You know how yesterday I was saying how I didn’t get anything done? Today was a whole nuther ballgame! I was raining when I got up (Hello Ida remnants), so I had to wait a bit until my gym opened up at 8am. I had a Zone bar for a preworkout snackie. Then off to the gym and hit the treadmill for 5 miles. It felt good to really break a sweat. You know you are on the treadmill a long time when you see people come in, watch them work out and then they leave, all while you are doing the same thing 😛
I arrived home ready to devour my arm and commenced to cooking some Banana, cashew butter, and apple butter oats.
These were fantastic! John was laughing at me because I kept saying “yum” while I was eating them. Extra hunger = extra good taste.
Off to shop, passed by Great Escape on our way.
Hit the outlet malls – serious sales going on today.
And found a coffee mug that’s just right for me!
We were hungry at this point and headed to Samantha’s where one of the soups of the day was Squash and apple bisque! I just had to have a bowl with some fresh made wheat bread.
Soooooo good. It was a soupy kind of day. Then it was off to the mall for more shopping. We actually got a nice start on the Christmas stuff that we are buying. We will make other things for people as well.
Took a break for this!
I had a skim latte. John got an eggnog latte. I am trying to wait until Thanksgiving before I have one, but I had a couple sips of his. Eggnog is like crack to me. I could bathe in its creamy goodness 😯
More productivity with grocery shopping and then a stop at the smokehouse to stock up on meat. We got chicken breast, ground beef, turkey breast, boneless pork chops, and bacon. There are some great benefits to shopping locally if you can. Boneless chicken breasts at $2.09 per pound! I love that we can support local farmers and the local processor all in one fell swoop.
All of this happened by 4 pm! We were on a roll.
Obviously had some fresh meat for dinner – chicken with a slice of bacon and laughing cow! Yum!!! It’s amazing how just 1 slice of bacon can add so much flavor.
And a mondo amount of broccoli!
I am going to relax tonight with the hubby and watch movies. One of those rainy nights just perfect for that!
Have a great night!
