Well, it might be named "Turn it Up Tuesday", in my Daze of the Weak, but nothin's gettin' turned up right now. My right knee (the one that is still original equipment) is swollen and stiff. I had been having such good luck with it not acting up I had forgotten that it was my bad knee. Damn!! So I am having to alter my cardio slightly today. Instead of a stroll on the "dreadmill", I'll take a leisurely bike ride on the recumbent.
And believe me, I'd best be getting that cardio in, cuz The Perfect Child has already done two days of 30 min. +. However, I do have a nice cushion on points in the challenge. I am currently up by +4.845 points. That will not allow me to rest on my laurels (a.k.a. my big fat arse) but it does give me a chance to get my knee to recuperate a bit.
All in all, my extended weekend was really a good one. Three days of golf, and one day included a long walk at the Farmers' Market. Yes, I did go to the Farmers' Market even tho' I had my CSA delivery on Friday. I heard the week before that a vendor had morel mushrooms for sale at the market, and I HAD to find that guy. I DID!!! I had the most wonderful plate of morel mushrooms ever. I remember them so fondly from my childhood, and they were every bit as good as I recalled. Might have over stepped on the caloric count, but it was worth every calorie I spent. After all, that was the day I worked off the equivalent of 650 calories. It was worth the splurge, believe me.....AND I have absolutely no regrets for going over my 1500.
I now am quite sure my brain might be shrinking!! I am not, by nature, a hypochondriac, but today in the paper I read that people "of a certain age" could be losing brain size because their vitamin B-12 intake is not sufficient. I am concerned because, along with being in the age group at "risk", I figure over the course of time, I've killed many a brain cell with alcohol, too. I think it's kind of a minor miracle I can converse in a coherent manner now. With this new info, I'm worried that in a year or two I might not be able to count my calories by myself. Very troubling, I must say. :)
Now, armed with what might be diminished brain power, I am off to do my daily chores. I certainly hope I can remember what they are.
