Happy Monday! I am so glad you all enjoy our biking recaps. They really are so much fun for me. I decided to take it a little easier today and just do some lifting, but no cardio other than the bike to and from the gym (which barely counts). I have noticed that it is darker and darker now. I am going to have to shift my gym time a little later in the coming weeks while I am still biking so it is light out! I usually leave the house a little before 7.

I did incline push ups today because my left biceps/shoulder area has been bothering me the last couple weeks with any pushing motions. So, I eased up on the move.
Cool and damp day today. I got home craving hot coffee and protein waffles! I also wanted to eat really clean because I ate too much food at a party yesterday.
We have a busy time going on right now. September is kind of the wrap up to the family doings before we hit the holiday kickoff. Both of my nieces have birthdays, my sister and BIL have an anniversary, John and I have our anniversary, my MIL has a birthday, and my mom has a birthday! That is a busy month, especially this week we are currently in. Here are a couple pictures from the party yesterday.
We never had ponies at our parties…
I consumed too much pizza and Doritos, although I declined any cake (like it really made a difference at that point).
Anyway, back to today. Lunch time! I actually found some bleu cheese Laughing Cow at a different store on Saturday, which was just screaming to have some sort of buffalo chicken thing made out of it. Enter the open faced sammie – aka “uitsmijter”
This was a slice of toast spread with laughing cow, topped with cooked chicken breast and Frank’s! I have to say it was quite good. I had a bunch of strawberries on the side that somehow escaped the lens.
Trying to cram too much into a day. I got half of that big soap order shipped out. It’s done, it just needs to get out the door. Plus working and thinking about getting ready for my trip this weekend. Got lots to do this week!
I desperately needed my latte today:
No honey or chocolate drizzle because today is a no-added sugar day. I actually had to plan this day in because I have 2 dinners out this week at least – and not sure what is happening Friday other than being on the road during dinner.
No sugar also meant changing up my snack I usually have with the latte:
I do tend to want to over do the nuts on no-sugar days.
Baked clam strips are back in the house! We stocked up (along with the bleu cheese LC) at Price Chopper.
So I see that Kellogg’s has put out a completely evil product. Have you seen these?
I have to confess to a love of Pop Tarts. I almost never eat them, but I have a biog soft spot for them (somewhere around my left mid thigh, I think). I have to think long and hard about getting these…
