Boy, you sure all want some of that Attune chocolate! Not that I blame you. If you haven’t entered yet, get moving Sorry for the non-US residents on this one. I’ll have another giveaway this month that will be for everyone! 😀
This week is a non lifting week, which feels pretty weird. Makes for short gym sessions, too. I almost ran outside, but some sidewalks are a little sloppy still – so maybe later this week. We have temps in the mid 30s this week! Spring is coming, you can just feel it.
Anyway, I did a 5K treadmill run. The treadmills at my gym have a 5K button, so I thought I would give it a try to see what it was. Well, it was an incline workout! What I thought were going to be speed increases were actually incline increases. There was a 5 minute segment at 3%, which is more steep than I usually do. I kept my pace at 5.5 mph to challenge myself on that section. I was sweating a lot when I finished. I am such a sweater… even at 3 miles. 😳
Lovely brekkie this morning of custard oat bran.
While this was good, the egg didn’t make these creamy like they do with regular oats. I forgot how dense and filling oat bran is. We have an embarrassing amount of oat products on our shelf in the pantry. I should take a picture of it.
Had one of those frustrating days at work where instructions were not clear, which led to mistakes and time wasting to get things figured out. The company I work for is not always the most ‘with it.’ Sigh…..
I tried something different for lunch – a corn tortilla! I like the Smart Carb wraps, but there is something so tasty about the real deal. I put some laughing cow on it and an egg/egg white mix.
It was really, really good! You’ll see more of these (the package is big LOL). Is it me, or is there something funny about this picture??
In looking back at the past month, what a crazy month it has been for me! I squished a lot into the month:
I also learned an awful lot. I realized that I am normal. I decided to try to make the scale move again. It’s just been a crazy time. I have no idea what is in store for me for March. I am only hoping for one thing, and that is the sale of my rental house.
Dinner time meant Hughjass salad! We had cooked chicken in the fridge, which makes meal times so easy.
This is super quick, too. I just chop the chicken and mix with BBQ sauce. I don’t need any other dressing that way. Top onto a big bowl of lettuce and crumble on some feta. Slivered almonds are a nice touch, but I forgot them 🙂
Didn’t forget these, though! 😀
Made a new protein snack that has some interesting potential. I mixed some FF ricotta (John bought this) with some protein powder and cinnamon, and it kind of is like a cheesecake filling.
This combo was chocolate PP. Last night I tried vanilla. This would probably be quite good spread on a graham cracker or topped with some jam! Stats are good at any rate. 115 calories and 19 grams of protein!
Good eating day today – yay!
Question: Was February interesting for you in any way?
