I woke up today and was like, “Man I feel good … so much energy … I’m going to get so much DONE today.” Took a few minutes of evaluation about this weird state to remember that I’m on day 4 of my antibiotic and am likely just not SICK. I think I’ve had some kind of sinus infection issue off and on for weeks.
You would think that I would have channeled some of that energy into exercise, but I didn’t. I thought about running – but I just never got around to it. I HAVE to get into some kind of routine and start making it a priority.
I channeled the energy into banging out a 17 page start to a rough draft of a research proposal – and preparing for a stats quiz tomorrow.
I also spent time here and there hugging on and taking selfies with a baby.
We had miniscule amount of snow this morning, which was totally exciting for Molly. She was super impatient on her morning walk, so I let her run laps around the backyard for a while when we got home.
She is definitely designed for the cold weather, but she never complains about coming in.
(Turkey, cheese, spinach, sour cream and salsa. I eat these like a taco.)
I’m not sure if I’ve ever posted this before, but Jon’s child #3 makes this raw cheesecake quite a bit:
My trainer gave me the recipe and I think we’ve probably made it a dozen or so times now for various occasions (uhhh … including for just having on a random weekday): http://www.therawtarian.com/raw-cheesecake-recipe
It is really very fantastic. We’ve made it for a bunch of people – some of whom were determined to hate it – and everyone has always loved it.
(Some sort of butter chicken situation that Jon makes a lot. Whole stick of butter, lots of onion, curry powder, chicken plus rice plus roasted asparagus.)
Somehow we got on the subject of peppermint milkshakes and the next thing I knew this was happening:
So anyway. Good day.
My body is hurting, though. My knees hurt and my back hurts and my joints ache. It’s clearly a lack of exercise. I just can’t seem to get my shit together. My typical routine is off right now (M and W strength training and cardio a couple times a week). I skipped last W and this M night, too. I don’t know what my problem is, but I just can’t get myself on track. I think I’ve got the stress eating under control – and I’m otherwise mostly treating myself well with the sleep and the getting dressed in actual clothes each day and all that.
I’ll get it together. These things happen.
