Who else has the day off besides me? I actually had a half day yesterday too. Tony had his check up with his surgeon to see how his wound vac is coming along. He took the sponge out and took a look at his wound and said “it’s beefy and bloody – it looks great!”
Turns out he’ll have to wear the vac for another month – our next appointment is not until May 3. I know he’s sick and tired of being glued to that tube coming out of his stomach.
I actually surprised Tony – he didn’t know I was going to show up! But I like getting all up in his business – no seriously, I hadn’t been to see this doctor with Tony for a couple months, so I just wanted to see where we were at in person.
We ended up actually going out to lunch! I think it’s the second time we’ve been out since December? Unfortunately, it was the Chicago Cubs opening day so we had to be subjected to that (Go White Sox!). I ended up getting a cup of the beer cheese soup (they had me at cheese) and a side salad. Couldn’t take pictures because we were in the upstairs bar part and it is way too dark.
When we got home I was able to start our laundry, took the dog for a 10 minute walk, then Hannah and I headed to the gym. I had done my 30 minute Classical Stretch (this one was actually really hard!) and needed to get in my additional 60 minutes.
I warmed up for 10 minutes, ran a 5k in 36:00 minutes on the dot, then walked to cool down until I hit sixty minutes. I kicked that workout in the balls. Thanks for coming with me Hannah!
I wished I could have run a bit faster, but my blood sugar was only 180 to start. Still ended up with a 12:00 minute pace – not too bad.
Here were my eats: Breakfast was the Paleo breakfast casserole with a cup of grapefruit:
Thanks to Google images for my beer cheese soup. I make a cauliflower cheese soup with bacon – only six WW points! Check out this recipe here. I loves me a beer cheese soup.
Since Tony and I ate such a late lunch we didn’t have much of an appetite for dinner so I made sammies. Ham and cheese sammies with mustard. Don’t knock the mustard. In fact, I should have added more. With veggies chips and a sliced kiwi.
In case you are wondering, I am keeping good track of my eats and workouts! Complete with wine stickers too!

Alright, I am off to get my 30 minute stretch in. Then Hannah and I are thrifting this morning. Tony and I will get the grocery shopping done and sadly, I still have more laundry to do. Anyone want to come over and do my laundry? I’ll make you some bread!
