I woke up early today and decided to go to the gym to exercise. 30 degrees, and dark – so no running outside! I set the treadmill for 1 hour and set to jogging. I can’t believe I can jog for an hour without stopping! I never would have thought that was possible a few years ago. Did a little over 5 miles in that time. It felt so good to get totally sweaty LOL!
I really like how my arms look in this picture. You can’t see the loose skin on the biceps and my shoulders have nice definition. Thanks NROLW!
In honor of the apple orchard yesterday, I made a yummy topping for cream of wheat:
In a skillet I put in a little butter (yes – butter!), a sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon and sauteed the apples up. Cooked until they were soft and caramelized and topped the cream of wheat. Sooooo goood!
Early start to the day on all fronts. I worked with minimal breaks to finish up fast so I could start my weekend! That meant leftovers for lunch:
I did have to make time for my afternoon latte, though! I posed it up for fall:
I did finish up early, so my weekend is here! Woo Hoo! We went out for dinner tonight, taking John’s mom to a local place called Maxwells. They have new place mats designed by kids, and I think this one was appropriately placed in front of me:
I wanted something warm and comforting as we are going to get wet and sloppy snow tonight. So I started with a salad:
And the best. chili. ever.
Just a cup, but it was phenomenal! I loved the melted cheese on top. It was nice and thick chili, too. I think I have finally figured out how to take good pictures in a dark restaurant, too! I set the ISO at 3200 to let in as much light as possible. I really should read more on photography
Question: Any exciting plans for your weekend?
