Humid and rainy spring day today. A good day to be at the gym and not out riding.
Today I was doing deadlifts. A guy came up to me after a set and said “I love deadlifts. They make me feel like I am going to explode!” Think I will step aside when I see him doing that move 😉 We will file that in the bizarre comment pile I am collecting from the gym.
I found doing the single leg SHELC move in this month’s series is something I can’t do. It caused an alarming feeling in my back when I did the left side alone (which is the side of my herniated disk). I figure just doing the regular double-leg SHELC is good enough. It has to be, I guess. I am so not taking any chances.
I came back home and went old school for breakfast.
Oat bran! I found this box in the back of the cupboard and I really hate to think of how old this box is. I would say about a year old. Did I really just admit that on the internet? No bugs or anything, so it seemed safe
I forgot how hot oatbran stays, so this breakfast had to sit for a while for me to eat it.
I worked busily until lunch and then made up my egg salad.
Perfectly simple lunch.
I thought I would give you a literacy tutoring update since it has changed a bit. I am now going to be working with a new learner. The one that I had just wasn’t working out. He would skip meetings and not call me and in all the months I have worked with him, he was on time once. Most times he was 15 minutes late (this, with me being a very punctual person, drove me completely insane). Then he was not doing all of his assigned work, so lessons were just me trying to pull him along since November of last year. It’s just not fair to me or to a person that really wants to work who is waiting for a tutor. After talking with the coordinator and having him do a no-show on Monday, we are getting a new learner for me. My old one will have to call and get in the back of the line for another tutor if he wants one. I feel kind of bad, but very relieved at the same time. I am not sure when I will meet my new learner, but she is already assigned to me as of today.
Even though it was hot and humid, I still had a hot latte.
And a snack of some tortilla chips (gym hunger).
I had the most productive day at work today and got in extra lines by the time dinner rolled around I and could knock off for the day. I was in the mood for stir fry – so I came up with a combo of broccoli sauteed in coconut oil, then I threw in some raw shrimp with orange ginger sauce (LaChoy). Fresh pineapple tossed in at the very end and voila:
Pretty fresh and tasty, I have to say. 5 ingredient dinner.
Pixie has been sleeping so much since it got warmer. I didn’t think it was really possible for her to sleep even more, but she seems to be doing it. Here she is laying on my flower catalog (I am just looking, not buying, I swear).
This heat has also brought out one of my irises. I couldn’t wait until Friday for the What’s Blooming to show it off!
Eeeeeee!!!! This is Boysenberry Buttercup. It’s a huge bloom, too! We really need to move so I can have more yard to garden in.
