Bageling around

Yes, I think I can make a new verb called ‘bageling.’ That is the act of going to and having a bagel!  As per usual on Wednesday mornings.  Yesterday’s rain made it a very foggy morning for riding. I don’t love riding in the fog becuase I don’t trust drivers very much (which is a good thing because it keeps me alert). It’s definitely feeling like fall around here now – at least in the mornings.  We headed out to North Country Cafe where I had a wheat bagel:

With some caramel apple coffee! New flavor.  I don’t sweeten my coffee, so sometimes it is odd to have a flavored coffee and not taste anything sweet.

Had a nice view from the window.

The building across the street was torn down and now a new bank building is going up in its place. It is going to be a long process because the whole street itself will be redone as well.

We then headed on home.  12 miles round trip for breakfast! I was just thinking how much more I enjoyed the biking than the riding. Even when there are poopy drivers and flat tires.  I really am this:

(Shelley, I found one! :D) I may have to get myself one of these shirts. Thanks for all the pep talk on my running feelings. I think a lot of it confirmed that I will likely end running all together and just do what I really love to do.  What is that saying about insanity being when you do the same thing over and over again with the same result? I may be a little on the crazy side, but it is a good kind of crazy. I’d like to keep it that way.

Lots and lots of work to do today. It’s been busy lately, which is always good in our industry. I stopped for a quick lunch:

This is ricotta cheese mixed with a little honey and some whey protein isolate on top of blueberry sauce and some toasted pecans. It was a warm lunch, even though it looks cool.  Next time I would have more ricotta.

Today was wonderful payday, too, so I hopped on the bike for another 3 miles to go to the bank and back.  It’s nice that it is so close. Plus it was a nice activity break, although I was already a bit behind where I like to be at this time of day (that seems to be the Wednesday norm at any rate). Lattes upon return.  This is in front of my last plumeria – which didn’t bloom this year.

In my effort to work on September goals, I made another new to me recipe tonight for dinner. It’s called Best Captain’s Chicken from a WW cookbook and I will post the recipe tomorrow (hope that is kosher).  It didn’t take too long and turned out good!

It has chicken, apples, onions, peppers, ginger, cinnamon, curry powder and raisins in it.  While that sounds strange, it was very good. We both really liked it a lot.  Kind of a cross between a soup and stew (stoup).

There also has been some snacking on this:

Several handfuls of cashews.  These are starting to get in danger zone for me.

Well, I must run. John is off for poker and I am off for some socializing of my own!

Be Sociable, Share!

      So funny how you love the walnuts so and that is a nut I really don’t care about eating. Every other nut I am all over! Well, except for Brazil nuts. Never did like those.

    You are a Cycling Chick!!! I feel your love for two wheels flying off the page.

    You get an actual pay cheque? How exciting…I thought everyone had direct deposit.

    Yesterday, I spent some time thinking about running and your feelings vs. my feelings. I am having a terrible time right now as well. But the difference is that at the end of the day, I still WANT to run and I miss it if I don’t even if I’m running crappy. As I said yesterday, in general the fitness activities you do should not make you want to cry 😀

    Embrace your cycle chick and buy that t-shirt!

    I want that bagel & the flavored coffee- YUM!!!!!!!!!

    Lori, love that t-shirt & yes, do what you love & that is a good thing. Many people don’t like running or the gym or lots of things so they find what they love & do it! 🙂

    That chicken looks great & fall looking too! I love autumn, well, in the east! 😉

    I agree with everyone, you NEED that t-shirt! Otherwise tell John you need it under the Christmas tree. It’s adorable and totally you. 🙂

    Cashews used to be my favorite nut but I think pecans may have closed or pulled ahead slightly. Oddly enough, I don’t care for almonds but I love almond milk. I’m with you on the brazil nuts though!

    Hooray for bageling! I had a nasty Jimmy Dean bagel sandwich today – I am too thrifty to throw them out and have 2 more left to eat.

    Maybe if I defrost the night before and avoid the microwave all together they will be better?
