I started my day with the usual banana, and I downed one liter of water before 9:30am! I had another liter gone before noon. I’m going for three liters before I leave work. How much water are you going to drink today?? Game on.
I had a huge salad for lunch with my usual accoutrements: cherry tomatoes, black olives, peas, hard-boiled egg pieces (mostly whites), sunflower seeds and some wild rice. I also had a scoop of cous cous salad and cottage cheese. Do you know how protein-packed cottage cheese is? It’s a goodie.
I’m going for a run tonight because I bailed on yesterday morning AND this morning. Come on, Amanda! You’re running a 5K in 10 days!!!! Tonight’s plan is to hit 3.4 miles, which is my farthest distance so far. If I run longer, so be it. Shorter is fine, too. I just want to make it past 3.1 miles. I am soooo slow. (Basically someone could probably walk very quickly next to me.) Since I know I can actually run the distance of a 5K, now I need to work on a speed that’s right for me … and doesn’t put me in last place. I’m competitive, OK?
Alright enough with this food, drink and workout nonsense ;) Onto a much more important topic.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EDWYN!
It’s one of my cat’s THIRD birthday today. I got Edwyn when he was only eight weeks old, so I still can’t believe he’s already three! He was my first pet that was all my own. Not my parents’. Not my roommate’s. Mine.
I’m a proud mama, so now it’s time to show him off!
Here’s baby Edwyn with Kari,
one of my besties and former roommate.
(Not the greatest pic of Kari, however …)
This was my cute little fam a couple of years ago.

Wow! It must be proud animal parent day here in PFG land. Priorfatgirl Jen has been boasting about the new addition to her home, too!
I’ll leave you with one more cat pic.
Until next time!
