Yesterday: Trader Joe’s and laundry
Today: Museum volunteer training and the bus
I had every intention of posting yesterday afternoon but once I put it off till after dinner there was no chance. After dinner I just feel like blasting through the dishes, fixing Lee’s lunch for the next day, and then getting is as much couch-cuddling as i can before we both conk out. So here goes yesterday’s lunch:
green salad w/ seaweed and cottage cheese (sounds weird but it was surprisingly good)
under-ripe plum, waffle w/ coconut butter+cinnamon, milk, and whole wheat tortilla w/ CB
I love love love coconut butter and cinnamon. In fact, if I hadn’t just eaten it for lunch and I’d thought of it in time, I might have put that combination on my sweet potato for dinner!
baked sweet potato, roasted broccoli, carrots + fennel, a poached egg and some tofu avocado cream
And now, for the brilliant start to my busy today:
2 shredded wheat biscuits, banana, pumpkin, cottage cheese, kefir, PPie spice, granola, and coffee
I ate this in as little of a hurry as I could manage considering I had about half an hour to eat breakfast, make lunch, and get ready to get on a bus to Golden Gate Park. I was coming from a gym session that didn’t leave me too exhausted, so that was good. My legs were really tired on the treadmill this morning, though.
weight workout: 10 minutes warm up run on treadmill, triceps, dips, shoulders, pull-downs, inner thighs, abs.
My weight progress: 3 pounds to gain till I’m gonna ease myself back into running!
I’m not sure how much I’ve gained since I started this blog. Lee knows so I’ll have to ask him. I think it’s something like 5 pounds. I still need and want to gain more after these next 3 pounds but this is the threshold that Lee set for me to run again. It may be kind of arbitrary. I guess after 3 pounds I will have gained back the weight I lose in recent months due to crazy thyroid stuff and over exercising. We’ll see. Maybe I won’t feel ready to run again.
Tonight could be very stressful and emotional or it could be great. Lee and I are returning to the house we saw over the weekend and liked a lot. At this point, we are trying to decide between the short sale on which we have an offer pending and a more expensive house of the same size (but without a yard) in a much, much closer to the city action location. The pros and cons are many for both houses and I’m about ready to tear my hair out in frustration over this dilemma. More on that to come. We are going out to dinner in the prospective house’s neighborhood afterwards so that should be fun.
