Happy Tuesday! Today is gorgeous outside! 2 days before Thanksgiving and it’s 50 degrees out there by 10am? LOVE IT!
I went for a run this morning and wayyyy over-dressed. By the end of mile one, I was sweating and HOT HOT HOT. Gloves off, tied jacket around my waist… kept my winter hat on though, no one wanted to see my hat hair. 🙂
This Thursday is Thanksgiving. I will not be eating “paleo” anything. Unless there’s a veggie tray at the in laws house, maybe that will count as paleo. But, there will probably be dip, and I’ll probably eat it. Along with Mother-In-Laws DELICIOUS homemade stuffing and sweet potato casserole. And pie. And gravy. Turkey would be/could be paleo… but I’ll be eating the sides on a 10-1 ratio to the turkey. And, I’m excited.
In an effort to counteract the processed food/carbohydrate overload, Jon and I signed up for the Berbee Derbee 5K run on the morning of Turkey Day. Genius! Except… that I forgot that we signed up for it until yesterday. And I haven’t run since summer time. Oopsies. So, I snuck that run in this morning, and I think I should be good to go. Fingers crossed that the weather is like today!
You could say I have ADD today. I can’t commit to one topic, so for today, I’ll share these random tidbits:
I just made the most delicious guacomole, and I’m pretty sure I can’t wait much longer to start devouring it. Got some sweet potato chips and might attempt to make some baked plantain chips later.
I have renewed my addiction to Pinterest. What a relief… I was not already wasting enough time on WordPress and Facebook and PALEOMG. Whew!
It is 48 days until we go on vacation. I am slightly excited for Punta Cana in January. I may or may not have ordered three new swimsuits yesterday. And maybe a pair of sandals. Or two.
I may or may not be really irked that all three of those swimsuits are tankinis. Boo. But I just can’t seem to get that belly in check; and I don’t see the belly fat melting away during the next month of Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations, so I’m doing everyone a favor and keeping it covered. Stretch marks are dumb. Contrary to Pinterest motivational quotes, they are not “Tiger Stripes” or “badges of honor”. I love my kid. I do not love my stretch marks.
I have an interview today for an internship at the Department of Justice – wish me luck! Here we go!
