run over by the wagon

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.
~ralph waldo emerson

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......
Blueberries improve memory and learning, and delay age-related cognitive decline as is seen with Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, not to mention, they're delicious.
Blueberries are a super food for your brain. They're high in vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants called flavonoids (also called polyphenols). In your brain, flavonoids interact with proteins and enzymes in ways that keep your brain younger. Scientists don't know exactly how all of those elements interact together, but blueberry flavonoids do seem to keep you smarter. People who eat a high-flavonoid diet stay sharper than folks with low-flavonoid diets.
      and of course, the banana...


    1. hey Nicky

      so yesterday was your cheat day !!! No big deal. Just
      run a few estra miles & get rid of the guilt. Also try to eat a lot of unsweetened yoghurt & rasberries to reduce your binging.


    2. Fabulous! The body craves what it needs! LOL :) I have some of those little blueberries in my fridge ~ I can't wait to toss them in my cereal this Saturday morning. Every other day this week, it was a granola bar in the car! I am especially loving that you had an 8-mile run! Woohoo! I knew it was in there just waiting to find its way out! You're golden. xo!
