The forecast calls for torrential rain all day so I have decided not to head into the city for the race expo and will go tomorrow morning instead to pick up my number.
This change in plan caps off a taper week that went completely different than expected.
My shoulder/rotator cuff/bicep is still giving me trouble but I am hopeful to still run the half. Sure, there is always the walking option but I much prefer to run the race.
My revised taper plan has included the usual rest, bananas and sweet potatoes with the addition of Bio Freeze, Motrin, ice, and giving up complete control around the house.
To allow the boy into my kitchen with full control to make his own lunch was not easy for me to do but it was better than doing it myself with a frozen Chobani (my version of ice pack) on my shoulder.
I didn’t even flinch when I witnessed him eating the pickles out of the jar at 8:00 am while making the sandwich loaded with half of the bottle of mustard.
I am also starting to get used to this leaving clothes on floor of closet thing.
As well as the pile of socks that need to be matched up and put away.
I bet this is how hoarding begins. A random event in life leads you to ease up on your cleaning routine. Then you slowly learn to shut closet doors, bedroom doors and turn a blind eye to the growing mess that starts overflowing from the closets and takes over the house..
I can see it now: FORMER DR. OZ “HEALTHY REVENGE” STAR LOSES CONTROL AND IS NOW BURIED IN PILE OF LAUNDRY ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF HOARDING:BURIED ALIVE.
Let’s just hope I am fine, can run the race on Sunday and return to my normal clean and organized self.
Perhaps this new Rainbow Cookie Cupcake from Crumbs will help me.
How amazing does this cupcake look? I used to be a regular at Crumbs (fudge brownie cupcake my fave) until I decided to switch things up and opt for Cold Stone chocolate dipped waffle bowls.
I may need to take a break from resting for a Crumbs visit today.
Have a great Friday!
Do you have a Crumbs Bake Shop near you? Have you tried the Rainbow Cookie cupcake yet? Do you have a favorite cupcake?

I was only at Crumbs once on my last NYC trip and I got a white chocolate cupcake and DEVOURED it. I don’t even have a crazy sweet tooth, it was just so darn yum!
Holy cow, that cupcake looks amazing!! You can send me one of those ASAP! 😉
That cupcake counter looks deadly! Good luck with your race, you will do great! Don’t worry about a little pain… 😉
