December Challenge

December 2, 2008 at 10:09 am 8 comments

My December running challenge has officially begun!  I woke up this morning and had a hard time getting out of bed, but I reminded myself of my goal and did my usual 3 mile loop in the park.  It felt really nice getting back into my morning run before work routine.  It makes me feel so much more alert and ready to get things done when I push myself to exercise before work. img_21201 img_21221

I packed up a breakfast to go because I knew my monthly metro card ran out today and wanted to give myself time to buy one and get to work on time in case there was a line.  No line, but subway delays… grrr!  Oh well, I still got in at 8:40 – not bad.  Once at my desk I was finally able to relax, read some emails and have my brekkie: toasted spelt english muffin with strawberry jam and vegan “butter” spread.  So yummy!!  I actually like that stuff waaay better than butter – surprisingly my brother got me into it and he is definitely not vegan/vegetarian. img_21231

I also had my very last Chobani.  😦  It was strawberry flavored and I was so sad when I took the last spoonful.  I’ve made a promise with myself though and I’m not going to go to the grocery store for anything other than veggies or fruit for the next 2 weeks.   I hope this blog keeps me accountable!!  Basically I have so much food in my freezer and cabinets that I have no need to buy anything else (other than some fruit or lettuce) until I make a decent dent into my stores.  My wallet will be very appreciative!!  😀

    Good luck plowing through the pantry eats. Sometimes throwing whatever into the pan seems to work for me! It turns out tasty and great!

    I love that your are continuing the POTM challenge! I am kinda doing that too, trying to beat my lousy 45 miles! I am sure it won’t be hard:)

    runjess It’s just a personal challenge to get my total miles for December above the 63.57 I did for the POTM challenge. Just some extra motivation to get moving in the mornings…

    Erica Yeah well I have so much meat, tofu, beans, pasta, grains and tempeh in the freezer and fridge that I really have no excuse for continuing to buy more and more stuff I don’t need really so I want to use some of it up!

    Bobbi 45 miles is still nothing to sneeze at! I’m so glad you started the challenge in the first place – I’m usually so inactive once it starts to get chilly out. 🙂
