Run to Eat

I've been running. Sometimes, when I'm out there, I expect to look up and see pigs flying above me. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm going to keep watching. Last week I ran a mile without stopping. I know it's probably a little sad to be so excited about such a small distance, but ya'll. The last time I ran a mile without stopping I still Instant Messaged with people and Friends was nowhere near it's last season. Apparently those are my great cultural references, and yes I just made IM a verb.

In other news, the weight loss has been slow the past couple of weeks. I'm sure it's me just piling on the muscle. Or the fact that I feel the need to eat so much on the weekends. Either one. Sigh. I'm working on that.

In the meantime, I thought I would share some of my favorite snacks right now. I really wish that the following list consisted of celery sticks and garbanzo beans, but I do like my processed foods. I'm working on that one too.

VitaTops make me happy. They aren't a brownie, but they do satisfy my need for chocolate. Put a tiny amount of natural peanut butter on top and you have yourself one delicious snack.
Aged White Cheddar Pirate's Booty. Okay, I know this stuff has been around forever, but I had never tried it. And then I did. And now I can't get enough of the stuff. Luckily, they come in portion sized bags for those of us learning food willpower.

Are you noticing a trend here? I do love me some chips and salty snacks. I also like proper grammar, but for some reason it evades me.

Okay, those are my top 3 right now. Along with all the healthy whole grains, fruits, veggies, and nuts of course. Do you have any (mostly) healthy snacks I should know about? If you do, please share!

The fact that you can even run a mile without stopping amazes me. The last time I ran was NEVER!

I just ate fried pickles followed by a trip to a candy store (as featured on Food Network and Southern Living). So I'm going to sit this one out.

Skinny cow ice cream sandwiches, sugar free jello pudding with sugar free cool whip. Boy the real deal but is a good substitute.
