Weekend activities: On Saturday, Venus and I went thrift shopping (2 skirts, 2 sweaters, 2 shirts, and a trench coat; can't wait to wash it all!), wandered around Central Sq, checked out the sex shop there (a bit disappointing, not much in it), and read. I re-discovered how goddamn comfortable my recliner is. We had dinner out with a couple of friends in Harvard Square, which totally meshed with our girly day. Sunday, we read in the morning, visited a smoke shop in Harvard Square (she wanted tobacco for her hookah), and wandered around Mt Auburn Cemetery. Beautiful place. I'll probably put pictures up on my Flickr account soon. I put polyurethane on the lower kitchen cabinets at the new apartment (will finish tonight) & brought over some things. I have a key to the back door now so I can start lugging stuff over. I spoke to Hulky on the phone last night. 1 week down, 2 to go.
Weekend food: I'd say 90/10 primal, to account for cooking oils when we ate out. Saturday was sausage & eggs in the morning, avocado chicken salad at a Mexican restaurant for lunch, bunless burger and a few potato chips at dinner. I had some chicken soup between lunch & dinner as I was feeling kind of wiped out. Sunday was sausage & eggs, a spinach salad w/ goat cheese, candied walnuts, and some other things plus a smoothie, and we made stuffed acorn squash for dinner. I have 1/2 a squash for my lunch today and honestly might eat the other 1/2 for dinner. The stuffed squash should be SCD compliant, actually, though I don't think I should introduce onions yet. Back to mostly soup tonight or tomorrow.
Gut: Definitely feeling the swing of IBS-C/D lately. I had some "attacks" on Saturday. I think it might have been too much magnesium, actually. I'm taking no more than 400 mg a day now, one at dinner and one before bed, to see what happens from there.
So, we did a lot of walking this weekend! After my run on Friday morning, my legs were pretty tired on Saturday, then we walked a ton, so they were tired on Sunday as well. I ran again this morning and was incredibly slow. It was easier and harder at the same time. Apparently, I misread the Couch to 5k calendar so I'm already doing week 2's paces (was supposed to be 60:90 run:walk intervals, I'm doing 90:120 run:walk). Not sure if I'll stick with this for longer or advance to week 3 on Friday, which is two intervals of jog 90 sec, walk 90 sec, jog 3 min, walk 3 min.
Overall, body and mind, I feel pretty good. I have to figure out moving stuff this week, including getting our couch either out on the curb or gone via Craigslist. Wish me luck!
