed potatoes last night with my dinner and I felt soooooo sick afterwards. I am beginning to notice that what I thought was “feeling full” is really my body disagreeing with some foods. I am planning on making a doctors appointment to get everything checked out once and for all. I also treated myself to some garlic cheesy bread I figured, if I already felt sick why not make it worse
My energy levels haven’t really gone up. I’m still very tired all the time. Even though my daily snacks now include mostly veggies and fruits I’ve been experimenting and eating really well.
I never knew you could sauté Kale in a pan and have it taste so amazing! definitely doing that again!
Also just because Meg has wanted to know. I started growing an avocado – right now it still just looks like a split pit. However, if you look closely you can see it’s finally dropping a root down
I started growing it by wrapping it in moist paper towels and left it for a week. Once the shoot could be seen I poked it with 3 toothpicks and rested it on the top of a mason jar filled with water. 1/3 of the pit must be submerged in water. You can’t plant the seed until the roots are well established and the green tree begins to grow. I’ll keep you posted. You also have to keep it in indirect light, which proves easy when you’re growing inside
PS: Logan is the coolest xo
