Funny Foto Friday: Truth in Food

Oh running.  Sometimes you are a bit manic.  One day running is all booty shorts on a crisp summer morning skipping through the hallways high fiving everyone it sees.  However, sometimes running is more like pooping in your pants pooping in the bushes.  Right now I’m doing a bit of duck walking.

The other day I sort of horked (that is a word, rhymes with fork, synonymous with borked or screwed) my calf – or something.  It hurts when I run. Fortunately, it is not acute “hurts when I pee” kind of pain, but more dull aching.  So, for the past week or so, I’ve been doing “test runs”. Each of them failing.  So, I have an appointment with a sports medicine doctor on Monday who is also a 3:15 marathoner. I’m going to look into having my leg amputated and getting one of those sweet upside down question mark cheetah legs.

BUT, I know that this is something that will heal eventually and I’ve been meaning to do more biking.  So, I’ll roll with it for now.

Here is a representative picture of me that shows the part of my calf that I think is injured.  
Oh darn, the calf part was cut off in this fully representative picture of me

This week’s funny foto Friday is all about being honest with food.

I eat a LOT of cereal. I completely agree with this representation

Mmmmmm, McD's. Tastes like shame and embarrassment. 

Oh, I think I might be a vegetarian now

Finally, the weekly picture of my son.  
Trains rule - he is so happy that his hand clapping is blurry! Happy Friday!

Booo on the calf pain. Hope that's fixed up quickly. Adorable picture of your little boy. :)

I only clicked on this post because of the "injured calf picture." lol

I was talking with my friend today who has a 5' tall girlfriend that GAINED 70-80 pounds on a vegetarian diet in less then a year. I can only imagine how much ramen & junk she is eating to gain that much weight.

I got Lays during my grocery shopping yesterday...and I'm vegan! ;p

That's why I failed as a vegetarian. Glad your calf pain isn't "hurt when you pee" pain, but still sucks that it hurts. Hopefully when your sports doc gets done with you you'll be clapping as fiercely as your son (what a doll he is!)

What in the world are those things floating above the Lays potato chip picture? My best guess is that it's the bottom part of your calf picture.

The train is blurry too. How fast is that train!

Hoping that your doc appointment goes well today. It's not like you actually need both legs to run, so I fully support the cheetah leg idea.

Sorry to hear about your calf. I hope its and easy fix.
The cereal box is 100% truth! I love it. The box and cereal.

Hope the doctor fixes your calf!

I'm kind of reading out of order, but I hope your calf gets better real soon. I understand how mad you must be going by not being able to run. :)
