I must’ve had turpentine up my bum this morning because I was ahead of the game right from the get go! I was out of the shower, downstairs packing lunches, eating breakfast and out the door way sooner than normal! You watch, tomorrow I will be rushing around like a mad woman! LOL!

I’m really enjoying the addition of kefir to my oats. It makes them unbelievably creamy and lush.
Work whipped along at a pretty decent pace today. I brought a raspberry oatmeal muffin to snack on before going to the gym:
Speaking of the gym; I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do there today. I knew I wanted to go, but nothing was sounding appealing. I ended up starting out with a 20 minute walk at 4.1mph with a 7% incline. Then I ran for 25 minutes at 6.1mph with a 0.5% incline. I finished up with 5 minutes of walking the same as how I started. Turned out to be a great workout!

I ate the quinoa stew that I had brought for lunch yesterday today.
I chased that with 2 caramel filled chocolates.
Lucky for me that I got 2 of these as they were the only ones left! My kidlets must’ve gotten into the box. HA!
One of the ladies at the office retired today so there was a big do at 3pm for her with cake and squares and funny stories. I helped myself to one of the smaller pieces of chocolate cake and a raspberry coconut square.
Peeps, as much as I lurve me some chocolate in any form, the square kicked ass. I purposely stayed away from that part of the building for the rest of the afternoon because I just knew I’d take another. And that is just being piggy, no?
The only thing on the agenda for tonight was swimming lessons and they don’t start until 7pm so I had some time to roast a pork tenderloin for dinner. I put ½ a big onion and some mini potatoes in the pan, too. I used one of the kids “divider” plates to eat my dinner off of because I also had a small salad with honey Dijon dressing and some pineapple pieces. I am one of “those” people who hates my food touching! Haha!
Doesn’t that avocado look awesome?!
And now I have a coffee (and to be honest, a chocolate chip cookie!) and plan to watch a little Law & Order: SVU. How did you spend your evening?
Bye for now!!
