At my last back adjustment, I was given the, “you will most likely be able to run after this week”. That means this week. I was told that I could walk all I wanted.
Poor transition: Last week was silly. I’m not quite sure why it was so trying and I feel kind of guilty about moaning and groaning about it since I can’t pinpoint what my deal was. Nevertheless, when the weekend hit, I was all, “No people or real pants allowed”. I stuck to this.
HOWEVER, I did walk this weekend!! Wahoo! Sunday I even went outside! I gave up my mole-person status for about an hour and high tailed it around my neighborhood. Since I will be able to run soon, I figured getting outside was a good idea. Not to mention it was about 40* and there was some sun. It was great.
The walk went pretty well. My legs don’t remember things like hills and slanted sidewalks so it was a good reminder. I haven’t walked or ran outside (for exercise) since Nov. and I’ve missed it. Funny thing, I’ve said before that I’m not a person who LOVES to exercise. But when I started up again in Jan after being sick for forever, I really appreciated it. Sure, I put it off but it felt good to be active. Now, I am eagerly anticipating getting back to running. Of course it helps that spring is springing but I also feel the urge to train again. It’s been some time since I felt this way and it’s a great feeling.
Other than soaking up the vitamin D on Sunday, things around these parts have been busy. I kind of feel as though I’m behind and what should be a catch up week (it’s spring break here) is now suddenly packed to the gills. The silver lining? Next Friday I’m leaving for a work trip to New Orleans! I’ve never been there. I will be eating so much! Oh and of course doing work things. That’s probably important.
Last on this list of this very discombobulated (spell check doesn’t like this word so it is probably spelled incorrectly) post, is I made the cottage pie this past weekend. I’m not kidding when I say that on Sunday I did NOT want to spend the time to cut the veggies, steam the squash, brown the meat and then cook all of this. To be honest, it was a bit labor intensive (by my standards of lazy cooking) but it turned out to be so worth it. I need to adjust my seasonings for the next time around as I frankensteined a couple of different recipes to accommodate my little brat of a stomach and it seems to be missing… something… I still don’t know what. The bacon really shines though and I might just add more on top of the leftovers – you know, as a garnish! I also added some other veggies and some potatoes so I should have considered this when spicing this puppy up. Again, it is good and makes great leftovers.
Okay, over and out. Today I’m working late and hoping I can hop on the tready when I get home later tonight. I’ll see how I’m holding up from this long day.
Do you mix up a variety of recipes? How do you adjust spices? I need advice!
