Even though this is titled Super Bowl Sunday - it isn't about football - it just happens to be that day!!
Its been a rough few weeks since my last blog - let me explain why.
1. Jan 18 is my birthday but its also the anniversary of my older brother's suicide so that day is always rough along with the weeks surrounding it. Did fine on my birthday for the most part but the week after wasn't so great.
2. My lower left leg was starting to hurt and I finally figured out that it is either a shin splint or a muscle pull so I've slightly slowed down my walking - didn't get my 6000 steps in the last few days but I have been trying to stretch and do other stuff. Apparently the other stuff worked as I still lost 3 pounds last week and 2 pounds the week before. I think I upped the workouts just a bit too fast for my inactive body.
I still have a long ways to go but I haven't quit - I just haven't blogged for a bit and not quite as active in the teams the last couple of weeks. I did go with my husband to a 27th anniversary dinner for a group - didn't have the pasta, the bread or dessert as they contained gluten & sugar - was hungry too - I did do 4 salad bowls instead. As someone once said, 'Work smarter, not harder'; so I decided to skip the really bad stuff and concentrate what I could eat - I got something more to eat when I got home. The night before I had gotten hungry late so I had found a pumpkin pie smoothie recipe - made it and really enjoyed that treat. healingcuisinebyelise.co
Even added a frozen avocado instead of the ice cubes - had too much to fill the two glasses for hubby and I, so we filled up the popsicle containers and will get to enjoy it again probably this week.
