Thank you all so, so much for the comments on my anniversary! Even though I have not reached my mind’s goal, I never stop trying. 😀
Happy Solstice, too! The longest day of the year. Funny how it comes just as summer begins, isn’t it?
I was ready to hit some iron today. I have to say that the traffic was really annoying on the way to the gym today. Hello city bus? You need to give me more room! The dumbass driver came so close to me that it rocked my bike! Scary!

And hello gym people – wipe your sweat off the benches please! Even a woman did not wipe her sweat off today and she was wearing a little halter top, so got sweat all over the bench. Nasty! They provide us with wipes, so there really is absolutely no reason not to use them other than no manners. How about that for some complaining today?
I actually had made breakfast up last night and reheated it this morning. A banana bread pudding with coconut flour (GF!). I baked it instead of microwaving it. Need to put up a recipe page for it soon.
Topped with Teddie PB and strawberry jam! I really, really liked this. I swear one of these days I am going to eat breakfast for every single meal.
After a solid morning of work – I wanted some superfoods for lunch! This shake was packed with them.
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 30 grams of unflavored whey protein isolate
- 8 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 14 grams of flax meal
Of course, I did spend the next 15 minutes picking flax out of my teeth, but it was tasty. One nice thing about eating on the porch is that it keeps me from eating while working. Not that I do that or anything, but just sayin’…
Funny thing about yesterday, John was looking at my lose-aversary post and had a lot of trouble reconciling the old photos with me now. Even though a lot of my life with John I looked that way, he said it is hard to remember me looking like that. It still can be fairly fresh in my mind, though LOL!
Back to work and a visit to pet the Great Napper!
I let her have the chair all day because I am so nice.
Made up a good latte today. I actually made my own as John was busy. I can’t believe I had to make my own snack!
Plus I got to talk on the phone to my sis during break time and make plans. We are doing a women’s outdoor weekend this weekend. She is actually teaching some classes. Bow hunting and shotgun. I am just attending to do other classes like hiking and dutch oven cooking. Should be fun, although our track record for weather is a little iffy when we do outdoor things. 🙄
Nice light dinner tonight.
I had some bread baking and I wanted a piece later, so I lightened up dinner. I think this month is going pretty well on the weight loss front, so I am pleased about that. If I can just hold on to that thought while away this weekend.
I decided to celebrate the longest day of the year with an evening bike ride tonight. I went out solo tooling around. Just a nice night for a ride with my magic shoes.
They may look dorky, but I love them.
Now to get a piece of that bread and practice some guitar!
Question: What is your biggest peeve at the gym?
