Brussels Sprouts

I had every intention of getting my run out of the way this morning, but I went to Walmart instead. Then I was going to go before lunch or before dinner. Neither happened. I kept putting it off and putting it off until it was almost too late (for me) to run outside. I ate dinner early and headed out about 45 minutes after that. I don't usually run at night and I definitely cut it a little close this time. Fortunately there were a ton of other runners and people out and about so even though it got dark while I was running, I felt safe since I was on heavily traveled streets. Here are my splits:

I was aiming for slow easy miles so I listened to a few chapters of my audiobook and ran at a pace that felt comfortable. I love that the temperature was in the 50s today because it is so much easier to breathe in the cooler air.

Other than going for an evening run, my day was mostly uneventful. While I was in Walmart I saw some brussels sprouts in butter sauce beside the single serve steamer vegetables I buy to eat as sides and snacks. I had never had brussels sprouts so I bought a box to try them.

I heated them up this afternoon when I got hungry before dinner and I'm not gonna lie. I won't be buying anymore of them. They didn't taste bad exactly, but they kind of made my stomach hurt. Plus there are other vegetables that I like better. If I'm going to spend calories, I would rather spend them on something I actually enjoy eating. Speaking of which, I also tried The Coily Bombshell's egg white and oatmeal protein pancake today.

I made the recipe into one giant pancake and spread PB2 on top of it after I took the picture. Unlike the brussels sprouts I actually enjoyed this and unlike the brussels sprouts I will be making this recipe again. In any case, I'm glad I branched out a little and tried some new things.
