I got on the scales this morning – egad, up to 2 kgs! I nearly died then I remembered my sister and I made some very salty popcorn last night. I’ve been trying to drink buckets of water today to flush my system out.
I went for a run today. It always takes me so long to get motivated on Sundays – I sit around thinking about it for ages when I should just get out and do it. I guess having a lazy Sunday morning doesn’t hurt though.
For a while I debated going into the gym but the weather was so nice I wanted to run outside, plus it would waste an hour plus getting trams on a Sunday. Instead of my normal, boring track, I decided to run along the Merri Creek towards Collingwood (about 8.5 – 9 km). I haven’t done that in ages and had forgotten how many hills there are!
I couldn’t really get into it today and kept stopping to walk. I really had to push myself. I guess I’m still getting back into it after being sick but I expect myself to be able to be better than ever. I don’t think all the squats I did the other day helped either.
On the way, I found a public toilet that had real toilet paper in it. Woohoo – doesn’t take much to make me happy.
I felt really washed out and exhausted – I hadn’t eaten much so I think that’s why.
I had the yummest dinner tonight – I made Suzy’s Chicken Kiev recipe – which totally rocks. I didn’t roll it in breadcrumbs (oops) but it really didn’t need it. And I used ricotta instead of Laughing Cow cheese. The parmesan on top is a real winner. My fave thing to do with kiev is chop up some potato into thin slices and cook it in the same tray. I also steamed some carrot and spinach but forgot to check the bottom water and burnt my saucepan.
I definitely feel better with all that protein in my belly.
