Eating breakfast so late this morning totally messed up my lunch-making mojo. When I went to pack my lunch to take with me to NuVal, I wasn’t very hungry at all. Nothing seemed appetizing with a recently-filled belly. 😕 But, I knew that I would want something to eat while there, so I packed a light lunch. (Apparently, I already used this post title back in October 2008, which is why this one is called “Light Lunch 2.” I love reading old posts! 😉 )

To start, I loaded up on nutrients with carrots, celery, and red bell pepper crudites.


Then, I had a vanilla-flavored Siggi’s yogurt with Uncle Sam cereal mixed in.


And, finally, I threw in an orange and Vega bar.


Light, yet satisfying.


Marathon on My Mind

So, I’m debating running a marathon in the fall. After running a 1/2 marathon with bursitis last spring, I vowed never to run long distances again. But, now that my hip is better and my body is stronger, I’m considering crossing this life goal off of my list. Am I crazy? I sort of think I am, but this goal will always “haunt” me, ya know? At the same time, however, is it worth possibly injuring myself again? Has anyone overcome an injury to run a marathon? If you are a marathoner, do you think the time, training, and pain (???) is worth it?

P.S. See what I bought at the grocery store this week over on Trading Up Downtown!
