Still not feeling great and still having a hard time staying out of the sugar. Wah!
We had an office wide meeting today, from 11 – 12:00 and then they were bringing in pizza for lunch. The pizza ended up being really late arriving and I was starving for some reason. There were 3 different kinds of cookies and a bunch of other treats for the meeting, so I ended up having a molasses cookie.
I can’t remember the last time I had a molasses cookie – it was pretty good. Finally the pizza arrived and I went with my usual choice – the ham & pineapple.
Yes, that’s three pieces but the were skinny slices.
That kept me full for the afternoon though.
Last cruise ship of the season was in port today – the Queen Mary 2; I didn’t even realize it was here until we were heading home from work. Normally when there’s a ship in you see tourists everywhere, but I guess it’s too cold for that now. Poor tourists! Hopefully their other stops will be warmer (I have no idea what the route is).
I did get out for a short break around 2 pm, but for some reason I was squirming in my seat all afternoon. I wish our office was bigger so that I could walk around and stretch my legs when that happens. There’s really no where to go; I end up going to the bathroom every hour (or more) just to move my legs.
It was 6:00 before Husband was ready to head home. I was very happy that we had leftovers for supper and didn’t need to worry about cooking.
I walked in the door, fed the cats (that’s always the first thing I do), changed into my workout clothes. Then, I confess, I ate two Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Then I hit the treadmill to do my intervals. I’m still alternating walking and running, and the running is still feeling great with the gel insoles in my sneakers. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.
After my cardio session, I went up to the kitchen and started some rice in the rice cooker. While I waited for that, I prepped some carrots, celery, onion & garlic in anticipation of using the slow cooker tomorrow.
I had wanted to pull out the slow cooker last week, and that first night that we were late getting home, and were in the kitchen cooking soup & stir-fry, I was really cranky thinking to myself that if we had done what I wanted to do supper would have been ready. So this week I’m sticking to my guns. :)
So supper is not very exciting – a repeat of last night.
And after supper I had a bit more sugar.
I think next week I may have to reinstate the sugar ban.
I will say that I felt better after my cardio session than I have in days. Maybe that’s what I needed.
Tomorrow…The return of the slow cooker!
