Tuesday run day! Since I did 3 miles yesterday, I did 5 today (usually 6). Pretty standard treadmill run. I was checking my Daily Mile log and I have run 152 miles since January 1st! 😯 And I don’t consider myself a runner first. Interesting…. My legs felt pretty good. Normally they are a little tired on Tuesdays after a Monday lifting session, but no lifting this week. Can I say that I miss it already? I need to get that lifting FAQ post going, if I can get some extra time…
After the run, I decided on waffles for breakfast! You know how I love them.
Got started right away with work and I had a little help for a good share of the morning.
Sometimes she is so durn cute.
Cereal has come back into the house in the form of Kashi Go Lean. I am okay so far with it (of course, I just opened the box). Here it is mixed with plain greek yogurt, cinnamon, and strawberries. Yum!
Actually, this Kashi hurts my gums a little bit because it is so crunchy.
I worked on a lot of endocrinology reports today. That means a lot of patients with diabetes. I still can’t get over how many medications some people have to take – as many as 12 different kinds in a day. How do you keep that straight? Unfortunately, it seems as though many patients just won’t change their diet. Some do and the results can be quite amazing. The right food and exercise can really be the best medicine you can take.

Seafood for dinner. I wanted more protein and a lower carb dinner, so that meant a non-veggie source. Of course, the chicken was still frozen, but then I remembered the shrimp in the freezer. That takes just a couple minutes to thaw. 3 ounces = 20 grams of protein! I sauteed broccoli in coconut oil, then added the shrimp, some slivered almonds, and BBQ sauce!
With a pear on the side dusted with cinnamon. It’s funny how I am not a fish lover, but I loves me some seafood! Crab is my favorite (especially the claw), then scallops. I have to confess that I like my shrimp breaded best. 😀 Does shrimp have Omega 3? I guess I should look that up.
The best part of my day? Going out for coffee with my hubby! John and I went out to Starbies for some caffeine and chit chatting. It’s like date night 😳
Question: What is your favorite seafood?
