I am melting in this heat. Actually, it is the humidity that does me in. I was so tired yesterday that I started to fall asleep in the afternoon. Then last night I could hardly keep my eyes open and I just gave in and went to bed at 10, turning off the light at 10:30. I usually go to be around 11:30.
I started my no caffeinated coffee week this week. 😯 I am questioning what I was thinking with my goals this month, but I will persevere. I roasted up some good decaf yesterday so at least what I drink is good stuff. I took my first walk around the block while that brewed up and I tried to clear my fuzzy head this morning.
I came back to make some protein waffles and made blueberry sauce from fresh blueberries that I picked on Saturday. 5 pounds of blueberries. Yum.
I was really tired in the morning. If it hadn’t been for me being tired yesterday too, I would have put it on the no caffeine, but not so sure now. Pixie is super hot as well.
Always the lady. 🙄
I took a break for lunch and decided to have some fish. I have not had tuna for a while since it went back on the ‘dislike’ list, but I do still like these!
These are organic strawberries. We don’t buy organic on things because of cost. With the way I go through berries, we just can’t afford the organic. Of course, who knows what pesticides I am eating. Oh well.
I really had trouble staying awake after lunch and decided to take my laptop to work in the bedroom with some AC on and take a nap. I fell asleep for half an hour and it felt really good! Naps are pretty unusual for me, but I must have really needed it.
I stopped downstairs to get a snack a little later.
Decaf coffee with almond milk and a dried pineapple ring with peanuts. That was an interesting combo.
I also felt hungry again a little later. What is up with that? Heat usually dampens my appetite, but not the last couple of days. I have been snacking like it’s my job.
I had one of my very favorite snacks:
Medjool dates only for me. I am totally spoiled. They are only $4.99 a pound here, so not too bad. It is the one snack I won’t eat too many of because they have such a rich flavor (to me).
We had bought fresh pineapple and I decided I wanted teriyaki chicken with pineapple. So I commenced to grilling for dinner:
Note I am cooking an extra chicken breast for this week – planning ahead!
John ate his on a plate. Me, I put mine on a bed of lettuce:
It is a rest day on the Tour, so no TV tonight. Can I tell you my geeky happiness? On Saturday night’s tour recap show, there is a segment called “Ask Bobke” about the tour. I posted a question to them on Facebook and looked what came on the TV screen!
And he answered it! Eeeeeee!!!! I love how they put MSU on there under my name. Must have pulled that off my Facebook profile, but I graduated from there with my masters in 1992. (OMG, I just really thought about how long ago that was…).
There is more hot weather coming up in the low 90s (that is really hot for us up here). And humid. We had rain today, which just made the humidity worse. Sometimes it is refreshing after rain, but not so today. Just need to make it through the next few days.
Question: Have you ever had grilled pineapple?
