Well, as boring as I can be. I tend to think I'm quite fun.
This morning came far too early. I mean, it's the first time I set an alarm clock in 10 days - aside from those days I had to, you know, catch a plane and get off a boat.
But, instead of hitting snooze 18 times like I normally do, I hopped right out of bed (after three snoozes) and threw some stuff in a blender:
Looks beautiful, huh?
Well, it took forever to liquify. I think I need a new blender. (How boring do I sound?)
As you can see, I brought the Mango Tango (courtesy of the Abs Diet) to school with me for breakfast/mid-morning snack. It was pretty darn tasty.
After a productive morning and noontime (and, okay, about ten peanut M&Ms), I realized I had totally forgotten to eat lunch. So, I chowed down my salad - topped with black bean and corn salsa (that my family calls Bev's Salsa for our lovely friend who introduced us to it) and a sprinkling of cheese - during a meeting.
Because, you know, I'm classy like that.
After PROUD, I headed to the weight room to do the Crossft WOD with my work-brother. Today we had a 21 and then 15 and then 9 reps of kettlebell squats and kettlebell swings. While we were in the weight room, I didn't really think it was that great a workout. I mean, I was sweaty and everything, but my muscles didn't feel super fatigued.
That was until, however, we started walking the stairs to our classrooms.
Apparently 90 squats really do make a difference.
Then I made a mistake: I ran. HLM and I were supposed to get in 4.5 miles, but I told her I wanted to do more like two since my foot was an absolute wreck. Like, it hurts to put pressure on my foot, and it also hurts to release that pressure - if that makes any sense.
Since I'm totally qualified to diagnose myself, I'm pretty sure I have peroneal tendonitis (affecting the peroneus longus and/or peroneus brevis tendons).
I bet you didn't know you were in for an anatomy lesson, did you? (Well, unless you read the title of this post.)
So, I probably shouldn't have run at all. Oh well. Nothing a
As soon as I had Round One of icing, I started dinner. I was having two girlfriends over for our favorite meal: crab cakes with an avocado-mango salsa.

Seriously. How delicious does this look? Oh, and it's healthy: 400 calories for that mound of deliciousness. And really, the picture doesn't do it justice: you all need to make this meal. Stat.
Side note: I substituted Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise in the crab cake mixture. Also, I approximated all of the measurements because I was too lazy to take out the measuring spoons.
It was such a great night with Mags. We had sooooooooo much to catch up on and, as always, had a blast doing it.
And now that I've spent the better part of two hours writing, I had better hit the hay.
Check ya lata, yo.
