Funny little things that made me happy today:
- A woman passed me, turned around and gave me a thumbs up and said "great job!". I don't know why this cheered me up so much, but it did. It kept me going. :)
- I use MapMyRun to track my runs, mostly so I can see my pitiful speed and record my mileage. There was a particularly hilly "course" on my route, and when I went to check it afterwards, I came in 10th place! Out of 11! I didn't come in last! I can't believe I'm counting "not coming in last place" as an accomplishment. But whatever.
My current favourite thing to eat for breakfast/lunch/always is a scrambled egg with homemade salsa and a sprinkle of queso fresco, all wrapped in a tortilla. It is so good and filling, and it tops out at about 350 calories. I hate to be that person, but I've been incredibly enamoured with traditional Mexican food since I read Born to Run. I also got another book about indigenous diets around the world associated with "cold spots" - places where there are unusually low occurrences of Western diseases - and I've been making a lot of recipes from it. It's called The Jungle Effect by Daphne Miller, MD.
