So, today has been off to a good start. I began with an AM swim practice: 3350 yards. Came into ano ffice full of bagels. While I love bagels, I tend to munch through them somewhat mindlessly. So I managed to have just 1/4 of a bagel with cream cheese and a plum for breakfast. I've got some fruit for lunch, but I'll probably need a bit more so I'll figure it out then. But in general, as part of my "whole foods" endeavor, I am cutting down on my snacking significantly. It helps when I eat fewer carbs and as I said yesterday, fewer fruits (because they're so easy to over-eat), but one step at a time. I'll need to leave room for a snack at 3pm to get ready for my bike ride after work! Very exciting.
Midwest: is my roommate, good guy, but cleaning habits can drive me nuts. Luckily he's away on business a lot. RunJess: is my running buddy who lives closeby. She's been a great addition to my life and keeps me doing more workouts than I ever would have done on my own. CrazyLady: is actually another running buddy- an older friend at work who *can* be very intense, but is generally just a unique individual who adds to my life, she's also a fast runner and luckily tolerates my slowness. Frisbee: though he could go by many names, this will be the tag for the boyfriend. He lives on the cape and he rocks my world. He runs, plays frisbee and works for an enviro non-prof. Teacher: is a friend who just moved to town. Very good college friend/roommate with whom I have weekly dinners. She's honest and tells it like it is, not sure I've ever had a better friend. Powdergirl: is another college friend with whom I spend a lot of time. She lives over near Powderhouse Blvd, hence the name. Another very good friend I'm lucky to have in the area. Pescatarian: is a friend of Frisbee, the boyfriend. Pesc and I became friends pretty easily and the fact that we can actually piss each other off through chat conversation makes me think I might mention him on here. Genuinely good guy though... Nice Guy: Another college friend, overall very good guy, possible running buddy and intermittently "involved" (loosely) with some of my other buds.
