Sunday heralds the new work week for me, and the requisite bagel!
Today was blueberry.
Then it was time for the other pre work Sunday ritual:
Freshly stocked with produce and dairy!
Work was a little slow today, so I got down to making some soap. I still have a business that I periodically make soap for, and she contacted me this week. It’s near cherry blossom time, so I have been making a bunch of cherry soap for her (which I can’t stand, oddly enough).
John had run some errands and brought me a little marshmallow egg with caramel. Gotta love sale Easter candy LOL.
Then it was lunchtime and I had some carrots:
Plus a green smoothie made with pumpkin, brown rice protein powder, Barlean’s Omega 3 and cinnamon.
Didn’t like this combo very much, I have to say. At least it was nutritious.
After a little more work, it got slow again 🙄 , so I decided to give the bike a try! I nabbed a date and some nut butter and headed out to test the asphalt.
Look at this happy biker:
I missed it so much in the last 2.5 weeks!! The ride went well. Not really much pain, but I have real weakness in my left leg. I cannot go fast. My brain is telling my leg to push harder and it just won’t go. It’s like when you run in your dreams and you run really slow, even though you are trying to run fast (does anyone else dream like that?) Hills were a little funny that way because I just kept getting slower and slower as I went up. There were only a couple small hills, which was the plan. I actually went to see my folks (unannounced). My dad wasn’t there, but I was able to visit with my mom. Then I biked home. 6.5 miles – so good start to get back on the bike! Overall very pleased with my injury progress. Biker babe is back in action!!
Had to make a snack when I got back!
Got a call that the closing on the house is scheduled for Tuesday. I can’t believe it’s actually happening! Now I need to decide whether to try to flip another house, start a business, or keep doing what I am doing. Too many choices.
Dinner time was a constructed BBQ chicken salad since we got new lettuce to replace the produce soup I had to toss on Friday. 😀
I’ll be working late tonight to finish up if there is work to be had, plus more soapmaking, foam rolling, and stretching. And I need to ponder an evening snack……
