We had such a nice weekend. Again, it went by too fast. I am still celebrating with my football gloating. I am making John take me out to dinner this evening because this week is jammed full of stuff.
This morning did bring a change in routine for me. Meet my new gym!

I did a light workout to get back into the swing of the gym, get used to the new equipment there and start trying to fit in. This was a good start. I missed the cable machine at home! Sorry Bowflex, you just didn’t do it for me. Here is a link to me doing the face pull if you want to see it.
This gym had a 1 year membership for $99. There are no classes or anything at this gym, but that is okay because my old gym didn’t have them either and I am not inclined to take them. The only thing I don’t like is that it is 5.5 miles from home versus 2 like my old gym, but saving $175 a year is worth it.
I came home to make up some brekkie. Even though it was somewhat warm, I felt like oats. These were cooked with some egg white at the end and topped with peanut flour and jam.
In my new bowl from the weekend! Yay! It’s the little things that please me. John is so lucky.
Today was just like a summer day. Almost 80 degrees! With this warmth and the moisture lately, going outside lately is like starring in an episode of Attack of the Mosquitoes. They even bit at my face, which is weird. I’ll probably be anemic for next week’s blood donation. 🙄
Lunchtime! I had an open faced egg sammie on a gluten free bread I made this weekend from this recipe. It actually came out really good and I think I will play with it.
It was a very steady work day today. One of these days I will talk about my job and what it entails. I get a lot of emails about.
Snack break of some chocolate:
And a latte!
Even with it almost 80 degrees out, I wanted a hot latte. Why yes, I am a creature of habit, thank you.
And speaking about creature of habit:
She was sleeping, but opened her eyes when I had the camera about 2 inches from her face. I just can’t resist taking pictures of her, sleeping or not.
I was ready for my football dinner 😈 I actually decided to take it a little easy on John as we have our anniversary dinner on Wednesday and then my mom’s birthday on Friday. Not to mention my niece’s birthday also on Wednesday. Did I already say this was a busy week coming up? So, I picked a BBQ joint – Dickey’s.
Kind of corny decor and the music left a lot to be desired from an Iamnotacountrymusic fan perspective.
I decided on a baker with BBQ chicken that had some cheese, sour cream and bacon on it. This was huge and I left probably a third of the potato behind.
I do like their chicken there. Better than the brisket, I do say. Not so crazy about the lighting. Don’t they understand bloggers need good lighting??
They also offer this:
I realized that I had been gluten free all day, so I forewent the cone and had a little dish to keep the GF thing going.
Yum. Victory tastes delicious!
I am going to go back to work tonight. Just getting in some extra lines to cushion in case all the doin’s this week make it hard to get in all my work.
Question: If you belong to a gym, does it offer classes?
