Birthday birthday birthdayyyy!
And relatively boring.
Oh well. My cat wore a bow all day to make up for it.
I got some new riding gear (kerrits tights and winter gloves for any horsey people), some awesome Express jeans, a sweater, and LEG WARMERS. Uhhh, I love leg warmers. Helloooo wearing non-boots again.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go riding. My trainer went foxhunting. ANDDD, this morning I was supposed to have a lesson, but she forgot that she had a doctor’s appt, sooo.. I am le sad.
..Unideal birthday aside, TO THE EATS!
(insert random refuelage until dinner.. hunger monster came out and carby carbs were shoved in my mouth before being pictured, lol)
(insert dessert of gf+lactose-intolerant friendly cheesecake.. forgot to take a picture of it, but it was a success so the recipe will be up SOON)
Want to know what’s unfortunate? I’m pretty sure I’m becoming allergic to peanuts.
I eat peanut butter ALL THE TIME at school. Because of my food allergies, it’s necessary for me to get enough to eat. But, because of this, I think I’m suffering from overexposure and therefore my body has started having allergic reactions to it.
Sounds weird, right? I’m prone to it, apparently. I became allergic to apples this way. I ate several every day for about a year and a half, then one day I had a severe allergic reaction to it. I believe I had had less severe ones before and hadn’t noticed it. Buuut, that ended my apple eating.
My tongue started swelling after I ate my peanut butter, which I had been noticing at school too. I had thought this had been happening from too much salt in the pb, but today was the first time I’d had a good amount of peanut butter since I’d come home and it happened immediately after. Coincidence? Probs not.
Obviously, I’m going to my doctor to get an allergy test, but I know my allergies pretty well. So, it may be the last time I’ll have it for a while.
..Luckily, there is still cashew and almond butter. I mean, I am the NUT Butter Runner, not just peanut butter.
ALSO, yesterday at the gym I had a hankering to run on the treadmill. Weird, right? At school, I cannot stand the treadmills. I had started cross training, but it just felt ugh and I wanted to MOOOOVE, so I ran in my vibrams.
I realized how my feet had weakened since I’d stopped running in them. Running on the treadmill wasn’t mental torture, surprisingly. I got in my groove and went. Of course, I’m not replacing my outdoor runs with treadmill runs ever, but I might incorporate some more barefoot treadmill runs SPARINGLY into my routine to keep my foot strength up.
Okay, so that’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed my first WIAW! 🙂 I had fun. Thanks Jenn for hosting it!
