Half work day today, so I could doodle around a little more at the gym this morning. Next week it will be light in the morning again and maybe I can sneak in some more biking there before bringing the bike inside.
Warmed up on the stationary and then lifted.

I was doing a bit of grunting today – would have gotten kicked out of Planet Fitness LOL! I was feeling kind of kickass today, I have to say.
Then I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes before heading home, all the while thinking of these!
Haven’t had the protein waffles in a while. There are just so many good choices for breakfast, you know?
I thought my blog might break from all the traffic yesterday and today! Not only from the AOL That’s Fit article, but another site linked to my chai granola recipe. Ya’ll can say ‘hi’ – I won’t bite too hard, I promise…
This week’s Hot 100 Update:
- Maintain my weight. Been back to losing mode and the scale is eking downwards.
- No eggnog lattes until Thanksgiving day! They are available now, but I have resisted.
- Do the duathlon and at least 1 more 5K race before the end of the year. Did the home duathlon. 5k done on October 30th
- Do stretching exercises 4 days a week at least. Did 5 days!!
- Visit one new blog each week that is participating in the Hot 100 Challenge and cheer them on. Been visiting.
- Do one no-added sugar day each week. Done.
I totally rocked the challenge this week! That felt damn good, too. Just a good feeling week all around, I have to say, rain and all.
I made up a quick lunch of open-faced BBQ chicken and a pear. Tasty!
I wanted a quick lunch so I could go out and do a few errands and then go to Starbucks to finish up work.
I got a decaf skim latte (aka the ‘why bother’) ). Drizzled with a bit of honey. I love having a mobile job, even though the pay stinks…
Then it was home to get John and head out for dinner. I won the football picks again this week. I am a rockstar, I tell you!
We went to Rock Hill Bakehouse as I have been craving soup and bread. Colder weather just makes me want to warm up from the inside out. I had the Jamaican Jerk chicken soup (spicy!) with an assortment of house made breads:
John got the NE clam chowder, which was also excellent. You can tell when soup is made from scratch. Then we walked around downtown a little bit and saw a new coffee shop that is opening up next week. Yay! They have bagels on the menu, so will have to check it out for bagel day once they open.
I need to keep any snacking under control tonight. The weekend can be hard for me and I hope to get off on good footing tonight!
I’ll be running tomorrow morning in the cold…. brrrr….
Question: What is your favorite soup?
