Don’t let the name fool ya. There’s only a wee bit of butter in this incredibly tender, saucy chicken. It’s coconut milk, yogurt, and Indian spices that build the big flavors.
I can start to do what feels okay - but nothing remotely intense.
ie: walking / biking (at therapy)
I went for a walk w Josh the other night (20-30 minutes) and had to stopped for breaks twice. But it was nice to just get around! Nothing really sweat-worthy though.
I am thinking next week I might reactivate my LA Fitness membership so I can start lightly biking there 3xs a week and do light weights for my arms. We’ll see!
My energy levels are slowly coming back, but I do get wiped out really easily still. Plus if I stand for too long, my legs & hip ache.
Plus: I think this dress fits pretty well!
Negative: This dress was too loose when I was 20 pounds lighter in February.
Considering I had a last-minute funeral to attend today (then again, aren’t they all?) — at least it was still in my closet.
Trying to keep my eating in check, but it’s REALLY HARD YOU GUYS.
I am ready to workout again.
This lady turned 75 this year. 75! She has been one of my favorite people in the world for 15 years - not only because of her passion for music and teaching, but the love and laughter she has given so many of us over the years. And although I haven’t been in her classroom for 11 years now, she will always be my teacher and I will always be her student. Celebrating her life & career today was one of the most special days of my life - and I hope it was one of hers. 🎼 Love you, Spud.
I feel so proud when friends tell me their parents like me. Like damn right they do, I am a delight.
lololol this made me laugh!
I absolutely LOVE the food at this healthy restaurant down the street from work.
I absolutely hate how pricey it is tho.
That being said - this blueberry, almond butter, banana, hemp milk & date smoothie + this chilled watermelon, tomato, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, bell pepper soup is the absolute perfect lunch for a tired Tuesday afternoon.
Day Two of holding myself accountable going well!
My current weight.
Being completely immobile for 7 weeks has hit me hard, even when I have tried to watch what I have been eating 70% of the time.
But that weight is only 2.9 pounds up from May 17, the last time I weighed myself before surgery.
Since last November tho, I have gained a total of 21.1 pounds.
OVER 20 POUNDS.
I kind of hate myself right now.
Part of that is holiday weight, but most of that packed on when I stopped CrossFit and all physical activity in February.
While I am making huge progress with my hip - and am now able to walk around with only the occasional assistance of one crutch - I am still tired all the time. I can only handle standing for so long. And physical activity - any REAL - workout - is still so far away.
But today, I AM attempting to move out of my parents home, where I have been recovering for the past 7 weeks. We are going grocery shopping, and I am going to try to surround myself with the best foods for me possible.
It is going to be a hard transition home. I am actually sort of terrified. This recovery has taken longer and felt harder than I ever imagined.
So please wish me luck.
And here is to eating better again.
