Burgers and bikes

Thanks for all your thoughts on my comparison post yesterday.  In reading the “Savor” book, I realize that there is nothing necessarily wrong with me having those feelings, and acknowledging that they are there doesn’t mean they are true.  The nice thing about acknowledging that is that I don’t feel driven to eat out of feelings.  I actually have to say that I have really not had any snacking disasters for a few weeks now.  My snack habit energy is waning right now.

Anyway, I got up a little before 7.  I was trying to decide if I wanted to run or not today.  I decided I wanted breakfast, instead!  I haven’t had waffles in a while 😀

So good.  I wonder how the protein waffles would be with greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese?  Hmmm….. possible experiment some time.

I got to work right away and worked steadily all day long.  Quite the productive day, I have to say.  I took a lunch break and wanted something fast.

Greek yogurt, strawberries and Kashi Berry Crunch (aka crack on steroids).  I had a sample of this months ago and was so glad the entire box wasn’t in the house.  When we were shopping the other day, John pointed out that cereal and I told how wonderful and good the sample was.  Guess I somehow managed to not give him any of it…..  Anyway, he said I sold him on it, so we got some with the caveat that it go up high as soon as we got home.   I wanted some with lunch, though.

Afternoon latte was paired  with a couple cookies from the Silk & Satin swag bag.

These are very nibbleable (yay for new words!).  The box is in the freezer, but they don’t take long to thaw.  The rest must leave to John’s poker buddies tonight.

Last file of the day was exhausting.  It was a 33 minute dictation!  I don’t know who was more tired at the end, me or the doctor.  It took almost an hour and half to do this one with some breaks.  Phew!  I was glad to be done, but felt quite exhausted.

Dinner was a 3 oz burger topped with laughing cow and some caramelized onions on a small wheat bun.  Country Kitchen lite – only 80 calories and no sucralose!

Those are some of the tiny plums we got at the farmer’s market, too.   They are so good and fun to eat.

Take that Red Robin!

I needed to get out of the house for a while tonight and decided to bike instead of run.  So, Rosie and I decided on an easy yogurt run!  The path is full and green with all the rain we have had this year.

These parts of the path are one reason I hesitate to get a real road bike.  They are a crushed cinder, and I don’t know if road tires would be a good thing to take on them.

Yay for yogurt!

I chose creme de menthe tonight.  Minty and frosty.

I think the blue from my shirt is reflecting onto the yogurt, because it was green LOL!  Very tasty.  I can imagine this with hot fudge on it some time.  Would need a lot longer ride for that, though!

Gonna do some porch sitting and relaxing tonight.  I heard the first  dog day cicadas the other day.  The sign that summer is peaking and going to head for fall!

Question:  Have you heard katydids or cicadas yet?

    Now that you mention it I did hear cicadas yesterday.

    After seeing your patty pan squash today I said I was going to make GF breaded zucchini soon. Well soon came even sooner than I thought. I had it for lunch today and it was so good.

    Food for today looks scrumptious!

    Oh I am so glad to hear someone say summer is waning. About this time of year I am sick and tired of the dust. It is so dry for so long that everything on our road is dusty, including my house.

    That bun looks tasty. In fact , the whole hamburger looks tasty. I have been craving burgers for a while. Time to indulge. Will have to look for that bun.

    Mmmmm, I love burgers! That one looks really tasty.

    I’m kind of glad to hear that summer is waning, too, because we don’t get our summer until fall. Seriously, it’s been all cold and fog pretty much the entire time.

    A new fro yo place opened up in our town. It’s only about a 2 mile bike ride away, although I could take the long way and stretch it out a bit. 🙂

    I know what you mean on the cinder trails. Here they are decomposed granite and they are my favorite places to ride. They are the trails that go winding through the woods and over the foot bridges. Slater has a road bike and he doesn’t like to go on those surfaces. So I’m facing the same decision about a new bike (Pebbles sorta wants hers back), but I don’t think I want a road bike.

    Yogurt looks yummy! And I haven’t heard any summer critters, although I do live in downtown.

    Why does your food always look so darn good?!?! 😉

    Depending on the road bike, it should be able to go over those trails – the ones you really have to watch out for are the gravel/rock ones. I am pretty paranoid about it, because I don’t want to have to replace a tire! 🙂

      That would entail 2 bikes and storage space, although it is a possibility. Also, the path is what we ride the most and I hate to give it up to go in the streets.

    Summer has already peaked here since we had the longest day a month ago. Last week when I went out for my 5.30 am run it was much lighter than this week. I think in about a month I’m running before sunrise.

    I love that path you took on your ride.

    And that burger looks jummie!

    HI! I just stumbled on your blog and really like it. 🙂

    Your meals look delicious. And I would love to try Greek Yogurt in protein waffles. I can’t believe I haven’t yet. I despise cottage cheese so don’t add it and then mine always end up drier than others. I bet the yogurt would do great.

    Lori,

    Your journey is so inspirational. I love your website. There is so much great content. I’m going to have a lot of fun poking around. LOL. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog; it was very kind of you. And I’m with ya’ll. It’s hotter than Hades here in Kentucky, and I am sooo ready for summer to head on outta here!

      It is my Rosie shirt. I think it might have shrunk a little in the wash, unfortunately.

      Gravel can be scary even with the thicker tires!

    Yep. The katydids around my house have been making a racket.

    There’s a fro-yo place near my girls school and I never stop to get any b/c I don’t want to spoil their dinner. I may just break down and do it tonight.

    Crack on steriods 😀

    I’d love to do some porch sitting but I sweat something fierce and it’s HOT. I swear i’m going through menopause.

    Have a nice evening!
