A few small steps

February 17, 2008

I am far from being able to say I’m back in the swing of things, but a few healthy habits are coming back.

Yesterday I spent the whole day with my DH in an impromptu but wonderful day together just the two of us. It was really nice. We started with brunch in a fabulous cafe at Saint Germain, then did some jewelery window shopping at Place Vendome, bought his late Christmas present, did some household shopping for lamps and kitchen stuff near Madeleine, then headed to an exhibition that closes soon – the line was too long so we saw something else at the same place, which was fun because it was spontaneous. We talked about maybe seeing a movie but the timing was off and nothing he wanted to see was showing but Juno was – and I wanted to see it so he went home and I saw a movie, then we had dinner and watched a classic on DVD later. It was a really nice day, especially so because it was all spontaneous and unexpected, and also because this was the weekend we were supposed to be away together in Bilbao – but we had canceled earlier this week due to the IUI on Friday (when we’d have been on the plane) and just too much stress in general to be able to enjoy getting away for a weekend.

The only thing I didn’t do that I had wanted to was go for a walk – but that’s okay, the day was great I don’t regret it in the least.

Today I hit the market for a few things, and am now well-stocked for the week. I even just cooked up 2 heads of broccoli and am making a soup of Jerusalem artichokes so I’ll have that around too. I cut up pineapple and bought clementines and hopefully that will keep me on the healthy-snacking course for the next few days.

The sun is again shining brightly and I think I’m going to head out for a walk instead of dealing with a work project I should be doing…
