Hi all! I basically skipped a breakdown post for Saturday. I had the blueberry sauce post scheduled (or so I thought) and when I got home last night, it hadn’t. So I just uploaded that and decided to take a blog break. I was pretty fatigued after our Memorial weekend picnic. It’s amazing how a houseful of people can make you so tired, even when it isn’t even your house! I ate way too much yesterday. Didn’t win this throwdown:
I also ran yesterday morning for a longer period of time. I went out for 2.5 miles. I was doing pretty well until the last 1/4 mile, then I just had no strength in my left leg at all and I started having a galloping run. No pain during running, which was good. I stopped then because I didn’t want to put undue stress on my right leg (and make it any bigger than my left than it already is!). There is hope for a race in 2 weeks, I think. I will be 2 weeks stronger in the left leg.
Anyway, on to today. It’s bagel day! We biked to Panera Bread (and we were up way early, too). It was a gorgeous morning. Blueberry bagel:
Nice relaxing morning since we had extra time and were early. Unlike most people, I have to work today and on Memorial Day, but that’s okay. We found a wallet on the side of the road on the way home, too. It had all these credit cards, driver license, and business cards in it, although it was kind of exploded on the side of the road. I called the number in the wallet, apparently it is a police officer, and am waiting to hear back. Person lives in NYC, not sure what the wallet was doing 6 hours north!
It actually was really busy with leftover work. I think a lot of doctors uploaded dictations before leaving for the holiday weekend.
Lunch break and I was feeling undecided. We had an ultra ripe banana, so I just decided to make cream of wheat with that.
Still having a little trouble snacking today. Blueberries, chocolate chips, crackers. Not sure what is wrong with me the last couple days. I certainly have not moved forward in my goal to lose 3 pounds this month. I really struggle with what goal is because I have never really been at goal. My smallest adult weight was actually about 15 pounds heavier than my current weight when I was in my mid 20s. I was told my goal weight then should be 105 pounds. (Can you believe that??). Of course, I never made it there and just went back up. I have bounced around in a 10 pound range for the last couple years, and maybe this is just where I am supposed to be, even if I feel like I should be lower, and certainly look like I could be lower. I am glad that I have maintained it so far, but I don’t know why I can’t officially call it.
Anyhoo, John made pizza for dinner. I piled my pan roasted broccoli on top of it 😀
This was so good. I am a lucky, lucky girl.
Making more soap tonight and a trip for a malt 🙄
Somebody needs to kick my butt for me.
