Simple Saturday

Yesterday ended up pretty well. After work I made it to TKD class. I was really glad since there's no class next week. It was a rough work out, but fun. My daughter is better and she ahd only a fever yesterday evening early and none since. (yeah!)  Bad news is when I walked in from TKD last night the little one had copious amounts of goo coming out of her eyes. Yep...pink eye. Dang it. So I called in some drops and she's better today and I am washing and disinfecting the heck outta this place.

Yesterday food went well. Calories were 1047. Today I weighed in and finally lost a pound. Feels good to see the scale finally move. This morning I went out for the first run since I hurt my hamstring. It went ok. I had to walk the last 15sec of one of the 3min intervals because I was headed up a hill. After I was only a little sore. i stretched and iced. Feels ok now.

Hubby and I are going to a home owners meeting in a bit. Here in Texas home owners associations have a lot of power so it behooves you to be involved. After we're going to dinner and movie to see Battle LA. Looks good. We're going to the theater/restaurant and I plan a salad and grilled chicken.  Wish I understood why some days I'm hungrier than others. Today seems to be a hungry day, but I'm ignoring it.

I'll leave you with some pic from my walk/run. I did C25K week 3 day 2. I'll finish this program if it kills me.

That's all for today. Have a great Saturday!
These daffodils always remind me of my grandma's garden!
Red Bud tree. State tree of Oklahoma! Boomer!
Bradford pear blooming. Achoooo


  1. Pink eye -- that's close enough to oozy skin nastiness that it always skeeves me out and has me power washing the house too!

    Glad you made it to TKD. You're on track -- excellent!

  2. I'm so glad your little girl's fever is better. I hope you have a nice rest of the weekend.

  3. Get those trash cans off the street Dr. F., or there's a big fine in your future. And don't even think about mounting a satellite dish in the wrong place. Don't even think about it.

  4. Hey are you from Oklahoma originally? Because I am and that redbud tree made me TOTALLY homesick. I have never seen a redbud in Utah, where I am now. Sigh.

  5. Enjoyed reading your blog. I love the pictures. Here in Indiana we aren't quite that far along yet but looking forward to it. Those hungry days are quite a challenge. I guess it's our bodies adjusting to a new level. Being hungry and not eating means your body will have to burn fat for fuel!!

  6. @ Granny Panties: yep. I'm an Okie.

  7. Oh look!!! you get blooming foliage! We still have about 20 inches of snow on our lawn. Spring seems SO FAR AWAY! I'm jealous of your daffodils!
