Nothing too exciting yesterday.
The roast I made turned out well. My husband used to make one that involved a lot of butter and honestly was so rich it made us all kind of sick. I used a clean recipe I found and last night he said "I have to say, this roast feels a lot better on my stomach!" Same, hubby. I don't know much about his recipe except that it involves copious amounts of butter, but mine did take some work, or more than I wanted to put in for a crockpot meal when I was tired. But it was worth it!
I took the dog for a walk after dinner. It was short, less than a mile. I HAVE to do something there, either work harder on her leash training or get her to a trainer. I say this all the time and never do it. Walking her is miserable. Running with her is not bad, but that just makes walking with her worse because now that's her expectation. I'm still trying to rest my ankle from overuse and she was pulling hard the whole time trying to run. So that was a miserable outing. We finally have the money for a trainer with my husband back to work so maybe should go that route. Either way, I have to solve this problem. She could be a great trail companion. But I need to show her how. And maybe someone needs to show ME how.
I have my bag packed to hit the trail after work. I'll see how I feel by 5. I'm on day 2 of feeling completely exhausted. I hope I'm not getting sick. And have a bigger hike planned with a friend tomorrow. It wouldn't be the worst thing to take today off, get some rest, and spend some time with my husband who is off today. We'll see.
