Went to the local festival here in Columbia with friends and saw lots of people that I knew... of course... I am peripherally attached to many different alternative groups... pagans, homebirthers, belly dancers, etc.
I have worked on becoming more conscious of what goes into my mouth... now I want to become more conscious of where what goes into my comes from.
This translates into eating more locally and reducing the carbon footprint of my existence.
Before going out to the festival, I managed to get in my 33 minutes in on the treadmill, which included 5 straight minutes of jogging, which went great. I've been having problems with a muscle in my calf, either the soleus or the lateral gastrocnemius... it has been seizing up when I jog... and it hurts. I've rested it most of the last week and it is much happier now.
My husband is out of town until Thursday and I miss him. He is a work from home dad, I'm really very spoiled... it will be interesting, but it's only for 4 days. (Here's a big thumbs up to our military spouses keeping the home fires burning for 15 months at a time... I don't know how you do it!)
I'm kind of on free flow of brain tonight. Not feeling particularly profound. I have enough calories for ice cream, but none in the house. I think I might have a South Beach Cereal Bar, they are reasonable on calories and fat and great on protein and fiber. They make the sweet tooth easier to feed.
I have my salad made for work, as well as my snacks prepared so I can just grab and go in the morning since my darling private barista isn't here and I have to make my own coffee. Wah, I miss him.
I feel that the time I take to exercise and the time I take to make my salads are equally important things that I do for myself. So worth it.
Life is wunnerful!
