Morning! I love Thursdays. They are one step away from Friday and everyone waits for their favorite TV shows to come on this night. I grew up a Friends girl for sure.
I started my day at cardiac rehab and spent more time than usual with the patients which resulted in staying nearly an hour later than usual. Luckily I brought food with me.
I lightly toasted the pumpkin spice English muffin that my boss had given me and topped it with sunflower butter. Pumpkin spice English muffins are delicious! Soft and subtle.
As I was coming back from cardiac rehab I saw the concierge employee bringing out lunch to our office. A dietitian and nurse organized a group luncheon just because. I had an apple and brie grilled cheese that was eaten in record time. I couldn’t get enough to eat yesterday. I think it had something to do with the 10×400 intervals from the day before.
Ever find yourself repeating things at work? I find myself often saying
We underestimate how much we eat and overestimate how much we exercise.
After completing diabetes charting, entering productivity, and updating my diabetes education hours I headed home feeling slightly under-the-weather. Everyone seems to be coming down with something including Aaron. I do not want to get sick again right before a race. I just went through that with my Madison Mini Marathon.
I was tempted to skipped my strength workout but plowed through it. I put in another Harry Potter movie and did my own strength workout. Harry Potter is a sure-fire way to feel better.
I prepped dinner at my place but took it over to Aaron’s to cook. I cooked the potatoes and Brussels sprouts while he cooked the fish. By the time dinner was done and plated, I started eating as fast as I could. Close your eyes and imagine this dinner…because there’s no evidence of such a dinner now.
Project for the night: making sure I filled out my application for an absentee ballot.
I’m registered to vote in Bloomington (2 hours south of here) and will be on a plane by 6am on voting day. It looks like I will be at my first voting booth at the age of 29!
Final message: Viva Lance Armstrong!
