Happy Friday! I had a good little swim at class last night, and then went back for another mile this morning.
I didn't want to. Murphy had a hold of me.
I got up after a night of tossing and turning. I seriously had to use the restroom FIVE times in the night. ??? The 4:40 alarm was just way to early - then I realized that I had laid out my swim suit, but no clothes. Went in and found some in the dark. Then I got out to the car and poured my hot coffee in my lap. I didn't realize we needed fuel in the car last night, so I had to stop and get that.
And I came home to a left over home made biscuit which just begged me to fry and egg and top it with cheese. Oh lordy - recovery food at it's best! Of the things that I've learned to make myself, biscuits and cinnamon rolls are probably one of my greatest triumphs.
I do see a theme to my workouts this week. If I waited for conditions to be perfect, I would never get my workouts done.
Speaking of cooking triumphs, I have a new one for ya. The newest quick/easy/cheap meal that my kids are loving for lunch involves these three simple ingredients.
I make at least 6 servings when I cook, so adjust this recipe as needed.
16oz package chopped broccoli (frozen)
Bring water, butter and salt to a boil. Add rice and broccoli, lower heat to low and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Brilliant. Actually made it twice this week. My kids like a little soy sauce on it - the second day was a slice of cheese.
And then there's Cameron Allen, age 2yrs 10mo.
We started on the "Potty Train" and had some really super good days. If you've ever potty trained a kid, you know that really smelly/disgusting messes come with the territory. Yes, well, this guy decided that his bowel wasn't going to be undersold this week. He made some world class messes including:
- Dumping all of the cleaning and health additives in to his older brothers 30gal fish tank.
- Feasting on a tube of toothpaste
- Using one of his older sisters bottles of body wash as lotion...and floor cleaner...
I'm starting to rethink the exclusion of non-essential calories in my diet. They may be essential after all. TO MY SANITY.
Seven mile run tomorrow morning, then a trip to my stylist for a good whacking. Ahh...things are looking up already! Have a great weekend. :)
