Active Recovery

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Walked Cooper 11.1 miles today and did 10 minutes of ST, and called it enough. It was cold today. My parents even restarted the fire in their fireplace it was so cold. Silly me, I didn't check the weather before heading out the door this morning and didn't grab a jacket. So, there I am in 40 degree weather in a t shirt. Yikes! I made Cooper run for about a mile out of our three mile loop so I could stay warm. It worked. My fingers got called, but otherwise I was okay. For our afternoon and evening walks I got out my heavy winter coat. At heart I am a wimp.

Had lunch with mom and dad and my brother, Jeremy. I made a nice pork stir fry (heavy on the veggies), and green salads for everyone. My mom buys some stuff through a buying club, so it comes in bulk. So, today she gave me about 4 pounds of brown rice, and 3 pounds of oats, as well as half a pound of sliced provolone. She also gave me some really spicy chili powder (mostly cayenne I bet), but I forgot it on their counter, so I will have to grab it next time I am out there.

My other brother just called and told me we ARE doing brunch for Mother's Day. He will be cooking, so it is anyone's guess what we will end up eating! It is nice that we are going to do Something together though.

    My Sis and I are putting together a brunch tomorrow also. I'm bringing a fruit platter with orange creme yogurt dip, crispy bacon and a plate of strawberries dipped in chocolate. Enjoy your day with family.
