Song of the day: Josie and the Pussycats - Three Small Words
I was a little nervous that I hadn't planned out what to eat yesterday. Especially since I knew we didn't have much at home. That is pretty much a recipe for a McDonald's drive through meal. But I made it through and ate at home! For lunch I had a chicken breast and a potato (that I cut into fries and baked). Since that's really all we have in the house it's also what I made Kyle and myself for dinner. Except for dinner I marinated the chicken in red-wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and oregano. It's the same marinade recipe from the greek style pork chops that we had at my parents house this past week.
I worked out after Kyle and I had dinner, and it felt great! I've been doing speed walking on the treadmill because I just wasn't feeling up to running yet, but last night I did run for a couple of minutes! I actually felt like running! I think that's a huge step for me. It really shows me that my body is improving and getting healthier. When I got home I took a shower and then got ready for bed. At about 11:00 it hit me. Terrible terrible migraine/tension headache mixed with terrible terrible sinus pressure. I tried to just sleep it off, but I couldn't get comfortable. Finally at about 4:00 I took some tylenol and that helped a little bit. It at least took of the edge so I could fall asleep. I woke up this morning not feeling much better, and my whole body feels swollen. My plans for today were to go work out then go grocery shopping, but I think I'll wait and see if that actually happens.
For lunch today we are going to have shrimp stir-fry. I don't have a recipe link for this because it's something that I've always made. For dinner we are going to have pan-fried chicken fingers with spicy dipping sauce and sweet potato fries. It looks really good and seems like a good game-day food. GO PACK GO!!
