Friday 5K

Posted Nov 09 2012 7:11pm

Can I just say how nice it is to see the sunshine?  While still a bit chilly, the sun is very welcome around here.

John told me yesterday that there were 2 weeks until Thanksgiving. 2 weeks!!  Time keeps going by faster and faster.

I went harvest for breakfast today.  The 1 minute ‘ muffle ‘ with apple topping.  Today is grain free, but not necessarily lower carb.

Interesting note – the recipe page for the 1-minute muffin is the most viewed page on my website. It got linked to by a few bigger websites (even though I am not the originator of the recipe).  There was a bit of time a month or two ago where that single page had 1500 hits on it in 1 day.  Crazy.  It’s weird when you get a ton of people come to your blog like that, especially if they never comment even once because it sort of feels like  having a stranger peeping in an open window or something LOL!

Today was the usual Fridayitis, especially with the sun out.  I needed some good protein for lunch, so I made a pumpkin protein shake.    1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 30 grams isolated whey protein (unflavored), 1 teaspoon honey, and cinnamon.

The nuts were for some fat since the protein shake doesn’t have much.

After lunch, I went out for a run.  I decided to go ahead and try a whole 5K today and see how it felt.  I finished in 38 and change, keeping my pace slow and steady.

Done!  This is the first 5K I have run in about 1-1/2 years, I think.

I am now going to show you my running shoes.

Think I need new ones?  Blowing out the sides.  I haven’t bought new ones because I wasn’t sure if I could keep with the running.  I might buy a new pair.  I hate spending money on shoes, honestly.  I am very, very hard on my shoes  and go through them pretty fast, which is annoying because any kind of athletic shoe is expensive!  I may be needing to replace my bike cleats as well fairly soon.

John and I played hooky this afternoon!  I do love Friday when we do this.  It means I shift my work around, but it is worth it! We stopped at Coffee Planet for some Vitamin C.  I love the attention to detail they give on their lattes.

So good, too.  I wish they were open late.  They close at 8 pm, which is too early when we want to do a coffee at night.  That’s why we end up at Starbucks when we would much, much rather be here.

I managed to do some work when I got back until dinner.  I had the most awesome dinner!  I sauteed up some broccoli in coconut oil, added some raw jumbo shrimp and and some of this sauce:

Then just as the cooking was finished, I tossed in some fresh cut pineapple.

This was soooo good!  Easy, too.  The thing that took the longest was cutting up the pineapple  :mrgreen:

It’s now Friday night and I have to get back to work some.  That’s the breaks for hooky time.   John has gone out and Pixie will have to do for my company while I work.

Why did you just wake me up?

FYI – evening snack is ricotta cheese with warmed blueberry sauce.  Definitely one of those good eatin’ type of days!


Biking on the agenda for this weekend – temps in the mid 50s on Sunday! Can you tell I am excited?
