Weekend is here!

Yippee!  Done with work today and my weekend begins!  Any of you who missed it earlier, John hit his goal weight today!  That makes it a good day all around for both of us.  I’ll just keep plugging along LOL!  His reward is new clothes this weekend!

Tomorrow is my last NROLW workout, so I eased up on the exercise today so that I can really give it my all tomorrow.

I was up at 6 am, though, for whatever reason.  I made some delicious oats today:


  • 40 grams of oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3 dates chopped up
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter.

I don’t know why I have never thought to put dates in my oatmeal before.  They were fun!  This bowl needed a little crunch, though.  Maybe with some nuts or toasted coconuts.

Work went by really fast today, even though I had to take a break and go to my rental property for an appraisal.  My tenant was there with his big goofy dog:


I like dogs, but I am not a fan of slobber….. friendly, though.

Lunch was an egg and feta scramble in a wrap.  Quick and easy, if not exciting blog fodder.


I am hungry today.  Or maybe it’s *hangry*.  I think it’s because I did not get enough sleep last night.  I am craving salty stuff, too.

I finished up with work at 3:30 today!  That means my weekend starts!  I did a 3 mile walk to start the weekend.  It takes so much longer to walk 3 miles than run 3 miles :mrgreen:

Passed this sign during the walk:


I have not had eggnog yet this season except for a couple sips of John’s eggnog latte.  My vow is to wait until Thanksgiving!  Gonna make it 😀

We threw together a stir fry tonight using some leftovers in the fridge.  Pork, brown rice, peppers, onions and some soy sauce.  Requesit broccoli for me!  The pear was not as good as yesterday’s, though.


So, the weekend before Thanksgiving and it is very important to eat well.  You can already feel a holiday mood around.  This is not an excuse to overeat the day’s leading up to the actual holiday!  I need to remind myself of that.

Last workout tomorrow.  It’s like I am graduating!

    Congrats on finishing NROLW…are you going to go through it again or just take a break for a while? I love eggnog as well, but it’s definitely something I can say “no” too…sugary candy treats, however, is a whole different topic. :o)

    lol … we bloggers must be easy to spot. We’re the ones out walking with cameras glued to us, taking pics of things other people never notice. 😀
    Love the St. Bernard … he’s HUGE!
    Congratulations on completing the NROLW! What commitment!
    I just for the first time looked at your before pics, Lori. WOW! You’ve come a long way, Baby!
    You give me hope for my own (slow) success!
    Have a fantastic weekend.

    Ohmygosh, we both had dates on our oatmeal yesterday! Isn’t it weird that this is a frequent coincidence with us? I had dates on top again today because it was sooo good yesterday, with some coconut too 😉

    I’m not a fan of big slobbery dogs either. Not to own anyways. My mom has a little poodle and it seems so much easier to care for!

    Good luck on your last workout today!

    Hope you have a great weekend, wish mine started this early. That eggnog sign brought back flashbacks. When I was in my early 20’s I dropped almost 100 lbs but then I entered college and the stress began. It was eggnog season and during the course of 1 month I gained back 21 lbs by drinking gallons and gallons of eggnog. I think it cured me of my eggnog addiction and now when I think of the stuff it kind of makes me go “hmmm nope don’t think I’ll have any of that” lol.

    Congrats on “graduating”! Must be an awesome feeling of accomplishment, huh?

    It does feel all holidayish around here, and I am loving it! I have a menu and a plan for the big T-day so I am actually looking forward to it and not worried about going overboard at all. Not to mention, I’m walking a 5k that morning which will help.
