Faves and Raves Hallowe’en Edition

Are you planning a fun Hallowe’en? 

Happy Halloween

No costumes for us this year… but we are expecting one special little Trick or Treater so The Captain made sure to pick up some candy for her... his favorites! I have not been tempted at all, thankfully.  I am keeping my nose to the low carb grindstone and quite happy with it all.

I am very happy ecstatic that today is our last Metabolic Aftershock workout in the series.  In a few minutes I will be getting out the mats and starting up the final video in the program. It is a toughie and we will be celebrating its conclusion.

Next week we can do some walks, some runs, and some strength work with weights before heading off on Sunday for a week in Sin City….  I am looking forward to the hustle and bustle!  then we can start a new program when we return.

But I do have one little hurdle to get over first… on Monday I am going to spend the morning in the hospital having a colonoscopy.  My GI doc is helping me get to the bottom of my disgestive disorder and we are going to find out what is causing it, if it takes years!  I am also going to be having a small bowel CT scan at some point.  So an altered food plan for me for a few days and I just have to suck it up and endure.  No nuts or seeds for 4 days prior, and that is hard!  Good thing I have PB2 so I can at least have some peanut butter that way.

On a brighter note, I am in love with my new Android phone and getting better at using its camera and other features… it’s all a bit scary but I can see why people spend so much time on them now.  The Captain, who isn’t the least bit interested in social media, remains true to his Blackberry… he doesn’t even want to know what he’s missing.

I found some very interesting posts this week… here are a few of them:

  • Letting Go of Goals at Life as a Running Mom
    • Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture.

And finally, a video today… even though I am not a huge fan of vlogs… this one is pretty good:
  • How to Count Macros at FitFluential -  Dr. Mike Roussell
    • A very basic explanation for those who don’t know.
