I feel good today. My hair worked, my make-up worked, I feel like I look cute, and my muscles have that nice feeling like they’ve been used extensively, but not so painfully that it’s impossible to walk. Even the Avon products I’ve been using for the past couple of weeks seem to be delivering the advertised results.
The messed up part about even writing the statement, “I feel good,” is that it’s a novel enough feeling to warrant notice. It’s interesting to have a goal that specifically includes taking feeling good for granted.
Oh, speaking of advertised results, I’ve been taking Align for, well, the specific conditions that it’s supposed to help. I noticed several folks ’round these here parts suffer from IBS or other various digestive problems (well, I didn’t notice it FIRST HAND, they mentioned it). Now, I don’t tout a product unless it actually works for me, and I’ve gotta say, this stuff has actually made me feel a lot better. It took about three weeks of taking it daily to really start seeing a difference, but now it seems that “things” are really on their way toward functioning, erm, correctly.
GEEZ, TMI is hard to avoid when you’re talking about poo.
Here’s a question for you all. Is it better to work out for 20 minutes on the elliptical machine at Level 3, or 30 minutes at Level 2? A faster workout that pushes me more, or a longer workout that isn’t as strenuous? I alternate between the two, depending on a) how much time I have; and b) what I feel up to doing that day. Sometimes I even do 30 minutes at Level 3, but then I collapse in an incoherent heap and beg for a Klondike Bar. On my particular elliptical machine, there isn’t much difference at all, that I can tell, between Level 1 and Level 2. Level 3, though, HOO BOY. FEEL THE BURN.
I’m having a love affair with roasted vegetables. Asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts (and WHY is there an “s” on the end of “brussel”?), zucchini, and summer squash have all found themselves tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, and crushed garlic and stuck in my oven (425 degrees) over the past few weeks. Even CALVIN has been enjoying them (except for the brussel(s) sprouts, which I think I undercooked).
I’m dying to try pattypan squash next, anybody have a good recipe?
