OMG – is it only day 5?

Today was a good day and a bad day.

I worked out again today for the fourth time since getting the all clear to do so…Chandalyn has blown me away – I really wondered what on earth I could do at a boot camp, since running, jumping, jogging, sprinting, jumping jacks and practically everything else you think of associated with boot camps is forbidden.  She has had me sweating buckets and working out to the max.  without once compromising my back.  In fact I haven’t taken any anti. inflammatory medication at all so far….woo hoo.

She really increased my workout on the elliptical machine too, making me run intervals – but I think that had a lot to do with her catching me watching HGTV when she wasn’t looking….I was still moving, honest!

Food wise I was very nibbly today and I know that I ate more than I should have, although the Turkey Keema I made for supper was delicious and nutritious…too spicy for the girls though, Imogen clutched her throat and asked for water in a strangled whisper.  That’s my drama queen – she makes her mama proud!

PVR Research called me today and interviewed me for a taste testing job.  I didn’t get the job, because I don’t eat at fast food restaurants enough!!  In fact she told me that no one had ever answered just once a month before.  Made me feel quite proud of myself, but honestly you don’t all eat at these places more than that do you?!  Bad friends, bad, bad, naughty..but on the other hand PVR will pay you to be opinionated if you do.

The weird news is that I have been nominated for a blogging award for my other blog – very annie mary.  I needed a good laugh and that sure gave me one….go check it out and vote for me – just for the hell of it!
