Kids, Kitten, Paleo and Exercise
Friday, September 02, 2011
I'm watching my sister's kids this weekend. It's my sister's anniversary so she and the husband took a trip to Vegas.
The kids have been good so far. Did their homework without complaint. Ate dinner too... although they both picked at their veggies.
We're going to bake cookies after they get out of school today, cook a healthy meal and maybe watch a movie. Still trying to figure out what to do with them tomorrow. Maybe the Highland Games? The Zoo? Maybe I can pay them to clean my house? (j/k)
In the mean time, I'm doing laundry and waiting for animal control to come by. There's a stray kitten in my carport that isn't doing well. Poor baby has very little muscle control and isn't eating/drinking anything. I put it in a box in the shade with a couple of towels and a bowl of water so it wouldn't wander off before they got here. I hope they get here soon.
I've been doing really well with the Paleo eating. Except for date night, and that was purely an accident. I went to a restaurant that offered grilled fish. Apparently at this restaurant grilled = floured and pan fried, then covered in a butter/flour sauce. Yeah. To top it off, it didn't taste very good. Oh well.
I exercised Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and today. I couldn't do anything on Wednesday because I was in so much pain from Tuesday's day at work - literally on my feet, overusing my hands/wrists, poor ergonomics, climbing, crouching, crawling, cranky patrons. By noon I was ready to go home, but I had to stay till 8pm. Bad...
Today I jogged around a lake. I went 2 miles in about 22 minutes (go me!). I think I'll do another week or so of 2 mile runs and then I'll increase it a little.
OK, time to get something useful done.
