I have to be honest with you. I’m bored. I’m bored of taking pictures of my food and capturing my meals for each day…and clearly since I haven’t done it in probably over a week, I’m especially bored with giving an overall impression of my day. I. Am. Bored.
So bored that on Monday I didn’t take any pictures of my food, and on Tuesday and Wednesday I only took pictures of my dinner. Breakfast and lunch were varieties of the same thing I’ve been eating for the past twenty-eight days. I’ve mentioned it before but it bears repeating – the upside to preparing a lot of food on Saturday and Sunday is that we always have quick food to grab for lunches and dinners. The downside is that we have a lot of the same food to grab for lunches and dinners. Although I should mention that I’m not bored of eating Whole30 approved foods and I’m not craving anything really…I’m just bored of making the same foods and then taking pictures and trying to come up with a new way of telling my blog that I ate the same foods. I tend to be one of those “variety is the spice of life” people, but lately the spice of my life has been pretty boring. I did manage to come up with a new dinner on Wednesday night, but the rest of the meals? Pretty unmemorable.
I do, however, have one exciting thing to share to the few people who may actually be excited with me! I ended up braving the frigid weather on Wednesday and went for a run.
Are you shocked? Yeah, me too.
Wednesday was one of those days where I was feeling pretty down in the dumps, even after praying, and I really had the urge to get outside and get some fresh air. This has been a rare occurrence for me lately – I have been hit with a severe case of lazy ever since we moved back in October, as I’ve mentioned a billion times on this blog. So the fact that I actually wanted to run was huge.
I’d also like to mention that it was 23 degrees outside with a wind chill factor of 12 degrees. Twelve. Degrees. Yeah. That’s cold. Of course it didn’t occur to me to check the actual temperature until after I finished the run, but that’s probably a good thing because I think twelve degrees would have talked me out of going.
I ended up doing a simple out and back by my house and ran for a total of 2.25 miles. It took me 24:07 and my average pace was 10:44 per mile but to be honest I did not even care about time while I was running. I was just happy to have done it! And can I say that the hot shower I took afterwards was probably one of the greatest moments of my life?
Day 26, 27, and 28 eats
I’ve actually decided to forego the boring list of boring food for the past three days. You’re welcome. 🙂
