Happy Tuesday! I had a good night’s sleep last night. Yay! I decided to do a pre breakfast run today. Haven’t done one of those in a long, long time. I think pre-injury! I had a granola bar first for energy:
then I hit the streets for a 3-mile run. Running is still a struggle for me. It’s my thigh while runnning, and does not feel like it used to before when I ran. Plus my back aches when I am done. Oh well, I can’t complain all that much, because I am pretty much back to normal activity.
I did get pretty sweaty, though. Good thing it was 7 am and only about 55 degrees out!
I showered up (don’t post exercise showers feel the best??) and commenced to breakfast making. It went much easier than yesterday 😀
Custard cream of wheat with a mashed banana.
I topped it with some of that beer jelly I got a few weeks ago.
Beer with breakfast? Why not? It actually had a beer smell to it, but not so much in the taste. It was mostly sweet.
Work went pretty smooth today. I actually had an interview today with another company. MTs with experience are in demand, which is good, but the pay is just awful every where you go. Thank you off shoring for that…. Anyway, I may try this company to see how it fits for me.
Lunch break for a tuna wrap and a delicious kiwi!
A girl needs chocolate, right? So I had some with my latte:
There actually was more in this bowl, I just forgot to take a picture before I ate some. Just so you know….
And yet another reason for me to keep embracing caffeine. This study shows a link between 4 cups of coffee a day and reduced head/neck cancer! I always take studies with several grains of salt, because the numbers can be manipulated, but there seems to be more and more evidence that compounds in coffee have beneficial properties!
Dinner time was a classic BBQ chicken salad. This bowl has about 1/2 a bag of spring mix in it, topped with 4 oz of chicken chopped up with BBQ sauce, a little slivered almonds and 3/4 oz of reduced fat feta cheese.
It has that sweet/salty mix I like.
Speaking of sweet/salty – we headed out to run a couple errands and hit up the cheap shopping:
John snuck these into the cart:
D’oh! I didn’t even want to try them, since I love pretzels and chocolate together. But, I did. I ate some out of this bag. Quite tasty. I actually wish there was a little more chocolate in each one, but the texture was yummy. This is something that won’t be coming into the house very often.
Tomorrow is bagel day and lifting move of the week!
Question: Have you tried the pretzel M&Ms?
