Ok, it’s been about a week and a half since we got back from our trip and I’ve still got a few pounds to lose.
E.J. was able to drop all of his trip weight within about a week – lucky bastard. I did everything he did and mine not only came off slower, but are still sticking around. I think this is what they mean when they say it’s harder for women to lose weight than men.
That being said, I have been running every other day or so without too much trouble, and and I’m happy to no longer feel swollen all over. My right knee gave me a little grief after my 5k this morning, but I’ll give it an extra day or two before my next run and it will hopefully be good to go.
On the cooking front, this weekend I went the lazy route because I felt like I needed some quality time with my fur baby, Buddy, who really missed us when we were gone on our trip (how can I resist that face?). I threw some ribs in the smoker which got paired with sweet potato halves in the instant pot. Then made this Italian Pot Roast in the slow cooker, and one of E.J.s favorites, the Instant Pot Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala paired with caulirice.
Friday will be the big traditional St. Paddy’s Day viewing of The Boondock Saints with Irish Dinner. I am so glad Sam’s & Costco now carry almond flour for a reasonable price, because I’ve got about 4 loaves of Irish Soda Bread to make Thursday and Friday!
