Heartburn and other stuff

When it is TTOTM I have been experiencing really bad heartburn for a day or two. This time was no different. And it isn't from eating too much. I think that most women feel tighter during this time. I'm no different. The heartburn is beyond horrible though. I had never had it before and honestly could live without having it again. I have found two things that help - Pepcid AC and hot tea.

I had planned to go to the gym on Friday. I was only supposed to work a half-day, but ended up having to work the entire day. So that put a wrinkle in my plan. Let's be real though, I could have gone, but I didn't. I didn't workout Saturday or Sunday either! Over the whole week though I worked out 4 times. I can live with that.
  • Monday - 70 mins
  • Tuesday - 90 mins
  • Wednesday - 60 mins
  • Thursday - 60 mins
  • Friday - Nope
  • Saturday - Nope
  • Sunday - Nope
Tomorrow is a new week. I will be getting up in the morning and going to the gym. I made this black-bean soup today. It was really good and best of all easy. Here it is...

Spicy Black bean Soup

1 onion
4 garlic cloves
3 cans black beans
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp red pepper
1 can broth
1 can Rotel
1 can sweet corn

Chop up the onion. (I used chopped garlic as well rather than the garlic cloves and put in about 4 teaspoons.) Drain and risk the black beans. Drain the sweet corn. Throw everything into a pot. Bring it to a boil. Then turn it down and simmer for about 20 mins.

For a 1 1/2 cup serving it is 3 WW points

I am *really* tight at TTOM, too. I think it just goes with the territory.

I had a particularly yucky bout with reflux this month - waking up with barf in my mouth, even. good times.

thankfully, within a few days it seems to even out.

glad you're posting again....I've been pretty lax!
