I used to be all about Twitter. Under the name redheadrunswild, I would tweet about training for my first half-marathon and then my second and anything else related to running. I found it to be fun and mildly amusing, or at least a way to pass the time. It also allowed me to connect with other runners and feel apart of a community.
For about 5 seconds.
Then, after those 5 seconds, I felt like I was in high school again. Ostracized and definitely not part of the cool clique. Instead of it being the girl with the red Ford Probe and her followers, it was the #runnerds and seemingly everyone who was training for the 2010 Chicago Marathon (#cm10). I began to tweet less and eventually stopped.
Occasionally, I’d get a direct message from a pal or log on to tweet a giveaway I really wanted to win but I was no longer a part of the Twitter community. It just wasn’t a big deal to me.
And it still isn’t.
Of course, it didn’t stop me from downloading Tweet Deck on my phone. I blame boredom … as if I could ever be bored. My new username/handle is healthy_strides if you care. It’s OK if you don’t. Getting pooped and peed on pretty much cements the fact that I’ll never be cool. But, today, I’ll be posting What I (Really) Ate Wednesday as opposed to showing you what I ate Tuesday on Wednesday.
So what did I eat Tuesday?
Bowl of pumpkin oats (photo so crappy I refuse to share) and egg white omelet with turkey sausage.
Leftover Sloppy Buffalo Joes on a bed of romaine with blue cheese and ranch dressing
Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Skinny Cow, rice cake with sunflower seed butter and a hot chocolate
What are your favorite snacks? Do you use Twitter?
