Tripping: Of the sidewalk variety. And of the road variety.
Wednesday evening, I finally worked up the motivation to go for a run. I grabbed my work phone (since I was waiting for an e-mail) and ran out the door. I got about a mile from my house, and glanced down at my phone to check and see if I had an e-mail. That’s when I tripped over the random cliff in the sidewalk.
There was a lot of blood. I won’t post the picture, because it’s gross, but if you follow me on twitter, you probably saw the aftermath. I actually didn’t feel that bad at first, and I jogged the rest of the way home. I walked around the fan with some friends, and then after a couple of hours, I realized my knee was super swollen, and I couldn’t really bend my leg. Sweet.
I’m mostly just disappointed that I won’t be able to work out for awhile. Then again, it’s not that bad of timing, since I’ll be in a car for most of the weekend.
Eric and I will be road tripping from Virginia to Dallas on Saturday & Sunday.
I’m pretty excited to see the great state of Texas! What I’m not excited about, is packing.
I’m actually really bad at packing. I bring things I don’t need, I forget things I do need. I just throw everything in a suitcase, and then I can’t find things unless I literally empty out my whole suitcase… it’s bad. And since I have to go in a truck from Virginia to Texas, a plane from Dallas to Ohio, and a Yaris from Ohio to Virginia… I need to pack light.
So I did some research, planned it out, and packed my heart out.
Here’s what went in the suitcase:
- Clothes- 4 dresses, 2 pairs of shorts, 3 sets of workout clothes, 1 swimsuit, 3 t-shirts, 3 blouses, 1 pair of cropped pants, 2 summer scarves, lots of underoos.
- Shoes- limited myself to 1 pair of sandals, 1 pair of flats, and 1 pair of heels. (Then I wore my running shoes, since those take up the most space.)
- Makeup- instead of packing full sizes like I normally do, I picked up the essentials at CVS. These are also perfect for packing to the gym.
- Jewelry- A girl’s gotta accessorize…
Road Trip Friendly Snacks:
I’m not always a fan of what’s available on the road, so these snacks should keep me from getting too grouchy in the passengers seat 😉
