Happy Pi Day!

Did you all remember to change your clocks?  It actually made me sleep a little bit later, but not by much.   Started off Sunday and the beginning of the work week with the glorious bagel!

Trail mix with cream cheese.  I decided not to bring my own cream cheese/protein powder mix today and just have a carbier (new word alert!) breakfast for my rest day.  I need today’s rest.

I need to learn how to rest and relax like Pixie does.  She has it down pat.

Slow work day today. That means a little exploring on Facebook today 😀

Doubled up on protein for lunch with greek yogurt, a little PP, strawberries and my choco protein granola.

Did you know it is Pi Day today (3/14 – get it)?

Last year, we went out for pie.  This year, John decided to make a pie to celebrate.  John is a total whiz at math, and has an undergraduate degree in mathematics.  He double majored in music and math.  He is Mr. Smartypants.   His contribution to Pi day:

An apple cranberry pie.  The crust was a graham cracker crust that he made using apple juice concentrate instead of butter.  I think the crust needs a little tweaking, but that has some good potential! Went well with my latte…

I am really hungry today.  Sometimes that happens on Sundays to me after I have a hard week of exercise.  I am trying really hard not to snack, but I did eat some peanuts and crackers while cooking dinner, which was….

Now I have chicken cooked up for meals this week.   I still have to do some work tonight.  Blah.  Evening snack will be a pear, or possibly some cottage cheese.

Question:  Are you good at math?

    I am actually pretty good at math – I went to a high school that’s always ranked very high in science & math (it was actually harder to get into my high school than it was to get into my college!). I know PI out to the 9th digit (required for our calculus & differential equations math classes) which is really sad, and our high school cheer actually uses PI as part of our main cheer. LOL

    The pie looks super yummy too!

    I was so bad at math in school that the teacher just gave up on me. Because of that, I always hated it and had a real mental block when it came to anything with numbers. Thank heavens for calculators. LOL

    I hate those hungry days and had one yesterday. I know that I probably didn’t eat enough for the amount of running I did, plus I didn’t sleep well the night before. What I needed was a nap, but I wanted FOOD!

    I can add, subtract, multiply and divide. That is it. I am sure I did all the fancy stuff when I was in high school, but that was many years ago.

    Pi day is too funny!

    Your breakfast looks super. Today my BF and I went out for breakfast and I had eggs Benedict san English muffins. Goodbye gluten! Next time I will skip the home fries and get tomato slices.

    The pie John made looks lovely. You are blessed to have such a wonderful husband.

    Pixie sure does know how to relax.

    I am terrible at math – it just does not make much sense to me. My younger son is a math major and my older son is an EE major – lots of math. I don’t know where they get it from!

    Happy pi day to you too! Math was my strong subject. I majored in engineering, and came very close to taking a minor in math, but didn’t just due to time and finances. I LOVE math. Total numbers geek here!

    That pie looks delish!

    Hee! I don’t really have time to read blogs tonight, but I love pi day, so I had to stop by when I saw your title. I’m pretty good at math and I like it, but my sister has a PhD in math, so I called today to wish her happy pi day!

    I like math! Never heard of pi day though. Are you sure it isn’t just a holiday that math whiz’s made up so they could eat another pie??? Haha. John’s pie looks quite yummy.

    Happy Pi day! We had the protein waffles with blueberry sauce again this morning and I think they may become a new tradition for us. John loved them and says they seem just like “normal” waffles. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes.

    Pixie sure does know how to do it! Love that!

    I was up with the time change Sunday & felt tired but wanted to try to get the bod adjusted to it! Still feeling it!

    That Pi graphic is soooooooooooo funny! Wow on John! Opposite ends with music & math… well, may similar too but all that scientific with the creative. Man, why do some people have some many talents! 🙂

    OK, that pie looked good to me!

    Oh man! I wish I’d known about pie day. Is it coincidence that I was craving some chocolate pie? hmmmmmm……

    Today I did remember to “Beware The Ides of March!”

    Thanks for the words of encouragement on my blog. I think I’m going to go for it and if I’m not ready by the end of summer then it’s ok. It doesn’t hurt (well, not too much anyway) to train at least.

    You’ve run and done tris and races and lifted weights. How does training for an endurance event mesh with weight lifting? I would assume that you do runs on the off days of ST but on the off days aren’t you supposed to be recovering from the ST? Am I overthinking this? 🙂

    Love the bagel and Pixie is so cute!

      Weight lifting and training go hand in hand. You need to build strength for endurance, particularly something like a triathlon. I pretty much trained 3 days a week with lifting (as I still do). I take 1 week off every 2 or 3 months. I normally do runs on opposite days of lifting, just because running is so much harder on the legs. I would do my bike training on lifting days. I think you need to build up to that, though. I wouldn’t do that much training right out of the gait.

    Not good at math – too much premenopausal brain fuzz activity! I do know what you mean about having one of those days where you just seem starving all day – I used to get them when training for the half marathons with the really long longer runs on Sundays – i would be starving all day afterwards!

    I am terrible at math! I have to use it at work so I’m getting a little better at it though. It’s much easier when you have practical applications. Yummy looking pie!

    Dammit, I missed Pi Day! The veins in the back of my left hand are actually in the shape of the Pi symbol. I always say it’s because I’m a born mathematician…

    Loved the Pi cartoon. 🙂 I’m pretty good at math, never struggled in that area. My husband is a math/science guy and he’s in fits that the kids didn’t know their mulitiplication tables by 2nd grade like him….they are past those years now, but not the “genius” that he is. 😛

    Never thought of celebrating Pi Day. You guys sure get a lot of fun out of life. I love it!
