Ah, the dreaded flour. I mostly achieved perfect 5's yesterday: For my 10 minutes of exercise, I lifted weights, did wall push-ups and bridges, and worked my core, then, yes, stretched for 10 more minutes — hand me my trophy now! — all while watching the last half of an episode of The Good Wife, fun! I drank my water faithfully (was done long before bedtime!) and ate well. For dinner I cooked Fiesta Red Soup, a chunky tomato soup with Mexican spices, beans, and a little bacon, and had a big bowl of that along with a bowl of fruit and a dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt.
And . . . a corn muffin baked by Mimosa (secret ingredient: love!), crumbled over my soup. The other option was a fat glop of sour cream, and honestly I thought the corn muffin would be better for me, even though it cost me a point and the sour cream didn't.
And then I went to a committee meeting, and our hostess served yummy-looking appetizers, and I caved and ate 2 chicken spring rolls (they were tiny) and a small goat-cheese-onion round (also tiny) and drank a cup of chai that I'm pretty sure had sugar in it.
And weirdly, last night I had trouble falling asleep, for the first time in a long time. But I was definitely asleep by midnight and got to sleep in till 8, so I got my eight hours. Still. A strange evening!
Score-wise, I'm not the best on my team and I'm not the worst. For a while I was in fact leading, which frankly I found embarrassing. Many of my teammates work outside the home full-time, have to pack or purchase their meals, and travel a lot; I have it much easier. I'm also doing such an easier level. (Mine is called Kickstart, and it is loving and gentle; the other two are Lifestyle and Performance, and good Lord, you can't even have milk in your coffee. Many of our team discussions center around good non-dairy creamers, most of which seem to involve coconut oil. Shoot me now.)
|The devil's weed!!|
Many things on my plate for today. Mimosa and I are going to get new glasses (I need computer-specific glasses, she's just ready for a new pair — has had her current pair for quite a few years now), I have a bunch of errands to run (am getting my teeth cleaned tomorrow, and I always try to do Crest White Strips after a cleaning, so must purchase those — plus, there's a book waiting for me at the library! ).
Tonight we're going to see The Florida Project, which we missed on its first run. In between, I have a church document to write and a math lesson to edit, and, of course, 10 minutes of exercise and 10 minutes of stretching . . .
. . . and my first glass of water sits before me! But first, more coffee.
