Howdy! I took lots of pictures yesterday, so I’ll just get to it, K? Yesterday morning was a gloriously lazy one. As in I didn’t even get out of my PJ’s until 1pm! I enjoyed my breakfast at a leisurely pace:
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup rye flakes
I attempted to catch up with blog reading over the course of the morning. I actually made a decent sized dent. Before long it was time to eat some lunch. I wanted to keep it light because I knew we were having a big dinner. I ate more salad with the last of my honey mustard dressing from Manon.
That “shell” was spectacular! Light, crisp and just a touch of salt. The choices for the main entree were baseball sirloin or half a Cajun style chicken (both served with roasted potatoes and veggies) or seafood fettuccini. I went with the chicken for my meal. Along with the potatoes and veg, it was served with some delicious jalapeno corn bread.

We got home from the restaurant shortly after 7pm and practically dove into our PJ’s. BLISS!!! I watched the Amazing Race (GO cowboys!!) and some other random TV before hitting the sack.
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup Quaker oats
- carob chips, pecan pieces and kefir
Work was extremely busy today because I had Friday off to go to Toronto. Days off are always something that we pay for, eh? Sheesh! I’m on 11:30 lunch today so that came around real quick. I munched on an oatmeal raisin walnut Clif bar, courtesy of Sara:
At the gym I completed an intense incline walk. (4mph, 7% incline)
- Time: 45 minutes
- Avg Hr: 168
- Max Hr: 183
- Calories Torched: 495
- Distance: 3 miles
I was SO sweaty after this walk. The treadmill I was on seems to be calibrated differently than the other because this same walk seems much harder on the one I was using.
I whipped up some pasta for the fam tonight using some sauce that I had pulled out of the freezer this morning. I dug into my leftovers from dinner last night. What? You didn’t think I polished off that huge plate, did you? LOL!!
Thankfully, only 4 pieces came home with us so that is now a cake of the past!! I don’t really have any plans for the rest of the night which is pretty swell as far as I’m concerned. While this is publishing I’m gonna make a sugar cookie tea to sip on as I enjoy my night of nothingness….
Bye for now!!
