So after Friday & Saturday’s over indulgences, I decided that it was time to get things back on track! Like I said before, it’s all about balance, right? I woke up bright and early for a date with the treadmill. I did 45 minutes of run/walk intervals, followed with some hills at the end which brought me about 3 1/4 miles. Unfortunately, the asthma was kicking in a little, which was why the walking intervals had to make an appearance. (Yes, asthma, it’s a lovely thing!) Either way, it still felt good to get moving again!
After showering and getting ready, I knew I had to breakfast QUICK so I could go watch the hubby in action at his flag football game! Well, here’s how all this went down…I decided on instant oatmeal. Not my fave, but for time’s sake, I figured it was a good bet. Quaker Wild Maine Blueberry mixed with about 1/3 cup fresh blueberries, 2/3 cup water, and half a piece of my low-fat banana blueberry bread crumbled on top.
So how was it you ask? Well, I’d like to be able to tell you it was delicious, but sadly I cannot because I DROPPED MY BOWL and spilled the oatmeal all over the place! My favorite Pier 1 bowl, shattered, and breakfast, doomed! I guess that’s what I get for rushing! Since I was already running late, I quick grabbed a slice of my banana blueberry bread and a fuji apple for the road.
So here’s a picture of the game! Let me tell you, anytime I tried to take a photo, someone on the sidelines was ALWAYS in front of me! GRRR! This was the only decent one, and if you peek between the guy in the sweatshirt and #22, you can see Jay kicking a field goal! It was GOOD! YAY HUBBY!
After the game was over, (they won!) I was in need of some caffeine, which I had planned on getting before! I took a drive into downtown to one of my FAVORITE spots, Flavour Cafe.
Flavour Cafe has over 40 flavors of coffee, and man are they GOOD! In addition to coffee, they have some awesome breakfast sandwiches and wraps. Jay and I often like to treat ourselves here on the weekends, since luckily for my wallet, I don’t pass this place everyday to work!
And OH MY, did I mention the sweets??? I’m still getting used to being the “photographer” while I’m out, so I was a kinda afraid to get up too close to the case! But trust me, there were some scrumptious looking pastries, cookies, and cupcakes in there! I can attest to the “yumminess” of the cookies and cupcakes…yup, DELICIOUS!
So my coffee choice for today was iced Chocolate Raspberry, with skim milk and 2 splenda. (I’m trying to ween myself off of the splenda, but having some trouble…)
Holy cow, someone needs a manicure! YIKES! I think I may have to take care of that later! On the agenda for the rest of the day
-Reading (The Pact by Jodi Picoult, awesome book!)
-Cooking a turkey breast! (That way we’ll hopefully have some leftovers for during the week!)
-Getting things ready to get back to work tomorrow (I’ve been on vacation for a week, and I’m not good with transitioning back to things…ughhhh!)
Hope you’re off to a great Sunday! It’s a beautiful day out! 8)
