Well, the day started on a good note. Out of bed at 5:15 for the 6am hot yoga class. I was definitely off of my form in class today. My ankles and left knee were killing me! Usually, I have slight pain in my left knee from my years-old dislocation injury, but I could not figure out the ankle issues. I’m taking a full day off from any workouts tomorrow, so that should help with the healing. I have another reason to take tomorrow off, but I’ll get to that..
After yoga, I came home and I could feel a migraine threatening to take ahold, so I headed back to bed. Dozing on and off seemed to help it subside so I made a late breakfast – mushroom, chive and garlic powder (oh yes..) egg white pillow with Trader Joe’s low cal wheat bread and sugar-free apricot preserves. It looked a little something like this:
I absolutely love this bread. I buy one loaf every 3 weeks or so and it lasts that long (if not longer) in the fridge. It’s pretty amazing and filling.
I spent the rest of the morning finishing laundry and loathing it. Then I headed to Mom & Dad’s, which brings me to reason #2 that I will not be working out tomorrow. In the morning, I will be taking this sweet fluffball to the vet!
About 6 weeks ago, I had to put my 17-year-old darling Frisky to sleep. He stopped eating and was in liver failure, so we decided it was best. Steve & I have talked about getting a new baby or 2 (since we won’t be having any human ones any time soon). This guy was found in my parents neighborhood after a nasty Nor’Easter last weekend. The woman that found him has not had any luck finding the owners, so my Mom (God love her) said that she would take him. She didn’t want to see him taken to Animal Control, knowing he would soon be euthanized. Sadly, most people want to adopt young kittens and not full-grown cats.
We’re pretty certain that he’s about a year or slightly older and is as sweet as they come! Steve & I will talk over dinner tonight about keeping him, but I’m pulling for it. I sorely miss having a furry family member in my life. I’ve had pets since I was born until we lost Frisky!
After the visit to Mom’s to collect pictures and video of that guy, I came home and made some stir-fry for lunch/leftovers. I used leftover teriyaki chicken breast, baby corn, fresh mushrooms and straw mushrooms. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s leftovers!
We’re heading to Plaza Azteca tonight for dinner and I can’t wait! I think it has been over 6 months since I even stepped foot in a Mexican restaurant. Bring on the fajitas!
