It’s amazing what a little distraction does for me. I had my first day at a client site for a new project I have. It’s a long term deal and (you’re going to think I’m crazy) but I’m looking forward to the 2-3 days in an office. I never really realized how much “work” suits me. Not teaching but project work. I like solving problems and being creative and that’s what I’m allowed to do on web projects (and boy this one is a doozy!)
So the toddler had a day at camp and I had a day in the office. I started my morning with a filling breakfast (Grapenuts and berries), brought a few snacks (pineapple and Kashi bar) and hit a salad bar for lunch (added some protein with tuna and chick peas). Dinner, well, I was just NOT in the mood. Me, not in the mood to cook. SEE it happens! ;~) So we got Chinese and I enjoyed my steamed chicken with veggies, and split a spring roll order with the toddler. For dessert some fruit and a little bit of ice cream, again, split with the toddler. Then I took my own advice and the family went out for a post dinner walk. I couldn’t go too far, I’m still quite sore and VERY swollen but it felt good to get moving.
After the toddler went to bed, I recorded a (not very) quick video answering some questions. It’s long, it’s sappy and it’s shaky but I’ll post it anyway. You can decide not to watch it. ;~P
All in all, though, a great day! I just cannot wait to get real active again! Never in my life, NEVER, would Imagine in my wildest dream that I would MISS the gym as much as I do. I mean really, I’m craving a workout.
OH! and I drank 128oz of water! It didn’t help much with the swelling though. :~(
