1. Today was the first day since I began running exclusively in Vibrams that I woke up and my calves felt normal. I ran 4 miles yesterday and my legs don’t hurt! Woot! I received the bigger size Merrells in the mail this week, so I hope to get some miles in with those soon too. And just for the record, wet Vibrams smell like a nasty combination of feet and wet dog. I’ll be wearing Merrells today while the Vibrams have a date with Efferdent.
2. I joined Sparkpeople to try and knock off the couple of pounds I gained in St. Martin. That has worked for me, but I’ve noticed that my protein consumption isn’t quite where it should be and that the protein I do eat is fairly high in fat. Anyone got some great suggestions for non-dairy lowfat protein. I already eat a ton of almonds and a fair amount of eggs and soy. I eat meat, but usually more as an ingredient than as a main piece of my meal.
3. Sometimes being the mom of boys is amusing. Everything is a weapon. There is no such thing as a whisper. Bathroom humor is always funny. Shoo was in the bath the other night repeatedly saying “Banos Amigos. Bathroom friends. Friends that live in the bathroom.” Each time he’d say it he’d laugh like it was the best.joke.ever. Gotta love boys. ;o)
