And then...it dawned on me. Running! How could I feel bad after a run? So I took advantage of the last little bit of light we had left in the day and got in 4 easy miles. No pressure, no time goals, and I told myself to stop and walk whenever I wanted. I won't lie and say I came back farting glitter, but I was feeling much, much better.
I realized this morning that I have been neglecting the food side of this blog a little big lately. Marathon training is taking over my brain! So here are some recent eats. First up is a veggie and shrimp stir fry served over Thai jasmine rice.
|Shrimp, edamame, broccoli, peppers, and corn|
|All stir fried with garlic and black pepper, served over rice with soy sauce.|
What's your go-to stress relief?
I'm still learning what works for me. I usually start with food/candy, feel worse, and then something clicks and I remember that exercise makes me feel better. It's hard to feel too bad after a run!
Do you buy candy in bulk, or single servings?
I used to only buy candy in single portions, but now that I live a long drive from shops, I tend to just buy them in bulk. And then...eat them in bulk. Generally the candy I choose is low calorie (25 calories in each of those lollypops) so I can eat a few before it really matters.
