This morning I had to get in another early start to exercise. Being a Thursday, it is a cardio day for me. I planned on getting out the door by myself since my husband is still on vacation. I tried so hard to get out but my little dog pushed his way out the door and was not letting me leave under any circumstances!
So my little man and I went for a slow run/walk three-mile run. It was probably for the best that he slowed me down since my knee hurt from volleyball last night. We only had five people and coverage was thin. I dove instinctively for the ball (thankfully wearing knee pads) and did not even consider my bad knee which is the one I went down on. It’s not awful but sore today.
So my workout was nice but chilly! Fourty degrees and windy. Dressed in my shorts and a thin jacket I was cold! I also have Reynaud’s so my fingers freeze if it is below 5o degrees. I forgot my gloves too! I came home and took a hot shower and ate a hot bowl of oatmeal.
Oatmeal Today: Plain oats topped with banana chunks, chopped dates, pecans, millet and flax seeds.
Now I had to get ready for the unpleasant part. My daughters three-year-old check-up.
She is super sensitive when it comes to going to the doctor (we are due to try the dentist soon and I am not going to think about that yet!). We read books about it, play with her doctor kit, talk about check-ups and so on, but it never fails when it is time to go to the doctor it is a huge ordeal! When we hit the parking lot she starts crying and it comes and goes in bursts untill we leave.
We finally finished up at the doctors (She is a healthy girl! I am so happy my husband was home to go with me. I did plan it that way. :)) and went for lunch. I did not plan on eating out so I did not have my camera. We were all hungry after the appointment since we had to wait 40+ minutes to get in to see the doctor. All that waiting just adds to her anxiety. So off to the coney that we like we went.
I had a salmon burger with some sweet potato fries. I love that they do not salt the fries. I am not a salty person. I don’t have a picture of the burger but here are the left over fries that came home with me.
They are great re-heated in the convection/toaster oven!
That’s my eats so far. I am looking for my mediterainan meal tonight!
I hope you have a great day!
