I was exhausted when I got home from work and I literally laid down on the floor and fell asleep for about 15 minutes. I needed a serious pick-me-up (and we’re all out of cocaine) so I made this:
Nut-butter-almond milk-coffee-banana. Even all you green smoothie haters out there should appreciate this bad boy.
For some reason, my orthotics felt weirder yesterday than they did the day before. Heavy and really lop-sided. It kind of crushed the false confidence I had to go running. Luckily it started pouring so I didn’t have to feel guilty. I just did a short run/walk around my neighborhood (1.25ish) and resorted to Jillian.
Here’s a question for all you orthotic-wearing fools out there:
When you start wearing custom orthotics instead of the inserts that come with your shoes, does it still matter whether you wear a stability vs. a neutral shoe?
Is the insert what earns it the “stability” or “neutral” designation? Because if it doesn’t matter anymore, I am choosing shoes strictly on color now. I have a feeling it’s not that simple, but it’d be so nice to just walk into a store and pick out the shoes that look cool instead of the ones they tell me fit my feet. (For instance, my shoes are pink right now, a color I abhor.)
Anyway, your feedback (along with your complaints, curses, idle threats and ridicule) is always appreciated.
I forgot to bring my foot massage rolling stick thingy home from work yesterday so I had to use a spare can of Amy’s Butternut Squash soup.
I bought the soup on a whim a few months ago — it seemed kind of wretched on it’s own but I thought maybe I’d get creative and add something to it and turn it into a masterpiece. Alas, the soup muses are apparently steering clear of me because I haven’t come up with anything yet.
Okay, last thing…
In my Jerry Seinfeld voice: “So what’s the deal with grapefruit?”
It tastes good in my mouth, but then it leaves behind this gnarly aftertaste that makes me want to die.
Any creative ways to prepare grapefruit to avoid that sick aftertaste (aside from squeezing it into a glass of vodka)? I’m thinking of throwing one of those puppies on the grill just to see what happens…
