Dust Yourself Off and Try Again

Hey all!  Sunday already!? Wtf! 😉  Back to the old grind tomorrow…

Thank you all for your positive comments on my last post, I truly appreciate it!  You ladies rock!!  It is a tough schedule, but I’ll adjust…it’s life.

Today started out normally enough, got up early around 7 and headed out for a jog/walk around my neighborhood around 7:30 am.  So I’m jogging along, about ten minutes into my outing…and I fallMajorly fall. I’ll spare you all the pictures, but it was nasty 😦 And it hurt!!

I was jogging down a relatively steep hill, which I know can be challenging, but I had pretty much (or so I thought) mastered the art of this particular hill.  NOT.  I tripped over who knows what (nothing that I could see) in the street and fell flat on my front.  Not fun.  I (of course after looking around to see who witnessed this lovlieness…no one did) assessed the damage.  I scraped my left knee up pretty badly, both of my outer palms also (skin missing ugh) and my left elbow.  The elbow and knee both have road rash up and down the whole arm/calf and it stings something awful.  I obviously called it quits and hobbled home to clean myself up.  I now am sporting some awesome band-aids and anti-bacterial cream and dealing with the sting. 😦 suckage.  Although this deterred me from continuing running today, I will not be scared away!  I plan on the gym this week, and outside jogging again soon! 🙂

After the drama-rama of the morning, I got ready and made myself some breakfast on the deck while reading the Sunday paper!  I love the Sunday paper with all the fun circulars and ads!  Woo!

adams pb eng muffin breakfast

Stop and Shop Raisin English Muffin with 1.5 tbsp of Honey Roasted Peanut Butter (a new, locally made find!) with a Plain, Non-Fat Dannon yogurt and a sliced kiwi (mmm!) and strawberries!  A wonderful summer breakfast!

My mom and I did some shopping today at a local outdoor outlet mall, and I snagged a new tank and short sleeve shirt from the Gap 50% off!  Score!  I love sales!  Lunch was eaten at Quiznos…

quiznos chicken salad

One of my favorites to get there!  The Roasted Chicken Salad, which I get sans bacon and Honey Mustard dressing on the side (for dipping just my fork into).  It contains chopped lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheddar cheese and chopped chicken breast.  I added pickles, and it’s served with this awesome warm pita-type flatbread on top…mmm delcious, doughy, and my favorite part of the salad easily!  I also enjoyed some Diet Pepsi and 3 mini Tootsie Rolls during and after.

I did some grocery shopping yesterday and today as well and came away with some fresh produce, Kashi Blueberry Waffles, Amy’s Burrito, Chobs, Edy’s Frozen Yogurt Cookies & Cream (mm!), Vitamin Water 10s, Caramel Turtle Chex Mix ;), Annie’s Mac (on sale!), tuna, and my personal favorite…Tofu Shirataki noodles!! I found these at a local store and snatched them up!  Whole pack for only 40 cals!?  Can’t wait to try them!!

Dinner tonight was a bit odd…finished up some leftover salad in my fridge and had a nice bowl of oats/oat bran!  Haven’t had that in sooo long!  Just the warmer weather I guess!  My bowl was made the usual way, with some skim milk and water, and a smashed banana.  I added flax and cinn and a big glob of Mighty Maple (almost gone AHHH!) and the fresh-ground Honey Roasted PB.  Mmm mmm tasty.  I finished off the night with some Chex mix and 1/2 of a Carrot Cake muffin my Mom got at the store 😉 Tasty!

Now I’m relaxing in bed with a Bridezilla’s marathon!  Does anyone else love this show!?  These ladies are crazazy!!

Gotta get to bed soon…5:15 am wakeup call!

Nighty night! 🙂

    Your fall sounds SO painful! i’m always afraid of falling because it often feels like I have two left feet…

    I’ve never watched Bridezillas, but now that NO shows are on TV I have resolved myself to tivoing the real housewives of orange county/new york. It’s strangely addicting…

    Hey Michelle 🙂 I just found your blog using the random selector here at WP and I think you are a new fav!

    Sorry to hear about your fall….sounds like something I’d do. You shoud pick up some of those awesome, brightly colored bandaides so at least you have something fun to look at while all banged up. If anyone asks, just tell them you really messed up a purse snatcher or something.

    That breakfast you had sounds delish. I love my natural peanut butter by Jiff–I think it’s Jiff–and it doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge like others. I’ve found that most other natural peanut butters (no oils!) require the fridge and stirring and it’s not spreadable like the regular kind.
