For a change I have some really random thoughts to share with you this Thinking Out Loud Thursday. Let’s dive right in.
Team meat or team beans?
My husband insists that only chili with meat in it can be called chili. I’m guessing the real reason is he doesn’t like beans. Guess what we had for dinner last night?
Throw enough cheese on almost anything and he’ll at least eat it.
Rain makes me inactive — sort of
Another rainy day yesterday. No dog walk. Heck, just getting them out of the house to do their business wasn’t easy.
It’s kind of amazing how dependent I am on dog walks and running to get my steps in. I topped out around 8000ish steps.
But I was anything but inactive for most of the day:
- Half an hour of yoga when I woke up
- 10 minute dance DVD to warm up for weights late morning
- 30ish minutes of kettlebells
- Another 15 minutes later in the day of another dance DVD to warm up again
- Another 15 minutes of a different strength routine from Run Faster, Run Less
That’s just the structured activity. Doesn’t include the laundry, stripping and making the bed, and throwing the chili together in the crockpot.
Steps aren’t everything people!
A fitnessista (oh wait, that’s taken)
I do love that site. But I’m referring to being a fitness fashionista. I always say if you look good, you feel good, and you try harder.
So I did get dressed yesterday. In workout clothes mostly. Nice ones, though. Except for shoes. I kept my slippers on all day except when I had to go out with the dogs and get the mail and during my exercise.
Because, why not?
Thanksgiving was nice, but I’m thankful it’s over
Entertaining is work. Did you see this photo of me, my sister, my mom my niece? I started out with a cardigan over that tank, but geez, I sure got hot over the course of the day.
It’s amazing how warm you get when you’re moving around vs doing nothing.
I’ve managed to mostly keep the clutter from creeping back in. Of course it’s only been a week. It’s inevitable. Maybe I need to share a photo of my kitchen counters here every week? Because they often seem to take the brunt of it. I’m not joking about sharing a photo of them, either!
And then there’s the little fold out on my couch that I use as my desk . . .
Yes, we still have leftovers
Most of them are frozen, of course. We still have about 3 turkey dinners left (and we gave a bunch of turkey to my sister!). Still have stuffing. Still have the healthy desserts I made: some are now frozen and I am proud to say I have not picked at them at all.
I’m not saying I haven’t enjoyed them some more, but it was a conscious decision rather than “I’ll just take a little taste” which always somehow turns into eating half of what’s left.
There’s still cornbread, too; I need to freeze that. I really like it, even if no one else did. But it’s not something I can eat all the time. I’m not running enough for that.
What did you have leftover from Thanksgiving?
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her:
