Why my Monday is Marvelous:
With that being said, let’s rewind back to Saturday. Got in a 13 mile run, which felt amazing. I wanted to go longer but I had things to do… aka more unpacking. It feels so good to finally say it’s all complete though!
While I was reading my new Oxygen Magazine, I came across an ad for MyoFusion Probiotic Series Protein Powder. It had a great quote on it that I wanted to share with y’all:
” If you think you can, then you know it starts with confidence. It takes as much mental toughness as it does a fine toned body. What gets your butt to the gym? How did you hit that last rep? Why did you go back for more? you know what you want and it’s confidence that helps you take the first step. Real strength helps take you to the place where failure is no longer an option. It’s time to say “I CAN DO THIS! “
I found this to be extremely motivating. Hope the same goes for you 🙂
Fast forward to Saturday night… we decided on Domino’s for dinner. I rarely eat take out pizza anymore, but was craving it. The hubs got a meat lovers, and I had a veggie (just green peppers & onion) without sauce & light on the cheese. It was delicious!! On our way home we picked up a few DVD’s to watch over the weekend. While eating, we watched “That’s My Boy” starring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg & Leighton Meester. Overall it was good. It was nice to see a funny Adam Sandler movie again. Still, none of his movies these days will be near as good as his older ones.
After the movie was over, I got the worst ear ache & sore throat. Pretty much intolerable. When I mentioned going to the ER the husband knew it was bad. I hate hate hospitals & doctors. Neither one of us had ever been to the hospital over here, and weren’t sure how the process went. I’m glad to report to y’all, it’s the same as in the states :). Maybe it wasn’t a busy night, I don’t know? but I was seen very quickly. The doctor said no infections & just put me on antibiotics. I’m happy there was no infections, but wish I knew what’s causing the pain. I’m thinking it may be connected to a toothache I have going on. The husband has been telling me to see the dentist for a couple of months now… guess I have to suck it up & go see one.
The rest of the weekend was rather uneventful. The doctor said the antibiotics would make me tired, and boy was he right. I slept from 10:30 saturday night until 7:45 sunday, napped half the day way, and just slept for another 8 hours. Between all my naps, I was able to make a yummy smoothie for a snack, cook a delicious dinner (Cajun white fish over a salad) & had my first protein muffin! I’m not sure what’s taken me so long, but you guys are right.. they are good!
On Saturday I received 2 packages. One from my Penpal which was awesome (thanks Kasey) & my recent Vitacost order. Have y’all tried “Cinnamon Bun Protein Powder”? If not, you need to either 1. Order some now or 2. Drive to the closest health store near you & pick some up. Saying it’s amazing is such a understatement. I’ve used it a couple of times this weekend (smoothie, mixed with vanilla frozen yogurt & protein muffin) & can’t get enough of it.
Well now that I just wrote a whole novel, I think it’s time to get my day started. I’m still in a lot of pain, so finding a dentist first thing this morning will be on the agenda. Fingers crossed that I do & there’s an opening. I don’t think I can take much more of this pain… and it also needs to be gone by our vacation to Greece in a couple of weeks. I’m pretty sure the hubs wouldn’t enjoy a vacation full of complaining & tears.
**Oh yeah.. can I tell you that I just walked a mile to the gym to find out it’s closed… Seriously, who ends one holiday and celebrates another holiday in celebration to the previous holiday ending???!!!
If you ran a race this weekend, how’d you do?
Ever have a cavity fall out?
