Well, today was day two of no exercise…
I know, I know…some people are probably giving me a big one of these and maybe some of you are even giving me one of these
I ended up taking a rest day yesterday due to some extreme stomach discomfort. (If you chatted with me on Twitter, you know what I’m talkin’ about)
Today, the stomach discomfort continued, however it’s the asthma that has me laying low…
As you may have read earlier this week, my asthma has been acting up quite a bit lately. It tends to get worse at night, often resulting in being awaken by chest tightness, coughing, and wheezing. Well, last night things were tough; and by tough, I mean “couldn’t catch my breath, had hubby wanting to drive me to the hospital,” tough.
Not exactly my ideal way to wake up in the middle of the night, if ya know what I mean!
So I took the inhaler again, attempted to drift back off to sleep sitting up, and did the rest of my whole “asthma attack” routine. Needless to say, when the alarm went off at 5:15 for my morning workout…I immediately moved it up an hour and went back to sleep. No workout happenin’ this morning.
I called my doc and she was able to get me in this afternoon, which resulted in a brand new, snazzy inhaler.
I really wanted to try to stay away from the daily inhaler, but for now I’ll give it a go. Whatever helps me sleep through the night will be my friend at this point! Fingers crossed that it helps…that, and the Metamucil samples I was also given.
Well geez, wasn’t that a downer of a beginning! Sorry folks, no worries…I’m alive and kickin’!
Today’s morning meal was super delish!
- Chobani plain Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 sliced banana
- Tiny squeeze of honey
- Cinnamon & Pumpkin Pie spice
I actually did have everything neatly placed in my container, but it didn’t survive the drive into work. Oops.
Time to add the toppings!!
- 1/2 slice homemade pumpkin bread
- 1/4 cup Kashi Heart to Heart
- small handful granola
I got lazy with lunch, and didn’t snap any of my mid-day meal, BUT…
I can recycle photos!
I was also greeted by one of my fellow pumpkin-lovin’ co-workers today with this little gem:
Yes, that is pumpkin spice caramel.
Yes, I’m absolutely amazed that I’ve managed to still save it until tonight.
Yes, I’m probably going to grab it as soon as I finish typing this post.
I kept things pretty easy-peasy tonight…
A turkey, lettuce, tomato, & pickle sandwich with honey mustard on potato bread.
Plus half of a red bell pepper + hommus on the side.
Not too much more to report on the kitchen front tonight…
Our cabinet installer did come back this morning to finish up with the rest of the molding…
And since I was given the go-ahead last night to stock my wall cabinets, I made sure to get right to work!
“Why, hello there baking products. I know, I know. It has been far too long…soon enough, we will meet again. Until then, welcome to your new home.”
ACTUALLY, word has it that cooking could begin taking place again as early as tomorrow as long as all goes well with the new oven hookup! Can I get a WOOT WOOT?!?
Question for the Night:
What should be the FIRST thing I cook/bake tomorrow?!? I have too many ideas…I need your advice!
