Even though I have a bit of "food blogger" in me, I don't usually post what I eat every meal because frankly- I eat the same thing all the time. You would be incredibly bored reading the same thing every day! But every once in awhile I try some new items, so I am going to try to do a full day food post every once in awhile. Today is the lucky day! Keep in mind that because of my stomach I avoid too much insoluble fiber- which is actually great for most everyone else. So if you are wondering where my veggies are- I swear I am trying!
Breakfast: Kelly's Fabulous Everyday Oatmeal
1/2 cup of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup of raspberries
1 cut up apple

1/4 cup of strawberries
1 tablespoon of raw almond butter

Overall my food today was yummy, particularly that yummy Coldstone ice cream. I was not a huge fan of my dinner. I'm not sure if I just don't like couscous (I haven't had it in years!) or if the tomato/couscous combo was not good. But needless to say, I think I will eat the rest of my scallops tomorrow with sweet potato french fries instead. Plus Eric made a ridiculously nice smelling tomato sauce tonight that I will have to enjoy sometime this week.
In training news I went swimming today. I did 30 laps or 750 yards. Not horrible but I have to get my butt to the pool more often so I can build up some endurance. I am starting to worry about the "open water" aspect of the triathlon- I really need my little "break" at the wall every 25 yards! I still have some biking questions, so if you bike at all please check out my biking questions from yesterday :) I also bought myself a knee brace today. The doctor and PT did not tell me to get it, but if my body is not holding my patella in the right spot, logically I think I should help it along! I am going to wear it for my first time on Tuesday for a bike ride so I'll let you know how it goes. Basically, my knee is still bothering me even after just biking so I am looking for a solution other than giving up biking. I REALLY don't want to have to give up running AND biking. Ah!
On a completely random note- Eric and I are planning a trip to Washington DC for the beginning of August. We are debating between two hotels- one is near the Capitol and one is near the Dupont Circle Metro Stop. Does anyone live or visit DC often? I think anywhere near the Metro would probably be okay...but would one of these be a lot better than the other?
