Dinner out tonight, so I wanted to do a longer run to assist with that LOL. Fueled up with some POM coffee. This is good for fuel. Goes down easy and has 7 grams of protein!
Wish I could report on how well it lasted because my run got waylaid by this after 2 miles:
Found this little guy on the side of the road, very cold and weak. I noticed a tiny puff on the ground as I was jogging. At first I thought he was dead, but as I got next to him, he lifted his head and tried to get up. So – I of course had to stop the run and bring him home. He perked right up and found his voice after some mush food and warmth. I don’t know if he wandered from someone’s house or if he was dumped. He is about 4 weeks old and too small to have gone far on his own. He is pretty dirty, so I am thinking he was unwanted 🙁 or just feral. If he was owned by someone, he is in terrible shape.
Anyone want a kitten? We can’t keep him – it’s bad enough to have the one we do with John being allergic. Local no-kill shelter is full. I’m trying hard to find him a home.
That cut my run short, so I just stayed in for breakfast. The Silver Palate oats again, this time cooked with a banana.
Love these! They are halfway between rolled oats and steel cut.
I ended up going out before lunch after I finished my files to do the rest my run. I did 3 miles the 2nd time, so somewhere around 5 to 5.5 miles today. How’s that for dedication? 😀

I’ve been feeling great about my lifestyle this month. I am doing well towards my personal challenge and it feels good. It’s funny how when you are a much lower weight a few pound loss really is noticeable – whereas when I was 250 pounds, you couldn’t tell.
So, John and I do football picks each week, and the loser of the picks has to buy the winner dinner out. I lost this week (by 1 game), and John’s pick was Raul’s Mexican.
This place does not give free chips and salsa (thank you!!). So we started by splitting a quesadilla:
All the meat is grilled here and has a wonderful flavor. I had the Oaxacan tacos, which was grilled chicken, caramelized onions, mole sauce and lettuce and soft shell. A bit of sour cream on top. So delicious and flavorful!
John had fish tacos, and the fish of the day was swordfish (also grilled)
We walked around town for a while as it was an art walk. Then we stopped for a coffee – and I managed to not have any of the baked goods!
Got home and fed the little guy. For a tiny thing, he has a big mouth with constant meowing. I hope he makes it.
Fellow first time triathlete coming up! Wish PTG good luck!
