Just a normal Sunday over here â€“ a little bit of running, a little bit of working, and a little bit of relaxing. Howâ€™s your day so far?
I ran 3.0 miles this morning. Itâ€™s cold but sunny out! It was actually a great run, and Iâ€™m thinking that my knee and IT band is finally sorted out from my October 30th marathon, which is good news because Iâ€™d love to start introducing longer distances soon! All in due time though. 🙂
Lunch was a chop chop salad of lots of different flavors.
In the mix:
- Romaine lettuce
- Cold roasted broccoli
- Pumpkin seeds
- Cold grilled tofu
With some hummus-y toast.
Iâ€™m watching a very interesting movie on You Tube right now called The Business of Being Born! It explores how big business is impacting our nationâ€™s concept of what a â€˜normalâ€™ birth should be like (kind of like how Food Inc talks about factory farming issues).
Itâ€™s such an interesting movie! Iâ€™ve been interested in home births for a while now, especially since That Wife has a home birth. I love the part of the movie where a midwife says, â€œMost people put more effort into researching their new camera or car than they do for the birth of their child.â€ Iâ€™m not 100% convinced that Iâ€™ll do a home birth, but Iâ€™ll definitely want to learn more when Iâ€™m actually pregnant. Knowledge is power! (Please note that Iâ€™m not judging anyone or any occupation by saying I want a home birth or to be educated about my options.)
Hmmâ€¦ a home birth on HTP. Now, wonâ€™t that be something interesting to blog about? 😉
