Gorgeous fall day today. I wanted to do a run outside and it was in the mid 40s. Perfect for running. I wanted to do 5 miles, so I set out for that and fueled up with some POM nectarine that the Pom Wonderful people sent me. This is really good! I am not a big juice drinker, even though I really like juice. As I have said before, I don’t like to drink my calories. This was for prerun fuel and is tasty. Much sweeter than regular POM juice – it almost tastes peachy!
I was going on the 2nd loop of running and almost thought about doing 6 miles instead of 5, but my thighs were complaining a little. It really can take a while to fully recover from big events, I guess.
Had a fabulous bowl of cream of wheat this morning after I got back inside:
With pumpkin butter, cranberry sauce, cinnamon and white chocolate chips!
Busy with work again. They weren’t kidding when they told us October is a busy month. It’s nice to have work. It was a little sad today, though. One file was a very long one where the doctors were having discussions with the parents about removing life support on their 11 year old son, and they did not want to do it. Sometimes the job is tough at times.
I am in waffle sandwich mode again. This time it was chicken with cheddar cheese, apples and cranberry sauce.
Warm and toasty! I am liking the waffles for bread.
John made some scrumptious bars yesterday from Megan’s Munchies:
Only he used white chocolate chips instead of regular (hence why they made their presence in my breakfast!) This made a good snack with my afternoon latte.
So, now I am done with the duathlon, and the season of outdoor fitness events is winding down. It sort of leaves me at loose ends, as I do like to have some sort of goal in mind. I do have NROLW to finish by the end of the year and then it will have to be more indoor gym stuff. I do run outside in winter when the sidewalks are clear of snow, but I do have limits 😀
I’m thinking I might try to be serious about knocking off at least 5 more pounds (10 would be super). I am just not really sure if I want to do the work it will take to do that. Know what I mean? I have become pretty complacent here, and with my activity goals I have been pursuing since March – weight loss has not been a primary focus (and was not as feasible with hard training, even though that seems like it would help). We have just booked a cruise for the beginning of February, and maybe that would be a good goal.
Pink item of the day!
(This is soap colorant, btw).
I won the football picks last weekend (Yeah!!) – so it was my choice for dinner. A new crepe place opened up in Glens Falls just last week, so I wanted to go there. It’s a very tiny place, and tucked out of the way. Everything is made from scratch.
I chose a fall-inspired crepe:
Pork tenderloin with mashed sweet potatoes and a blackberry sauce. It was a little on the sweet side, but quite good.
John had the mexican crepe with black beans, cheese, and chicken.
We split a dessert crepe, since the meals were light. This had whipped cream, praline nuts and cranberry sauce:
Thumbs up for this place, and quite affordable. Okay, I have had cranberries at 3 meals today :O Somebody smack me LOL!
We are totally inspired to try to make crepes at home. Maybe this weekend!
Jeez – this post was all over the place, sorry about that! I swear my mind feels like this right now. I really have to focus!
