Normally Friday is the start of my weekend, but it was so slow on Sunday that I am picking up some work today. Not a full day, but just doing bits here and there. I went for another foggy run this morning. The temp was perfect – mid 50s. Dates and nutbutter fuel. I ate the last of the dates this morning. Dates are a food I never knew I loved so much!
I decided on a 4 mile go around. Felt quite good, although the first mile my legs were pretty stiff from yesterday’s workout. Finished in 43:36. My standard pace. I have not been all that motivated to push the tempo that much. Guess I should have made that my September challenge 😀
Feeling like fall a bit, and John ate the last banana, so I opened up the big can of pumpkin (be warned there may be a lot of pumpkin items coming up!). This bowl just screams fall and deserves a large photo:
- 40 grams of oat bran
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 10 grams craisins
- 18 white chocolate chips
So good. Foodgasm.
Oh, and my nice muscular thighs? Turns out they could be my key to long life!
Picked up Pixie today – so happy to have her home. I thought her feet looked big before, but they are swollen today and are like clubs!
Doesn’t this look like some kind of alien being? LOL. Poor kitty.
Cold mornings, but the days have been warming up beautifully. I did work outside including mowing the lawn and string trimming. It was hard to make myself sit inside and do work, so I haven’t done a whole lot. We were trying to decided whether to bike for yogurt or dinner, and dinner won out! That meant lattes at home:
We went the back way around the bike trails, since the pizza place isn’t too far from our house and we wanted a longer ride. Of course, the back way includes some really long hills. Good thing I have those big thighs – they help immensely!
Arrived at Arthurs after going 6 miles where I had a side salad:
And the most wonderful pizza. It’s like a pan pizza, but the dough is not oily at all, soft inside and crispy outside.
John and I shared a small cheese with feta. These pieces look bigger than they are in real life. I ate my half – I was so hungry from all the exercise today!
On a whim, we biked to visit my parents, as they are only a mile or so from Arthurs. I didn’t realize I would get way laid by chocolate chip cookies! Oops. They were good, though. 😀 Thanks Mom!
Relaxing tonight. I am a little tired from all the calorie burn today. We are trying to decide on a hike or a bike ride tomorrow. Weather is going to be mid to upper 70s and sunny. Could it be more perfect? I think not!
September challengers – have a great weekend! Weekends can be hard, but stick to your plan!
Question: Favorite pizza?
