It’s the new bagel day! Slept in until about 7, which was really nice. Fueled up with a bubbly protein drink and biked to Cool Beans.
It was a very nice morning for a ride. I do have to say that my legs were actually sore after my workout yesterday. I hardly ever get sore anymore. Must be the deadlifts.
Debby brought up a point about wondering the difference between a squat and a deadlift. If you use dumbbells, there really is no difference. When you move to the bar, you have the barbell on your shoulder shelf behind your back for a squat versus in front of you with the deadlift. When you use a barbell, those 2 moves feel very, very different from each other.
I totally refined it today with a sesame seed bagel. It was really good. I haven’t had one of those in years! I got it because the other bagels looked really dinky.
Nice tailwind for the ride home afterwards. I didn’t push or anything because of the sore legs. I have a race on Saturday, so I am completely resting tomorrow.
Last day of the work week for job #1. Yay! The day went slow on that front though. Plodded through files today.
Lunch break included something sent to me by Attune Foods!
This cereal is good. It is not sweet at all (1 g of sugar per serving), so I think it would be good used as a breading for chicken or other savory dishes. Might have to try that. It’s got 10 grams of fiber per serving, too 😯
I also had the last of the blueberry muffins I made the other day. This meal kind of looked like a breakfast LOL.
Watched more of the Tour in and out while working. I wish Andy had been able to shake Contador, but no dice. They both worked so hard. It’s actually good to see no hard feelings between them. Think Contador has it pretty much wrapped up unless something drastic happens. Now it’s back to watching Cavendish and Petaki (sp??).
Afternoon break of a latte and a Luna bar.
I was really hungry. I must have jinxed myself saying I wasn’t feeling snacky lately.
I spent the next couple hours trying not to snack. I was not hungry, but I think I was just wanting to avoid work. I kept saying to myself to go ahead and eat, but then I somehow got a handle on it and waited until dinner. (Who is this lady?)
Dinner was something different. I wanted a BBQ chicken wrap, but decided to put it in the waffle iron to heat it up. Sort of panini style.
Very tasty. This pile of brussel sprouts was only 4 sprouts (is that what a single one is called??). They were ginormous! Sliced thin and sauteed in coconut oil, salt, and pepper. My favorite way to eat them.
I just finished up work for job #1 for the whole week, so I only have job #2 tomorrow. Yay! I will work some on Friday, but Saturday is my no work day ever. The one day I have to spend with John, so nobody gets to interrupt it unless I say so.
Evening snack will be some bread with nut butter. I just made up a loaf of maple oatmeal bread. Yummers.
Be back tomorrow with some more garden blooms. Couple new things popped open this week!
Question: Have you ever tried Uncle Sam’s?
