which is not news! I'm always boring!
Working. Sleeping. Swimming. Tracking.
Walking Turtle Puppy.
Who is very bad. My new gym routine has altered her usual morning routine, and she has A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THAT.
I get up at 5:00am, go to the pool, swim for 30-40-45-60 minutes (whatever I feel like and/or depending on what time I got there). Shower, come home. Usually I get home just as Mr. Turtle is finishing getting ready for work. And here comes puppy, down the stairs, Grumble grumble, cry, whine whine whine. DOG. You are not alone. Dad is here you know. You were JUST sitting on his feet. Your humans are here. EVERYBODY KNOWS IT'S BREAKFAST TIME. CHILLAX.
Honestly? It's adorable. hahaha.
Then I walk and feed her, and make my breakfast. I get to snuggle on the couch with her while I eat my breakfast. Morning routine! I like our new morning routine. I don't know what your problem is, dog.
My sleep patterns are all weird now, is what led to the gym thing. I wonder if it's a seasonal thing. Suddenly all I want to do is go to bed at like, 9pm. But I wake up at 4:45 or 4:30 WIDE AWAKE. So meh, I get up and go to the gym. Ha.
We had a Big Family Party this weekend at my in-laws, which is always crazy times. I didn't get around to tracking it and can't remember what all I ate. But a lot of the food was not that good - it was catered stuff, etc., not my MILs awesome cooking. I ate a couple of bites of the pasta and was like "... this is not delicious." so for once I didn't finish it just because it was on my plate. Victory! Then I was not so much feeling like dessert so I ate a few bites and meh. Mr. Turtle finished my cake. hahaha.
I have not had time to make more lawnmower bag (BOOOO!) but I remembered a few of my strategies from last year - I stopped on the way to work yesterday and got a couple of those small boxes of frozen veggies. I ate a whole box of plain spinach mixed with zucchini & carrots in a light sauce. Plus a burrito. Not bad, and way better than what I would have ended up with if I'd gone to the work cafeteria (which was closed yesterday, hence being forced to shop. hahahaha)
I'm also back on my sweet potatoes for breakfast kick. I had some with ginger paste I threw in my freezer and it was THE BEST THING EVER, so I baked more giant sweet potatoes last night to enjoy all week. mmmmmmmmmm. Turtle Puppy would like to remind me that "HEY MOMMA I LIKE SWEET POTATOES TOOOOOOO" Yes I know. This is *my* breakfast.
So yeah. That is pretty much all that is going on. I tracked my swim and my food so far today. I don't so much care if I track every single day right now (I missed the weekend) but trying to keep up here and there to sort of "keep an eye on" how I'm doing.
I don't know if you know this but I like to sew. Not clothes but like... crafty things. I got a bunch of patterns a while back and am trying to make a bunch of things to stockpile for baby gifts. It seems like everyone (cousins, friends, MY BROTHER!, etc.) is having babies. I never have time to make a present between hearing about the baby and the shower, so I'm stockpiling. Hahaha. I'm in the middle of simultaneously making 6 items of the same pattern right now. I got a lot done this weekend so that's good. It's a very fiddly time consuming project, some stuff has to be hand-sewed, etc. I'll be relieved when it's done and I can move on to a new pattern.
I also did some yard work this weekend, and a couple weekends ago I painted some furniture for Mr. Turtle. So I do do SOME things besides work. They are just BORING things.
