I missed work on Thursday and Friday because of the pain I was in and the pain meds I was on. I slept a lot and read a lot.
However, yesterday was a full day. Middle Sister had a soccer game in Decorah, a beautiful college town. My brother-in-law attended Luther College in Decorah, so I have been to the town before and enjoyed some of the things people come there to do. Yesterday our trip was short but we still made it to the trout hatchery and Mabe's for pizza (which I had none of since I am plugging away on the Whole 30).
The Eagle's nest. There is one adult eagle in the nest in this picture. Our view from the ground wasn't nearly as good as this one, but it was fun to see in person.
We ended our evening with a movie:
I hadn't seen the first Pitch Perfect movie, so I know there were a few things I missed in this one because of that, but I still really liked it.
So now today I have a lot of cleaning to do that is taking a much longer time than I want. I have school stuff to think about. I might try and ride the Airdyne bike which seems like it might be the one form of exercise that won't make my finger throb.
I mentioned The Whole30 before. It is going fine. I wish I could drink a water with a flavor, but can't. I haven't cooked the last part of the week which has really restricted my food choices. I am hoping I can get a few things whipped up for the week and that will help a lot. I have eaten a lot of scrambled eggs and ground beef with mashed avocado. Although fruit is on the list of approved foods it isn't supposed to be eaten all the time. I will admit to eating it on Thursday and Friday when I felt like I needed some sugar in my system.
Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!
