So. Thought you’d all enjoy a laugh at my expense. Guess what was in the breakroom the day after I posted my lofty thoughts about choosing the best food to eat? YES. Mini Milky Way Bars. YES, darn it. I ate two of them…
Other than that, things are hunky dory around here. On Sunday, my weight was up 2 pounds over my goal weight, and today my weight was 1 pound less than my goal weight. I am really getting a lot of regular exercise in. When I go to the gym regularly, I can increase the weights periodically to continue to challenge myself. It is fun to see progress. Of course the doggie walks continue–long in the morning with Noah, and a shorter one in the afternoon with all three dogs. The other day I was so proud of Monk. I was in the mood to walk a little longer in the afternoon walk, and we went for two miles. He was a real trouper. Here’s some pics of the dogs after that walk:
So, what else? Sometimes, no all the time, on a day after work, I am tired and a little cranky, and Noah is a little more enthusiastic, and has a LOT more energy. Its not always pretty. Today I was overheard to yell at Noah, “You’re not in charge of the world!” To which God whispered to ME, “Ditto.” Okay. I did sort of laugh at myself when those words came out of my mouth.
Here’s my new tennies:
Here’s a little primer on making your own salad dressing. Choose your ingredients. For a single serving of salad I usually use about 1 teaspoon each of mustard, olive oil, honey, and balsamic (or other) vinegar. Put in the bottom of the bowl you plan to have your salad in and mix well. (That is some homemade mustard from a farmstand. It is fabulous.)
Then add your greens and mix to coat evenly. Add toppings and enjoy!
That’s all I’ve got for today. I’m going to follow Michelle’s advice, and unplug a little tonight. I have to work again tomorrow. And then THE BIRTHDAY SEASON BEGINS!!!
