Yeah. Remember yesterday’s mud slick? Well nothing was seriously damaged, but I am feeling it today. Today I am moving slow and taking it kind of easy. I’m also taking several ibuprophen. I think my shoulder got the worst of it. By grabbing the tree I slowed my fall so while my rump has a bruise, it isn’t as sore.
Of course it does have plenty of padding. Which kind of helped.
So I am waiting until the world dries out a little more and the slick mud turns to dust before going on another walk. I’m hoping that I can hobble today and be fine tomorrow. At least that is the plan.
I had tomato soup for lunch with a slight dusting of parmesan on the top. While Cheddar is traditional, parm has less fat because it is a drier cheese. The parm gave me my decadent cheese, while not adding a heap of calories and the tomato was warm and filling. It was a satisfying and not terribly caloric lunch.
Tonight we have tortillas and beans. I’d call them homemade burritos, but we leave out a lot of stuff. Mine will have beans a small dollop of sour cream about a teaspoon spread into a light coat over the black beans so everything has the feel of being covered in sour cream, a light dusting (I T) of cheddar , diced tomatoes, some cilantro, a dash of cumin and a whole heaping bunch of sliced and pickled jalapenos.
It will be spicy, feel decadent and not be too heavy. I find if I add rice not only does it up the calories but it is way too heavy for me to have at night. I don’t sleep well with an overly full belly. Over all I am quite looking forward to it. And then tomorrow we have the grand Beef Wellington Celebration meal complete with midnight champagne.
I will not be counting tomorrow’s calories.
I just don’t want to know.
And one day not knowing, won’t kill me. Especially after Christmas Goose-fest.
I am pretty proud of myself this week. I am sore and avoiding exercise today, but I didn’t dissolve into a complete lump between Christmas and New Years, which has been known to happen. This year it didn’t, so regardless of scale, I consider it a victory.
Tomorrow I will be posting the Weekly Makeup Bag and a getting ready for New Year’s Post. Friday I will be taking off, but I will be back again bright and early the following Monday. So for now I am going to hobble through the rest of my day and I will see you bright and early tomorrow morning.
