Today I got up and decided to have an egg sandwich for breakfast. I cooked two eggs with dill and then topped them with a slice of muenster cheese on a sandwich thin. I also had a banana with some Justin's Maple Almond Butter. This was my first time trying this and OMG, I know understand what all the hype about Justin's butters is about! So YUMMY!
I headed out to the greenway to meet Emily, Michelle, and Diana for a run. Emily did about 12 miles because she's training for a marathon, half of which was with Michelle. Diana and I just met them for the last couple miles. Diana is just getting into her running grove, but I applaud her effort in getting out there and doing it! I didn't really feel any pressure to run long distance today since I'm still coming back from my injury and just ran about 4 miles yesterday, so any distance was fine me with me today.
Post run sweatiness...
After our run, Diana and I decided to grab some lunch at Panera.
I am sometimes a creature of habit at certain restaurants and Panera is one place where I LOVE to get the greek salad, because it's so friggin good, so I rarely branch out.
Got this with the whole grain baggette on the side and some water.
Do you order the same thing at certain restaurants or mix it up?
I then headed home, showered, finished Eat Love Pray and decided to do something I've never done before in my 32 years on earth. I WENT TO THE MOVIES BY MYSELF!
I know, I know, I'm weird. I just like going to the movies as a social activity and never really felt a strong urge to go alone. But if there was any movie to see alone, I felt like this was it. The story is largely about one woman's journey alone to find herself.
Have you ever been to a movie by yourself?
I liked both the book and movie. The movie definitely was a little different from the book, but I felt that the overall message translated. Both left me a very introspective mood for the rest of today. Between yesterday's fight/talk with my husband, conversation with Diana at lunch, and the overall theme of the book and movie, it really had me thinking a lot about life and what I want in life.
I don't know that I've completely answered that question. I think I'm still kind of a work in progress.
I took Clyde for a long walk, still thinking a lot, then went home and made myself dinner.
I had yellow rice with black beans, garlic, onion, tomato, mushrooms, salsa, cilantro, olives, avocado and a bit of plain non-fat yogurt.
I got kind of artsy with the presentation... :)
I may not have my life all figured out yet, but I'm pretty happy in general.
