thursday--getting ready for first 5K

Thursday, March 26, 2015

good morning! well, our first 5K race is Saturday. going to be quite chilly (probably in the 20's), but it will be fun. of course I have hurt my back--it seems to be an annual thing with this race, but its feeling much better. will just take it easy and enjoy the race. the bigger hurdle is Friday--my annual physical and I am not looking forward to the weigh in. after going through everything with my parents, my weight is up quite a bit. but I need to face it down and go forward. I am slowly clawing my way back to where I want to be, and I will get there. being honest about where I am right now helps me to do that.
we had cooking class the other night--a blast as always--grouper, rice and beans and a terrific black bean salsa that everybody spent the evening sloshing all over their entire meals. there wasn't a speck left at the end. oh yeah and totally yummy key lime pie. here's a twist I had never thought of. when chef brad makes a graham cracker crust he always grinds up a handful of nuts with the crackers. at class he threw almonds in it and it was such a nice touch.
well--time to get a move on. have a great day!

    wow throwing nuts in with the graham crackers sounds fabulous! Good luck at the race.

    You've had a lot to deal with this winter, so of course your weight will have suffered (mine did, too) but you're aware of the whys and now can deal with fixing the issues.


    And now I want Cuban black beans and rice....mmmmmm
