Hey – a Saturday post Just for the heck of it. Ever have a day where you just feel full of energy? I had one of those today. I got about 7-1/2 hours of sleep, and maybe that is why. I woke up ready to get in some exercise, but decided I would have a good breakfast first. Enter the fluff and coconut oats!
40 grams of oats
1 small banana mashed
5 g (1 tbsp) of cocoa powder
dash of cinnamon (okay a few dashes…
1 cup water
1/4 cup liquid egg whites
unsweetened coconut, toasted
I read some blogs and stuff and then suited up to ride the trainer. I took up a travel mug with some cafe au lait in it as well. I could really get used to coffee on a ride LOL! I ended up doing 30 miles in 1-1/2 hours. The time flew by and I really almost didn’t want to get off (which is a little scary). John actually brought his breakfast up and and in the room while I was riding. That was fun.
Then after I got cleaned up, I headed out to the smokehouse and stocked up on meat. I was fairly hungry when I got home and got into the chipotle chex mix.
X2. I should have just made lunch, as I let myself get too hungry. So, I decided to go ahead and eat after that. I cut up a chicken sausage and sauteed it with broccoli and teriyaki stirfry sauce. Nice big plate of food here!
John and I then went out and started our Christmas shopping. The mall was surprisingly not crowded. Maybe everybody is waiting until Black Friday? Found a few things, which always feels good. I normally like to be mostly done by the time the beginning of December rolls around and completely avoid the malls and such.
Santa’s House is up and receiving visitors – although he was out to lunch or something.
Is your soul feeling a little dull and drab? Have some of this!
We were in the Dollar store as this store is great for wrapping paper and bags and I saw this. You certainly do find some weird stuff there.
You know we had to have a coffee break, right? Off to Fortunate Cup. I like the atmosphere here:
I had a skim latte and a tiny biscotti. Very tiny.
That meant I had to steal some bites of John’s cupcake
Using up leftovers in the fridge for dinner. Tomorrow is shopping day for the week and for the Thanksgiving dishes that we will be bringing on Thursday.
BBQ chicken salad. This was some super hot BBQ sauce I forgot we had in the fridge. I decided that I don’t like it very much. All heat and no flavor.
Now is time to relax with a couple dark chocolate mint cups, and dare I say that I will be in my jammies by 7:30 pm?
Question: Are you an early holiday shopper or a last minute one?
