Evening! Wow, the Jessica Simpson post sure provoked a reaction! I really enjoyed reading everyone’s opinions — and you all were so nice to each other (and Jessica).
Most of you agree that:
- The media is disgusting.
- Jessica is wearing horrible pants that does her no favors.
- Attacks like this warp other women’s (and men’s) perceptions about what’s healthy and sexy.
- The media accuses celebrities of either "battling an eating disorder" or being "fat." No one is good enough, and there’s too much focus on appearance, even if they are public figures.
- The NY Post cartoon was in poor taste; however, its probably a satire, not serious.
What do we do about this? The media will always gossip — the only thing we each can do is fight the fat talk! (Watch that video if you haven’t yet!)
OK – Back to your regularly scheduled programming!
New shoes definitely cure the blues!! I got my THIRD pair of sneakers in 3 months — I hope these work.
Track Shack is awesome. I am never buying my running shoes at a regular store like Sports Authority again. I will forever go to a specialized store! Track Shack let me return shoes with 30 miles on them!
I got a pair of Brooks. Keep your fingers crossed!
I also bought some goo for the long runs in my future.
Can’t wait to try them! I need to take a few days off of running to let my feet calm down after the evil Asics, but hopefully I can do a long run on Sunday!
My mid-afternoon snack was…. you guessed it! Yogurt and granola.
+ another serving! :) I was hungry.
And after Track Shack, I stopped at my friend’s house to enjoy the leftovers his mom cooked. Yay!! Mom-made meals are the best.
My dinner included a small portion of whole wheat spaghetti and meatballs – so good!
And a salad.
Well, as mentioned, no work out for me today because of the foot. It’s a rest day anyway, so that works out!
Have a wonderful evening! Time for LOST!
