Rain! Our river is flooding again. Scary stuff. I think the ground could have handled spring rain if we hadn’t gotten so much snow during the winter. Needless to say, I did not bike to the gym.

Note I brought back some arm moves for variety. On a side note, that ‘trainer’ guy who has given me ‘advice‘ in the past was talking about how he took last week off because his shoulder hurt and it was because he got air in the muscle. Apparently, when you tear the muscle, air can get in there from taking deep breaths (no I am not making this up) and cause pain. I said he might want to go see a doctor if his lungs were leaking air. Don’t you want to hire him?
I picked up John for Bagel Wednesday! My usual whole wheat with cream cheese and Ethiopian Harrar coffee.
With all this rain, I brought the bike inside on the trainer again. Sigh. At least I am riding. I have it in the living room taking up space that we really don’t have with the renovation going on.
Friday I should be back outside weather-wise, though.
Lunch time included some plain greek yogurt, strawberries, and some Fiber One carmel delight.
Good stuff. I get snacky with this cereal, though.
It was a slog with work today. You all know what kind of day I mean. It just seemed to take forever today and then there was some down time with no work for a while. It’s surgery day, so I don’t get those files. I hopped on the trainer and did some riding 😀
Afternoon break was nutty. Almond milk latte (added protein powder) with a side of peanuts!
My version of mixed nuts. Is that legal?
Doing well on the vegetarian front, although I would like some meat. Last night I repeated the rice lentil dish. Tonight was some palak chole. I don’t like beans, but I do like lentils and tolerate chickpeas pretty well.
Interesting, but this recipe page is the most hit upon page on this blog. Isn’t that funny?
More nuts today.
John made some candied pecans to take to his poker game tonight. I lurve these nuts! Whenever we go to a fair, just smelling these nuts is enough to make me go crazy. Good thing they are exiting the house or I would be eating more.
