08.05.12: 10-Mile Run – COMPLETED
How do the weekends go by so fast?!? Overall it was a great, low-key, weekend. I did do a lot of cooking and laundry. Unfortunately, it was too hot to take the baby out and P also had to go to his brother’s to let the dogs out. They’re still in Hawaii (well, actually they return today). Yesterday I was feeling a bit under the weather. Well, first, the lack of sleep. Lili had a rough night and kept us up between 11-2 in the morning. I was supposed to run with the girls but Courtney had a cold so we canceled the run. I had to wait for Lili to take her nap at 10:30 to go for a run and what an awful run it was for me. I had to stop at least 3x to throw up. The combination of the heat and feeling dehydrated did not work well for me. When I was done, Lili was up. I made lunch, fed the baby, ate and then showered. I felt achy and almost like a fever was about to come on. I drank a lot of water. My stomach was all sorts of messed up. I could hardly eat a thing. I wanted a glass of wine, but stopped myself thinking that it would only make me feel worse. I wanted some cookies, but Pedro told me that I’d be paying for it. He’s probably right, but I was HUNGRY.
It didn’t hit me till this morning that my girlfriend’s husband had a stomach virus and was sick all weekend. He has been vomiting all weekend. I’m wondering if I caught something from him. My stomach is still off this morning, but it’s definitely a huge improvement from yesterday. Of course the turkey panini was probably not a wise choice. I should have gotten a soup or something.
Anyhow, Lili has become quite the expert in trying to escape her playpen. The evidence is right here.
After a few hours of playing with her, I begged her to take a nap so that I could rest also. We took nearly a 2-hour nap. When we woke up, P had to leave to take care of the dogs. I decided to try a new recipe from Pinterest.
Baked Apricot Chicken *I cut the recipe in half.
4-6 chicken thighs (I used skinless. The recipe says skinless).
1/2 cup of French Onion Dip
1/2 cup of Onion Soup Mix
1/2 cup of Apricot Preserves
Preheat oven to 350. Mix French Onion dip, onion soup mix and apricot preserves in a bowl. Then pour over the chicken. Bake uncovered for 50-60 minutes.
I ate it with a side of quinoa and brown rice. It was delicious, though I am sure I would have appreciated it more if my stomach wasn’t all types of messed up.
Lili & mommy watching the Olympics while waiting for dinner.
Have you been watching the Olympics? I did catch most of the Women’s Marathon yesterday morning and tennis. Then I watched the Bolt win and Richards-Ross. I watched women’s gymnastics and a lot of the swimming. So many great events this weekend. What are your favorite events?
