So, I’ve been wrestling with the same 5 pounds over the past few weeks. Not sure why, as I’ve been doing good eating wise. I hate plateaus, I really do. My mantra lately – this too shall pass.
Our lucky puppies have been getting lots of walks lately – today, they even got 3! Tuckered them out a little though – they’re both snoring away, not a care in the world. One thing I pondered today, though, is that our walks our getting more interesting now that I have to hold my pants up. No joke – I’m in desperate need for smaller sweatpants. I have to say, it would make for interesting conversation in the neighborhood 🙂
Surgery is three weeks away. I’m anxious, nervous, excited, determined…..scared, and a bit stressed. It’s coming fast – truth be told, I’m more scared of after the surgery. I know it’s going to hurt for awhile — but hopefully, the pain will go away. Which would be a step in the right direction – I’ve been living with the shoulder pain for almost a year. Almost anything would be an improvement.
I love stewed tomatoes – they add a level of sweetness to whatever they are in. I made soup last night and used up the last can, so I did a little sneaky chef action and added apples to the mix. It worked well to add some sweetness and nobody was the wiser…except for me 🙂
