Happy Thursday! It was a really nice fall day today. I knew I had a bike ride planned for later after it warmed up, so I got up and made some warm brekkie and coffee.
This is Almond Joy Oats:
These tasted so good to me. I also burned my tongue on them because I was impatient. Ooops. 😳
I worked really hard this morning and was able to finish up one of my jobs by lunch time! I debated on what to have (while I nibbled on peanuts) and ended up with the tuna:
I checked in with the other job and it was really slow, so I figured I would get my ride in after lunch before the rains came. I had a quick snack:
Then went out for a 13-mile ride. My goal today was to have a relaxed ride and enjoy the colors. This was a ride along the canal. Join me, won’t you?
One of the signs the season is over:
Can you tell I was loving this ride today?
Sometimes is is just so nice to go out and not worry about how fast you are going or how far you are going and just enjoy the moment. My legs felt so good during this ride. Goes to show that lifting really can make you tired on a low level all week.
After I got back, John made lattes and I paired it with a balance bar:
And I had to get back to work… booooo….
We tried to register for the duathlon online and found out it was closed. It was supposed to be open through tomorrow – so I don’t know what is up with that. I hope they aren’t full (which would be really, really surprising). I have a message in to the Towpath people to make sure we can still register on race day, but have not heard back. We don’t want to show up early Sunday and find out we can’t register. Regardless of whether we do that specific duathlon or not, I am going to do the distance on my own this weekend if it is not open. I’ll keep you posted.
John cooked up some pork burgers for dinner with some Cabot cheese. Cabot sent me samples of a new cheese that will hopefully be in stores soon. These are new products and I am honored that they gave me samples before they hit the market! I love Cabot reduced fat cheese and this will be the new product:
Individual snack size. I am actually not that big on all the extra packaging material, but the nice thing is that these are portioned out (like string cheese), so a block of cheese won’t get all dried out. Not that we ever have that problem… There are non pepper flavors, too – I just love the heat!
All melty on my burger:
Cabot is really the only low fat cheese that melts and tastes good. I have been on the cheese wagon this week LOL!
Tonight is Project Runway and some quality time with John and the heat-seeking lap missile.
