Hit the mall for another luggage pursuit. Spent far too long comparing things, and eventually left nearly 3 hours later with 2 nice bags at 65% discount. Happy with my purchases. I'll be packing in a week for Sweden. Still surprised and pleased that this work trip fell into my lap unexpectedly. Must review that presentation I have to do next week. At least it's short...
Thought I'd hit the grocery stores today, but by the time I was done at the mall, which was rapidly filling up with moms and preteen/teen back to school shoppers, I was done. Had not eaten before heading out, as last night's meal was rather heavy (and oh, so good), so figured an IF was appropriate. Broke the fast between 3 and 4pm with a cider, few bites of smoked rainbow trout, and a small bit of garlic sausage.
Tonight's meal will be lighter, salmon fillets on top of salad. I've managed to perfect the technique of panfrying with crispy browned skin, and love it like that. It's even convinced hubby that fish skin is in fact edible. And tasty. I'm thinking there should be lots of decent fresh local seafood on the menu for Sweden, looking forward to that. The city I'll be in is coastal, so even more so, perhaps.
Feeling kind of blah that there's only 2 more days off work, but should try to shift that thought to "hey, I have 2 more days off and the weather is fabulous". Working on that. Haven't got nearly as much done around home as I had planned, but that shouldn't be too surprising. I just need a day of motivation and I can get a lot done in a short span. Anyone seen any misdirected motivation around somewhere?? Send it my way.
I tweaked my right shoulder a tad last crossfit class on the overhead lifts. Annoying. Hopefully it's feeling a bit better by Monday. And the knee is still a bit tight, probably overdid it a bit on the deep squatting. Hard for me to set my own limits sometimes, when I want to keep up with the rest of the group and not be that middle aged gal who can't keep up. I want to kick ass! I do see a bit of increased upper body definition since starting this onramp 3 weeks ago, in the shoulders and upper arms. I like that. Weight holding pretty much steady, but seems firmer around the middle as well.
Found out that my knee MRI is booked for 4 1/2 months from now. Sad. And not impressed with the timing: Saturday Dec 28th at 9 pm. Seriously?? I will take it, as that's what it is, but really? Ah well. Probably will be a couple of months past that for the ortho surgeon consult. Egads.
