Boy howdy it is hot and humid! I was feeling fatigued, so I took yesterday off from doing anything. This morning I decided to go out for a run since it was early and hopefully not too hot. Just 3 miles (haha – I can’t believe I wrote that! I still can’t believe I’m a runner). It felt pretty icky for the first mile, I really do not like running in humidity. Doesn’t matter if the temp is in the mid 60s – humidity sucks! And then my battery died on my MP3 player after that first mile, too. Oh dear! It was on my pace running from jogtunes.com (episode 23, my favorite!), which I was looking forward to doing. So, I just plodded along and finished. I’m glad I did it early, though, because it started getting really steamy when the sun broke through!
Came back and made what looks like a boring bowl, but was really quite delicious:
- 40 grams oat bran
- 12 grams chocolate PB2
- 1 small banana
- 4 grams dark cocoa powder
Delicious! I let it cool down to mostly room temperature, which seemed to make it tastier.
Pixie said “Don’t bother me, it’s too hot!”
She is so durn cute when she sleeps like this! (Yes, that is my foot – don’t you love my work attire?)
Lunch was something different. I got some Laughing Cow wedges at the store the other day. I forgot how much I love these (well, it is cheese, after all!). I had a hardboiled egg in the fridge and decided to make a mini bagel toasted with the cheese and the egg sliced on it. Really good!
Okay, I am now in love with a new bar – the TLC pumpkin spice bar!
It’s not a protein bar, so at least it isn’t packed with soy. The topping is made from dates, I can tell the flavor, plus pumpkin and spices on a softish granola bar. Yum. Paired with my latte.
John grilled up some chicken for dinner, and I was cutting up the pineapple while sauteing my broccoli. I had a great idea to add the pineapple to the broccoli, then chopped up the chicken and added some Country Bob’s sauce.
Can I tell you how amazing this was?? I swear that fresh pineapple and canned pineapple are almost 2 different fruits. They taste so different.
Pretty flowers I got from the garden. I am trying to clear a path so people can actually walk through the path LOL!
I liked the pineapple so much that I am having a snack with it while I write this post 😀
Tomorrow I start my first day at my new gym. Went today and got signed up. It was a little testosterone heavy while I was there in the late afternoon – so I for sure know to avoid it at that time! I asked when the least crowded times are, and I should be safe around 7am. This gym has a definitely different feel than the Y. Guess they need a lady around there to show them how it’s done
Storms are rolling in, so better sign off!
Don’t miss the Fullbites giveaway post here! Ends Thursday!
Question: What do you do different for exercise when it is really hot out?
