Today I kinda craved an normal omelette filled with cheese and green pepper with a small “salad” (as you see it’s just a bit lettuce, cucumber and more pepper so idk.. a few leftovers) but it was soooooo satisfying
i headcanon victor as being a competent cook, maybe having had to take care of himself before he really started making money, and also being very conscientious of his diet during the skating season. but maybe he was operating in survival mode for a while after he did start making money, and he was getting thinner and thinner, and sick too often, and yakov discovered that he was basically living off of green smoothies and fried eggs with kolbasa and was like, vitya u numbnuts, u have money, get a fucking chef!!
(yuuri still thinks that victor shyly serving him fried eggs with kolbasa for breakfast in bed is the most romantic meal he’s ever had in his life)
2014.02.20 Dinner: Brussel sprouts, green beans, and chicken with a sunny side egg on top. I was afraid this would taste too plain without any sauces…but egg yolk was more than enough. Yolkporn!!…so good!
Running update: I’ve still been running a lot! Last week I ran 44 miles…and this morning i ran 8 miles. I took 3 days off for our church retreat (and I’m really feeling it), but things are back to normal. My next marathon is on June 21…and I’m so excited! My goal is to break 3:30, so I’ve been training pretty hard. Running is life, seriously.
