I need to introduce this one by saying a huge THANK YOU, already, for the support and comments that you have shown me. You all are, already, wonderful.
Today started off with a few choice words filtering through my head about my new trainer. My legs hurt. No, that’s not accurate, my quads ached and my thighs whimpered with every step I took today, all thanks to the sadist who is going to help me get healthy. Treadmill for a warm up, then wall sits, and mountain climbers, and walking lunges, oh my! Yep, I cussed him through my sweat yesterday. My arms, specifically my shoulders and biceps, faired better, so far, but there is always tomorrow to look forward to. Oh, joy. I did drag my butt back in this morning and managed to walk 35 minutes at a 3.5 mile pace, not great, but better than nothing.
I will also talk about (brag or moan about) my adventures in cooking. I am NOT a cook, at all, but part of this journey to better health is figuring out healthy food options for this super picky eater.
I have been craving shrimp for a while now, and I decided to stop and buy some to try and cook for dinner. I HAVE NEVER COOKED FRESH SHRIMP BEFORE! This could be a disaster, and I have supplies on standby. I pop a potato in the microwave, fix myself a salad, and get the skillet out for the shrimp. Some non-stick spray , cajun seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper on the shrimp, and I am off and running. It takes me almost six minutes to realize i have the WRONG BURNER on my stove on. The empty pot was nice and hot, the skillet with the shrimp? Not so much. I will remind you that I am no cook. I did manage to get the correct burner on, the shrimp to cooking, and -miraculously- everything was ready at the same time! I must admit, my shrimp were pretty damn good!
I’ve my next appointment with my sadist tomorrow evening, so I will let you know how that goes. I am not looking forward to this because we will take my initial measurements. Yep, you’ll know those, too.
Keep the comments coming, please!
