This morning was one of those where I was so snuggly that I did not want to get out of bed. I love that feeling! I decided on no morning workout today as I ponder what I will be doing. Very off the cuff. I knew what I wanted for breakfast, though! Protein waffles.
These are sprinkled with a bit of toasted, unsweetened coconut.
Pink item of the day used in the making of breakfast:
Yes – that is a couple days past the sell by date. If I don’t post tomorrow, you will know why. Work is busy for both jobs, so I just logged in early and started working. I like it much better when it is this way than waiting around for work to show up.
In thinking about events to do, with the winter the way it is here, there are no events until spring pretty much after the last few 5Ks coming up – the coldest of them being in early December (reindeer run) when I think it was 15 degrees last year? 😯 Yeah – that is cold. That makes it hard to set a goal for any type of training because events are so far into the future. I might just try working on getting more of my strength back. I was looking at old logs and I was doing deadlifts and squats over 100 pounds at the beginning of the year, which I still have not worked back up to yet after my herniated disk. So that is something to shoot for at any rate.
I am running the goblin gallop at the end of the month or at the very least on my own as part of Fran’s virtual run (click here if you want to virtual run).
Lunch time! Just some quick eats.
These pretzel crackers from Ritz are really good!
I was able to finish up work earlier in the day since I started early. That is always nice. John made up lattes as I wrapped up. To add the protein, we just put in about 1/4 scoop of whey into the milk when steaming. It works really well and adds about 7 grams of protein to the cup.
Pixie looks pissed off for some reason. Probably because I was bothering her while she was soaking up the warmth on the warm dishwasher! (We have a portable).
You may not have noticed, but I am doing a no-added sugar day today. I am going to rock the Hot 100 this week.
I went out for a nice 3-mile walk before dinner. I decided I didn’t feel like running, so I didn’t! Speaking of dinner, John chose to have his football meal tonight (thank you Packers and Ravens 😮 ). A new place opened up here last month:
One thing I liked about this place is that they had junior burritos. I like burritos, but they are always so big and never do well to take half home. Here is my junior Homewrecker:
On a whole grain wrap with chicken, rice, pico de gallo, lettuce, sour cream and cheese and it was about 450 calories. Quite good for all that goodness in there:
Here is a shot for showing the size:
It was just the right amount. It did come with a side of tortilla chips, and I just ate 4 or 5 of those. While the small burrito size is nice, I have to say that everything was a bit bland. I prefer Chipotle.
Relaxing night on tap tonight. I am going to have some pineapple and do some TV watching and reading.
Question: Have you been to a Moe’s?
