Random Friday Thoughts

Yesterday started off OK then hit a major snag. My car refused to start, and Bruce had to come home from work early so I could take his truck to work. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is going to be an easy fix – I’m just guessing, but I think the starter in my car is toast. Sigh… didn’t really need a car repair bill right now, but there never is a good time! I went back to work last night for the first time in 18 days – it was a great vacation, but it was good to get back to work.

I made the best sweet potato soup this week. Next time I’ll take lots of pictures and post the recipe; it turned out amazing! I love soups made of things like squash and sweet potatoes (white potatoes too, actually). And all winter long I’m always so cold, soup is a major staple for me. A soup full of veggies is perfect!

So far this week, I have done weights, run, biked, and swam. Best week in a long time! And the week isn’t over yet.

I’m still struggling with my food – I’m eating a lot less, and much healthier choices, but I’m still craving sugar like crazy. I wonder how long this is going to last?

It has been -40 here this week…. I want to go back to Florida. Or anywhere where it doesn’t snow. 🙂 It’s hard to think about running a spring half marathon when it’s -40 outside!

A not so amazing discovery… after working for 10 hours, at 5 am I start to ramble a little. So with that thought, I’ll post my goals and head for bed!

Goals: 2.5/5 Thursday. 1 blog post, caught up at work, and 1 workout. I did not make my list or balance my chequebook.

Weekend Goals:

1. 2 blog posts
2. 1 workout
3. Create task list
4. Balance chequebook
5. Finish reading 1 book
6. Complete 2 items from task list

    Cravings suck.. I get it sometimes, but the farther I get away from it, the better it is. Then I’ll eat something, and it starts all over again :p

      Yes, exactly! I’m really struggling with sweet stuff right now – a single taste of anything sweet and I want more and more.

    I had sweet potato soup today at the work restaurant and it was amazing. It was the first time I’ve ever had it. I look forward to seeing your recipe because that is definitely something I would love to make at home.

      I loved this soup, and it reheated nicely too. I hope to make it this week and post the pictures and recipe. 🙂

    oh please share the sweet potato soup recipe! i love sweet potatoes. Never really had them much until about a year ago, now I can’t eat them enough. Sugar cravings suck big time. I’m still going through sugar withdrawals. Usually it doesn’t last this long. Hope yours goes away quickly.
