I have been catching up on my sleep a little bit, I promise. I still feel tired right now, though. I guess because I should be asleep, right? NO. OF COURSE NOT. THAT WOULD BE THE MATURE THING TO DO.
You know what one of my pet peeves is? Not returning a shopping cart to its appropriate cart return corral. I mean, seriously, how long does it take? Maybe a minute at the most? Instead, people are assholes and leave them wandering like lost cows all around the parking lot, crashing into parked vehicles and just being a nuisance. I fully believe in karma , and I feel like I will invoke tons of bad karma by not returning my cart to the corral. And I park way out in the boonies, y’all. If I can return my cart to the corral after parking five miles away from the store entrance, then no one else should have an excuse. Way to be lazy, America.
I went for a run today and it was full of pain. I was trying to work out this week in my hotel gym because running in these small towns is a no-no unless you want to get raped. I didn’t have my iPod charged, which meant I lasted maybe two minutes on the treadmill before being all, “THIS IS ALL MY BODY CAN PHYSICALLY HANDLE FOR TODAY.” (God, I hate the treadmill). So yesterday, in a mad effort to do a workout before heading to a casino (more about that in a future post), I ran up and down three flights of stairs for five minutes. That may not sound like much, but I was really sore today, which meant calves were in pain during said run. I ran so slowly. It was pretty sad.
Oh man you guys, I don’t know if I’m overtraining or if this is just my body reacting to the wimpy Texas winter or what, but all I want to eat is CARBS. Two snacks I am in danger of overconsuming are Central Market Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips and HEB Whole Wheat Crackers. OMG. I don’t even care how uppity and hipster I sound by saying that I am eating cinnamon agave sweet potato tortilla chips, they are AMAZING and HEALTHY (or, they would be if I didn’t have like five servings already today). If you live in Texas, check them out without shame. You will not be disappointed.
In case you are wondering about my “Tom Sawyer” progress, I’m on page 2. Yep.
Goddamn it, is it Friday yet?
I need to sleep.
