shes2smart Posted August 22, 2007 Author Share Posted August 22, 2007 Playin' Wit Mah Mental Blox Went to the gym last night, did a little more than I did Saturday and it felt ok. Slowly getting back into it. In a way, it was good to have the enforced time off from any sort of exercise after the appendectomy. Since there was really no choice in being inactive, there was no mental battle between "I should exercise/I don't want to exercise." The lack of that battle meant I could actually pay attention to what it felt like...and after a week of inactivity, I was getting antsy. I actually WANTED to go do something physically taxing. Dunno how long this particular revelation will last, but I'll be greatful for it while it does. Made link removed for dinner last night using tomatoes and basil from my garden. It was quite tasty, although I will cut back on the crushed pepper flakes next time. Not a fan of spicy-hot and even the small amount of pepper flakes in this was a bit more than I'd ideally like. It's definitely a dish where you only want to make as much as you're likely to consume in one meal, though. I don't think the leftovers would hold up real well. For starters, the bacon wouldn't stay nice and crispy with leftovers of this...and the crispiness of the bacon is part of the appeal in the finished dish. I still have 3 ripe tomatoes, though....and a lot of green ones still on the vines in the garden. As enjoyable as the Tomato and Bacon Pasta was, I don't think I want it for dinner two nights in a row. For as slow and crappy as Monday was, the week is actually going fairly quickly. That's good...but I still wouldn't turn down a multi-million dollar lottery win. Step one toward that? Actually buy a ticket. I think I may be going wrong by neglecting to do that.....
