To barrow from George Takei...Oh Myyyyyy!! It's raining here in Vegas! That gets a double
!! I love the rain and my new car does excellent in it. Much better then my old Mustang (knocking on wood here!)
But I still need to be careful when driving in the rain. Most people here just DO NOT know how to drive in anything other then sunshine. And even then a lot of people just plain do not know to drive! Rain also means that I'm going to have to wash my car when it's done, which looks like maybe Sunday.
They gave us cupcakes at work today. It's to celebrate an achievement by our company. I was going to stay strong. The cupcakes were in the Cafe and that meant walking down two flights of stairs and across the courtyard. I was weak. A couple of us did go down but I only had one. And it was regular sized one...not the big ones I get sometimes from Gigi's. It was coconut with coconut frosting and blue, sprinkle coconut flakes. It was delicious! I did log it and I adjusted my food tracker for it.
And one of my evil co-workers brought in frosted animal cracker cookies! I LOVE those things. I ate two servings (like 16 cookies!). Again I logged them and adjusted for them. You know..it's not so much the taste of them as the sensation of biting into them and chewing them. Strange huh? Oh well...this afternoon I have resisted both more cupcakes (they moved the left overs into our break room just down the hall) and more cookies (setting just a few cubes from me). I will be strong the rest of the day!
I have also logged part of dinner. Which a pork loin roast in the crock pot. I added a few frozen baby red taters to it. It should be all done by the time I get home tonight. Then all I need to do is cut and serve!
Of course there will be dishes to do after dinner. But I use a cooking bag made for my crock pot so I won't have to clean that.
An update on hubby: He saw a PA yesterday afternoon at the Take Care Clinic in Wal Mart. The PA gave him two Rx. One for pain and one is an anti inflammatory. He also gave hubby a referral for X-Rays of his shoulder, then told him most likely hubby will need surgery. We already knew that, but now we can get the ball rolling on it. I was a bit worried about the pain pills. Hubby is allergic to codeine and the pain pills were in the codeine family. He took half of one then I watched him like a hawk. The pharmacist had him buy some Benadryl in case he had a reaction, and I told him...first sign of trouble and I'm calling 911! But he was OK with it and it did help a lot.
I did do my workout today. I wasn't going to because I was so sore from the treadmill the last two days. But with the cupcake and cookies I decide I couldn't afford to skip it. I went back to the elliptical today and did 53 mins or so. I'm still sore but it's not any worse then before working out. So
OK...I'm done with my rambling for today. I'm going to enjoy our rainy weather while I can. All too soon it'll be hot and sunny all the time. Have a great Thursday!
