Thoughts on Thursday

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve participated in a Thursday Thoughts post with Running with Spoons. I keep half typing a post up but it hasn’t come together like I would like.  Maybe I should just add them all together and I would have a coherent blog post?  Maybe…This is a collection of some of the most random things I’ve talked about in a while.  I guess that is what these types of posts are for anyways, to really gather your thoughts.

It’s two weeks until T gets back.  I am getting pretty excited but also nervous.  I’ve been living in my LOLZ LOLZ LOLZ fraternity of a house…I should probably start cleaning now.  I’m only kidding, I’ve managed to keep the house clean.  The last two months have gone by relatively fast but I have a feeling the next two weeks will go by really slow.  Or another case would be the next two weeks would be go too fast and then my house would not be as clean as I would like.  Only time will tell how I waste my time and panic the day before Tim gets home.  (I hope you aren’t reading this post Tim, I swear our house is clean and the only causality is a remote…)

On a completely different note, I was sent protein to try.  I’ve been looking for a protein powder that works for me.  I don’t do a lot of product reviews do when a company reaches out to me I debate for a while.  I tried mayoprotein the last few months and really like them.  I tried the vanilla toffee fudge and just blended it with milk and ice in my magic bullet.  I had it a lot as a snack midday when I was home.  It’s been good and I have no complaints!  Plus it has a significant amount of calcium which is something I’ve been trying to get more of.  It’s been really good and I highly recommend it.  When I get through this bag I will be making a purchase for myself, so thank you my protein and for reaching out to me.

I added a bit of coffee int o this one.  I have no regrets.

Is it just me or has this week gone by super slow?  That’s how I’ve felt anyways but I’ll leave it at that I guess.  The struggle all week has been real.

After doing a WIAW and having what I ate all out there, I began to feel self conscious.  Not that it really mattered because it has been working fine day to day but I did notice there was some room for improvement.  I’ve began researching some articles of interesting and fun foods (fun foods?) to bring with me.  I think I’m looking more into it then anyone else reading did though (but aren’t we all our own worst critics?).  Who really cares what I ate and how I ate it?

Update on my foot, is that I think it needs more rest time.  While my mile run felt okay, it didn’t feel great.  I think I need at least 1 more (if not 2) weeks to keep recovering.  So back to cross training I go.

I haven’t gotten any mail in the last few days.  Now I really feel lame and boring.  I like checking my mail and collecting things…unless it’s bills, I would rather not.

Question for you: Tell me something random today…whether it’show your week is going, what you are up too or something you just want to ramble away about.  The more random, the better.

  1. I was just thinking how this week is going by super slow! I haven’t found a protein powder I like yet that doesn’t have a lot of crap in it. But I also don’t have the money to buy a bunch so I’m slowly testing them out.
    Something random: polar bears fur isn’t really white, it’s translucent. The reflection of the Sun makes it look white.

  2. 😆 I remember being so jealous of my parents when I was younger because they were constantly getting mail, never realizing that it was the kind of mail you don’t want to get. And my mailbox has been empty for a little while after completely slamming me with bills at the same time a few weeks ago. Ugh. Looks like it’s time to start ordering some things online :mrgreen:

  3. Ermmmm…I’m running the Berlin marathon on Sunday…on limited training. Go me haha.
    I’m just not a fan of protein powders. They taste a bit chemically to me and to be honest, I’d prefer to just eat something. But that’s just me!

  4. I’m at the stage where I still enjoy getting mail! I don’t get bills, maybe that’s why. 🙂

    But it sounds like you should try some snail mail and pen pals and do care package exchanges with people, so that way you’ll look forward to it!

    • Random reply by me … I’ve totally wanted to start doing snail mail and sending ACTUAL letters to my friends! I remember the fun of picking out nice stationary and sitting down with pen and paper. That was fun and felt more meaningful than email.

  5. I still love mail! I subscribe to way too many magazines because I want to get something other than bills in the mail. I do remember when email first started (now I feel old) and how exciting it was to get that notification!

  6. I love receiving mail and sending it. In fact I just love checking my mail. It’s like the highlight of my day because I get out of my office to do it. Work from home problems.

    I love doing protein coffee smoothies. I’ve been drinking them after my morning workouts. I got an organic protein in chocolate at Costco, big container for $30, and I mix it with cold coffee and blend. I also put in a couple frozen bananas (was using ice until a local friend recommended nanners). It tastes like a frappucino.

    Still wishing your foot a speedy recovery, take all the time you need. Better to take an extra week than risk hurting it again and being out longer.

  7. I just can’t get into protein still! All the healthy ones taste bad that I’ve had! They help fill me up but since I still build muscle, I just assume that my protein is okay.
