An Introspective Day

Today I got up and decided to have an egg sandwich for breakfast.  I cooked two eggs with dill and then topped them with a slice of muenster cheese on a sandwich thin.  I also had a banana with some Justin’s Maple Almond Butter.  This was my first time trying this and OMG, I know understand what all the hype about Justin’s butters is about!  So YUMMY!
I headed out to the greenway to meet Emily, Michelle, and Diana for a run.  Emily did about 12 miles because she’s training for a marathon, half of which was with Michelle.  Diana and I just met them for the last couple miles.  Diana is just getting into her running grove, but I applaud her effort in getting out there and doing it!  I didn’t really feel any pressure to run long distance today since I’m still coming back from my injury and just ran about 4 miles yesterday, so any distance was fine me with me today. 
Post run sweatiness…
After our run, Diana and I decided to grab some lunch at Panera. 
I am sometimes a creature of habit at certain restaurants and Panera is one place where I LOVE to get the greek salad, because it’s so friggin good, so I rarely branch out. 
Got this with the whole grain baggette on the side and some water.
Nom nom…
Do you order the same thing at certain restaurants or mix it up?
I then headed home, showered, finished Eat Love Pray and decided to do something I’ve never done before in my 32 years on earth.  I WENT TO THE MOVIES BY MYSELF!
I know, I know, I’m weird.  I just like going to the movies as a social activity and never really felt a strong urge to go alone.  But if there was any movie to see alone, I felt like this was it.  The story is largely about one woman’s journey alone to find herself.
Have you ever been to a movie by yourself?
I liked both the book and movie.  The movie definitely was a little different from the book, but I felt that the overall message translated.  Both left me a very introspective mood for the rest of today.  Between yesterday’s fight/talk with my husband, conversation with Diana at lunch, and the overall theme of the book and movie, it really had me thinking a lot about life and what I want in life.
I don’t know that I’ve completely answered that question.  I think I’m still kind of a work in progress.
I took Clyde for a long walk, still thinking a lot, then went home and made myself dinner.
I had yellow rice with black beans, garlic, onion, tomato, mushrooms, salsa, cilantro, olives, avocado and a bit of plain non-fat yogurt.
I got kind of artsy with the presentation…  🙂
I may not have my life all figured out yet, but I’m pretty happy in general.
