Today is a good day. Got my blood draws done this morning (as well as a urine sample, good thing I was well hydrated). Then came home and had a late breakfast. We got laundry done while trading playing with Little Bit. At noon we went to the In-Laws for my FIL's Birthday. We had food delivered there and stayed all afternoon. We came back home and had delivery for dinner. I never did work out. I'm not gonna beat myself up about it, and yet it would have been nice to get a workout in. 

 

Glad you were finally able to get the blood draw done and that it went well. I hate giving blood because I have small veins and they ALWAYS miss 😒

Today is a good day. Little Bit woke up in the night, so she and Sra. Tanque slept in. I had breakfast and took care of several things we had procrastinated on the day before, scoring major points in so doing :) I also did the EMOM KB workout I created, so I did indeed reunite with the bells today. Didn't cook a meal, but I did bake some bone in chicken thighs we have that were subbed on our grocery order so I can debone them later for meals. That's a big part of the reason I haven't cooked much this week; I had a mental block about cooking with the bone in thighs. Today Little Bit is 9 months old! 

 

\o/ The bells missed you!

I'm not a big Hank Williams Jr. fan. However, this song, an update to "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight" that was modified and ran for years as the intro to Monday Night Football, is angsty and about getting old. I like it.

 

Today is a good day. Didn't work out, but I did pick up groceries and cook. Lunch started when I browned some frozen corn and put it in a bowl with halved grape tomatoes and chopped romaine. I dressed it with two kinds of cheese and Lime Vinaigrette. Then I took the chicken I baked the day before and deboned some of it and browned it in a skillet with avocado oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika and lime juice. There wasn't a lot of chicken to my eye so I took some of the corn from the salad (I had not yet dressed the salad at that point) I then added a jar of queso dip (really good stuff) and stirred. I sprinkled some colby jack and cotija cheese on it and put it under the broiler. It was really good.

Today is a good day. Little Bit was up in the middle of the night again and took forever to go down. It was so long I tagged in. She was fussy for me too, but I gave her some baby Tylenol and she was out in a couple of minutes. I don't think it works that fast, I think she just got distracted and her tantrum was the only thing keeping her awake. I genuinely did think it was teething trouble, and still do. We were tired today, but watched church online, then had lunch (I picked it up). We hung out with my BIL and his family which was fun, then I made a pizza. I had a second crust from the package I used for pizza a while back, so I put some sauce on it (it was tomato basil pasta sauce) and some shredded mozzarella. Then I put some parmesan on it. Then I put some Queso cotija on it. Then I put a cheese blend on it that had four different cheeses. I topped it with some shredded chicken from the thighs I cooked the other day. Then I sprinkled it with some dry basil. It was very good.

teething is hard. It seems so cruel that our teeth break in like that, but then the consolation is seven cheese pizza soooo.... worth it in the end to have teeth, I suppose :) 

It is indeed worth it to have teeth. And we don't remember teething, only those who raise us.

You make a good point.

 

It's not a TV Studio, It's a **#&(*#&$ Rock Concert! I don't know if I've posted this as song of the day yet. I don't care. It deserves a repost.

 

Today is a good day. I did KBs in the morning, that went well. Work was ok. Sra. Tanque made dinner! One bit of news, I have a follow up appointment tomorrow regarding my BP meds. In prep for that, I did extensive labs since it had been a while. My Hemoglobin A1C (How they check for diabetes) was 5.9. Pre-diabetes for adults starts at 5.7. This is the first time It's ever been high. I suspect that will be a topic of conversation tomorrow. My Vitamin D was low at 15 (bottom of the healthy range is 30). My cholesterol is good, except for pre-diabetic patients they want it better than good. I'll have to talk to the dr. about that. My glucose was high, consistent with A1C being high. My liver enzymes are high, but not as high as 2 years ago. I suspect most of this is a result of high body fat%, and working that down will solve most of those lab results (and help marginally with the blood pressure). It was not easy seeing those results, but I'd rather get them now when it's easier to do something about them.

When I lost my excessive body fat, several of my blood lab readings went from a pre-dangerous or dangerous range, to a normal one. I hope yours does the same!
