Stomach go owie
Tuesday, April 19, 2016
We refer to this time of year as birthday season in our family. It starts with my youngest on the 14th, then her twins on the 18th, my son-in-law on the 21st, my oldest daughter on the 28th and then my son on May 5th. My version of planned parenthood?
This year we also hit the most milestone birthdays we will in one year. Shelby turning 21, her twins turning 1 and my son turning 30. So many celebrations, so many foods I don't normally eat.
In the last week I've eaten BBQ burgers twice. Normally I don't eat store bought pre-made patties but this week I've had two. I knew the parties were coming and made sure I had the calories available but that didn't matter. My body is not used to eating these foods and ouch, ouch, ouch. My stomach is in knots and I'm up 2 pounds. So not worth it.
But it's only 2 pounds and I know what kind of weight gain it is and it's not a binge eating or a long term bad change in my lifestyle. Certainly didn't tempt me to go back to eating this way.
The nice thing was that after dinner last night my daughter's MIL suggested her and I go for a walk, she's been lacking exercise and missing our runs and hikes. We headed out and ended up doing a 5K very brisk walk in 40 mins. Very brisk. Problem was that neither of us had the right shoes on and we both ended up with huge blisters on the bottom of our feet. So now stomach and feet go owie. Blisters or not it was nice to get out and consider 5K a short after dinner walk.
It's a beautiful day here today and I'm hoping to do a hike after work today and then a nice healthy dinner of grilled shrimp and fresh veggies. Please forgive me stomach, I still love you.
