I finished my five-mile run at noon and had to go fill up the car. [Gas prices are on the rise again … there must be lots of More Important News because I haven't seen any stories on Nightly with Brian Williams about it.] And there's a little mom-and-pop type store near the gas station and I just decided to pop in. I've been looking for a black display-type shelf that looks like a ladder; my hairdresser got one there quite a while ago, so I keep checking back.
I didn't need all that crap food. I have chicken noodle soup, vegetarian vegetable soup, cottage cheese, pb&j, stuff to make omelets – in other words, a stocked larder full of healthy lunch options. I'd have done well just to drive to the gas station, fill 'er up and drive home. Instead of stopping to fill me up on the way.
I usually follow a no-eating-in-the-car rule. Broke that one, too.
Is there a good thing here? Well, I did run five miles before I caved in. And the leftovers – yes, believe it or not there are leftovers – are already in the trash, covered with coffee grounds, and the trash goes to the curb tomorrow.
And, hopefully, it's over.
