Will Work for Mexican Food (pt. 2)

My desire for cheese enchiladas is almost over-powering. Chad and I have really buckled down on our budget - we are trying to cook more meals at home and really be careful about going out to eat. Luckily, we have a great group of friends in Wilmore who are budget conscience as well - so we usually get together on the weekends and have cook-outs or pot-luck meals, rather than going to a restaraunt. This has been really good for us - but I have to get my mexican food fix soon or I may break. Chad has been working really hard this month with three different jobs, and the fruits of his labor will be deposited in our bank account tommorow. Luckily, I have the sweetest husband in the world and he has allocated some of his hard-earned funds to take me out for my favorite meal - chips & salsa, cheese enchiladas (with cheese sauce, not enchilada sauce) rice & beans, and perhaps an ice cold margarita.

Food has become a big motivator for me in my training. When I feel like I just can't run anymore, I think of all of the calories I've burned and how they will enable me to have those nachos, that cookie, or that fruit pie. Dangle a cheese enchilada in front of me on a stick and I'll run for 26.2 miles.
