Last week I set my goal (to jog past all 4 strip clubs in my neighborhood without stopping) and established my route. This evening was my first practice jog. My longest jog so far was 40 minutes, without stopping, so I set my goal today to go at least 41 minutes. Baby steps. So how long did I make it tonight? 41 minutes! Mission: Accomplished.
I didn’t really think about my route before leaving, but I ended up jogging past Blue Zebra, 1 of the 4 strip clubs, anyway. As an added bonus, I also happened to jog past an Adult Video Store. I’m not sure of the name, but according to the 6 signs hanging on the outside of the building, DVDs there start at $6.95. Y’all should write that down for when it becomes time to start your Christmas shopping.
In addition to setting a new personal best for length of time, I also set a new personal best for distance: 3.1 miles, up from old personal best of 3.0 miles. Only .7 miles short of my strip club goal!
For dinner tonight I invented a little concoction that turned out to be pretty tasty. It started with a Trader Joe’s Vegetable Masala Burger:
It was the first time I had one, and it was pretty good – basically, a veggie burger with Indian flavors. I recommend. I grilled it in my RediSetGo (I’ve already made a note to myself to talk about this informercial product in a future blog) along with some bell pepper and carrots. Then I chopped the burger up, put it in a tortilla with the grilled veggies, as well as some of the Armenian cucumber I bought at the farmer’s market and a little nonfat Greek yogurt, and rolled it all up burrito-style. The end result:
The pile behind the burrito is the extra veggies that didn’t fit in the burrito, with another dollop of yogurt, and some carrot sticks on the side. I was impressed with myself for creating this little improv dinner. Definitely an improvement over the epic sardine sandwich failure.
Keep it up, David!
