Friday! That always means relaxed workout time for me. I ate half a protein bar and headed out to the gym.
Note to self – remember to start the car and let it warm up unless you want to stand out there and scrape in your gym clothes.

Then I cooled down for 10 minutes on the treadmill. Said personal trainer that gave me unsolicited advice was giving advice to some other guys there. I actually don’t think he is interested in getting clients. I think he just likes to give advice and feel important. I am sure you all know somebody like that.
I contemplated breakfast over the 5-minute drive home. I decided on banana custard cream of wheat!
Sigh. I love breakfast.
I had a hard time getting myself motivated to work today. That 6th 1/2 day is just annoying sometimes LOL! It has been busy week.
This week’s Hot 100 Update:
- Maintain my weight. Scale stayed the same this week. Was hoping for a downtrend, but at least no uptrend!
- No eggnog lattes until Thanksgiving day! 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. Going to do a virtual 5K on Turkey day!
- Do stretching exercises 4 days a week at least. Did 6 days!!
- Visit one new blog each week that is participating in the Hot 100 Challenge and cheer them on. I am visiting a bunch as we speak!
- Do one no-added sugar day each week. I did it, but it was a struggle.
Overall a good week. I was pretty stressed with how busy I was and pleased that I didn’t visit snack town very often. I think the scale might have shown a loss without the calzone and likely what I ate on Sunday.
Lunch break from work.
The rest of the paneer. I toasted a pita to serve on the side. Yeah, won’t be getting that again. Oh well.
I finished up work after lunch – yay! Then I set out to make some honey fluff, which was perfect on top of some crustless pumpkin pie!
We have pumpkin coming out of our ears! So much better than last year when there was the shortage.
John was super busy today, too, so I thought I would make the entire dinner tonight. Of course, I took an easy route LOL!
Or pressed and formed shrimplets, as I like to call them I sliced up some potatoes coated them with some Penzeys cheese sprinkle and baked them in the oven to go along side. A semi-homemade dinner.
That kiwi was super sour, too. Boy howdy! I noticed it was super bright green, but it felt ripe. Weird.
I had a couple mint cups for dessert, and then decided to take a quick ride on the trainer:
Nice 45 minute spin. It’s so weird to be on my bike without my helmet on. I suppose I could wear it and no one would know…
And a large side note – today is John’s goal anniversary. 1 year ago today he hit his goal weight after losing 43 pounds and has maintained that loss! Go J-man!
