Today's lunch is a little bit random, so it will pair nicely with the random thoughts going through my mind today.

Last night for dinner, I made an "easy" dish that included seasoning some chicken breasts and making them at 400 degrees, along with baking some seasoned veggies (asparagus, yellow pepper, and red pepper).  Well, the chicken didn't thaw all the way, but the package said "Cooks perfectly, even when frozen!"  I should have realized that sure, it would cook fine, it would just take longer (duh!).  So the prep for the dinner *was* easy, but it took quite a while to bake.  I should have just thrown it all in the frying pan and sauteed it.

Anyway, today's lunch was a leftover chicken breast with leftover veg.  I added some lettuce and reduced-fat shredded cheddar and made it into a salad.
It was pretty much just "ok" last night, and it's pretty much just okay again today.  Meh.  Oh well.  I did bring some Thanksgiving leftover reduced-fat, reduced-sugar pumpkin chocolate chip cookies today!  Yay!!

Random things I've been thinking today:
  • relationships are a lot like the people that comprise them: beautiful but also complicated, fragile, and usually a little messed up
  • If I won $200 million, what would I do?  Obviously pay off all debt (mine and my loved ones).  Move my folks to Bburg; dad would never have to work another day in his life; get them a nice, one-level house all set up for dialysis; and a fenced-in backyard for Katie :).  I think that's pretty much it.  Any leftover would go to charity.  Of course it would always be nice to have more money, but I also think it's good to accept and embrace teh 
  • Spent a lot of time on this morning's run thinking about whether or not now is the right time for me to train for a marathon.  The more I think about it, the more I think not.    If Bob ended up doing it, I would be extremely sad not to do it with him, but I just don't think now is the right time for me.  The thing is, marathon training takes a lot of time, and I feel like I am giving all of the time I can at that point, in regards to my fitness.  I just don't think I can give any more.  Plus, all through the half training, I was looking forward to taking the winter to do strength training.  I really want to get stronger, and I think that is where I want to focus my energy.  So that's sort of where I am leaning right now.  It's always possible I could change my mind tomorrow, though ;)
