I have been sick with a cold for 5 days now. Silly me still trying to workout and not take it easy. Yesterday was my worst day, yet I somehow got 21,000 steps for the day.
I was supposed to drive 2.5 hours away this morning. I just knew I was in no shape to do that alone and then turn around and do it again. So last night I called in sick and lounged and I feel 10x better. I started making chicken noodle soup this morning, always a 2-3 hours process, I used Scott's Grandma's recipe. Then I looked in my book for bread to eat it with. Immediately Roasted GARLIC (great for sickness) potato bread popped out and there I started making that.
I spent most of the day watching this amazing show I discovered on netflix. Well first off I heard this new show on ABC was coming out called Resurrection. I also heard an interview on NPR with the author. He said the premise is based on a dream he had about his mother coming to visit years after she died and they sat down and talked and it seemed so real. I keep having dreams like this, where my dad comes back and it's like he doesn't even have a clue he left. So anyway Resurrection came on ABC on Sunday and YUCK so hokey! A feel good ABC kind of show, even the name makes me more of Jesus' resurrecting and that's really not what the book was about. Anyway so I checked out the French version on Netflix that aired in 2012 and OMG it's soooooo good! Creepy and dark and I love it and I am not a huge fan of subtitles. I had problems falling asleep last night after watching it before bed.
Sunday my mom called me while in the city I live in! She made it in all by herself to go to an antique show, pretty damn cool that is she finally figuring out how to get around alone! So she called me before she was heading home to tell me she was heading home lol She didn't really wanna come over to my house cuz she didn't wanna push her luck. I ran out of the house to feed my pet sitting kitties and came back and my mom was here lol We had a nice time, I took her to the graveyard with the dogs and we walked and took her out for ice cream. It was a nice visit.

As I was falling asleep last night, I found this story in my FB feed.
This girl was diagnosed with MS three years ago and she is headed to nationals in track. She is fine until she starts running and then her legs go numb. So her coach is at the finish line ready to catch her cuz she will fall when she stops. Pretty inspirational her story and how her coaches are supporting her as long as they can.
I have been sick all weekend, coughing up a storm. I feel ok, not 100% but better than I sound. I managed to hit a dance class yesterday and then round out my 10k steps on the exercise bike before 9 am. I got a lot of walking in yesterday as well. Went to uptown normal and parked and walked all over visiting old places. Then took the dogs for a long walk. It's funny the things you see when you walk a lot. I saw this woman drive by me yesterday followed by a cop stopping her. Cuz her mirror was hanging. (I heard all this just while walking by) He told her she needed to cut the mirror off and then she would be legal for the time being, it was a warning. Then he asked for insurance, then she got irritate, I DON'T HAVE INSURANCE ON ME NOW! Man can you imagine a job where ppl are just running on adrenaline ready to yell a you as soon as they see you. I walked around the block and down a few blocks and circled back and she was just then pulling away. So what could have been a nice fast warning turned into more. So yeah I got 19k steps
This is gonna sound bad but I am kind of upset that my water aerobics has been so full lately. Suddenly all these new ppl are coming and they don't talk. I mean like 15-18 people are coming now when it used to be like 4-10. So I have been kind of avoiding it. Hoping they learn to talk or go away lol I go to a lot of fitness classes that you can't talk in but water aerobics isnt one of them. Now it's like all business and no fun, watch the clock, it's going slow! Not sure why the gym is suddenly so busy in March, the new years resolution folks are usually about gone by now. We had an LA fitness open so maybe Gold's promoting more to pump up business. I donno I just want my water class back. Speaking of which water teacher/lifting buddy is now finally teaching WERQ! She has been co-teaching with 3 different teachers. Two of them, we have been going to years. The other one who has the class she are taking over in a few weeks, she is not really our style. My friend has been certified to teach for over a yr and she's been scared so this is big that she finally got the courage. So she had to co-teach with the 'not our style' one and she stopped the music in the middle to yell at her infront of the whole class that was doing it wrong. This woman teaches like a robot. The other ones we like actually look like they are dancing, this one looks like she programmed the song into her head with a computer chip. I hate when ppl have to wave their power around especially infront of a whole class, really?
Ok one more NPR article, I had no idea that Avicii didn't sing at all. What is up with music now. You don't need a good voice because machines can do that for u. Now you get your name on stuff and don't even sing it. Hopefully Aloe Blacc's name gets more well known since we hear it all the time.
Have a good rest of your weekend guys!

Yeah that sounds obsessive. I went yesterday morning to dance out the sweat. Then I went back that evening to lift with my friend. I also took my munchkins to the graveyard to walk.
I love how excited they are just to get in the car. Even though we just just drove a quarter of a mile away it was pretty exciting for them. Calories were a bit over yesterday. Of course after my dance class I was starving all day as usual. I made a pot roast that turned out well.
For some reason cats keep coming into my life and exiting. My friend from college got this kitten like 7 years ago when she was single. She loves this cat. So she has been living with this guy 3 yrs and he hates the cat always talks about making her get rid of her. Ughhhh I hate that guy! They have 2 dogs, yet he hates the cat? I don't even really know how you can hate a cat, they are hardly there when they are there lol So HE just bought a condo and HE will not allow the cat to come to HIS condo. My friend was like "I think if I cry to my parents then they will take her in". Are you kidding me? Told her if it was up to Elliott going to humane society please tell me cuz I will take her in and find her a home. She said her aunt offered to take her if her parents wont and she would break up with him if humane society was Elliott's only option, thank god (some rationality)! Why would this not be a huge red flag? He isn't allergic to the cat, the cat isn't doing anything wrong. Ughhhh why do women stay with men like this, there's a whole list of other stuff I could beat him up for. I would never be with someone who didn't love animals as much as I do, NEVER! Being single sounds like a better idea.
Then Mauri called me last night all upset about Emily. Even after going to the vet she still keeps shrinking and isnt eating. I told her to get some pedialite. My old cat was on meds to make her hungry and I donno if I would do that again. Mauri felt really bad about taking her in to be put down and I said you don't have to do that. Let her pass at home if you want to. My dad never put any of his pets down like ever. She is 17 for godsake, she has lived a nice long life. She lived a long healthy life. Maybe Elliott will be Mauri's next cat lol
I feel sickness looming, some kind of a cold. I got a little bit of a cough and feeling like trash. Taking my vitamin C, echancia and swallowing cloves of garlic. I will fight you off sickness!

I have been regularly waking up at 4:30 lately. I can usually go back to bed but I figured it was a good sign to hit the gym. So I am already sitting 8k steps for the day from shaking it. This week has been good, been eating less, staying under 1800 calories even! Seeing the forecast and knowing we are getting a few days in the 50's is just a good mood lifter! I am so ready for long dog walks with my podcasts again! Come in spring, we want you, we love you!!!
I have been making a big effort to cut down on my coffee and cut out my fake creamers lately. For the past 5-6 years every morning I pour 2.5 cups of coffee cover coffee mate and then ice it. Maybe I can still do it once a week. It's just such chemical crap in those creamers. Hah so is ice cream, but then again I don't eat ice cream every morning. So ya 1.5 cups of coffee black is what I am doing! I started it cuz when you drink 3 cups of coffee then get in the car and have no idea where to go to the bathroom is kinda crappy. So now I just figured good to continue 1/2 the amount of liquid in the AM. I can drink it later. New habits are good!
Edit: Found a homemade powdered creamer from natural ingredients and I happen to have everything in my house to try this!
Edit X2: I made it, it worked!! Thanks for the idea Danielle!
Our cat Joel has been bringing his friend to the door lately. Everytime I let Joel in, his friend is standing behind him like "me too?". He doesn't look thin, looks like someone is taking care of him. He looks pretty young as well. I deem his name Dale! My dogs hate the idea of any cat in the house besides our own. So when they see him, they start going crazy.
Here is my semi light winter coat I got the other day.
Have a good day you guys!
