Dang it feels like Friday. Not so, unfortunately! I slept in a little later this morning, which was quite nice.
Pixie says “Don’t just sleep in, sleep all the time!”
Today is to be a grain-free day. The challenge will be dinner out – for my football winning dinner! 😈 Poor John.
I made up a banana bread pudding for breakfast:
Topped with coconut butter and orange marmalade. Yummy! This is quite filling.
Doing well on my monthly goals. I did my 3 miles yesterday – all outdoors because of the 54 degree day! Of course, it is always easier at the beginning of a challenge when motivation is high.
I continued working on the goals with lunch.
Two different veggies per day, which in my world likely is broccoli and *insert other veggie here*
Since I wasn’t sure what veggies would be available for dinner, I made sure lunch included something.
I really put my head down and worked. Super productive, which is great – so I finished up early! John had made lattes:
(Does my thumb look weird, or is it me?).
Then I loaded up my mp3 player and headed out for a walk.
This is on my player currently:
Hot Club of Detroit – All 3 albums! (although the first album is my fave).
If you have 6 minutes, listen to this tune.
Also on the mp3: Journey – Greatest Hits, Sweeney Todd Soundtrack, Gaelic Storm, Dirty Dozen Brass Band – 2 albums, Harry Connick Jr,. 25, New Nile Orchestra.
A bit eclectic, eh?
Some scenes from my walk.
Yum! Even if there is a grammar problem with the sign.
Burning bush with berries:
Looks like a murder at the old Scarecrow house!
Personally, I think it is this guy:
He looks creepy enough.
Then it was off to my winning dinner!
This is a new restaurant. They are supposed to have local smokehouse products there. I chose the pulled pork. It came on a bun, but I didn’t eat it (no grains today)
Good thing I said sweet potatoes counted as a veggie for me this month! These were sweet potato fries. I had a couple bites of coleslaw as well. There might have been some kind of starch in the BBQ sauce, but I will just be on faith there. Good dinner!
Afterwards, there was an early concert here:
It was a free concert by the Air Force Wind Quintet! A short program, about an hour and quite enjoyable. It turned out to be a date night! Really does kind of feel like a Friday 😀
