i love lists

december goal: taking back the evenings
straight from the pages of the little blue notebook . . .

defining the goal

making sure it's MICRO-style

the obligatory checklist

in writing?!
skeptics may wonder why i take time to write all of these things down, or why i gravitate towards cute little charts and checkboxes.

i may be crazy and a little bit on the compulsive side. but you know what? IT WORKS.

race training plans [back when i used to run for real. i'm sure this was a super-light week.]


massive and intimidating grant-writing checklists.


writing my first 'real' journal article while fighting the urge to dry-heave.


board prep.


learning spanish.


and at the ripe old age of 31, i really don't mind if some people might think i'm ridiculous. i will stand by my checklists + notebooks with pride!

happy december! anyone else have a goal for the month?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12.1.11

workout: 31 min run, 3.03 mi [10:17/mi ave] in 30-degree temps. probably the coldest run of the season so far, but it definitely wasn't bad.

puttanesca . . . or whatever
this recipe was kind of blah. it probably didn't help that i subbed sardines for anchovies [they were out at the store].

whole grain spaghetti with broccoli, olives, sardines, tomatoes, and parmesan

see, it doesn't even sound that good. and then, i accidentally [really - it WAS an accident] left it out overnight rendering several servings of leftovers unsuitable for consumption. ahh well, at least it wasn't something i loved in the first place!

spanish: si.

reading: more hyperglycemia/hyperinsulinism. i finally understand GLUD1 mutations.
