Gotta love fat. No, seriously!
I sort of floated through today. Mindless eating didn’t put me completely off my game, although my carbs are a little higher than I would like- mainly due to the fact that I was definitely not careful about dairy today.
I am getting frustrated, wanting to exercise. My chiropractic appointment today did not go well. My left shoulder is TWEAKED. My chiro asked me if I could get anyone else to drive to Carmel this weekend. Considering that sis just called, and her car is on the fritz, it’s all me. So she (my doc) won’t clear me for weights or hopping around (Zumba) Pushups? No. Pullups (which for me would be just hanging there) definitely no. Hey, the lady has a background in sports medicine. I’m cleared for…walking. *sigh* Simplefit and shovelglove will have to wait. Since I feel like I am going to need training wheels for each of them anyway, I just want to get on board.
Did some light gardening today. Plants are looking gorgeous, I have a Yellow squash , Ambassador squash, and a few Black Beauty zucchini’s blossoming in their containers. Strawberries are very happy too. I ended up getting more tomatoes from the garden center, as well as Armenian cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, a purple bell pepper plant, and some additional strawberry seedlings. My favorite purchase- a nice sproingy hose that connects to the sink, and an adaptor for said hose, so I can water my plants without toting all that water back and forth. If it was just three or four, that would be cool, but at this point, I have a whole garden on the deck. I am going to have to figure out someone to water and take care of things when we leave for our trip in July. Here are pics of some of my (hopefully bountiful) produce:
Also- really happy, I finally got my sliced roast into the marinade, which means that delicious beef jerky will soon be mine! Mmmmmm, jerky. I sweetened it with the pineapple puree that I made and froze last week, so I have two bags waiting in the freezer for the next batch.
Tomorrow is work, get home, do laundry, run errands, and drive into SF to pick up sis (AT 5 PM- YUCK) and then head over to Carmel for Mother’s Day. Hopefully it will be nice and relaxing! Although…eating with family around is generally a hassle. I am already plotting what I will bring to eat in case things go south. Gluten-free pasta isn’t my idea of a compromise, unfortunately! I am thinking of pre-slicing some organic zucchini I have kicking around and making "zoodles".
