Rest day on tap for me. That meant sleeping in as much as I could, which really is only about an additional 30 minutes if I am lucky. I have an internal clock that always pretty much goes off at the same time.
I filtered the cold brew coffee and got out the bread dough from the fridge to rise. Then made up some Almond Joy cream of wheat!
- 10 grams of honey
- 2 egg whites
- 32 grams of Whole grain cream of wheat
- 1 tablespoon of dark chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon slivered almonds
- 1 tsp of unsweetened toasted coconut
Cooked the cream of wheat with honey added to the water, stirred in egg whites and did the toppings. Yum!
Anyone else have these Arby’s glasses with the winter scene on them? We used to eat at Arby’s a lot!
Then I got to work for Job #1, which was pretty busy. And watched the Tour. I don’t know if Andy Shleck has what it takes to beat Contador in the Pyrenees, but I hope so. Congrats to his yellow jersey today.
Since I was eating early due to no work out, I needed a morning snack because my tummy was grumbly.
One of the only reduced fat cheeses I like. Cabot brand 50% reduced fat cheddar. It is quite tasty.
My toaster oven arrived today.
That was fast! I will do a review on it soon after we do more than just toast in there. Thank you CSN stores!

Lunch time and I was ready to have some fresh baked bread.
It was almost a shame to put tuna salad on this, but boy howdy was this bread good! From the Healthy Bread in 5 minutes book.
I was able to finish up work early and was FREE for the day. We had a latte snack before heading out to do our civic duty:
This blood drive was held at the Elk’s Club. I so wanted to park in this space:
For real? Seriously??
Happy donor post draining:
Happy face because they gave us coupons for FREE ice cream! 1/2 gallon of Friendly’s. John and I each got a coupon, too. Sweet.
Plus my post donation snack. I am liking the raisins. Go iron!
John asked if I wanted to get dinner out since it was dinner time when we finished donating. Was I going to say no? I don’t think so. He had a coupon for a FREE cheese pizza at one of our favorite places – East End Eatery.
Started with a bit o’ green:
And then the cheese pizza.
I love John’s hands in the pic. He could barely wait for me to take a picture LOL. I had 2 pieces. I knew one wasn’t going to be enough, so I told myself I could have a 2nd piece, but I didn’t have to eat it all if I was full. Well – I ate both pieces and felt satisfied and not stuffed, so that was good.
Who knew a plain old Tuesday could end up being so good?
