The end of the work week has arrived for me! It’s been a busy week, that’s for sure. I am so ready for New Orleans and the cruise (9 days and counting…..).
Today was a run day at the gym. Seeing more new members, which is good (as long as they don’t take my favorite treadmill!). I noticed it is definitely lighter out in the morning now when I leave the house. Spring is coming! Right?? 😉
I put on Harry Connick Jr today (25) and hit ‘start’. While I like this album, I think it was too mellow for running. I did 6 miles, and did the last 3 miles at 6 mph. Felt good! I was incredibly sweaty today, though, more than usual (which is already pretty scary). I’m getting used to 6 miles as a base distance now….. maybe.
Came home and wanted oats today, and decided to make them custard oats! I used 1 serving of liquid egg whites. I almost used a regular whole egg, but I wanted the fat on top in the form of peanut butter! One thing I love about the egg white in the oats is the volume you get out of the bowl. For only 30 calories and it about doubled in size.
Cooked with a banana mashed in and topped with peanut butter and some peach grand marnier jam that was made locally. So awesome!
One of the reasons I posted my snacks yesterday is that I do worry that there are people who copy what I eat or who email me saying I don’t eat enough 😯 , and I want to make sure that people understand that I actually eat a lot of food, particularly because I work out so hard, or just because I eat too much sometimes I don’t like how I tend to snack so much, because it isn’t always hunger. It’s not really boredom either, since I am working. It’s one thing to bring snacks to work and eat them, but since I work from home – there is *always* stuff around to eat, cause I live here!
I was in the mood for a waffle sandwich for lunch, so here comes the 2nd installment of eggs:
There was an egg in the waffle mix, plus the egg/egg white fluff on the sandwich with laughing cow. Plus an awesome red pear. I think red pears are my very favorite pear. Bosc pears, not so much.
I rocked on the football picks again. Okay, I just squeaked out a win this week, but I’ll take it! I decided on dinner instead of breakfast out. Our original plan was to go to Rock Hill Bakehouse, but when we pulled in it was incredibly crowded. I think it was open mic night or something? So we went across the street to Wholy Crepe.
I already had eggs for breakfast and lunch, so why not dinner, too?
I had a chicken and broccoli crepe. How sad that I can’t get out of my rut even when eating out 😳 It had a dill sauce with a tiny bit of cheddar cheese in there. Served with a side salad.
Of course, when you are at a crepe place, you must get a sweet one. We decided to split an apple crisp crepe.
Not sure how they formed this to be a bowl, but it was a cool presentation. The crepe was filled with apple crisp, drizzled with caramel and had a most fantastic whipped cream with it. Sooooo goood! I wish they would get rid of the florescent lighting, though.
Now for a relaxing evening and Project Runway! I have a lot of things to do on the day off, including working on the rental house to get ready for the open house and broker open.
Question: Have you ever had crepes?
