Foot feels pretty good today. I hope that continues. 4 miles are scheduled for today's run. It is hot and muggy out. Supposed to be 85 degrees when I run, with a high of 89 today. NOT looking forward to it, to be honest.
Brad is headed to Prairie du Chien, WI right now to look at boats and possibly buy one today. Yes, I know... he just sold his boat, right? Same thing everyone else has been reminding him of - and then promptly reminding him that I told him NOT to sell it. This time, if he buys a boat, he will NOT be allowed to sell it, under ANY circumstances, unless he is trading it for another boat. Same goes for the 4 wheeler. No more buying and then selling 4 wheelers unless he is trading it in for a newer one.
Up 5 pounds today. Had parmesan cheese, butter and sour cream last night as part of a recipe. Leftovers to follow today. So far, no digestive upset, but a 3 lb gain overnight definitely says something, doesn't it? Water retention, inflammation... something. The only non-whole30 item I've been consuming this week is dairy, so it's got to be the dairy that's causing the issue. It's frustrating.
SIL sent me a message yesterday saying that she's been struggling and as a result is going back to Whole30 on Monday. I will be joining her. I will make chicken cordon bleu casserole tonight so that Brad has a chance to eat his three favorite dairy containing recipes before I eliminate the dairy again.
Also found myself wanting to raid a candy bowl this morning. There is a gal who keeps Starburst jelly beans on her desk. They're delicious in a HFCS kind of way. My mouth watered for them. I didn't have any, but it was troublesome to me. Leads me to believe that without Whole30 starting again Monday, I'd likely find myself with my hand in her bowl... but then again, I hadn't eaten breakfast yet so maybe I was just hungry and my mind was looking for any consumable, quality or not.
Update on the Office Hottie and his "legal" issues... the General STILL has not made a decision regarding whether or not the CPT's letter of reprimand will be filed locally or permanently. Remember, if its filed locally, his career goes on. If it's filed permanently, he'll never get past the rank of Major (he's already promotable and made the promotion list) and his career will effectively be over in 5 short years. He has to report to Language school on the 15th of July... that leaves 3 weeks for his orders to be cut, household goods to be taken care of (to include having the movers pack up his stuff), and to find a place in Monterey to live for a year. This totally sucks. It could easily take another week just to get his orders cut, which will REALLY crunch things... Poor guy.
Shoulders and chest are really feeling the bench presses yesterday... OY!
