being bad...


Sometimes you just have to be bad...

Well, I wasn't bad all day last Sunday. Did get out for runs this last weekend. Saturday was difficult for me. We won't go into why, just was hard to run. Sunday was better. Got a glimpse of what is in store for us in the NW. Rain, rain and more rain. I have to admit, it was hard to get going but once the feet started moving running on the trail was quite enjoyable.

Got to love kicking up some mud and getting dirty. I mean you can love it because it is not cold yet. Thank goodness it wasn't cold. The inner city trail was quiet. Not near the amount of folks like on a normal Sunday. Quite pieceful actually. Just had to enjoy the day even though it rained the whole time.

I was bad after the run... Made fried food! Yes, fried food cooked in oil. But man did it taste good! Fried Catfish and onion rings! A friend turned me on to it a week back or so. But that was from a fast food place. Sunday I was going to cook it on my own. I didn't know how long to cook it but I just gave it a go. Boy was it yummy. After coating it with egg and a flour mixture I just slowly set it in the pot of oil and let it cook away while having a cold one. Life couldn't get any better I thought.

Sometimes you just have to do something bad to feel good.

I agree, sometimes you have to give in, in order to move on! Once in a while I will have the urge to eat my favorite "Penne Turkey Bolonase" or even McDonalds...but hey..everything in moderation is good.

What's the point of running as much as you do if you can't indulge in some "bad" food every now and and then, huh? : )

And I'd have to be unconscious to drop out after one loop at Hagg. Its definitely two loops for me! : )

An occasional indulgence is what keeps us going. Make mine chocolate!

YUM! Hopefully it's out of your system now and you can go back to vegetables and lean protein.

Blah. That sounds so. . . un-fun.

You aren't kidding about the rain lately - ugh! It just isn't letting up! As for that fried food - watch out! But, I agree, you can be bad once in awhile - I sure have been the past couple of days! Back to healthy eating next week! :)

Had fried catfish from a place on the north side recently. Sometimes you do have to give in.

I won't eat the catfish, but I love my french fries! That is the best part of running - the ability to indulge. Chocolate too. (Had both yesterday, post-marathon).

I love fried catfish, too! Being bad feels great - I do it all the time.

Sorry, dear. I know how much States mean to you. Are you pacing/crewing Jeff now?
