Why hello there.
Thanks for stopping by Beyond Bananas.
I don’t know. The first line of my posts.. are the ones I dread the most. I feel like they are awkward!
Anyway – seems like many of your have had experiences with the thousand leggers that I found in the coat closet on Sunday morning. I had NEVER seen this bug until I met Justin. He had them in his basement at his parent’s house (and I think he brought them with him).
Justin did a little research on the little big bugger last night.. and found out that are kind of helpful because they eat all the other bugs in homes. (Um, I guess we must have a lot of bugs since this dude looked like a monster). Their average size is 1-2 inches (ours was much bigger) .. and can live anywhere from 4-7 years. Thats a damn long life for a bug if you ask me!
Anyway – today played out like any old day. It started off with some overnights:
So – I’ve been getting a lot of requests/questions/inquiries regarding my little bundles of love that I eat daily.
I’ve decided to do a video post so I can show you how I make them. The most helpful oat posts that I have seen.. have come VIA video. So I hope to be as helpful to you.
Take one was today. Take one failed. For many reasons. One of them being – I was in my sweaty running clothes. Another one of them being – I kept touching my nose an absurd amount of time. Still another reason is that I didn’t have anything set up – I just winged it. Winging it isn’t good.
I suppose I shall call it a dress rehearsal. I will try again tomorrow. Chances are – you will get me in my sweaty gym clothes. Don’t worry – you won’t be able to smell me through the computer. (And I promise my hands are washed!!)
Moving on – I decided to go for a run when I got home. It was partly sunny and in the 70s – a far cry from the chilly temperatures of the weekend.. and similarly chilly temps are forecasted for tomorrow.
I ran a total of 5 miles.
Let’s take a look at the break down.
Not to shabby since I felt like I wanted to die during mile one! 🙂 I was still able to finish strong in mile 5!!
I came home to a lovely little package of Chocolate Covered Pretzels from Kathleen over at Kat’s Health Corner. It was one of the things Justin so kindly donated to win after the bake sale had closed!
They look delicious and can’t wait to give them a try! Rather then having chocolate after my run (like I have done before).. I decided to chomp on an apple instead 🙂
Dinner tonight was simple – a Salmon Burger (without the broccoli slaw) and a side of veggies!
Something super cool that I found last night via Pink-Runner is a website called Jog.Fm. You simply enter the pace at which you want to run – and Jog.fm gives you a whole bunch of songs that have the right number of beats per minute to keep you at your goal pace.
I know that the music I listen to often determines how fast or slow I run. I pick it up with up-beat, quick tempo-ed songs.. and then slow down when the beat is slower. I found this to be awesome and I am going to try to make some new playlists that have songs to keep me at my goal pace.
Before I run – to start making lists of what I am bringing to SAN FRAN.. I’ve got a few questions for you..
First off – does your music dictate how fast or slow you run?
And secondly.. more seriously.. do you remember any special things that you teacher did for you at the end of the year (besides a little celebration)? I am trying to come up with something super memorable (but not time consuming.. or expensive) for my kiddies!
Have a fabulous night! xoxo
BTW – Wednesday is the deadline for those guest posts!
