I was lucky to have the off from work for the holiday yesterday, but it sure didn’t feel like a day off. While Kevin was at the office, I kept myself pretty busy.
I was at the doc’s office by 8 a.m. to see if they’d take my blood early. I really really really didn’t want to fast until my 2 p.m. appointment – 8 was hard enough for me! Sadly, the nurse refused, so this was breakfast.
I came back to the house, finished some laundry and dishes, swung by UPS, took my car in for an alignment, and made it to the grocery store. ***Side note, going to the grocery store around lunch time when you’re not allowed to eat lunch is no picnic.
After finishing up a few more chores, I squeezed in a little retail therapy prior to my appointment. Believe it or not, all this activity actually took my mind off my grumbling belly. I wasn’t toooooo hangry during my appointment.
Of course, I had food and workout clothes in the car. No surprise there, eh? Papaya to the rescue!
After 30 minutes of elliptical and some back and biceps training, I scarfed last night’s leftovers around 4 p.m. without spoiling my dinner. Cabbage and kale casserole hit the spot. Well, I think a lot of things would have hit the spot, but you get the idea.
Whew – thank goodness I don’t have to do that for another year!
