In addition to this gluten-free thing, I have been meaning to try to get back into shape and lose weight. I have had several health problems over the past few years that have made it hard for me to work out, but I am sick of letting that hold me back. So my goal is to start doing more activity and have at least 2 structured work-outs a week to start. Plus, I want to eat a good amount of calories, so I am tracking all of this on LiveStrong.com, and hopefully... I'll make something happen.
I figure, if I talk about it on here it will help to keep me accountable. We'll see.
Anyway, in other news...
I nominated myself for an award! I figured, why not? So I did it.
Also, the animals have all been alternating between super cute and sweet and just plain naughty within the last few days! So that's been interesting. For example: Sam and Binks were cuddling and being all cute, licking each other and being good. Then I decided to give the cats tuna, and Ava came too, and they all shared and it was adorable. Then Sam knocked over the kitchen trash can and got garbage everywhere. The worst were the coffee grounds, which Jezebelle (J.'s puppy) kept trying to eat. Annoying. Then they were all being pretty good, until Sam went outside and sat in the driveway right in front of Will's car... while Will was trying to pull into the driveway! So I got him back inside, where he and the other cats were tormented by Jezebelle who wanted to chase and bite them. Then, Jez took things to a whole new level of naughty by peeing on the couch... in my favorite spot. Grrr....
But then just a few minutes ago, Jezebelle and I bonded in the kitchen. She followed my commands: sit, lay down, stay... and then we played and snuggled. And Sam was laying in the bedroom with Will, while Ava and Binks cuddled with A. as he napped on the couch. So that was all very sweet.
But now, as I write... it's all going crazy again.
That's what we get for living in this crazy Bohemian zoo though, I suppose. And honestly, I wouldn't trade it for anything... not even the ability to eat gluten. ;)
