I took a chance and biked to the gym today. The roads were wet and it was cloudy, but I say “heck with it!” and biked. I knew the rain was supposed to end this morning anyway – And it didn’t rain!

It was pretty humid in the gym with the doors open. The * is all the exercises I did on the cable machine. Going on T/TH means the cable machine hog usually isn’t there, so I could get on there and do my thing! I am thinking of actually getting some more weights and moving my workouts to home in August and not dealing with the gym anymore. I may as well become a hermit.
I biked home to a yummy aroma in the house and John said “There are fresh protein muffins if you want one.” Did I? Oh yes! They are lemon poppyseed flavored.
I made some blueberry sauce and slathered a muffin with it. Nom, nom, nom! I loves my hubby.
Here is the recipe in full so you don’t have to click.
1 c. white flour
2/3 c. whole wheat flour
2 scoops (1/3 cup) protein powder (unsweetened)- this batch had pea protein
3/4 c. sugar
1 Tblsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. milk (1%)
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
Add in Options
Zest of 1 lemon, 1/4 tsp of lemon extract, 1.5 Tbsp of poppyseeds
Mix dry ingredients in large bowl, and mix liquid ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour liquids into dry and gently fold together until mostly mixed. Then fold in add ins. Spoon into 12 standard muffin cups or 6 jumbo muffin cups. Bake at 400 for 20 mins (std.) or 30 mins (jumbo) or until golden brown.
Approximate nutritional info of basic muffin Jumbo size:
Cal: 270, Fat: 2 gram, Carbs: 37 grams, Fiber: 3 grams, Protein: 14 grams
The calories would be half that if you did the regular normal people muffin size and not the jumbo Lori size 😀
My life is good right now. I am so appreciative of that. 10 pounds be damned.
After a busy morning of work, I had some lunch. A burger with laughing cow and some caramelized onions.
I make up the onions and freeze them so I can pull out a couple tablespoons at a time when desired. The only way I eat onions ever is caramelized. Maybe an onion ring, but I am more likely to pull the coating off and leave the onion behind. (there, I said it).
John also made me my latte today. I really am a lucky girl.
With a date! I am really trying to control the snacking today. That habit really made an appearance again lately. I lot of people complain about food in the office, but it can be just as bad working at home because there is all kinds of food available because we live here. Not even junk food, but you can easily make a piece of toast or grab some nuts, etc.
Dinner time! More popcorn fish. Hello little nuggets. I really am liking these. Wonder if I could make these with a firm mild white fish.
An evening of house cleaning on tap. The renovation project is pretty much done – yay! I will get some pictures and post this week. Now there is a lot of time in the evenings available to us
See you all for Bagel Wednesday!
