Sunday snow and bagels!

Glad you all liked the granola recipe!  It’s so good and spicy.

I slept in again until 7:30!  Yippee!  Out for the usual Sunday bagel, only my mother met us there after she got out of church!


It’s always fun to have company at bagels.  We all had a gingerbread bagel, too – triplets!


It was looking so nice and sunny and not cold, I thought I would be able to sneak in a run outside after lunch.  Speaking of, I decided I need a dose of vitamin S to make up for the pralines yesterday:


  • 3 big handfuls of vitamin spinach
  • 1 tablespoon Barlean’s Omega Swirl
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup fresh pumpkin
  • pumpkin pie spice and 1 cup of water

Blended up to make this:


I deliberately did not put ice in this because I was already a little chilled and didn’t want to make it worse.

No go on the run, as it looked like this an hour later 😯


It’s actually snowing, but you can’t see that in this picture.  This is my view while working.  Work went by quickly today.  Sundays are like that, not sure why.  I’ll take it, though!  Break of a latte with a granola bar:


Doing really, really well on snacking today.  Yesterday, not so good.  I have to really focus now and not let the scale creep up the next few weeks.  That is just not acceptable to me.  I am going to set some mini weekly goals to do this week to keep that under control.  Something to sit and ponder on tonight.

Keeping in an extra veggie theme, I made a Flatout wrap with chicken, laughing cow, a touch of blackberry jam and salad mix.


With a side of broccoli and a forelle pear.  I liked the blackberry jam on this wrap.  Sweet and savory, although I think it would have been excellent with maybe a sharp cheddar instead of the laughing cow.

Since I didn’t run yesterday and not today (not even walking in this weather), I decided to dust off the old DVDs and get in a good workout!


Love the Firm.  I have not done these since probably last February?  Right before I joined the Y last year.  It was a little scary with the tree up, ornaments were a shakin’ !

Ornament of the day:


Does this not say it all?  My name on a coffee cup.  Too bad this is thimble-sized or I would drink out of it :mrgreen:

Don’t forget to check in for the giveaway tomorrow, although I hate to say it is open only to US residents (if I were shipping it, all would be entered).

    I am devastated. No giveaway for me. Hopefully I can get over it.

    I had some spinach today in Italian wedding soup. I added 8 cups of it to my soup. I love it.

    I also tried roasted brussel sprouts tonight and I am in love. So tasty!!!

    Your little cup is so cute!

    OH NO on the snow. It is beautiful but not great for jogging in!!! Glad you had those DVD’s!

    I use Barlean’s flax so I will have to check out this omega swirl. All your food pics look so good! AND love the little cup!

    It was in the mid-50’s here and not raining for a change so I went for a bike ride…thought of you as my face was cold with the wind hitting it – I do not know how you manage to exercise in the cold! I’m thinking of getting that Jackie Warner DVD that Mizfit reviewed a couple of weeks ago…I can’t keep staying inside on the days I don’t workout without doing SOMETHING – have you ever tried it?

    Love the tiny coffee cup – too cute!

    Awww, I wanna come eat gingerbread bagels with you guys!! I’ve got to look into those Firm DVDs. This is my first winter with a driveway I have to shovel myself. I predict there will be many mornings I won’t feel like shoveling out just to go to the gym!

    Lori, I think I am going to add that recipe to my shake recipe group on facebook. I think I invited you to the group already but I will double check.
    I am in Utica, NY for a week and it looks similiar to the snow pic outside of your job. Love the mug with your name on it!

    I’m sure that snow makes for some messes, but it sure does look lovely! I think I’ll have to give your wrap combo a try – I’ve never thought about adding jam to a savory wrap. Sounds unusual and tasty all in one!
