Day 43: Sniffle

Yeah, cold is still with me, and it seems to have settled id by dose. Nice. I said I was going to work out today, and dagnabbit I DID. (Oh my, did I really just contemplate whether "dagnabbit" has one 't' or two? Oy.) 

I still don't have much of an appetite, and my carrots have gone dry and scary looking. I did manage to grab the last banana (sorry hon) and had that for a snack at work. At home I wasn't hungry until about 4:30 and then had an unsweetened applesauce cup and a handful of almonds. Dinner was pork chops on the grill, salad, baked potato and green beans. I am glad that I never went in for that sour cream business on my potatoes...one less thing to worry about. 

Do you remember those M&Ms that followed us home from the movies last week? Well, not only have I not eaten them, but neither has Jason! I am so very not fantasizing how those crisp little shells crunch between my teeth as the chocolate tumbles around my tongue and melts so deliciously. Nope. Not doing that. Cursed things. 

As I mentioned, I was very determined to work out today. During my workout, I came to a conclusion about my bike. It's slow. Yes...I know it's a stationary bike and goes nowhere. The TIMER is slow. I have looked at the clock when I've started a few times now, and it's been off as much as EIGHT minutes! Friggin' hell! So I may have been working out closer to 40 min. than 30 this whole time. I thought it was maybe off 'cause I do briefly stop every once and a while. I don't stop for 8 minutes...or even one minute 8 times. Uh uh. No way. So now, I am going to foil this bum timer and just use the TV clock. It doesn't lie to me. I guess in the end it's not so horrible to have worked out longer that I thought....but it's the principle of the thing. 

I hope everyone is having the fantastic weather we are getting here! It's amazingly warm. 

Alrighty, here they are...

Stats for the day:

Weight: 206

Exercise: 40 min. moderate-high intensity
