I slept much better last night, but feel worse today. Not horrible or anything, just worse than yesterday. AGH! I did manage to get out of bed on time this morning, though! I even got some supper in the crock pot before leaving! But first was breakie:
-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-peaches & blueberries
Combo made in heaven. It’s true!
This is not typical of what I would normally buy, but for $3.99, I knew I could make it work! ;)
I wasn’t feeling spunky enough for a run or anything along those lines today, but a nice walk was more than doable. Before heading over to the gym I ate one of the bars that Cassie sent me:
It was good. It reminded me of the Nature’s Valley Dark Chocolate granola bars only a bit denser.
So I walked at 4mph with a 7% incline today. I thought (think) my calories count looked pretty high so I checked the settings on my Polar to make sure they didn’t get wonky again, but everything was set OK. I did do some talking while walking and I guess my heart was working a little harder due to this cold…..I dunno.

Yesterday before I leaving worked I stopped in the kitchen to grab something just in time for them to bring loads of meeting leftovers in. SCORE! I grabbed a wrap for the kid’s lunches and a soup for myself. That is what I ate for lunch today. It was a thick beef vegetable type of soup so before heating it I added a good ½ cup of water to loosen it up some:
I also toasted an Ezekiel English muffin and spread a little butter on it.
Made for a great dipper! I also ate some fruit later on in the day.
Most of the honeydew got pitched. I’m kinda over honeydew lately.
Dinner had to be early and fast tonight because DS had an out of town hockey game and had to leave at 5p. DD and I stayed back to get to Pilate’s. I pulled out my trusty crock pot and filled it with chicken bones that I always have on hand. (Whenever I make chicken of any kind, I save the bones in a large Ziploc bag in the freezer). Then I topped the insert off with cold water and set it to low. I guess it was on a good 9 hours. When I got home I strained it, brought it back to a boil, added ravioli for the fam and brown rice for me (in another pot), added a can of mixed veggies and we were good to go!
I find these minis the perfect snack size, BTW! And and just know sipping on a cup of decaf. I’ve got my fingers crossed that DS’s team won. Guess I’ll find out soon enough!
Don’t forget, you can ask me anything right here!
Bye for now!!
