So if yesterday’s word of the day was “iffy,” today’s is “weird.”
I don’t know what’s going on peeps – has the sinus infection gone to my brain and is secretly screwing with the world? Today was plain and simply…weird. I felt weird, feel weird and work today, well…we acted like total weird-os (including a rendition of the Cha-Cha Slide in our office a.k.a. the classic wedding dance song).
Brekkie today was a new cereal I bought. Barbara (creator of our fave PB Puffins) has these Vanilla Almond Shredded Oat Squares and well, they tasted kinda weird. Not bad, just weird.

Shoutout to Sarah for coming up with a challenge to make us all step outside the box (or bowl, whichever you prefer). The biggest surprise? The savory oats – I was totes scared to try them, but they were delish!
Snackage included an Apple Cinnamon PURE Bar (my fave flav so far) while lunch included more wrappage…
A couple of you dudes asked what the heck kohlrabi is. Well, technically our friend kohlrabi is in the cabbage family and looks something like this…
When you trim off the tops and outside skin, the inside looks like somewhat like a radish – white, translucent and uber-crunchy. It’s the perfect (weird) snack food!
Mid-afternoon snack was the usual, plus a DC to try and get me out of this funk. Yeah, the DC didn’t work. I only felt nauseous after drinking it.
On the way homesky from worksky, I mapped out my weekly running sched. Since I will be back in Minnesota this weekend, I think I am going to change my long 18 mile run (eeeeek, 18 friggin’ miles!) to Friday so I can have all day on Saturday to go to the MN State Fair (2nd largest in the country) and chow down on my top 3 fair foods: cheese curds, corn on the cob and Sweet Martha’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Yeah, it’s definitely going to be a greasefest, in which I will love every minute.
So, back to the story, I needed to run 9 miles tonight but instead, I am going to run 4. That’s if I can get my butt out the door because this weirdness has me all up in a funk. I know running will help, but tell that to my body who might need to be shoved, kicked and thrown out the door for encouragement.
When I got home, I should have just gone right away and ran but instead, I started dinner. Shoutout to my girl April – the purple pepper is for you!
Ooh, before I forget, Michelle asked if there was a reason I bought expeller-pressed canola oil instead of just plain ol’ canola. Always a reason, and here it is: expeller-pressed means there are no chemicals used in extraction. This often results in a lower percentage of oil than using other methods requiring chemicals (which is why many companies DON’T do it).
Enough of my procrastinating and complaining right? Weird is no excuse to skip marathon training!
Help! How do YOU get out of a funk? Usually I work out, but you know how that is going right now…
