Ahhh… back to regularly scheduled programming 😀 Glad you enjoyed the BOW posts. It was a very nice weekend and such a great program to try things you never might think of doing in a very accessible way. Women just rock anyway…
We had some fierce storms blow through last night and it was a crap-filled road for riding today. John had a flat. He had one the other day. Brand new tube and came out today and that one was flat as well. Our tire luck is flipping unbelievable this year. So, he decided to walk while I rode around. It takes about 25 minutes to walk there, so I got in a little over 5 miles of riding and met him there.
Bagel! I haven’t had a bagel since before the weekend! I keep thinking about making my own bagels, but I don’t really need to have more than the 2 a week I normally have. Or do I??
Then I biked around more before heading home. A good day for riding, but a squidge humid.
The last couple of days, I needed to food detox. While my general meals were pretty good at the workshop, the food on Sunday was not what I am used to eating, and then I got wanting chocolate and stuff because of that, I think. So, I had 2 no sugar days and no grain days Monday and Tuesday and really felt good by this morning!
Having grains today. With lunch:
Plain greek yogurt, berries, and Kashi Heart to Heart.
This week is a little slower for work. I think there is the preholiday slow down going on. John made up some cookies to take to his poker game tonight, and I snagged one to have with my latte. He used the recipe on the chip bag, but subbed wheat flour with some peanut flour and some of the butter with coconut oil.
I hope very, very few of these cookies come back home with him.
During the slow times, I watched a cute birdie friend visit the feeder a lot today. I think this is a very young sparrow:
I love the birdies. Well, I just like nature in general.
I made a new discovery for my salads this week. Cooked broccoli makes a nice addition to salad! I don’t like broccoli raw, and I wanted more substantial veggies on my salad, so I sauteed up some broccoli and added it.
The typical BBQ chicken/feta mix with the broccoli. It was tasty. Who knew?
I normally visit with my mom on Wednesdays, but she was busy tonight, so I thought I was going to spend the evening solo. Then my sister texted that she was dropping by! Her dog Georgia had surgery a couple weeks ago because she ate a bunch of things she wasn’t supposed to and they had to remove part of her intestines. 😯 Tonight the stitches came out, so that was why Colleen was in town. Here is Georgia:
It took about 10 pictures to get this shot. Never work with kids or animals, right?
Colleen also brought my belated birthday gift:
It’s a little garden cart that I can keep on the front porch and store all of my tools and stuff! It has a removable pad there for kneeling and a couple cup holders. Yay!
Now I am munching on some cashews and trying to avoid cleaning the litter pan…
Question: How easy is it for you to get back on track after an indulgent weekend?
