First 5K tomorrow!

I have my first 5K tomorrow… the Henry Vilas Zoo Run Run! I’m getting nervous.  And excited!

I knew I would be going grocery shopping around dinner time, and didn’t want to shop hungry, so I had a bit of granola before I left:

I made a little trip to Whole Foods.  I’ve decided that in the future I need to also go to Copp’s or something for basics like milk and tortillas, where they are actually affordable!  I did, however, get to use my Chobani coupon!  It was kind of a fun experiment, to see what I could get at a reasonable price.  So for instance, while I skipped milk and tortillas, I did get some good Greek yogurt to eat with my cereal instead, and a few bagels, which I haven’t had in ages!

I felt like a quick and light dinner:

IMG_3037Baba ganoush with pita chips. I had a few more pita chips than pictured here because my dip to chip ratio was way off.  Oops!  Now I know, though, to NOT get the additional chips by bringing the bag to the table, but to just put a few on my plate.  Otherwise, I’ll eat way too many of these delicious things!

IMG_3040The last of the strawberries and Concord grapes from the Farmer’s Market last weekend.  The strawberries were great, but I only ate about 3 grapes.  At that point, I noticed that there was a spider web in the middle of the bunch, and a spider was crawling across my plate.  I naturally freaked out, and that was the end of the grapes.  Luckily none of the ones I ate were touching the spider web.  I still feel incredibly ick about it though… trying not to think about it!

All together:

Wish me luck!
