Graduate

6 Jun

I got three words for you:

high school graduate

Graduation itself may be long and boring, but whatever. I’m not a high school student anymore. I feel like I am done with school forever except – sike – not really.

For graduation, my mom, dad, brother, and godmother went to the Corbett Fish House. They claim they have healthy fried fish. This is there little paragraph on their menu:
“It’s no accident we have Portland’s Best Fish & Chips. Besides top quality fish and the best French fries on the market, we use 100% rice bran oil. The tastiest of all the cooking oils, it’s not hydrogenated and contains no trans-fats. We filter the oil twice a day to keep it clean.

We simply bread the fish in brown rice flour, not a batter, so our Fish & Chips is Gluten-Free.

The combination of clean, high-quality oil and a light dusting of rice flour creates a delicious and healthful serving of fish. This process actually seals and steams the fish. Done correctly, deep frying is a dry cooking technique that produces elegant, greaseless foods with crisp coatings and succulent interiors.”

 I end up trying oyster shooters for the first time. They were okay, but I would not get them to me. They don’t have that much taste. I also got a salad and walleye fish and ‘chips‘. The chips were sweet potato fries.

The Corbett Fish House was so delicious! They were semi cheap, had great food, and were just really quaint.  Next time I am going back I am getting the clam chowder my dad ordered. It was the bomb.

Afterwards we went home and had some Dairy Queen ice cream cake that I picked out. It was German chocolate. Best thing ever.

By the way, Dairy Queen’s blizzard of the month is brownie batter. I will be making a special trip for that soon.

————————————————————————————————

My week is jam packed and I just started summer vacation. I have a job interview tonight, I want to run my puppy on the trails, I have another job interview this week, and then work coming up. It’s all making me anxious and overwhelmed. When can I fit things in? Yes, by ‘things’ I mean working out. Does that mean I am obsessed with my body? No. It means I enjoy being healthy and getting a good sweat in. I’m also just anxious because I wanted to start swimming lessons. After all, I do have some $$$ to spend after graduation.

I will be adding some new strength exercises in my routine because my foot started to hurt again. Well, it’t not exactly painful, but I know it doesn’t feel right. I think I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis. Any ideas on how to correct this problem? I have been rotating my shoes to see if it’s just my shoes. I don’t think it is. It’s difficult to even tell. I still need to wear my Vibrams more. I think that will help significantly.

Any suggestions would be lovely.

My godmother did get me these:

They are awesome and everything, but they’re too narrow in my midfoot section so I don’t think I will be wearing them any time soon.

Now onto my favorite part… honorable eats!

 Coconut donut
Asparagus + mushroom + goat cheese bread pudding
Vegan chocolate peanut butter cake
Crab cakes
Lemon meringue pie
 Goats milk yogurt!

Do you like/eat fish and chips?

Ever tried goats milk/yogurt/cheese?

    CONGRATS!! I felt overwhelmed too after i graduated because they was still a lot of stuff going on but you will get into a routine and everything will work itself out.

    i love that goats milk yogurt!

    Congrats on your graduation and good luck on the job interview – I’m sure you’ll do great! Also, I agree w/ Sweet Cheeks – you’ll fall into a routine and find time for everything that’s important.
    I LOVED TJ’s goats milk yogurt but I use Greek Yogurt instead b/c it has way more protein & it’s hard for me to get protein in my diet.
    Have a great start to your summer!

    Congrats on graduating!!! I love your dress, that color looks so good on you!
    I had some issues with my plantar fascia and my mom had plantar faciitis. I don’t know what caused it or how to correct it, but when my foot really hurt I frozed a water bottle and rolled the bottom of my foot on it and that felt really good.

    Congrats on your graduation!
    Foot injuries are no fun, but I feel like as long as you re smart, you can train ithrough them just fine. I had tendinitis in my foot last summer, and I iced (with frozen peas) like crazy and was careful when I ran. I m sure it will heal soon!

      That’s what I’ve been doing. Thanks. (:

    I had PF for a few weeks after a long serious run. I just simply cut my miles down for two weeks and it went away. So strange…or maybe I’m just lucky.

    • lifttorun June 6, 2011 at 3:59 PM #

      That happens to me too. Like it hurt after my long run. This happened before then it went away then came back. I don’t know what to do.

    Congrats! I have those same shoes in green, and they are quite narrow, but I love how light they feel.
    Fish is one of my favorite foods, and I bet the sweet potato fries with it were amazing.

    Congrats! Enjoy your summer!

    My GAW I want all your food- especially the cakes!
    I had plantar fisciitis- I went to a podiatrist who fitted me for orthotics. I had pretty much immediate results- all pain was gone in a matter of days, othotics=miracle workers!
    Good luck with your busy week
    Xxx

    I love the Saucony shoes, but I tried them on too and didn’t love how they fit. Too bad because they are super cute!

    congratulations!

    congratulations so much on graduating!
    the food looks yummy and the dinner sounds yummy.

    as for working out and holding a job, once the job starts and you start working, you kind of get into a comfortable routine and you find the best time of day to work out/eat/etc, and it just kind of falls into place (hopefully for you it will)
