This has been a rough week for me. I had a some … let’s call it .. “emotional distress” on Monday, and still am working on getting through it. My husband is so understanding and brought me some tulips on Monday night! Ahhh!! I love pretty flowers!
Because of that, my eating the last 2 days hasn’t been that great. I talked with my husband about it, and he helped me realize something. Part of living a “healthy” life, is being healthy in my relationships too. Holding onto things that make me upset is not healthy in any sense of the word. The person who hurt me probably doesn’t even know it! And holding a grudge is only hurting me. Although, just “letting go”, is a lot easier said than done. It is something I am working on!
This song just speaks to me. I know what it is like to have everything change is just in an instant, and because of that I think I am more thankful for the little things. I do try to enjoy every moment I have been given … but sometimes just need a reminder
Boot Camp Update!
I can’t believe it – I am in the 4th week of boot camp already! I have stayed on track with all the workouts. Although I’m not really seeing a big difference in any of my clothes fitting better, I am seeing some muscle definition, and I have lost a few pounds! And more importantly, I am feeling better about myself! I officially started training to run a 10K, and am really enjoying that! There is a 5K right up my street in a few weeks, and I am 99% sure I am going to sign up! Eeekkk! Although I do remember specifically thinking after my last 5K I AM NEVER DOING THIS AGAIN! Ha!
I am really excited. It is my ultimate goal to run a 1/2 marathon someday, so baby steps!
One of my goals yesterday was to get back on track with my eating. I was eating a lot of carbs, and wanted to get some veggies back in my life! Honestly, because my stomach was so messed up, I didn’t eat a lot. On Tuesday, I ended up coming home from work and falling asleep for a good 12 hours! I think it was part depression (I tend to become overly sleepy when I get depressed), and also I was tired of my stomach hurting, so I managed to sleep some of it off. When I got home from work and crawled into bed, Sammy was like .. oh good! Nap time!
This salad is based off a butternut squash salad I have made previously. Unfortunately, I forgot to get butternut squash at the store! It was one of those … I don’t need to write it on my list, I’ll remember! And of course I forgot. Doh!
And I have this to look forward to – planting fresh oregano! I used to have a huge pot of oregano that died
Have a great day!
