We enjoyed the concerts last night. Here is a pic of the drums they played:
Last lifting day of the week. Wahhh…. Maybe I will think about doing a split body routine next year for some variety. I had half a S’mores Balance bar before heading out. I started with a 1/2 mile jog on the treadmill, then set to work.

By the way, here are my new gloves I got in a giveaway on Jody’s site.
I needed them, too, as my others ones were ripped (and not in a good way). They are Harbinger gloves. They have a nice stretchy mesh, and at first I thought they felt tight (size M), but the leather loosened up after a couple wearings, and they are quite comfortable.
Here is the palm side.
I like that these are washable leather – yay! The only thing I wish the gloves had is an absorbent pad over the top of the thumb/first finger area. My old gloves had that and I would wipe sweat with it. That doesn’t work so well with these gloves. I have had a couple comments on my new gloves, too. The black looks pretty badass at the gym.
Still having some shoulder issues. I can do pushups and bench presses now, but still no fly or incline presses yet. Ah well. That’s what happens in your 40s, I guess.
I then popped on the treadmill to jog another mile and then I was so ready for breakfast! I made waffles with the apple cranberry topping, but using fresh cranberries instead of dried.
A little fluff sneaked on there after I took the picture. Love!!
Now it is Friday and Hot 100 Update time!
- Maintain my weight. Scale starting to drop Tday weight. Funny how watching portions will do that…
- No eggnog lattes until Thanksgiving day! This goal is done, so I will remove it now.
- Do the duathlon and at least 1 more 5K race before the end of the year. This goal is also done for the year.
- Do stretching exercises 4 days a week at least. Did 5 days. I really think this makes a difference for me.
- Visit one new blog each week that is participating in the Hot 100 Challenge and cheer them on. Doing.
- Do one no-added sugar day each week. Completed
Doing pretty good now. Just need to ride it out for the next few weeks.
Lunch time! This was so good yesterday that I had it again today. 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa mixed with sauteed broccoli and a wedge of chile con queso Laughing Cow.
Easy and delicious! That’s my kind of cooking 😀
I was supposed to meet a friend for coffee today, but that got canceled, so I went with John instead. I had a skim latte and about 1/3 of this piece of coffee cake.
Tasty. The cafe is all festive right now. It’s feeling mighty Christmasy around here.
Aren’t these chairs fun?
I was spacing my work all day today, which is not a bad way to work! Soon enough it was dinner time and I had popcorn shrimp.
With hot sauce! I opened this bottle of sauce on 11/29. I marked the bottle because I want to see how long it takes me to go through it.
There will be dates for a snack later.
All in all a very good food day for me. Fridays have been tough for me lately, so it was good to continue the good eating. We shall see what the weekend has in store…
