Skiing went much better today. We had a about 4 inches of snow while we were at church. So, after lunch, I did a couple of errands, came home, and strapped on those bad boys. This time, though, I had poles, goggles, a nice squishy hat, puffy coat (CUSHION), and puffy hood (just in case.) I didn’t need it though… Went all over the yard, slid a couple times because Rufus kept pouncing on me, but made a good trek with no falls. YAY!
My sense of balance seems still off a bit. I feel like maybe I’m a bit too heavy or something, and I lean too much on one side or the other. The strategy is, at this point, to try the skis a few times a week- even if its just for 10 or 20 minutes. But, every.single.day. I have to do my plank routine at least once if not more. Its only 5 minutes of planking, but its helped me regain much balance and strength that has been lost over the years.
Eats today were fantastic. Coffee. chicken thighs, crispy skin, and butter. I made 10-12 thighs, and introduced that delicacy to my hubby. He ate 2, I ate 2. I left the rest on the plate to eat later. Forgot my son was here sleeping (after working a midnight shift). When I left to do errands, I never imagined he’d wake up. But he did. When I got home, all the chicken was gone. The only forensic evidence was the ketchup swiped across the plate, and the boy had some smudged on the side of his cheek. Grrrr. There are worse things he could eat, so I guess, that’s better than Mc D’s. I’ve got backup meat in the fridge, so its not like I’m gonna die. And, if I ran out of food, well, I’d just fast. No biggy.
Its so nice not to be tied to food and meals. Just eating when I intuitively feel like eating. Not having to stuff my face full of carbs to feel full, only to think I’m hungry again half an hour later. My soggy puppy is trying to jump on me now…so typing time is over!
