It’s a Celebration and Everyone’s Invited!

OK, not everyone, but it was still pretty fun. Last night we went to an appetizer and drinks party over at Lonestar Steakhouse for our buddy, Dan. Dan lives about 3 hours north, and was in town last night, so a group of us got together to say, “Hey Dan!” Dan was also one of Shane’s groomsmen.

Oh, memories. And to think that was only a week and one day and a year ago. Anyway, we were celebrating with Dan the man (in the back) at Lonestar. Once we got there, all of the appetizers looked either deep fried or smothered in cheese/sauce, so I decided to order my own meal. While waiting for it to come out, I might have sampled some of their waffle fries, which were out of this world good! (For something deep fried;)

I ordered the salmon dish – much better 😀

With a sweet potato and a side of mixed veggies:

The veggies were awesome!! I also had a glass and a half of red, red, wine.

After this meal, I felt 100% better.

Earlier, I had gone for a run that did not go so well. I had only set out to go for 3 miles, since I have the 10K race on Saturday. I figured I’d knock em out like that, then go home. However, not only were my legs leaden, but my whole body felt out of it. I felt like I was going to pass out the entire time, so I stopped at mile two. This is the first time that’s happened. It didn’t leave me a happy camper. I stopped because I figured I’d better not push myself so I can save all my energy for the race.

I’m not really sure what caused my fatigue during my run. Could it have been my eats?

Breakfast was the same b-fast cookie I had the other day:

But then a few hours later, I had half of an apple cider donut someone brought into the office:

And then a few hours after that, had half of the pumpkin spice kind…

Lunch was an ABJ wrap with a side salad (unpictured)

Then a few hours later, I tried the vita top muffin!

This flavor is peanut butter fudge chocolate

I enjoyed it indeed! And it’s only 100 calories. However, I think it would have gone better in a yogurt mixture. I should have saved it for later, because an hour or two later, I busted out my pre-workout snack, which was Fage and blueberries.

Perhaps I had too much sugar today? Maybe my pre-workout snack was eaten too soon before my workout (45 minutes before)? Did I eat enough? I thought I did… Hopefully I’m not getting sick.

Anyway, besides the crappy run, Thursday was a pretty good day! Did you all watch the Community with Joel McHale? I was so worried it would disappoint, but it was really funny for a pilot! I know I’ll be back watching next Thursday. We watched half of the Office when we got home too, but the hubski and I both just can’t seem to like it. I know, I know, we’re crazy and in the minority, but it is what it is.

When you have an off workout, what is usually to blame?
