For those of you wondering, yes, I did do the elliptical on Sunday morning. I originally planned on 30 minutes which turned into 3 miles which turned into 3.5 miles (42) minutes. I definitely felt good while I was on it, but somehow I don't think it agrees with my back/butt. Later in the day they were a little sore but by bedtime I felt fine. This morning and most of today, they've been sore. Not sure if it was caused by the elliptical or because I slept funny (I woke up with a cat on my chest and I was kind of in a weird position). My plan is to rest today and maybe walk tomorrow. If I'm feeling good on Wednesday, I may try running. My back may just prefer it. It's different muscles and not a twisting motion like the elliptical.
Yesterday morning we took Malika in for her rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. Unfortunately, she also had some worms...maybe picked up in the garage. We don't let her out of the house otherwise. She was not a very happy kitty when she got home but is doing fine now.
We decided to go to House of Falafel for lunch. I had my usual, the falafel plate. We also got some fries (not pictured).
I only had 3 falafel balls and my husband had the rest.
I baked some superdoodles (snickerdoodles with cinnamon chips). Some I kept as is to give to some of my dialysis guys. The rest, I added chocolate chips to for a cinnamon and chocolate cookie extravaganza. We tasted them last night...yum!!
Another busy, cold day at work. At least I did not need to go into the cold room. It seems the hotter it is outside, the colder it is inside the hospital. Crazy!
I finally tried out my Cricut cake with some frosting sheets that they sell. I still need some practice but at least I've got an idea of how to use it. The sheets are very fragile, so I tore some of the edges accidentally. I'm hoping to get some good designs to put on a cake this weekend.
Tonight's dinner is a rehash of last Tuesday. Trader Joe's jalapeno chicken sausages and Alexia sweet potato fries. Maybe another veggie. I'll ask my husband when he gets home.
