Hello beautiful Saturday! Lazyish morning, although I was up too early. I made some protein waffles. I haven’t had blueberries all week!
Deeelicious! I spent a good chunk of the morning reading blogs and catching up. Then I actually worked for 1-1/2 hours. So lame….. While I was working, John was making up pizza dough! I thought it was bread, but he asked if I wanted pizza for lunch. Yes! I was hungry, though – so I nibbled on some cereal while he baked.
I swear, it does not matter what kind of cereal is in the house. I will snack on it.
The pizza was a complete success!
That’s ground beef on there. This was his best crust to date. It’s actually modified from a baked donut recipe. He changed it by using 1/2 wheat flour, reducing the sugar to 1 tablespoon of sugar (and made 1/2 of the recipe). It was nice and puffy and chewy. This would be a perfect dessert pizza crust too, as written.
So, another month has come and gone. Lots of things happened this month for me!
The good pretty much outweighed the bad, but the injury took up 3/4 of the month!
I learned a few things this month. I don’t have to rely on exercise to maintain my weight – or even to lose, really. I also can handle stress pretty well. I can blow off steam and be laughing later in the day. Although, I am thinking about making a swear jar for the month of May (to which John replied that we could fund a vacation with it – he is hilarious, I tell you 🙄 ).
I’ll get to May goals in a second, need to take a yogurt break:
Does this not look divine? It was! Coconut lime yogurt topped with toasted coconut. We biked there. I wore Triscuit outside for the first time this year, with plenty of sunscreen. Mid 80s today!
We did 15 miles today. I was actually 1 mph faster today and it felt really good. I kind of got a little weepy for a second on the path because I was so, so thankful to be able to ride again. Even if I am not 100%, I am so happy about this. I am taking tomorrow off, as I do not want to push it.
Came home and made some dinner! It’s the BBQ salad, only I had it with pork.
No nuts on it because I ate about 1/2 cup of cashews before dinner 😳
I think I like the chicken better.
Now, where was I? Oh yes – May goals.
- The return to running. I hope this happens. It all depends on when the weakness in my leg is gone and the leg can support itself.
- Lose 3 pounds. There – I put a concrete number on the month! I actually lost almost 5 pounds in April, which is completely shocking to me. Who knew a herniated disk would actually help me.
- Go to the dentist.
- Really, really think about my current job. It’s fairly stressful, so I have to decide if all the great benefits it has are worth the stress and low pay.
- Try to make the blog more interesting with recipes and lifting stuff (or anything else you want to see!).
I am off tonight to my sisters house and work with Storm. I am doing something with rally or obedience tomorrow, but I don’t remember what LOL! So, I have to practice. I’ll have pics of whatever we are doing tomorrow.
Question: Do you have goals for May?
