It was so dark this morning when I woke up and the flannel sheets were so comfy. It was really hard to get out of bed this morning! I contemplated either hitting the gym in the evening or going on Friday. Normally, I don’t do this. I just wake up and get up. So, I got up and had a protein drink, which meant I had to go lift!

The squats are tough for me. They are harder than they used to be and I can’t squat as heavy as I once did because it causes pain in my thigh. I can’t seem to go heavier than this, but the lighter bar has been easier the last couple of times.
I have a bunch of new readers now according to my stats. Probably because of the First for Women article and another mention. Anyway, I thought I would post my squat video so other ladies won’t be afraid to get in the squat cage and do them. Once you are squatting with 20# dumbbells in each hand, you can certainly get in the rack with an empty bar.
Love the iron gals and it will love you back!
I came home wondering what to have for breakfast and John had made something with pumpkin, so that made up my mind. Pumpkin oats topped with craisins and toasted pecans.
Yum! I got right to work today, although I was finding it hard to concentrate. You know those kind of days, close to the weekend and all that. Pixie was doing her job guarding the bird feeder:
Lunch time was more protein. I mixed up some peanut flour, which I get from netrition.com and put it on a toasted coconut biscuit.
I really like the peanut flour. I just mix it with cinnamon, a touch of honey and a tiny pinch of salt with the water. 16 grams of protein and 110 calories per serving of it, which comes out to around 4 tablespoons or more. I actually ate some off a spoon before spreading it on there.
I could barely wait for latte time today with the now functioning steamer wand!
Lots and lots of foam today.
Happy latte lady today 😀
Well, John won the football picks, so he wanted his dinner out tonight. He chose the Fish Fry Cafe.
It’s about a mile and a half from our house. Very small and homey feeling.
Complete with a huge grandfather clock. 😀
They have a mix and match section of the menu that I browsed through. I had the seafood chowder:
Very, very good! This was my side item to my scallops. Served on a plastic fish-shaped plate.
With a name like Fish Fry Cafe, you would probably think most of the menu was fried, and you would be right. These scallops were quite good. And so were the little hushpuppies on the side. We keep wondering why we don’t come here more often as the prices are very reasonable and the food is good. Probably because it’s fried.
The lucky winner:
That is supposed to be a victory sign, but I think he looks like he is about to poke me in the eyes! 😯
Now to relax tonight and read some Wheat Belly. But first, a ride on the bike trainer to burn off a couple of those hush puppies!
