I am attempting to blog from my phone so I'm going to keep this one brief. I still haven't gone for a run, but today I did the next best thing: I went for a 6 mile walk across the Woodrow Wilson bridge into Virginia.
It was a hot, sweaty one, but it felt good to do something active again after being sick earlier this week. I'm not going to lie though. Every time a runner passed me i looked longingly at their fuel belt clad body and felt a little jealous. I can't wait to get back in the swing of things!
My eating hasn't been terrible since i've been here, but it hasn't been great either. I've mostly been eating turkey burgers on whole wheat buns, vegetable radiatore pasta with chicken from Trader Joe's, and larabars because i could eat my weight in them for always. So far, i have managed to say no to cupcakes, peach cobbler, pound cake, grilled smores, my grandmother's blonde brownies, and fried fish. However, my family is hanging out tonight and there may be a wine cooler in my future. I skipped the eat part so there will be no guilt for my decision to drink and be merry.
