"Today's weather: Highs in the upper nineties with a heat index of 105."
Aren't there obscenity laws?!?

Uggh. It's hot. Eighty-seven degrees at ten o'clock when I went out to run. I need to start exercising in the morning, but it's almost as hot and more humid then. (Whine). At least we got through May without hitting 100 degrees.
On the up side, whatever was wrong with my foot fixed itself. I'm fine now. Went "barefoot" again a few days ago for a short run, and it felt fine. I'll ease back into it a few times a week and see how it goes. I think the problem more likely came from walking in flat sandals for long distances, or else from riding my bike in aquasox. It hurt when I put my foot down to stop, and I suspect maybe I pulled something or pinched a nerve. Anyhow, it's better now. It only took 8 or 9 days to heal, so it must not have been anything too serious.

This week Target had Fiber One on sale for $2.50, coupons.com had a ton of 75 cent coupons, and you got a $5 gift card with purchase of 5 boxes. How am I supposed to turn down 75-cent-a-box cereal?!?
So... Anarie might do the cereal diet. Not primarily to lose weight, but because she's running out of room in her apartment!
Had a bit of a baking frenzy yesterday-- I made two types of cookies and a loaf of pumpkin bread, all of which turned out yummy. I took them to a party and sent the leftovers home with other people, so hopefully an extra 10K or two next week will undo the buttery, sugary damage. That got rid of all the butter that was in my freezer from the holidays, just in time. Supposedly it lasts six months frozen, and my six months were just about up!

Okay, I now have enough cereal to keep even ME going for 2 months or more. Target had a special-- Kashi products for $2.88 a box or less. I had a fistful of $1 off coupons for their Organic Promise cereal. On the box of the Organic Promise was a little peel-off coupon folder with 3 more dollar-off coupons, for frozen food, any Kashi cereal, and granola bars. Then, if you bought 5, you got a free $5 Target gift card. So... I came home with 7 boxes of cereal, 1 of TLC crackers, and 2 of granola bars, for a grand total of $8.50. That's like 11 cents a serving.
All together, now: "And they say it's too expensive to eat healthy?!"

My "barefoot" running experiment may have ended. The last several days I've been having some foot pain. It's only the right foot, and it's sort of on top of the foot, leading up into the ankle. What's weird is that I really can't tell if it feels like muscle pain, tendon pain, or what. There's no swelling or redness or anything. Tonight I put my running shoes on instead of the beach slippers, and it still hurt a little but not as much. Hard to tell whether it's because of the shoes, or whether I injured it some other way and it hurt less because it's starting to heal. I figure I'll give it a few days, and if it clears up, I'll try the barefoot thing again later.
