tomorrow is a new day.
you shall begin it well and serenely and
with too high a spirit to be
cumbered with your old nonsense.

yesterday was a beautiful september day. it was a rest day from running but a full throttle day for eating. the picture was my breakfast, a good start.
for lunch i had smashburger, add haystack onions on top. but there was lettuce and tomato somewhere in there too. i ate my burger of smash like i just got out of prison.
we had to go for back to school night and of course had four minutes to eat dinner, so i inhaled four dante's (best deli in our area) raviolis and went on my merry way. but it was only four pasta pockets o' cheese.
of course, after this mindless food consumption, i came home and was hungry.
screw the happy, healthy choices. i made a quick ham and american sandwich. but.....i did use the 100 calorie whole wheat sandwich round (lathered in mayo...mmmmmmmmmmmm). and what better to wash it down than with some red wine. balanced.
then, for good measure i had three chips ahoy and a glass of milk. at that point, i figured why not. it was damn good. and it was only three.
so 85,000 un-organic, gnarly calories for the day, but i found this binging almost ridiculously humorous. therefore i write of it. so when you fall off the good eating wagon and get run over, you too can get up and start a new day with a high spirit.
and maybe even have the opportunity to begin it well and run eight miles with some friends on a terrific trail on a beautiful new september day.
here is some info about those little blueberries......
