I feel organized today – most of my work complete, to-do list reviewed, a new jewelry sorting system underway, dishes done, things at right angles…. 8)
Started the day with a mini pancake and jam –
If you want to know how good my sense of smell is:
This morning I walked into the Y and thought there was the faintest smell of ginger cookies. Just a hint, like there was some distant oven baking some in the locker rooms. When I got up to the scanner and said hello to my lady friend who works the 5 a.m. shift I said “It smells just like ginger cookies in here!” and she smiled and pulled out a little baggie of 3 of them from behind the counter and said a man had given them to her earlier. Now had they been baking IN the Y, I wouldn’t think too much of it – most people can smell baking cookies! – but these had obviously not been baked that morning (unless the man made them at 4:30 a.m.) which means I sniffed them out dry. Too bad so many people like onions – I can smell them a mile away 👿
Anyways, I did 30 minutes on the Stairmaster, 16 on the funky elliptical with a good magazine, and 10 minutes abs (still loving the ab roller!) and stretching. 426 kcal burned.
You suggested, I listened! Almond butter:
SOOOO good in oatmeal. I love almond butter but hesitate to buy it because it costs about 125% more than the natural PB I buy. But I decided for the sake of variety to buy a jar when I saw that my grocery store now makes a little bit more affordable store brand. I’m hoping to make it last a looooooooong time!
Served over rolled oats made with 1/2 skim milk, 1/2 a banana, cinnamon, brown sugar, ground flax and walnuts –
With Butter Toffee Coffee –
Breakfast kcal ~450 + 100 for pancake = 550.
