Chuffing Chuffing Now

Lyrics from a song that has nothing to do with anything at the moment, but I thought of them.

Did my run today on the track at Jesuit again. I like their track, but I can't help but be bored with the same loop over and over. I only ran the first two intervals of the 6. I was going to run the last one, but then a big group of kids started running on the track so I ran myself right on out. I didn't want to think about how slow I am compared to a bunch of healthy rich kids. My next run is on Saturday and I'm going to go find a trail or something to run so that I have lots of pretty things to look at.

I have two things to add to my wishlist. First, I need the insoles for my shoes. My knees were killing me today which partly why I decided not to push my runs. I also want a foam cylinder. They had them at 24 hour fitness. What you do with them is you position yourself so that your calf or thigh is carrying your weight on it and you roll your leg across it. What it does is work out knots in your major muscle groups. It hurts like hell, but you feel so nice and loose afterward.

I'm officially addicted to heirloom naval oranges. They have to be heirloom. We only had about $15 left before we get paid again so I bought the essentials. It's amazing to me how much my essentials have changed. I left Fred Meyer with oranges, avocados, tomatoes, mushrooms, yogurt, parsley and cilantro. I was excited to have oranges because I ran out! This morning I had one and it just didn't do it for me. It was good, but it was missing that extra bit of sweetness. I got paid by one of my students today (huzzah!) so on my way home I stopped at new seasons and got some heirloom oranges. They were on sale so I was way stoked! I want to buy a whole bunch so I never run out! I ate my dinner (grilled veggies and a baked potato) and started to eat the chocolate cookie I got myself, but it wasn't satisfying so I ate another orange haha. Every morning when I get up I think about whether I want to have my orange in the morning or in the evening. Heirloom naval oranges. You have to try these things! Seriously amazing!

My weight is still fluctuating between 180 and 185. My clothes feel tight and uncomfortable most of the time. But I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. I was thinking about what weight watchers would have me be eating and this is basically it. Vegetables, whole grains, dairy, lean.
