Let’s not consider this a real entry, but rather a list of things I’ve noticed over the past week.
First, my new favorite end-of-the-workday snack has become an apple with a tablespoon or two of peanut butter. I slice the apple and dip it into the pre-measured peanut butter. It takes a long time to eat, is yummy, and stays with me for several hours.
Second, people who run, jog, or walk at night along busy, winding, treelined streets without sidewalks need to wear something other than black or navy blue! Reflectors, white sweats, ANYTHING that lets people driving cars see them. I didn’t hit anyone, but it’s a bit scary.
Maggie seems to have put herself on a diet. She’s not finishing her dinner, and is looking quite good. She’s always seemed to have that ‘magic sense’ of when it’s time to cut back. We should all be so lucky!
A wonderful lunchtime salad is chopped cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and whatever else with some hummus mixed in.
This is the last weekend for the little farmer’s market. We’ve made some friends there, and, in fact, some have mentioned that they’d been talking about the woman who comes with her mother and large dog. Who knew that people took such notice!?! I’m going to miss this weekly event. There’s a farm stand near us that’ll stay open a couple more weeks, but then, it’s back to the grocery store for fruit and veggies. A sad thing.
It’s been a very stressful week, workwise. Deadlines and not enough time. But I’ve been holding my own – some people think I’ve lost a few pounds! Perhaps, but the exercise MUST pick up, or else. And the consequences are too dire to consider.
At least, I can report that eating hasn’t been too bad, unless you count a couple of skipped lunches with the expected late-day consequences.
How was your week? Any revelations? Thoughts?
