Today I did:
I ate a Nutrigrain Bar - apple flavour - while doing my warm up before my walk. I've finally found something I can eat first thing that doesn't make me nauseous. :-) I'm not good at eating for the first hour or so after I get up, but as the dizzies can sometimes be related to lack of food, I'm trying to eat a little something before I go out. I took a bar with me on my walk yesterday, but with the sinuses forcing me to breathe through my mouth a lot, I was finding that the crumbs were making me cough. So, it was back to trying to eat before I go out. I had tried to wait until after breakfast to go for my walk, but then found that the rest of my day was affected, as I couldn't seem to get going any quicker, and I still didn't want breakfast until more than an hour after I had got up.
I never liked Nutrigrain bars before now, and they don't have a great deal to recommend them, but they have a little fruit in, aren't high in calories or fat, and are soft to chew on, which makes them minimal effort first thing. Tara is highly amused that Mum is suddenly eating them, after saying so many times how awful they are. *grin* I am now a walking example to her of how our tastes change, and that this is why it is a good idea to try things we used not to like, because we sometimes change our minds, and that is ok. :-)
Sorry Folks... slipped into 'Mummy Mode' there for a moment. Normal service has now been resumed. :-)
52-Week Walking Plan
Week 6, Day 3
15 minute walk
I somehow missed one of the clicks when setting the timer on my mobile for the halfway point. I got as far as the bridge which is my usual turning point, got all the way over, then delved into my bag for my mobile to see how many seconds I had left, and it wasn't running. *oookkkaaayyy* So, I switched it off, locked the phone, and turned back, figuring I had probably done about half the time anyway, and the alarm went off just before I reached the house! Yup... after failing to start it, I then equally failed to switch it off. *grin*
I had my usual breakfast - porridge and cooked apple on top, and then did twenty minutes on Tigger to complete my cardio today. That always puts a smile on my face. :-)
I gave Roo a few minutes attention too, though I am trying to save him for lower body workout days. Now that I have a much bigger step, it is a whole new workout. :-)
I just did the Day 3 Bootcamp Video today. I really felt it afterwards so I didn't want to push my luck after over a week off.
After all that, and a short time Sparking, I had to be good and do some paperwork now that the sinuses have let go of the full-time death grip, and transferred to a part-time death grip. Part-time means that it feels rough first thing, lets go somewhat during daylight hours, and then reasserts itself as the evening draws in. Add to that a runny nose and a sore throat and I may well have a cold going on here. I am pretty suspicious about it anyway, and there are a lot about at the moment.
Anyway, I cooked up a very garlicky and oniony ratatouille for my dinner tonight, and tomorrow I am making a batch of my curry, all being well, to try and kill the germs with the spices and garlic. LOL They are going to run a mile before I've finished with them.... or is that meant to be my nose.... hmmm....
In other news, I made a decent dent in the paperwork. Yesterday I read right through all the Tax Return paperwork, and highlighted the relevant sections in the help booklet for ease of reference when I fill the form in later. I will have to ring the office because there are three or four things I'm not clear about at this point, but apart from that it doesn't look as bad as I feared. Let's hope these aren't famous last words. *grin* Today I got about 5 months of receipts straightened out, and have about four more months to go. I am very grateful that I have a very simple business. This is the first time I have been self-employed and had to fill in a tax return. The joy of learning curves. :-)
Well, I have two hours of TV to look forward to tonight - CSI Miami, followed by Drop Dead Diva. The first show starts in fifteen minutes, so I am going to toddle off and settle in. I think I've earned a comfy seat for the viewing, and maybe a nice crochet hook and some soft wool to play with. We'll see. :-)
Hopefully, I'll be able to pop back later on for a quick run through some friends blogs before I head for bed.
Hope you are all having a great day! :-)
Loving some random LOLs :-)
