Last week took us all out of our routine. My husband was involved in a conference all week. My daughter had finals. My students were working on their last yearbook projects. We try not to make a habit of watching TV during dinner, but my daughter was of the opinion that a good chick flick was the best way to unwind from one day's finals and get ready for the next. Who was I to disagree, especially since BTD food was part of the plan. We watched old favorites like "Romancing the Stone," and found new favorites like "Phantom of the Opera."
This week will be the start of the summer routine. My daughter starts her summer job as a nanny. My husband's commute will be shorter since the traffic is significantly less after school is out. That means we both get to sleep a little later. I have one more busy week, fine tuning the last of the yearbook pages, then I can start my summer projects.
In between those atypical two weeks was Memorial weekend. Saturday and Monday we didn't even set the alarm. What a treat to sleep until I woke up! The neighborhood pool opened, and I swam laps. My shoulder is tired and a little sore, but no hint of freezing up. I didn't cook much. The refrigerator was full of food I had cooked during finals. We ate rather well the first part of the weekend, but tonight the refrigerator is almost empty. I'll have to be creative when I pack lunches tomorrow morning, and I really must get to the store tomorrow for fresh food.
I focus most of my attention on the food and exercise aspects of the Blood Type Diet. A holiday weekend is a good reminder that rest is also important to a healthy lifestyle.
