Most Exciting Dinner Ever
Made ya look. So not exciting here tonight.
My stomach still hasn’t decided what it’s going to do- get better or get worse. I’m leaning towards better, but I wasn’t really feeling dinner. I’m not one to skip meals, so I went with the most basic thing I could come up with besides cereal. (Which is what I really wanted but I used up the last of the milk in chai tea that I finally decided to have as a post-run snack.)
This was my fav-o-fav meal when I was a kid. Especially in the stage where I rebelled against everything and all things tomato. (Which was basically my entire life until college, when I learned attempting to explain to Papa John’s at 2AM that no, I didn’t want pizza sauce on my pizza was a futile conversation. And then I also learned that pizza sauce didn’t in fact kill me.)
Anyways, I’m talking about spaghetti with butter and parmesan cheese. Except in my adult life I made angel hair pasta with Smart Balance, parmesan cheese, and little basil. Because basil makes it grown up, right?
And a slice of garlic toast. Because you need a side of carb with your carbs.
Halfway through I finally got up the courage to try a little spaghetti sauce since it was smelling good.
Hey, you’re supposed to start carbo loading the week before a race. I’m just following sage advice 😉
Even though I wasn’t feeling 100% I decided tonight was still Pilates night. I defintely took it easy though. The coming week definitely has the potential to be stressful- I wanted to grab a chance while I had it to relax and calm down. Pilates is the perfect mental break for me- it’s calming, yet not so calming that you have time to get lost in your thoughts. (That may be good for some people, but I don’t always want to be in my thoughts! They stress me out!)
So now that I’m feeling good and brain dumped, I guess it’s the perfect time to do some homework….:)
