Healthy Heart Weekend is here! Some of you are already done, too – you rock!
I woke up ready to go. I didn’t sleep all that well. Ones of those times where I thought I was going to go up in flames from night sweats.
And I woke up to -15 degrees. (That’s minus 15).
I had a couple of dates and some almond butter pre run.
I do love this snackie before running.
Hopped on the treadmill at the gym and did 4 miles!
Sweating buckets, as usual. I was ready to eat when I got home. Time for oats, baby! My true love for breakfast.
I did these as custard oats, but instead of mashing the banana up into the cooking water, I sliced it and sauteed in a tsp of buttah (real butter) and cinnamon. Topped with the coconut butter.
OMG! I loved this. Recipe for coconut butter coming tomorrow.
Work is somewhat slow this week. Sigh. My resume is still floating out there, but nobody seems to like me. Their loss.
Lunch time. Higher carb day today, so I included some pan fried sweet potatoes with my chicken. Tasty!
Friday latte love with the last of the Pure Dark sample. I figured out why I couldn’t taste cherry the other day- the big chunks of dried cherries had fallen off into the bag. I don’t like cherries, so I don’t mind that. More nibs for me!
I also had a spoonful of chocolate coconut butter I made today (to be in tomorrow’s post). Melted Mounds anyone? D’oh! Need to ration that stuff carefully.
I was not so hungry for dinner, so I had it a little later than usual. Just prior to this post, in fact. Thank you to coconut butter. Since I was working, I made it a quick fix dinner. Chick’n patty
And I ran out of Laughing Cow, my usual topping, so it was leftover processed cheese spread from the Super Bowl. The sacrifices I make, I tell you. This was a mighty tasty pear, too.
It’s nice to have basically an egg-free day (except egg whites in my oats). I thought I was going to start clucking like a chicken with all of the eggs I have been eating this week.
Well, this lady has to get back to work on Friday night. Hope you all have a great night and have fun doing the Healthy Heart Weekend! It’s not too late to join, either, if you want.
