Sunday was a complete rest day for me and it felt really good. I biked in cold weather to the gym this morning. I think the days of shorts for the gym are over, at least on days I bike.

Then I biked on home. It was a little warmer because the sun was out at that point, but still pretty chilly. I think around 40? There is another frost advisory tonight. 😯
I was all excited to try my Irish porridge! Assuming a hob is the stove –
How quaint. Looks kind of like quick cook oats.
There are raisins, papaya, and pineapple bits in this, with no sugar. Stats are the same as rolled oats, pretty much.
Of course, I had to make it my way with a mashed banana and custard style.
Creamiest bowl ever! These were good and very smooth. Sort of like pudding almost. A nice change up from more chewy oats. Ah oats, is there anything they cannot do?
I really have been indulging a lot on weekends lately. Yes, I have been doing long rides, but I think I need to get my balance pendulum swinging on a smaller arc than it has been. Especially with the holiday season coming up shortly. With that in mind, I am going to participate in Steve’s Hot 100 challenge that starts later this week (to coincide with the last 100 days of the year). You can join if you like! I need to firm up what I am going to set for goals for myself and post that by the 23rd.
Lunch time! I made up an interesting carrot salad and will post the recipe tomorrow. It’s got yogurt and cinnamon and raisins in it. Sort of Morrocan flare to it, I think.
Paired with the last little tuna can. Tuna is out again for a while. It just officially flipped over to the “I’m tired of it” list.
Work was very steady with both jobs and then totally died in the early afternoon, just before I was all finished with my lines for the day. Booo…. that means evening work during the Saints game tonight. However, I was able to go out and help John with the biz, as that is really ramping up as per usual in the fall.
Made up a protein latte today. I have to say that I am really liking the whey protein isolate. It is a little more expensive than regular whey, but it mixes easier and has hardly any taste to it, other than maybe a little milky (that is as close as I can think for a description). It’s pretty much pure protein as 28 grams has 27 g of protein in it. Sweet. I buy mine from True Protein.
Now I have a latte with 15 grams of protein (including that in the milk). And a delicious bowl of grapes to go with.
Pixie says, “Can we go outside and play?”
Sorry kitty! No more outdoors for you.
I sure am getting in the fruits and veggies today. They dwarfed my pork burger for dinner.
Think I went a little overboard on the strawberries 😳 They were pretty tasty, though!
Evening walk in store, plus more work. And this snack all the way from Canada via Suzi:
Tomorrow is a brick workout. Just not sure if I am going to do run/bike or bike/run.
Question: Do you eat any import food?
