almost back to normal
(Not really, but I can dream.) I've been stuffing myself with red meats and liver again to give me energy. I decided to get creative and boost the deliciousness of liver. Yesterday, I had fried liver, with kale, topped with pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut for lunch. And for dinner, it was fried liver, with pumpkin seeds and crumbled pecans, with a side of sauteed baby spring mix. I gave myself the idea of pecans from my jocular crested pecan post. Probably no one else would eat it, but I liked it.
My dad had been after me to fix his laptop all week. I tried explaining that I wasn't in a mood to fix it when I couldn't even get out of bed. That stalled him for a few days, until he traded me some liver for my time. I asked for chopped liver, but somehow that's harder to find than it should be. I took pity on him because I know how frustrated I get when I have no ready access to all the world's data at my fickle fingertips. Plus it was my dad, so I didn't need to get prettied up or worry about my house being dirty or any of the myriad of things one worries about when having someone over.
I even threw in some exercise this week. I texted my Sensei to warn him prior to our class that I was, to put it bluntly, a fkn mess. He's known me for years, so he said come anyway, and he would fix me or at least catch me when I passed out. He massaged and manipulated my neck for a few minutes, which seemed to have helped. And then we did a bunch of shoulder and arm exercises to work on that area. Plus abs, because abs. I had to modify some of the exercises, and I used lighter weights than normal, but I'm glad I went.
Today I have big, big plans. Steak and more sauteed greens. And perhaps a book if I can focus. Or maybe catch up on more TV shows if I can't. I've watched way too much TV this week, but my mind has been mush. I was making stupid mistakes and feeling dumber by the day. I know you're curious what kind of silly shows I watch when I need to relax and tranquilize myself. Here in no special order are some of the shows I watched: Downton Abbey, The Magicians, X-Files, Younger, Supergirl, Agent Carter, and Bob's Burgers.
Mmm, burgers. More later, steak now!
