I couldn’t think of a better title than this It was warm enough to bike to the gym this morning, too bad it was too dark. It’s coming, though!
The gym was quiet today and had better music. I like Journey (okay, I love Journey). So I rocked on while lifting today!

It felt good today. I have to remind myself to slow down because the tendency when I lower the weight is to increase the speed!
I made a whomping huge bowl of oat this morning for breakfast! I soaked regular rolls oats overnight (normally I do that just with steel cut). I wanted to see what they were like. They got voluminous!
I cooked a mashed banana with these and whisked in egg whites. Topped with coconut butter and some strawberry jam. Hello carbolicious breakfast. I probably did not need this whole bowl, but I ate it all. Then I went up and rode the bike trainer for 8 miles since I had a carb high going on LOL!
Today was such a beautiful, beautiful day! It approached 60 degrees! Funny how spring coming changes my mood dramatically. I felt a case of full-blown radiance today! I just kept smiling and I practically skipped down the street to do my laundry.
Certainly made it hard to work today, that is for sure! The wind really picked up, though. Otherwise I would have unhooked the bike and taken it outside.
I know all of you think my cat is sweet and innocent. Here is Pixie being bad. I got up to get some coffee and I looked right at her and said, “Stay out of my chair.” I had to take this picture because I can almost read her mind. She is thinking, “That spot looks warm!”
I came back with said coffee and see this:
Lunchtime salad. Chicken with feta and dressing, plus 5 crumbled pecans.
John made up lattes, which I had with some of my chocolate stash.
It’s like they are floating in the air!
My afternoon took on an interesting twist. I received a call from my current job this afternoon from the owner of the company. Apparently she was forwarded my letter of resignation that I turned in and they made me an interesting offer than I need to seriously think about this weekend. Hard choices!
It wasn’t a hard choice for dinner, though. I wanted popcorn fish!
I can’t figure out why I like these so much when I generally don’t care for fish. Maybe it is because they are chunks of fish and not pressed and formed minced fish?
Tonight we are doing it up right by working on our half bath! We sure know how to party 😀
Plus a couple dates and nutbutter snacks:
Have a great weekend!
