Saturday morning was gorgeous; it was a crisp & breezy 71 degrees outside. Perfect weather for outside activity. Me and Mr. Man decided to go for a walk in Forest Park. My ankles were hurting pretty bad as soon as we got started. I think it’s because I’ve continued to work out every day at work during lunch, and my body is really starting to feel the effects of all the extra activity. There were tons of joggers everywhere taking advantage of the day made for running. I was so jealous, because my heart wanted to run, but my body said otherwise. I probably should have taken a day off from activity, but I like the positive effects of eating less, journaling my food and daily activity. You know the positive effects like losing weight and feeling better mentally and physically. We were only able to finish about a mile and half, because my ankles just wouldn’t let me do more.
Today, I got up and went to church. After church me and my little sister went to Brunch at an upscale little bistro in the Central West End called Scape. The food was delicious. She’s a “vegetarian” ….well she describes herself as “not eating meat” because she’s not sure how long she can go without it. I think it’s just a teenage phase, but we’ll see. Anyway, she had an apple & brie omelet. I tasted it and it was surprisingly good. I would have never thought in a million years to put fruit in an omelet. I had the spinach & feta cheese omelet with chicken sausage. I ate half and got full, and brought the rest home. After doing a little laundry, I turned on Joel Osteen and got on my elliptical machine. Today, was cold (54 degrees) and rainy, I didn’t feel like leaving the house again. The elliptical had gathered a little dust from the lack of use, but I assume with the weather starting to turning cold, I will use it more. Anyway, I multitasked, and instead of sitting and watching Joel for half an hour, I pedaled for half an hour. I worked up a good sweat. Then, I sat down and wrote this post, and now almost it’s time for Dexter on Showtime. OMG, Dexter is one of my absolute favorite shows. It’s so creepy good. I can’t wait for the season premiere.
