Weekend! Yahoo! I slept in until about 6:50 before I was unable to keep my eyes closed anymore. It was raining when I got up, too, so I drove to the gym. I did a warm up on the treadmill (I got it up to 3.5 mph!!!)

|Dumbbell chest press||3 sets of 10 with 20# DBs (40# total)||Chest|

This routine took about 40 minutes. Then I came home. Going easy on the cardio today because we are going to shoot for a longer bike ride tomorrow, and I want to make sure I don’t over do it. I decided to do breakfast in a jar today. I see this a lot online with the nut butter jars, but we have small jars that wouldn’t work (not to mention I lick them clean). However, I did have a jar of fluff that had maybe about 1 serving left in it!
I cooked up some cream of wheat with a couple egg whites, then made some blueberry sauce and layered them parfait-style in the jar!
Label off to see how pretty this was. Anyone have a magic window when they were little? I did.
Can you believe this big jar was about 230 calories? Think I liked it? 😉
Then I was productive for the morning. I cleaned and straightened out my closet (instead of leaving clothes on the floor). Then per John’s request, I made some peanut butter. This went pretty quick – it only took about 6 minutes of processing to get this butter.
I had to taste test.
The sun came out and I puttered around in the garden a little bit.
I am waiting for some mail order plants to arrive, but I shifted around some volunteers and put more mulch down. Not much new flowering now except these:
Lily of the Valley.
It’s amazing to me how fragrant these tiny flowers are! If you cut them and put them in colored water, they will get little colored stripes in them, too. Neat.
Lunchtime! I roasted up some brussels to serve along side this open face egg sammie (with laughing cow.).
I almost put hot sauce on there, but didn’t 😀
So, I made an appointment to get my hair trimmed. I started the day looking like this:
And now I look like this:
Eeeeek – I cut it off! I decided to go shorter for the warmer weather and biking. I think I will like it a little better when it grows out just a touch, but it’s fun! My hair looks a different color, but it’s just the lighting.
After lattes, I took my mom to look at some flowers. I picked up a few more for the potted containers. I got back a little late, and just whipped up a quick stir fry for dinner. I was hangry!
Plans for tonight are a scooter ride to get some yogurt and then maybe a movie.
Question: Any fun weekend plans?
