Food and Workouts

So I just finished washing and cutting up all this:


The great thing about only having one daycare kiddo this summer is that I can take him to the store with me!  So off we went to Aldi’s this morning to do some grocery shopping.  After I put him down for a nap, I got busy washing and cutting up the fruits and veggies.  They are all stored in glass containers now that I know how horrible plastic is.  I feel absolute guilt over having plastic daycare toys, but unfortunately, I just can’t afford to replace those right now.

I’ve also been doing something active each day.  Sunday, J and I did stretching and a leg workout together.  Yesterday morning, I got up and did w1/d1 of c25k.  I was only able to do the jogging part for the first half of it and then had to switch to all walking, but I will try again tomorrow.  Unfortunately, my legs just don’t like me anymore.  I used to be able to run 5k’s (slowly) but now, whether it’s walking or jogging some part of my lower leg hurts.  I can’t walk long before my calves really hurt and jogging hurts my shins.  I’m hoping, the more I do it, the better it will get, but I’m guessing it has something to do with the fibro.  Today, I walked for 30 minutes right after I put the little one down for his nap.  I switched up speed and incline within that 30 minutes.

Car update:  We’re trying to find a refurbished motor, but so far, no such luck.  Well, let me take that back.  I think he found 1 but it’s $1600 and has 120,000 miles on it.  I don’t know what’s going to happen with us financially, but I know it’s really weighing on J.  I just keep looking him in the eyes and telling him it’s okay, just have Faith.  Somehow, someway, God always brings us through it.

  1. First, great idea about repackaging your veggies so they are quick and easy to eat. In fact, I think I am going to go do the exact same thing because I know we have some fruit in the fridge that needs to be devoured before it goes bad.
    Second, keep up the great work with exercising. I know it always helps me be motivated with Mr. MPB joins me (in fact, that’s why we work out together) so I hope J will continue to work out with you. I also think it’s a great way to spend time together too.
    Lastly, I desperately wish I knew something about cars so that I can help you. Or that I knew someone who could somehow help. I hate that you are facing this unexpected additional stress right now. As always I am hoping for you and keeping you in my thoughts.

  2. Those fruits and veg look delish! That’s awesome that J is willing to work out with you! My husband is a total sloth most of the time haha. I agree with MPB that it is a great way to spend time together.

  3. Nice fruit and veggies. I find it so much easier to grab those as a snack when they’re already washed and cut and packaged. I hope your car situation works itself out.
