Yay the weekend! We also are getting some warmer temperatures as well. I think we will be in the low 40s on Saturday. Heat wave! 🙄 I am noticing the days getting longer. Lighter a little later and not so dark on my way to the gym this morning.
I got my butt up and went today since I didn’t yesterday. Not terribly crowded. I think I found the sweet spot time, which is 7 am.

I did these as supersets to work up more of a sweat since I have lightened up the weights. I burned through my pre-workout protein quaff pretty quick.
I came home to make the 5-minute flax waffle with blueberries.
I tried to eat this slow, but breakfast is one of those things I tend to wolf down because I am hungry. Even when I have something pre-workout.
I cheered on the Broncos with my mug:
I have a feeling it is going to be an ugly game this weekend…
I had a hard time getting started with work today. Friday-itis big time. There was a lot to do, though, so that helped. I had my lap girl with me.
This is how she crams herself onto my lap since I have the laptop on there as well. You wouldn’t think that was comfortable, but she will stay there the entire time I am working until I move her. At least she is warm 😀
John made up some clam chowder last night, so that was on the menu for lunch. He uses this recipe, but subbed milk for cream:
Of course, I added a few dashes of hot sauce! Delicious. Thanks John!
So, this weekend will be my first real challenge. Normally I am pretty relaxed eating wise on weekends. Like a lot of us, I guess. I have my 90/10 plan in place. I get 3.5 meals/snacks to have fun with and I used one up on Wednesday. I know I am having a pizza wrap tomorrow as my winning football dinner and then Sunday morning is the typical bagel day (the original Bagel Day). That leaves 1 snack to think about, probably a cookie with a latte or something. I know I can not nibble my way through the weekend if I put my mind to it. Wish me luck.
John made up lattes as well. I love a man who cooks and makes me coffee. Yep, I am lucky!
We don’t always eat the same foods, but we always have a latte in the afternoon in the winter.
Dinner tonight? An omelet with some sausage cooked in. We found our grocery store carries some local meats and this sausage was made in Saratoga and is really, really good. It’s actually surprisingly lean, too.
I spread it with a Laughing Cow wedge. This was really good, too. Might have to make some sausage gravy, which I haven’t had in eons!
We are going to have a relaxing night tonight. I have these set out for a snack:
Funny, I did not use flash for this picture (I never do for food shots), but it sure looks like I did. It’s the overhead light in the kitchen that did that.
Anyway, that will be paired with some decaf coffee tonight.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
