I am trying not to think about it... how do you shut out negative thoughts?
For now I am trying to focus on a lil something more fun like...
Yesterday as I was enjoying a Veggie Burger at Mel's Diner A.K.A a Gardenburger Patty on Mel's "whole wheat bun"Eric asked me how it was. I replied, "Good, I can now get the same burger at Mimi's, Awful Annies, and Mels." - which sounds like a negative thing but if you knew how much I love the Gardenburger brand original patty you would know that this is a dream come true.
Eric- "Burger King too right?"
Me: Nope, Burger King has the Morning Star brand veggie burgers
Eric- I thought it was Gardenburger
Me: Nope, Morningstar. Trust me I know my veggie burgers.
Eric: I could of sworn I saw Gardenburger.
Me: Nope I will bet you $100 dollars that it is Morningstar.
Eric: Okay fine $100 Dollars.
Me: You will actually bet me $100 dollars that I can spend on anything I want?
Me: I just won $100 dollars. Score.
We quickly pulled out our cell phones like we were in an old western draw, hitting the google search app at lightening speed. We both searched Burger King's Veggie Patty's and waited about 10 minutes for everything to load. When I heard a distinct "CRAP" come from Eric's mouth I knew that I had won. I was happier than a contestant on minute to win it.
SO.. what to do with that $100? Well there is a little something I have always wanted but never wanted to spend nearly a $100 on...take a look at these beauties.
I know what the hell are those right? Well my friends, these are none other than the Vibram Five Finger "barefoot running" shoes. Ugly as sin? Yes. But these "shoes" are not for looks. They are for a more natural style of running.
If you haven't heard anything about it yet there is new research being done regarding running shoes and if they do more harm than good because of the way they make you run. For example: running in regular running shoes you tend to land more on your heels..but before there was ever such things as running shoes we ran barefoot. Do you think you would want to land on your heels while running barefoot? That could be pretty painful. SO barefoot we have more of a forefoot strike, which some people are now saying leads to less injuries because it is how we were "born to run".
Kind of cool right?
I think so too. So, Eric said I could get a pair of these puppies. I will admit that this brightens my day a bit. Now I just have to hope that they have my size because believe it or not, stores rarely even have these in stock because of their popularity. So wish me luck for a better day and something to keep some negative thoughts at bay.
What are you looking forward to today?
