Hey y’all! Ha ha, can a yankee girl say ‘y’all’?? Just to let you know I am feeling fine today. I got over my annoyance from yesterday and just am going with the flow. Still unsure as to the actual closing on the house, but it will happen. I didn’t stress eat yesterday. I had a piece of toast with nutbutter and jam for a snack last night and that was it. Phew! Sometimes I actually have some control 😀
The morning didn’t start off on the right foot, though:
Overflow!! That’s what happens when you try to make coffee before you have had any coffee! It took all my self control not to lick the counter.
Breakfast was protein waffles topped with a mixture of plain greek yogurt, raspberries, and honey. It was good!
I got right to work and finished up early today, seeing as I started early. Lunch time was wrap time. This is a egg/egg white combo with laughing cow and hot sauce!
Mmmmm…. lots of hot sauce:
It’s cold (38 degrees) and rainy today. It actually snowed a little bit 😯 Doesn’t mother nature know it is almost May? I took a walk this afternoon and listened to the latest 2 Fit Chicks and a Microphone podcast. While the rest of me is progressing really well, the walking front is still difficult. It is kind of painful and I don’t have any speed yet. I think running is still at least many days away. When I try a couple jog steps, my knee does not support me at all. No hurry, though. I want to make sure I am fully ready. Here is a beautiful crabapple tree I saw on my walk!
I was feeling the stirfry for dinner tonight. We used a Kikomann ginger teriyaki sauce. Loves the proteiny shrimps!
I cut my pear different, too – just to be a rebel.
Pixie was singing in the rain. See – she does open her eyes!
Sometimes I have some concerns about how well I am going to heal from the sciatica. I know the doctor said 6 to 8 weeks and I am halfway there, so there is time. The numbness of half my knee coupled with the burning pain it gets is just so weird, especially since the injury is actually in my back and not my knee. There is nothing to do but wait and see what happens. The day I can run will be the day I know I am back to normal (or what passes for that around here!).
Off to get some coffee and chillax tonight!
Question: If I do a video blog, what would you like me to talk about?
