It was light out this morning, so I decided to bike to the gym. See how light it is now before 7 a.m.?
My preworkout protein drink (no sweetener in this).
It was really cold and windy. I don’t know what I was thinking LOL! Good thing the gym is only 2 miles away.

I biked home pretty fast as the wind was a tail wind and it was starting to spit sleet at me 😯
I was ready for a warm and filling breakfast. Today is a no-added sugar day for me.
Cream of wheat cooked with a banana and cocoa powder and topped with some crushed almonds and Artisana coconut butter, which was really solid as we keep our house pretty cool.
That coconut butter is good stuff. I am going to try to make some on my own.
So, I received some unsolicited advice at the gym today. There was a new person that just joined the gym. He came in near the end of my workout. I said good morning, as I usually do to people. I noticed him watching me (crud). Then he asked me about my routine. Then he asked if I used to be an athlete! I had a funny vibe from him, and what popped out of my mouth was “No, not an athlete, I used to be 100 pounds heavier.” I never say that to people. I rarely bring up my weight loss in person to strangers. So, he starts saying how he is a personal trainer (uh-oh) and how I am probably thinking that I will never get the bottom stuff off (oh my god, did he really just say that to me?) and all I needed to do was shape up … insert jaw dropping here …
This man is 60 years old. He should really know better… Then he proceeds to tell me I need to do squats and that I look fine from “here up” while gesturing from his waist up. (Did he *really* just say that to me??). He is showing me air squats and to start with no weights, blah, blah. I finally tell him I was doing barbell squats earlier and he just kind of looked at me like he didn’t know what to say. All the while I am trying to think how I can extricate myself without being totally rude. After that he went back to his workout and I ended up going home because I was feeling a little pissed off. This is why making assumptions is bad.
After a morning of work, I took a break for lunch. I mixed up a little light mayo with curry powder and added in chopped apple and chopped chicken. With toast!
Plus a few peanuts.
Look at what it was doing outside starting mid morning! Eeek!
No real accumulation, but sloppy and wet. Perfect day for one of these:
I can’t believe how dark it gets with the time change. My body just can’t get used to it overnight. Makes it hard to take dinner pictures now. I decided on an omelet with a veggie sausage and laughing cow.
Picture perfect – and delicious!
Pixie was all snuggled up today. She was probably remembering her first few months of life when she was homeless and cold.
She certainly fell into a good life here.
I got my bike trainer today! I am getting it hooked up tonight and will get some photos of it this week – and a review of how it is going LOL!
Evening snack tonight will be a forelle pear (isn’t it cute??) and some pretzels.
Question: What was some of the worst unsolicited advice you have received?
