This is getting to be annoying. Last night, just as I was getting ready to go to bed, the fire alarm went off and off and off. This has happened about six times since I moved into The Closet. Normally, other than that time I smelled smoke, they go off after a couple of cycles. Last night, however, it kept going on forever. When I heard the fire department pull in, I finally gave up and marshalled MalibuKen out of the parking garage and headed over to Target to kill some time. Because nothing screams classy like trolling through Target at 10:00 in your pjs. I bought a sleep mask and some spray starch. Wonder what the clerk thought I was going to do with that combination. Probably too fetishy for my imagination.
I came back home and the damned thing was still going off. I sat in the parking garage with the radio on for another half an hour. I am tired this morning. Oh well, nothing to be done about that.
And why, you might ask, did I need to buy another sleep mask? Well it seems that I've lost my other one in the Candy-Spelling-vastness of my home. I cannot imagine what has happened to it. I've looked high and low, stripped the beds, and I cannot find it. Of course, I'm expecting it to show up tomorrow. Probably in the fridge. Oh well. This new one is bright blue, so it won't be as easily lost.
Got in a good workout last night and fixed myself a really nice (huge) salad for dinner - topped with grilled tilapia. I've begun charting my food, not for quantity but for quality. I'm trying to increase my fiber content and decrease the overall fat consumption to try to deal with my elevated LDL numbers. Turns out that yesterday I ate 1200 calories (lower than I like), had a nice workout and gained a half a pound. This is why I hate weighing and measuring. I'm trying to keep everything the same and just work on changing up the breakfasts. So I've weighed, just to see how these food tweaks are affecting me. I've had Greek yogurt with fresh blueberries and some flax seed meal for breakfast for the last two days. This morning is an eggbeaters omelet with mushrooms, onions and roasted red peppers. Sure looks good.
Mid-day workout will be the elliptical, I think - unless something else just screams my name. I'm planning an evening easy workout, followed by a spinach salad, topped with salmon and blueberries. Are we sensing a superfood theme? Yea, me too.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Be super with your food.
