It was a nice cool morning today. It had rained, so the air was fresh. I decided to do a run outside today. No lifting today, so I didn’t need to go to the gym. I hit the pavement for a good 3 mile run. It felt good. Once the long ride is done this weekend, I am going to do more running because I have to start training for the duathlon!
I was hungry when I got back. Pumpkin can had been opened earlier in the week, so I incorporated that into breakfast.
Pumpkin custard cream of wheat topped with crystalized ginger and burnt toasted pecans.
Conference call at work today. Sometimes I worry about my job with this company. Another reason why I took on the other one.
Lunch break was standard. I need to do some different stuff for lunches.
So, since I am not lifting anymore this week in a taper down/rest week before my big ride this weekend, there is no lifting move of the week today. However, I thought I would take a moment to link to all the videos that I have done so far in case there is one that you have missed As always, feel free to comment on my form (good or bad), as I am not a trainer or anything.
Youtube was being funny tonight, so hopefully these links will work. Dang – I have done a lot of these!
I like these bars. They are the store brand organic bars. Simple ingredients and 150 calories. Not much protein, though.
I was feeling an omelet for dinner! It came out perfect.
Filled with sauteed broccoli and feta cheese. Yum. And a bowl of fruit on the side:
I laughed at some of the comments yesterday about me putting cinnamon on the cantaloupe. I put cinnamon on pretty much anything, but not normally melons. It’s just this cantaloupe was so blah. Not sweet and pretty tasteless, which was a bummer.
John did some clothes shopping tonight with a gift certificate. The store was in Saratoga, so we headed down and decided to go out for coffee for a change
This is Saratoga Coffee Traders:
Comfy and casual. Plus free wifi – so I am blogging while enjoying my latte:
They do an awesome latte here. So, so much better than Starbucks, but Starbucks is only 7 miles from home whereas this place is 15+ miles away.
And just in case you really wanted a video today, here is Pixie doing what she does best – napping! I woke her up for you.
Don’t you love how I can get my hand in her stomach and she doesn’t even care? I would do a Facebook page for her, but her status would always be sleeping. Laziest.cat.ever….
