Hi from the North Pole! Oh wait, it isn’t the North Pole – it just feels that way. Since we had more icy crap/snow precipitation yesterday morning, bagel day was postponed. Seems like that keeps happening. Anyway, I wasn’t sure if I was going to the gym to run today or stay at home and use the bike trainer. I chose to stay home and pedal. Then it was off to the much missed bagel at the Adirondack Cafe!
Wheat bagel. Yummers. Funny how I still get the occasional comment to me about how ‘bad’ bagels are and I shouldn’t eat them. I don’t ever outlaw foods. I may limit some foods, but I won’t say I will never eat something again. Unless we are talking about shiratake noodles.
And speaking of not running haha – I am going to do a sign up for the virtual Valentine’s Weekend Healthy Heart run in a couple days (likely Sunday). So mark your calenders for that to do whatever movement you want (run/walk/elliptical/swim). There will be a couple prizes in there, too. Just giving you all a head’s up. Let’s see how many people we can get to sign up for it!
Lunch time today was a protein hit. Tuna salad!
I love lemon pepper seasoning. I used to buy the packets of lemon pepper tuna until I came to the astounding realization that I could actually sprinkle that seasoning myself onto less expensive tuna and get the same result. And this red pear was pretty amazing today.
While I was working today, I had some bread rising. I kind of forgot about it and it over proofed a bit – Holy Yeast Batman!!
This is 100% whole wheat from this recipe. It started to fall a wee bit in the oven. This is the first I have done this recipe, so will let you know how it turns out. I used molasses for the sweetener. (edited to add that it turned out pretty good!)
Did you hear that long drawn out Nooooooooooooooooooo? That was John and I upon hearing that more snow is coming tonight. I hope it doesn’t keep me from getting to the gym tomorrow as I am supposed to lift! Not gobs of snow, but enough to have to shovel again. Pixie doesn’t know how good she has it, I tell you.
She almost woke up for this picture.
Thinking of that snow made me want something warm, as in a latte:
Mini mint cup! Should I put a box of these as a prize for the virtual run?
I am getting in work, which is good. Not quite full time, but good enough for now. I have the old resume out there, so we shall see what happens. I worked up to dinner time, which was:
Standard! LOL. I seriously need to bug John to make a lightbox for myself this weekend. Even with editing, the lighting just doesn’t look so good at night.
Not pictured are the crackers and peanut butter I nibbled on. Ooops.
I was not that impressed with this box of clementines. I reached in yesterday to grab one and my finger went right through one that was moldy on the bottom. Eeeeewwwwww! Might hold off on a box for a bit after these are gone.
More work tonight and prepping for snow tomorrow. Did I mention I’m sick of winter yet? 😉
