Friday night two of our kids (one is away at a retreat) and my husband and I went to the Kane County Cougars game. Since the Cougars are now the Single A affiliate of the Cubs, the ballpark itself has undergone slight changes – the concession stands now have Sheffield, Addison or Wrigley in the titles and you see Cubs’ logos around. Kinda fun and I’m sure it’s great marketing for them, being right in the suburbs and all.
Unfortunately, we sat just to the left of an aisle and spent the entire game looking at people’s butts, because apparently sitting still and watching a game is frowned upon in this establishment!!! Lesson learned. I will pick seats to the RIGHT of the aisle next time.
sunshiny me and the boy enjoying some minor league bball.
The rest of the weekend, I listened to the Cubs games while balancing the checkbooks and cleaning, watched some boxing and read the latest issue of ESPN magazine. And of course I watched the Blackhawks!!! Oh, these overtime games – they’re going to stress us all out! Good sports weekend overall. Actually, super good sporty weekend – with lots of time to listen and watch sports. I don’t think that was too much?!? I also worked out doing weights and treadmill time.
On the eating front: I’m five days from being finished with the Whole30. Coincidentally, I had to have my potassium checked with a blood test for a doctor’s appointment, and it was high. This morning at the appointment, she was questioning whether I workout at all, whether I hydrate and drink water at all and how I eat. OH MY WORD.
People, I cannot undersell how discouraging this was. Here I am, having eaten the healthiest I have in forever and my doctor literally said, “I don’t know if that way of eating is the right choice.” Oh, and by the way, “stop eating bananas.” So, yes, all my little dissenters, you can feel all proud of yourselves for thinking, Seeeee???? It doesn’t matter how you eat, we’re all gonna die and have high potassium levels.
Now – for realz? You know what I did? I came home and ate some eggs right away so I wasn’t hungry. Because I was thisclose to having a little breakdown and just giving up with only FIVE DAYS TO GO. So I filled up. Then I texted my friend who knows this particular doctor and complained and then I told my husband. The End. Tips for keeping it realz when you’re on a mission: ASK FOR HELP/ENCOURAGEMENT and TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO MAKE A GOOD/RIGHT CHOICE. Don’t delay, make a good choice IMMEDIATELY to renew your resolve. Regarding the doctor, it’s not a big deal, and frankly, I think she was overreacting and I still maintain my eating habits have been healthy lately and I think the spike in potassium was caused by the caffeine and banana I had eaten that morning. Lesson learned. Carry on.
