Hey! I’m happy to report that everyone seems to be back in good health at my place. Amen! And I slept like a rock last night. Amazing. It occurred to me in the shower this morning that I was such a zombie yesterday morning that I totally skipped my moisturizing step! I haven’t missed that in years. I had enough bounce in my step after such a good sleep that I made it downstairs to the kitchen 5 minutes earlier than usual. Spare time…YES! LOL That meant my breakfast wasn’t rushed.
-1 cup water
-1/2 cup spelt flakes
Simple, filling, delicious. ‘Nuff said.
All morning I was excited to get into the gym for a power walk. It’s always nice to have something to look forward to, right? I found a lonely Sencha Tea Bar among the many Clif & Lunas in my basket:
I wish these guys were more readily available around here because I love the texture of them. They’re chalk full of seeds! Check it out…
I found a few of these in the colder months at Winner’s, but they don’t seem to have them anymore. I’ll have to see if I can source them out in Canada. Any fellow Canuck seen them around???
Back to my walk; it was glorious! I set the pace to 4.2mph and the incline at 7%. AND, I chatted with a co worker who just started coming to the gym (YAY!) for 20 huffing minutes.

Speaking of finding lonely (food) things, I happened upon a forgotten about Fage that had been pushed to the back of the fridge last night. That little honey quickly became my lunch! HA! I mixed in a scoop of Crofter’s Superfruit jam and the last of my granola.
The expiry date on the yogurt said “April 18/10”, but when it comes to yogurt/cottage cheese/sour cream that has not been opened yet, I don’t pay much mind to the dates. Unless, of course, it’s months past. I just make sure to use it all up in a speedy manner once it has been opened. How much attention to do pay to expiration dates???
There’s a fella at work who runs an organic vegetable farm nearby and this year is running a kin of CSA at the office. Basically, he will email what he’s got in season and whoever wants some just has to reply with how much. This week was asparagus and I bought 2 bunches, $3 each:
Shortly after eating we left for Pilates class.
Now that I’m back I’m sipping a hot coffee (decaf) and just noshed on a granola bar (no photo). I’m excited to see that at almost 8pm, the sky is still bright! Love it! I’ll be settling in to watch the Biggest Loser momentarily then it’ll be bed time for me. Did you do anything out of the ordinary tonight?
