Half a baked sweet potato topped with:
- Tropical Fruit Salsa
- Cannellini Beans
- Cheddar Cheese
1. I get HANGRY (hungry + angry) and it's not pretty.
2. I know my schedule, so I always have something ready or easy to prepare (like this) in the kitchen if I know I'll be home late that night, to prevent bodily harm to my husband or anyone else unfortunate enough to get in my way when I'm HANGRY.
Nope, this little gem was planned out in the grocery store. Eric put sweet potatoes in the cart and the fantasizing started and it was on. But, I realize that as delicious as that was to me, and as much as I am totally recreating it with the other half of the potato tonight, most people would find this disgusting. Which is why I get seriously scared of inviting people over for dinner. The thought of figuring out what is "normal" to make for others invokes terror.
I might as well keep going on and on about food, since my workouts this weekend consisted of sprints to the buffet and repeats of fork to mouth.
I did do a 15 mile run with Lily Friday morning, and it went pretty well. It was a long, SLOW distance but went by fast. After that I got denied trying to buy wine because I didn't have my ID and that officially started my Friday the 13th off on the right foot. I love when people think I am under 21.
That was it until Monday night because we were in NY celebrating my sister's college graduation! That's a whole separate post though.
My car is getting a tune up and I didn't remember to ask anyone to take me home from work on Monday so I brought my running shoes and ran home! It was an interesting end to the day. It was about 3 miles and I added a little extra to make it 3.5. I love living close to work.
Last night we went to bike club and learned how to change tires - I officially changed my back tire (the tough one) TWICE all by myself. We did a quick 5 mile ride after.
THANK YOU so much for all the comments on my last post regarding junk food at school picnics! Obviously I put it out there to the healthy living blog community because I wanted like minded people to tell me I was right and I love how supportive everyone was. Also I loved Roserunner's comeback "I would never want you to be my mom". Roserunner, can you come live in Baltimore and follow me around and write my lines for me? Everyone said it so much better than me - sadly blogger deleted some really good comments but I remember people (sorry, forgot who!) saying people act like eating healthy food is a punishment, and that people act like skipping the ice cream and cake one time is depriving children of some priceless childhood experience.
It might seem odd that me loving my kids enough to want them to grow up without tons of obesity related health problems is a bad thing, but I wish you could all see the attitude at my school. It makes me a monster. Of course, those who think that don't see it as me trying to take care of them. Oops, venting again. Anyway, thank you! I promise I'll stop and give you a fun graduation post next and I'll try to include tons of sarcasm, and there are plenty of pics!
Do you eat stuff that makes people around you say "So....what IS that?". Do you get HANGRY???? It's a serious condition.
