... I'm going stir crazy without my running this week. Spring Break has left me with a lazy 7 year old who doesn't want to go out with me in the mornings lol! I don't like running in the evening since Bob is home from work and we enjoy family time, plus I don't like running at night at all. I'm a big safety nut, so I get too nervous going out alone, even if I have protection and a light lol. I'm using this week as a rest week (still doing strength training though) and it's just driving me crazy! I'll be back at on Saturday for sure, I'm doing a virtual 5k in honor of my mother in law who passed away last St. Patricks Day.
Last night I took a nice hot bath soak with one of my new Lush bath bombs, I used Intergalactic and loved the water color. We have been planning to pain the front home gym room a dark teal since we get so much natural light in there, I wanted to step outside my comfort zone for this room.
I have added a new food to my "ok list" lol!! I'm such a picky eater and I have been trying to try new foods little by little. I made kale chips a couple years ago and didn't like how they taste, but I think it was how we flavored them because I picked up a bag the other day... and I'm in love! I need to try making them again with a better recipe. I'm now converted to the Kale Side and want to try all the kale things! We are headed to the movies tomorrow to see Zootopia and I will be bringing this bag with me for snacking on.
My goal has been to switch to vegetarian slowly. I dropped red meat a couple years ago, then dropped pork about 6-7 months ago, I've never liked fish or seafood so that wasn't a problem. I now only eat chicken and turkey, so little by little I want to drop turkey, then chicken. So protein has been my biggest struggle since most of the veggies and food that contain high protein... I don't like or haven't tried. I'm trying to try new things each month, when I finally feel I can get enough protein in without chicken/turkey, I will start to eat less and less. It's just a personal choice of going vegetarian, I won't go into all the ethical reasons and such of why I'm going vegetarian, but I may later on after I make the full switch! I did go vegan "cold turkey" a couple years ago but wasn't prepared at all so I only lasted about 2 weeks. I'm trying to fully prepare myself this time, but not taking the full vegan plunge... yet.
