My martial arts class that was supposed to start today got canceled for the entire semester. Nooo! I guess not enough people signed up. I was really looking forward to it, too. Oh well. On the upside, my schedule will be less hectic now, but I was still willing to squeeze it in for the sake of trying something new. Buh.

My grandma sent me home with a crapload of carrots from the carrot harvest (they live in the San Luis Valley where stuff like carrots & potatoes are regularly planted and my grandpa works during harvest season and stocks everybody up). So I'll be eating as many carrots as I can for the next couple of weeks, heh. I need to blanch some of them and put them in the freezer too.
She also gave me quite a few large zucchini from her garden. I loooove zucchini, so I'm definitely planning on making some for dinner a few times this week.
On a different note, I'm going to experiment with decreasing my protein intake a little bit. I've noticed for the past several months that I typically get almost twice (if not more) my recommended daily intake for protein. I think I got obsessed with trying to keep myself full at all times by loading up on protein (and fiber), but my appetite isn't as big as it used to be, so I think I might be able to get away with eating a little less protein. I'm not 100% sure what negative effects there are, if any, from eating too much (maybe building up extra muscle?), but I figured it's just something new I'll play around with and see how I feel.
Got out of bed at 5 am today and went for a run. Although it may sound cheesy, I really need to invest in a fanny pack and a small flashlight or something when I run this early. It's just way too dark during the first half and I just kinda feel paranoid the whole time and can't really enjoy myself. My biggest concern, as of this morning, are animals. I freak out over pretty much every animal that comes anywhere near me, so when I saw a fox and a skunk (!!!) today, I started sprinting, haha. But yeah, a light of some sort and some pepper spray might not be a bad idea. I'll start browsing for that stuff this week.
