This hasn’t been a relaxing Sunday at all! After a hefty session in the exercise room, I have been cleaning house all afternoon. I’m ready to collapse now, but there are a few piles of laundry to wash, dry, hang and fold yet. I spent the last two days having fun, so I do deserve a day of work. Played golf both Friday and Saturday mornings. It is very unusual for me to get up for a 9:00 am tee time, but they were ladies tournaments and they always start early. On Friday we invited ladies from other clubs to come play, so I met some new people. And Saturday was our regular monthly tournament day. I can’t say as I played all that well, but my legs are slowly getting in shape to manage the uneven terrain of the course. I do have a chiropractor appointment Tuesday to get the kinks taken out of my lower back and shoulder.
Food has been difficult. I haven’t eaten many meals at home for the past few days. And even though I have tried to choose compliant foods, I know there have been some avoids creeping in. We were invited for cocktails last night at a friend’s house. I ate some shrimp tempura that was an avoid. I also ingested some wheat. There were dark circles under my eyes this morning from the indiscretions. But today I’ve had eggs and pineapple juice and a handful of nuts, so far. Hubby is making a turkey sausage casserole for dinner. All the ingredients are beneficial or neutral for me. I do seem to have a problem with some of the spices in the turkey sausage, but for some reason he never hears me when I tell him that I react badly to it. And he tries so hard to cook for me! So, I will try to eat around the sausage. There will be mozzarella cheese in it for protein.
Someone commented that being a B, my cholesterol problems are more likely to be from stress than from food. That could be encouraging. I have had much less stress these past few months. I am working less, so probably any real stresses I have are from my own imagination. It just reminds me that I must get back to convincing myself to learn meditation. I have tried to do it on my own, but lose interest fast. I will have to keep on the lookout for a class. Does yoga count as meditation? I’ve never studied yoga. What do you think?
