I spent yesterday working in my spare bathroom. The toilet broke over the weekend. I discovered a large crack that went through the tank from top to bottom. Apparently the previous owners ran into the same problem but just applied porcelain paint rather than actually fixing it. The patch lasted for more than eight years but I would rather have it fixed for goodso we replaced the toilet. in the process of replacing it, I realized I needed to paint behind the tank so I had to stop and do that. I made 2 trips to the store for paint and supplies then I had to go back again because the wax ring for the toilet was too small to fit the toilet into the pipe on the floor. I know this is all real interesting but this is what you get when I am just writing to write (sorry).
I have lost 8 pounds since November 12th. 12 more to go.
I got in core working out yesterday and a mile of running. I have cut down on my food intake but I have not recorded how much exactly. That will be a task for next week.
I hope to get a lot done today so I can go for a 23 mile run (10:00 pace) tomorrow. My workout goal for next week is two workouts each day alternating tempo and intervals.
Hope you all have a better than great Thursday!
Five for Friday
I was going to start my regime this last week but, I decided to make this a goal for June. Long slow runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and two-a-days Monday through Thursday. Cross training will include an hour a day of yard work, cardio weights, swimming, core workouts and possibly cycling (if I can get my bike fixed). So I am looking at 200 plus miles for June (it actually comes to 230 or so but I figure life often steps in so aim low and be pleased if I overshoot). I am actually a week into meditating with regularity and properly. June will also be another month of juice only. I will work on an actual schedule each week and post it (whether you like it or not).
Air popped popcorn topped with a little salt and nutritional yeast.
I will get my awards finished this weekend. There are several. A big thanks to Amanda for all the nominations.
I found out that the nearby mall theater has the summer movie program and we went to the first movie in a theater with our kids, ever. It was ok but they were a bit spooked when there was a part in the movie that was a little tense. The dark theater combined with the threat of a volcano to our heroes on the screen was a bit too much so we sat in the wings sort of watching the climax of the movie. It all worked out and we will return next week to see Smurfs.
I am not sure if I blogged about this before, but I discovered how to get the texture of my hummus thicker, tahini. I added tahini and it made the hummus I make fantastic! Tahini is not cheap but I only need a tablespoon for each 1 or 2 cups of hummus. I love it!
Thanks for reading! Love and light. Namaste.
