Seems a lot of people like the tuna/cottage cheese combo. I am so not sure about that one…..
Woke up early today, thanks to Ms. Pixie. I forgot to feed her dry food last night, so she was pushing on the door at about 5 am this morning 🙄 I got up and gave her some food, then tried to get back to sleep, but no dice. I figured I would get up and run, then. I had a protein drink and headed out to the track today. I noticed these nice gladioli blooming in someone’s yard!
I’m a flower stalker, what can I say?
Here is the lovely track I run at when school is out.
It was a good morning to run, as there was a foggy mist and it was in the 60s. I don’t like running in the sun unless it is winter time.
I did 3.25 miles. That’s an extra 1/4 mile just because I felt like it. I think I might be ready to get my mileage back up now that I am running regularly again. I do have a race on Saturday, though – so nothing heavy duty this week.
Even though it was not sunny, I still sweated a lot! LOL

Came home to some protein waffles.
Workity workity today. Both jobs very busy. Whew! I was ready for a lunch break pretty soon.
Greek yogurt, Bear Naked Banana cereal (very good), and blues.
Plus 1/2 of this just to get a few more calories because I felt like I really wanted more to eat.
For some reason, running makes me really hungry.
I have to tell you all that I really, really want to weigh myself. It’s been about 3 weeks now and I am dying to know if the scale is up or down (or the same). I have this strange fear that it will be up 5 pounds. After looking at all the videos of myself I did yesterday, I am feeling mildly down about my lower body. Not too much, and it will pass, but not weighing makes me have to sit and deal with that feeling without any reassurance. Is there a lesson to be learned there? I don’t know.
John made me a latte and I had one of the blueberry cornbread muffins with it. Toasted it up and sprayed some ICBINB on it.
For a more positive note on this month – I have been doing great with the no nibbling while preparing meals! I have been going through some Altoids, though LOL. I guess I would rather have 15 extra calories of those than 150 extra calories of nibbles, know what I mean? It’s still really hard, though, I will admit.
Dinner time was a stirfry of broccoli and shrimp with ginger sauce on a sweet potato.
John said my dinner looked weird. I liked it, and that is all that matters. He doesn’t do savory sweet potatoes, so maybe that is why he thought it looked funny.
I finished up both jobs and have a free night! I think I am going to drag out the beads and make some jewelry, maybe. Thank goodness the ice cream shop down the street is closed on Tuesdays 😀
