Rest Day + Doc Appt

Howdy there! How are you doing today? We’re having a rest day here on the workout front – we’ve been hitting it pretty hard for the past few weeks, and it just feels like a day for rest.

I had a doctor’s appointment this morning, so I had to get up earlier than usual again today – no pic of my outfit because I simply washed my hair, threw on some guy clothes, and went. I’m grateful that I have such a thorough doctor who wants to keep me healthy and happy …. he noticed something going on with my liver during my last cat scan, and he wanted to talk to me about it today, just to be safe. 😉 As a former alcoholic, I can’t help but wonder if I’ve screwed up my liver through the drinking, but he has ordered an ultrasound, which should tell us more.

Breakfast – 10:00 a.m.

My usual egg whites, bacon, sausage, and salsa. Easy peasy, eaten quickly. Sorry for the blurry pic, but I was in a hurry.

After breakfast and my doctor’s appointment, I ran to the store for some food – I wanted to make more deer meatballs for Luke, so I needed a few ingredients.

Lunch – 1:20 p.m.

I baked a chicken breast with some broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bell pepper, and carrot and served it with BBQ sauce and light Italian dressing.

Snack – 2:25 p.m.

I wanted a banana and peanut butter, so I had a banana and peanut butter! YUM!

This afternoon I got cozy with some tea and made more deer meatballs. It was a bit strange not hitting the gym, but I was exhausted, and Luke was sore, so a rest day was much needed.

I had a glass of milk around 4:30 for my calcium.

Cocktail Hour – 5:30 p.m.

I tried a new-to-me Humm kombucha in coconut lime. Oh it was so tasty! It reminded me of a pie. Will definitely buy this one again! 🙂

Dinner – 7:15 p.m.

I really wasn’t in the mood for dinner, y’all. At this point in the day, I felt a bit low mood-wise and very exhausted. I sauteed some spinach and added it to the rest of my spaghetti squash, and I topped the mix with roasted carrots, sweet potato, and broccoli. I added some tomato basil sauce and two deer meatballs and some Parmesan cheese.

This meal simply didn’t taste great to me. I don’t know why – there was nothing off putting about it. I felt a bit better after I ate the meal, however, so I guess I was hungrier than I thought.

I also had some trail mix because I was craving something sweet and salty.

I wish I felt better tonight – I think the weather is being weird again for me  and is messing with my mood and energy.

But here’s to a more energetic tomorrow, my friends!
