I went for a hike/walk with my friend and husband today. We started off hiking and then ended up off trail and slipping and sliding down muddy hills and ended up on walking/biking path. It was exhausting but fun.
I didn’t think we’d make it to the top but we did! This was around 11AM. I probably woke up all the wild life with my heavy breathing and laughter at my heavy breathing.

We were so close to 5 miles!
We decided on a restaurant near our house called On Tap. I purposely looked at their menu online so I could plan out my meal because there are SO MANY bad options there. I was really craving a grilled chicken gyro which I can make only around 10 points so I was looking forward to it. We get there and I don’t see the item on the menu. They had a regular gyro but not the grilled chicken gyro I saw on the online menu. I asked if she could substitute mean and she asked her manager and he said no. Wtf. You can add chicken to salad but not to a piece of pita bread? I was tired, grumpy and hungry from the walk so I just had them give me the gyro meat and got a side salad with Italian Dressing. It was pretty delicious. But I was still being grumpy. And these old geezers kept feeding these ducks french fries which was irking me (the seating is on a deck over looking a local lake). I looked up the points value when I got home. Pretty disappointing.
- Fucking Gyro With Meat I didn’t Want..Ass holes - 16 points!
- Salad With Cheese and Italian Dressing - (just guessing) 4 points.
A friggin 20 point lunch. At least we had hiked/walked earlier so I had to of burned off my breakfast. Oh well. Now I know! I still think they’re dicks.

I know it looks gross with the fruit around it but I didn’t want to waste a plate.
34 out of 27 points used but counting the exercise I’m sure I was under my limit.
The next two weeks are going to be blow tastic working 6 days in a row but under understandable circumstances. A coworker/friend is going to be out of work for an unknown amount of time. She’s been in and out of the hospital for almost a month with severe head and facial pain. Her doctors finally figure out that she has something called Trigeminal Neuralgia. Her doctor said they also call it the suicide disease because some people end their lives because they can’t handle the pain. Hoping she can find some relief (no meds will touch the pain, she just has to hope is subsides to a tolerable level). Shes only 22 years old, too.
May not be blogging daily but I am proud of how I am keeping on track and super proud of the walk today. I’m especially proud of my main squeeze for running for 20 minutes. He was super exhausted from it but he could not do this a week ago. We’re getting there.
