This morning, I can't really explain it, but I am in a GREAT mood. I feel the old me coming back... the one that went on vacation 3 weeks ago when I fell and busted up my body... The one that was doing so great, running, lifting, doing tons of cardio, abs, and toning... 3 weeks isn't a lot of time, but in that time I've kind of been overeating and undermoving!
But I'm done with that. Got a good start this weekend with an hour and a half hike through the gardens with my pup, Muffin. I've written about her before, and I know I got a good workout from the look on her face when we got back! HA! Poor baby was about to keel over. Muff gets quite a look when she's tired. Something between "Oh My God I Hate You" and "I've been wandering in the Sahara for a week."
She definitely had the look and I definitely burned a few calories.
I have some fabulous meals planned this week and last night I made a Shrimp Bisque that was to-die-for. Even the hubby lapped it up. And he doesn't even love Shrimp. Which proves I was right - he doesn't dislike shrimp, he just hadn't had it cooked the right way yet.
Anyway, this morning I was trying unsuccessfully to put on my shirt in the bathroom when I got stuck. Totally, completely, straight-jacket-style STUCK. In a pull-over tee. The bum arm was not cooperating and the Man was not responding to my calls for help... so we had to get the shirt on... and the little maneuver I did to free myself resulted in the worst mind-blowing pain I've experienced since this whole fiasco. Something popped and grinded and sounded generally like my arm might fall off. I had to take a Mommy-minute and sit with my head between my legs on the closed toilet... Deep breaths, Megon. Deep Breaths. Somehow the Man could not hear my call for help, but he heard the cry of complete agony and rushed to see what was wrong... Oh, nothing. Just my arm is going to fall off. That's all. Don't worry. I have insurance.
So, after that, I am still saying....... THIS WILL BE A GOOD WEEK. Shoulder pain or not. This will be a good, good week. It's the week of Easter and I am super excited still about my days off and all the fun stuff I'm going to make and do with Little Boy. This morning I brought Hot Cross Buns to my coworkers and I think I've still got it even if I couldn't taste them since I'm gluten free now... Their faces said they were good and soft and yummy like they were supposed to be. :) And it made me feel good to see them enjoy them. That kind of thing always makes me smile.
What makes you all smile? I hope whatever it is, you have a bounty of it today in your life...
Take care, ladies!
