Hump Day! I was ready to lift today as I did not go on Monday. Bottom’s up on the protein!
I almost rode my bike to the gym today, but there was frost on the car window. That is a bit cold, even for me.

I worked this hard today. The deadlift/row combo is one of my favorites. It is a great full body move. Old video here – bet long time readers remember this one:
Not sure why that ad pops up on this video. Anyone know how to get rid of that? I did supersets with all the other exercises. I finished in 25 minutes with this workout!
Then I came home to get John and head out for Bagel Day jr. (Sunday is the original Bagel Day). Maybe I should call it gluten day now LOL!
Whole wheat bagel with some Moose Crossing coffee, which I think is some sort of chocolate flavor.
The sun is out today and mid 40s coming up today. Maybe it is getting to be spring. Another sign of spring – no beard!
Lunch time! I cooked up an omelet with broccoli and laughing cow.
Plus cantaloupe! It was really good melon, too. Melon is really hit or miss sometimes, so it was nice to have a hit 😀
Took a nice 2 mile walk to the bank and back this afternoon. It felt good to get outside and see some sun! For real vitamin D instead of in pill form. The front garden is now all clear from snow. Time to prune and trim.
The side garden will be buried for a little while longer. I did shovel some snow off it, but it is all heavy and icy.
Afternoon snackage when I got back of an almond milk latte with more of the macaroon that John got me!
I must recreate the macaroon at home.
Had a quick dinner tonight of salad with chicken, feta and parmesan dressing.
I am going to work some more tonight while John is out and try to finishing catching up for the week.
I also made a batch of the coconut bread, only did them as biscuits. I will revamp that page with the biscuit addition at some point.
You’ll be seeing these grain-free/gluten free beauties this week.
I have settled in with a sweet/salty snack to finish up work:
Have a great evening!
