Now that the Disney Princess Half Marathon is less than a month away (yikes), I am in full costume planning mode over here.
Of course, I have always known I will wear a tiara. I don't think I have ever worn one in my life, and if running a half marathon isn't a good enough reason, I don't know what is. Amy Ferrah Fowler agrees.
Bahahaha. I died laughing the first time I saw that, and every single time since.
Right now I have a little tiara that is attached to a hair clip so it shouldn't be too much of a bother. Other than the tiara, I thought I would make a pink tutu and call it a day.
That was, until I saw this costume:
Isn't that super cute? (I would obviously wear a black shirt.) And classic Disney. Plus, every girl and her mom will have a tutu and a tiara on. I am slightly worried that the ears would annoy me, but beauty is pain. So, I am thinking Princess Minnie is the final costume choice. Do you think Minnie ever wore a tiara? If not, she will now. Hahaha.
I am so sore from my race on Sunday . I am never sore from running. But, I have been training at about a 10 minute mile, and during the race, I ran more of a 9 minute 20 second mile. Who thought 40 seconds could make that big of a difference? I almost didn't run yesterday, but to work the lactic acid out of my muscles, I jogged 3 miles while watching New Girl.
Breakfast and lunch were nothing too exciting. But dinner....oh my goodness.

|Lunch and snacks: cottage cheese and pear (3), butternut squash soup (2) TJ's fiber bar (3), carrots, radishes, and an apple|
I made chicken tamale bake (click *here* for the recipe). This was one of the easiest recipes I have made, and according to Dan, the "best I have made so far." I have to agree, it was super good. And super easy to make. Tonight, you should buy the stuff to make this. Then, you should invite me over for dinner. :)

My only complaint is the lack of veggies. Next time I should serve it with a big salad.
To have pre-cooked chicken (for this and a few more recipes to come) I followed *these directions* for bulk chicken cooking in the crock pot. The chicken came out perfect, and Dan saved the left over broth for soup.
For dessert, I was feelin' Elvisish, so I added a banana to my peanut butter cheerios. Have you tried these yet? Mmmm....
Off to finish a 4ish mile run! :) Have a great day!
Thought for the day:
DP (31) + RP (6) - EP (39) = -2. Looks like I am starting off the week in the negatives. Typical Monday.
