Hello, my little sweet potato casseroles. How was your month? This might be the longest I’ve went without blogging since the inception of this project. I think I say that every time I almost skip an entire month, actually.
What’s going on with me, you ask? Well, I joined the The Fat Girls Guide to Running 10k challenge thing. While I disagree with a lot of her nutritional rules, I’m pretty excited for this. It starts Monday. Of course, I managed to cut the top of my foot pretty badly on Thanksgiving night, so putting on shoes is going to be a lot of fun. I’m pretty sure no one will ever love me because my right foot is basically a giant scar. Anyway, I’m supposed to be running a 10k in 10 weeks, but since there’s a good chance we’ll be under x feet of snow then, there are no 10ks near me until April. Mostly I’m just excited to get back to Zombies, Run! and Abel Township. I miss Sam.
Monday starts deer hunting season (rifle season or something? I don’t know.) in PA, and I’m having a hard time justifying being so vehemently anti-hunting, but still being an omnivore. This could be my 8-hour vegan-documentaries-on-Netflix binge the other night talking, though. Did you know they kill pigs with nail guns to the head? I can’t get that image out of my head. I just had what may be my very last Chipotle chicken burrito bowl. May be, because, like every other time I’ve had these thoughts, I made it like two days before desperately needing to eat some chicken nuggets. Also, I hate beans.
So, here’s to a healthier December, I guess. The thing I’m most looking forward to is making a playlist for running. My old one is basically one Eminem song on a 30-minute loop. I’m open to any and all suggestions, because I don’t know what I’m doing.
