Sorry about yesterday. Was a day full of arguments and farm work and pain.
Up early, awaking with headache. Exercycle: 100 cal in 9:44 minutes. BP 128/81, pulse 87. I know... bad day for bp. Didn't turn on computer so didn't e-mail the readings to doc.
Everybody woke up grumpy, and it just escalated. Thankfully we have family counseling towards the end of Sept because I do NOT like this stress!
Milked the goat, strained, refrigerated. Fed/watered/hayed the critters.
Breakfast: Mesa Sunrise cereal, goat milk, frozen berries
Then made 3 trips to pick up pine boughs (goat snacks!) and firewood, plus misc. The lifting, moving, carrying, tossing ... burned a huge amount of calories. Had a snack after first trip:
Snack: 1 spoonful peanut butter, 1 banana split gogurt
After second trip, lunch:
Lunch: 3 tbsp artichoke hummus, 2 tbs tahini, 10 black sesame rice crackers
Third trip. Brought it back, then went into town to the library, home depot and wally world. Home. By now I was cramping. And (sorry guys!) since I haven't had a period since Feb or Mar, it ain't that. Probably. As of Monday morning, I still don't know. Laid down for a while, then milked the goat amidst a major argument, the 99th of the day (probably NOT an exaggeration), strained, refrigerated, watered the chickens and gave the adults some whey. In, snack...
Snack: 1 tbsp dark choc chips
... because I felt like it! I didn't want any dinner. Just chocolate and drinks, so I did. When Hubby went for a walk, I exercycled.
Exercycle: 115 calories in 12:30 minutes
Just couldn't do any more. Felt weak and in pain. Sorry, Scuttle, but I just couldn't exercycle any more.
Snack: 1 yogurt
Day is done. Today will be better. NO MATTER HOW I FEEL.
Calories eaten: 1243.2
Calories burned by exercycling: 215
Calories burned for whole day: 5532
Puzzling over a title - As I worked on my "instant meals" / "healthy homemade MREs" book this week, I realized I am still very unsure as to what title to use. The companion blog i...
