Furry Furriday: Semi-Retro Edition

TGIF!

All the animal pictures featured on this blog thus far have been very recent; however, I am sitting on a lot of pictures of them all from our pre-October 2013 move. Would eight months be considered retro? Generally, no. But we are so very settled in our new house now that it makes everything in our old house ancient history. So to compromise, “semi-retro” fits, right? 🙂

Date: 10/13/2013. Here is one of the many trips Bruno and I took to move our stuff to the new house.

9/19/2013: One month before we moved. As soon as I whip out a camera and stoop down to his level, he always walks towards me and ruins the shot, so this is a rare time when he actually sits still for the camera. I'm sure he walked over right after this shot though. :)

EXERCISE LOG

I would have worked out today except that yesterday I sort of twisted my leg when getting into the car at the bank. It was a good thing too, as my leg started complaining today while I was at Costco and walking to the post office box. I do plan on working out tomorrow, however, so hopefully it will shape up in time to do so! 🙂

Whisker Wednesday

Bloggy Stuff:

  • I have no idea why and how the cats always get photographed with a nice camera, yet when it comes to the dog, he gets my iPhone? I promise you he’s just as loved and gets the most treats in this house. I mean look: he has his own blankets, pillows and his own side of the couch. Spoiled much?
  • This will be the last Whisker Wednesday because… I’m moving it to Furry Furridays! For me, TGIF is never without a cute pic of something cuddly and furry, so why not my blog too, right? Right! 😉

EXERCISE LOG

Once again, waking up this morning was torture, but I did it:

And completed 2.04 miles. Woo!

Today was a GREAT workout – not the kind where my heart is about to beat out of my chest or where I turn bright red in the face (I miss those days), but for the simple reason that by the time I was done, I could have pushed for another 1/8 to 1/4 mile! It’s all the sign I need to know that my leg is healing for sure.

Normally, I am that crazy person who would celebrate that realization by pushing for that last extra distance, but I plan to work out tomorrow, and planning my first attempt at back-to-back workouts since I hurt my leg is already asking for a lot during the rehab process. Furthermore, even though my leg is improving, it did experience that familiar ache at 1.5 miles again, so I should just be grateful and not push it. 🙂

EXERCISE LOG

I got up at 4:40 am this morning…

And went on a 2.13 mile walk!

At 1.5 miles, I felt my leg tug at me again, but I managed to push through and reach 2 miles. It was a good thing I was pretty much in front of my house by then because I’m not sure my leg could take much more. But still – I was able to work out today, so hooray!

Dinner

The weather was incredibly hot today, so I came up with a brilliant idea to eat something cold for dinner. I tried this “5-Minute Healthy Strawberry Frozen Yogurt,” but it didn’t quite work out. Maybe it was because I froze fresh strawberries, but my food processor would not and could not process all the strawberries, so I ended up with a lot of rock-hard frozen chunks. It got better as it warmed up, but then it became more soup-like. 😦 So I ate a few bites and then surrendered to a bowl of cold cereal, which I should have chosen for dinner to begin with.

  • 1 bowl of cereal with almond milk.
