A Battle Wound, TJ Finds and Riley Walks
See that bruise?! That’s a battle wound from the specialist taking blood.
Every time I have blood work (which is about every 2 weeks these days) I tell them that my veins roll. And every time they say, OK, no problem. Well that bruise above= a problem. It hurts! It’s kind of hard to see it, but I couldn’t get a better picture. The red dot is where they stuck the needle and then she kept pushing up and up. Ugh. Oddly, it bruised down instead of up. It looks like Todd beats me. He doesn’t.
Because if he did, I wouldn’t share with him my new favorite finds at Trader Joes…
I was pleasantly surprised with the PB&J bar. It was the perfect combo of all three ingredients. The pretzel stick deserves a drum roll because it was ahhhhh-mazing! It was more like a pretzel roll than a stick. The picture is a little less than half of the “stick.” It was moist and fresh and the perfect texture. There wasn’t salt on top, but you got little bites of saltiness throughout. OMG. Why hadn’t Trader Joe’s been in Tampa when I was training?! These surely would have been in my carb rotation!
La Croix Cherry Lime. Try this water. Seriously. I’ve mentioned my love of sparkling water before, and this is my new fave flavor. Plus, I really like the tall skinny can.
Of course my life wouldn’t be complete without my daily walk with Ry. Actually, they have been kind of annoying lately, lol. Since I’m not running, I’m not already sweaty when I walk her, so my hair gets gross for no reason. I know… first world problems, but still. And it’s a tease because my heart rate doesn’t get up but I CRAVE that endorphin rush I used to get.
At least Riley is a good girl. She walks right next to me when she’s off the leash and we’re crossing the road. She loves roaming around looking for lizards, but knows not to go too far ahead. I hope my children are as well behaved, haha.
Hope everyone’s having a great week!
