Funky Friday

I had a decent day yesterday. For some reason my belly was funky and I am getting stabbing pains on my left side this morning. Not sure what is causing it.  For dinner, I put a whole chicken in the crock pot with a jar of salsa and some taco seasoning and cooked it all day. It smelled SO good when I got home! I read about it on one of the blogs I read but I don't recall which one. It tasted fantastic and it was so easy. I served it with roasted tri-color potatoes and asparagus. As for activity, I didn't do anything formal but a project I am doing at work has me lifting and bending and so I know I am burning some calories doing that. I did not have a chance to upload my bodybugg this morning but I was in my calorie range for the day.

Nothing too exciting planned for the weekend. I need to make sure I eat regularly and don't graze on snacks and crap. It seems like I do fine during the week and then unravel all my work over the weekend and it needs to STOP now! Ughhhh!

Sunday I am planning on meeting up with an old friend I have not seen in at least 15 years. We were friends growing up and through our early 20s and then our lives went different directions for various reasons. I am going to suggest a late breakfast or early lunch. It will be good to see her but I can't help but feel anxiety over it. I have had that happen a number of times recently and it catches me off guard. I used to be a very social person and was out and about all the time but now I feel better just going home. I haven't been meeting up with friends like I used to either. It is like I went from one end of the spectrum to the other. I would like to be more social but also strike a balance without ignoring my own needs. Does that make any sense? Well I hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...


  1. The whole wanting be more social yet also wanting to go home makes perfect sense to me! I do find that I (we) are more social in the summer. In some ways it feels easier to ask people to drop over for a glass of wine on the patio. Maybe because I don't feel I need to scrub the house down first?

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Enjoy the visit with your long lost friend! Have a great weekend!

  3. Hope your having a great weekend!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
