I’m having some serious weird thoughts in my head, but I dealt with them by first taking a nap, and not eating copious amounts of sugar upon waking, then when jazzercise was over and I didn’t feel like I worked out enough of whatever is in my head anymore, I came home and did some sprint/walk intervals in my neighborhood and now I’m exhausted and don’t feel so emotionally high strung.

I’m still alive!!

The last week+ I was SUPER busy at work, like sometimes working 12+ hour days and on my feet a lot and moving lots of boxes of books. Unfortunately I didn’t go to jazzercise for about a week and I really missed it.

The good news is, I went back this morning! And got an awesome workout. I plan to go every day the rest of this week.

This whole “seven year itch” thing - it seems to be a thing. That I’m dealing with right now. I haven’t been married seven years, but we’ve been together almost eight. It’s just getting more difficult. Now I am starting to see why people say marriage is hard.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Another fine procrastination lunch: salmon patty and quinoa chickpea salad with cumin/lemon/evoo dressing.

So, usually it’s such a habit to work out every day (still jazzercise lately) that I will take a rest day after realizing that it’s been 5-6 consecutive days.

Well.

I haven’t worked out since SATURDAY! 

I’ve also been having little pity parties for myself.

Time to get to jazzercise… leaving now.

I poached salmon for lunch. Mmm it is so good that way. I didn’t even eat anything else…just a plateful of salmon.

I went to Costco to return something (a lousy $19.99 cooler that was already ripping after a couple uses), and I decided to “just go in for a case of peaches” (I can’t resist in the summer…. the Costco peaches are so good).

Well, I ended up with:

  • Wild caught salmon (poached for lunch tomorrow, then going to make some delicious salmon cakes with the leftovers)
  • Wild caught walleye (grilled tonight)
  • Avocados
  • Sliced, pre-cooked, ready to eat beef (ingredients: beef, salt, pepper)
  • Strawberries
  • Pork loin
  • And…. because I just love them… the Jimmy Dean egg white & turkey sausage english muffin breakfast sandwiches.

I felt pretty proud of that grocery haul… and even the “bad” (processed) item I got wasn’t really THAT bad, all things considered…

Nice little lunch. 2 oz turkey wrapped around 1/4 avocado (two slices). And a bowl of veggie soup with 1/2 cup pasta.

Normally I eat lots more but we’re going out to eat later so I wanted to try to skimp a little where I could…

I’m going to try to make a tahini salad dressing tonight.

I’ve seen this before… It makes me laugh/sad at the same time…
