can I be honest?

Just writing yesterday's post made me feel better. I went up to the Club with husband and did the same program on the treadmill as the day before. I totally rocked it - I did over 7k. Husband then generously took me to the dining room for dinner at the Club. Yay to not having to cook. We shared an appetizer of dumplings (I only had 2 of the 8). They serve the best dumplings I've ever tasted in my LIFE. For dinner I ordered the mixed greens with chicken breast. Mmmm. It was GOOD. I also had a nice glass of red wine. Good for the heart. Wink wink.

Any of you read MizFit's Friday post? It was a good one. Sigh. It actually made me cry. Just because I feel like my family is falling apart. We are so... disjointed right now. I hate the feeling. We are spinning out of control and I don't know how to stop it or fix it. Bigger sigh.

I made some chicken soup last night for dinner tonight. And I picked up a nice crusty loaf of whole grain bread. Good comfort food for this cold weather we are having.

Tonight I have to drop daughter at tutor and then I may run up to the gym. I haven't decided yet. My hamstrings are screaming from that treadmill program. That has to be a good sign.

Well peeps - have a healthy day.


  1. sounds like you had a great workout this weekend! Way to go!! I think you should go to the gym tonight, even if it's just for a walk, you'll feel AMAZING for doing so!

    I totally hear you on the "comfort food" thing, just something so warm and wholesum makes such a difference! And the Chicien soup with multigrain bread, totally a great choice!! Way to go!

    Take care,

  2. Aw, I'm sorry you're feeling stressed about your family. Big hugs!

    Remember that there is a physical reason that we crave certain types of food when we're stressed. Comfort foods like carbs actually make us feel better physically. So when our cravings get out of control we're really following what our body wants, and you ARE making good choices.

  3. Family stress is always the worst. (((((hugs))))) to you! Thank you for posting that treadmill program -- I am totally going to try it! :)Hang in there!

  4. You didn't elaborate on what's happening with your family...what you meant by "falling apart"...I do hope everything is okay.

    Whatever is going on...hugs to you!

  5. Sounds like some great workout, great job.

    Sorry about how you are feeling right now (hugs) that it will get better, off to go read Mizfits post, thanks!

  6. Fatinah, not related to your post at all, but are you still watching Flash Forward? You got me turned on to it, and it's pretty good (except that it's a rerun tonite!)
