learning to eat, cook, and live healthier one day at a time.

Helloooo!

I hope your Thursday is going well. Mine is pretty swell so far.

I’ve been battling strange stomach pains lately. It’s happened a few times in the past week just after I eat breakfast. It happened really bad last Wednesday to the point where I really couldn’t do much all day. Well, yesterday it happened again but not quite as bad. I have to assume it’s something I’m eating but my breakfasts haven’t included anything new or abnormal.

Today I was really in the mood for a classic breakfast: eggs, toast, and turkey bacon.

On the days I’ve gotten sick, I’ve had egg whites topped with cheese, and a piece of peanut butter and banana toast. I’m nervous that it’s my peanut butter that has been making my stomach hurt, since that’s the main thing I omitted today. But peanut butter is supposed to help soothe upset stomachs so I’m all kinds of confused.

I hope these strange unpredictable pains don’t turn up anymore, but enough about my illnesses. I’m feeling fine today and am excited to complete the second day of a workout plan I started yesterday.

I found this plan on bodybuilding.com, which is usually my go-to when I’m looking for workout plan inspiration. I know how to build my own plan, but sometimes it’s more fun to find something new and exciting. I like that it balances weights with cardio pretty well, but I will most likely tweak some things to add some HIIT cardio here and there.

Today isĀ  a legs day which I always dread since I know I won’t be able to walk for the next day or two. Woo!

In other news…Mike and I carved pumpkins this weekend.

Yes, my pumpkin has the call letters of the TV station I work at. Good thing I like my job, right? Last year I did the NBC peacock which was a little cooler if you ask me.

It’s a little toasty for mid-October in Sioux Falls right now, but I’m still embracing the fall spirit and making one of my favorite Crockpot fall meals this evening: Crockpot Cream Cheese Chili

creamcheese chiliOhhhh yes. Rick and creamy.

Alright, I’m off to the gym!
