Remember yesterday how I said that I don’t enjoy massages? Well that was solidified last night after my appointment. I left there feeling horrible. HORREEEBLE. Nauseated and my eyes were all wonky and my head felt like it was jammed inside a big feather pillow. I suspect it was probably because she gave me a deep tissue massage where my injuries are and there’s lactic acid and other toxins that have built up there which got released into my blood stream. Whatever the reason, I felt like crap, I was irritable and tired and generally lovely to be around. 😉
Ray was actually home before I even left for my appointment but he begged off making dinner anyway and asked if he could just take me out instead, my choice of location. I had no energy with which to complain and no real reason why that wouldn’t work so we went out for dinner to a favourite restaurant and then hit up Costco on the way home. Unfortunately going out to that particular restaurant does not yield leftovers (her portions are perfect for one meal) so after having been at work all day, yucky massage and then going for dinner and groceries, when I got home near bedtime I still had to make my lunch for today. THAT is when this whole paleo/primal/grain free/whatever-you-want-to-call-it lifestyle really sucks. When people ask me if the way I eat is difficult, I always say it’s not. Because it isn’t. Until you just want to throw yourself at your bed and not be standing in the kitchen for 30 minutes preparing a balanced day of food. When going somewhere and buying your lunch the next day isn’t an option, this whole grain free thing can feel like a bit of a trap. Fortunately this set of circumstances doesn’t happen very often and the benefit of staying true to the theme is well worth any inconvenience that comes about occasionally.
I did not go to the gym this morning, there’s no real excuse except that I felt like crap and didn’t make the effort to get out there. It happens.
This weekend we’re babysitting Ray’s daughter’s dog. His name is Kaos and he is ENORMOUS. Easily 120+ pounds. He’s also a big suck, sensitive and whiny and fragile. Should be interesting. I’ll take a picture/video of him this weekend and post it here, the dog is massive, it’s hilarious.
I think that’s about it for me. We have very little planned for this weekend and “sleeping in on Saturday” has been discussed more than once this week so I think I won’t get away with getting us up for an early morning walk….which is, honestly, just fine by me! It is supposed to be sunny & warm…fingers crossed….right now I’m wearing a t-shirt, a winter wool sweater, jeans and my heater is going under my desk!
Anyway, if it is nice weather then I think we’re going to put our bicycles in the back of Ray’s truck and drive to a great bicycling area that’s a bit too far from our house to start from (Colony Farm for the local readers among you). There’s up to a 40km easy trail ride that we could do but I doubt we’ll go that far. And, if it’s not nice this weekend, I’m almost positive that the house would appreciate getting cleaned.
And last, I ordered from here for Ray’s birthday next week. I think it’s a hilarious concept and a delicious sounding product, fun for a surprise instead of me baking him a cake. https://mancakesbakery.com/index.html
Have a great weekend!
