According to the countdown on the side of my page, I have 18 days until my marathon. Can I get a bloody hell!?
The plan is to run around 9 miles today in the early afternoon because 1. I don’t feel like it right now and 2. I have the time later so why not? After Sunday’s run, I’m trying not to beat myself up too much about not meeting the crazy long mileage goals of my training. Yes, the race is coming up, but worrying about it isn’t going to help. Therefore, I shall go day by day and pray I survive the race!
Being chill about these things makes life much better. Try it out sometime if you aren’t already a chill person. I just hope I can maintain my chillness as the race gets closer and closer. Oy vey…
I’m excited to stop obsessing over the race, and I’m sure you’re excited for me to stop talking about it nonstop. Soon, Friends. Soon.
In the mean time, these are a few of my favorite things. I haven’t spent a lot of time on Pinterest lately–what with moving across the country and all–so I don’t have much to share with you today.
But here they are!
Cute Picture Cone for Two. This picture makes me smile every time I look at it. So precious.
Meal Addition Heart-Shaped Carrots. You better believe I’m going to throw some carrot hearts in my food from now on.
Luxury A Working Laptop. I talked about it in last Friday’s post how my laptop has been on the fritz lately. Well yesterday, I took it to Best Buy to work their magic on it (it’s still under warranty). The screen light hasn’t been working, so I can’t read anything that’s on it. Of course when the guy started it at the store, it turned on just fine. Funny how that works out…And yes, the picture is of me writing this post. I’m on Matt’s MacBook again. I’m slowly getting the hang of this Mac thing.
Product Discovery Toll House Dark Chocolate Chips. I’ve never seen these before even though they’ve apparently been out for awhile. Like I’ve mentioned before, I love using Ghirardelli’s 60% Cacao Chocolate Chips for baking and other things, but I found these babies at the store yesterday and was really excited. They’re not quite as dark as the Ghirardelli chocolate option, but they’re also about half the price. So, I bought these and came home all ready and excited to make some chocolate chip cookies only to realize we were out of flour. It was so sad. You don’t even understand. Instead, I had chocolate chip pancakes for lunch (still struggling with getting back on the healthy train…) Uhoh. Now I’ve remembered there are chocolate chips in the house. The day just got dangerous.
What are your favorite type of chips to use in cookies? Semi-sweet? Milk? Dark? White? Butterscotch? Other?
Do electronics hate you as much as mine hate me?
