quick and dirty thursday.

Posted on


You heard me.

I’m so excited for a few reasons.  I’ve only run this distance once, and it’s been a while.  Also, I’ve not been running as regularly as I should be, and I wasn’t sure I could do it.  But I can, and I did!  It was drizzly rain the first half of the run, and we had to fight some traffic.  I feel like I can firmly describe myself as both “badass” and “hardcore.”

Jen and I made the decision to tackle this run earlier this week, and I was actually looking forward to it.  Towards the end of the day, though, I was getting really tired from being up early and having a long day at work.  But I knew I didn’t want to let myself down.


After stopping off at ALDI to pick up a few things (including a fresh pineapple), I headed home to eat dinner, stretch, and relax.  Jonathan and I are heading out of town on Saturday, and I’m hoping to take tonight and Friday to pack this up, clean up in the kitchen, and catch up on a few things.

Once I arrived back at the apartment, I got to work on dinner.  This morning, I made a really tasty chicken parm pita-type thing with a Publix veggie chicken patty, red sauce, cheese and mushrooms.  Verdict:  really good!  The ingredient list wasn’t the shortest, but there wasn’t much on there that caused a lot of alarm.  I decided I would use the other half in my dinner.  I give you…Barbecue Fake Chicken Pizza!DSC06756DSC06759  Sweet, smoky, tangy, crunchy—everything I was looking for.

I think I’m going to mix some of the pineapple in with some black beans I batch-cooked on Sunday (thanks to Beth and her awesome recipe) and eat it over brown rice for lunch tomorrow.

Also, I have to show you something….strange.  I was watching my video post earlier this week, and I noticed two weird things.  First, this:

And then there’s the recommended video that comes up after mine is through.

Happy Thursday!!  Or, as a former co-worker used to say, Friday Junior!
