Lately jogging has meant some combination of walking, skipping, galloping and running with my daughter, Ray. Today, she took her bike, so for the first time in a long time, I was able to jog the whole 3 miles. It was relatively easy, but when I approached a gentle hill just before our neighborhood, I settled into a walk.
Ray stopped on her bike and turned around to yell, "Hey! Dig deep! Get that ponytail swinging, before I swing it for you!"
I've got to stop recording The Biggest Loser for her.
Breakfast: Huge salad of lamb's lettuce, apple, dried cranberries, raisins, and chopped nuts, topped with olive oil/vinegar dressing
3 cups white tea
Snack: 1/2 piece onion bread topped with sauerkraut, chopped onions, and a bit of mustard
After eating this yesterday, my ears were itching like crazy. I'm sure it was something in the mustard, so I'm switching to a different one today.
Lunch: juice of carrots, Boston lettuce, celery, ginger, and lemon
Carrot juice isn't my fave, but I needed to use up some produce.
Snack: 5 slices dried mango
1/2 bottle kombucha (Not raw, but a treat I enjoy once in a while)
Preservative-free, sulfur-free, no-sugar-added dried mango is so delicious I feel like I'm cheating!
Dinner: More of the above juice, with apple thrown in
To my old mind (good friends with my ego), 3 miles isn't enough. I used to run 5 miles a day, no matter what, and 7 to 10 miles on weekends. I used to believe that if I didn't meet that standard, I might as well stay inside. 3 miles is enough . . . but I'm looking forward to doing more.
