Day 78 (Sweet Dee) - Scooter! NOOOoooooooo!!!!

This morning I was up at the butt-crack of dawn again with John & Stacey.  We all went to City Park because today was Day #1 of the Couch to 5K plan for Stacey - and Day #2 for me (and John had to do a 3 mile run for training for his upcoming marathon).  

It all went great!  We enjoyed our jog/walk, and realized that this is TOTALLY something that we can both accomplish.  Slow & steady wins the race! 

Then I got on my scooter to head home, and it didn't start.  
Luckily Stacey was still there, so she gave me a ride home, but my poor lil' Audrey 2*!  I locked her up in the park, and had to leave her there until I had the time to walk her over to John's place.  So sad. 

Luckily I have multiple other ways to get to & from work!  Today I rode my bike.  Maybe this was a good thing in a way - make me ride my bike more! ;)  Haha!  

I really do hope she's not dead though, and that it's an easy fix.  I've only had a coupla months to enjoy her, and I'd like a lot more time than that**

*My first car was named "Audrey", so I found it appropriate to name my first scooter "Audrey 2".  Of course, I totaled that car after 4 years of driving it, and in scooter years that's like 1 year so I really hope I didn't jinx her.  However "Audrey 2" just happens to also be the name of the killer plant from outer space in Little Shop of Horrors, so I'm hoping it gives her super strength! 

**Annnnnd I'm an idiot.  MY SCOOTER ISN'T BROKEN AT ALL!  John drove it when we rode to the park together, and he is good about turning off the kill switch, and I am not (I usually just turn the key).  Whoops.  :)  
YAY for no broken scooter though!!

Egg (over-easy), on leftover beet greens with hot sauce.  Side of Ezekiel sprouted toast with butter & sugar-free raspberry jelly.

Unsalted nuts & seeds.

1 small vegetarian Jimmy John's sandwich (the free guy came by again today!  YAY)
Crappy work coffee (uck), with 1/2 & 1/2 and sugar.

Mixed greens with roasted beets, caramelized onions, & goat cheese.  Homemade maple-dijon vinaigrette.

2 pluots.

1 bag of popcorn (I was feeling snack-ey!)
Salmon burger w/ half a whole wheat bun, dijon mustard, salad with vinaigrette, about 8 potato chips, and 2 screwdrivers.  I was at a cookout, and I actually think I did pretty darn well! :)

Day #2 of Couch to 5K!  5-minute warm up walk, then 60 seconds of jogging alternated with 90 seconds of walking for 20 minutes.
40 min bike ride (into work, to John's, to Tyson's for cookout, and home).
