Finally, that cold/sinus infection that has ruined my days for weeks seems to be leaving!
Why I felt crappy yesterday had nothing to do with that, and I did not know what was wrong until today. Friday night, we were out shopping at the hardware store getting stuff we needed to repair a leak and other items around the house. Hungry, we walked across the parking lot to Taco Bell. I have not eaten there in months because I have learned on SP that even their fresca options are not wonderful. But - we were hungry and tired. Taco Bell advertised Pacific Shrimp tacos and burritos. I had the taco and it tasted ok.
Yesterday, we had to go back and exchange some of the hardware items. We ran into some friends and went to Taco Bell with them. I had the shrimp burrito last night. It did not taste quite as good, but I didn't think about it much.
Then, this morning. It was as if I were preparing for another colonoscopy! Just a horrible morning! No more Taco Bell for me! We have not been eating any kind of fast food (except Subway) for months and this was a lesson!
Once things turned around, I went in to work for a few hours. My top attorney sent me home after a couple of hours. Turns out she will be on a business trip for most of the week, so I have more time to work on her project than I thought.
That gave me more time to do the grocery shopping. We always shop at a discount grocery store, the kind of place where you buy it when you see it and there is an element of adventure because you never know what you will find there. We found a bread maker! I have been wanting one for several years. Now that good bread costs more than $4 a loaf, we're going to make our own!
I read an SP article today that shows me I have been doing things wrong for over a year. I should not be recording my mileage from my pedometer for the incremental walking, that I should record only the cardio that I do. I would have almost no exercise minutes at that rate. Not sure what to do with that...
