i decided to go for a run in the rain. running in the rain is all about mindset. if you decide you are going to get soaked, you don't fight it. i must admit the last 10 minutes weren't so much fun, as the novelty was wearing off, and i was beginning to get cold. but the shower afterwards was like none other.

i know i have to be careful with the running. my nutritionist warned me that it might be becoming more of a compensatory behavior, as the 2-3x/week has become more like 3-5. i DO enjoy it, at least most of the time, but it's definitely a tricky balance.

i had 1/2 of an opened mueli bar pre-run, found among my stash of bars:

** 1 starch **

it is amazing how i often don't even remember what foods i have around/leftover. there was a time when i could never eat 1/2 of a granola bar and then forget about it.

ridiculously good leftovers for lunch, served with kashi 7-grain crackers:

** 3 starch, 2 protein, 2 veg, 2 other **

  1. I ran in the rain today too! I agree that it is completely about your mindset. Sometimes it is invigorating, other times it's miserable.

    That soup sounds so great! Happy Saturday!
