Friday: Ninja’s made me do it
My run this morning was non-existent. I didn’t even want to leave the house. I was up on time, no problem there. Just didn’t feel like doing anything. But I still forced myself to at least go for a walk. And later, since the walk wasn’t enough, I did 5 miles on my bike. Made me feel a little bit better about the day.
Walk 2.0 miles/32min.
Bike 5.25 miles / 28min
I am trying a couple of new things with my eating today. First is ice cold water. But I have to get all of that in fairly early or I will be peeing all night. The other new thing is that I have moved my snacks to the morning and moved my lunch later. I am hoping this will help with my afternoon snacking. Although if I really feel hungry I will still have fruit or carrots. But that brings up another issue. I am a boredom eater. So when do I really feel hungry? Not sure I can remember when. Need to work on that.
I had my usual coffee and protein bar for breakfast. Then I had most of a peach (wasn’t that good) and a nectarine.
Lunch was around 2pm and I had two eggs, turkey sausage and an english muffin.
I wanted to make a nice dinner. So I marinated a flank steak for the grill. With a sweet potato (small), corn and a glass of red wine.
So every once in a while…..Oh who am I kidding, it happens all the time….I get a need for something new. Not just something new, the best something new I can find. This time, it was a blender. This all stems from making freezer daiquiri’s last weekend (see above picture and link to recipe). I about burned up our crappy, old Oster blender and then gave quite a workout to my Cuisinart blender as well. Consumer Reports, here I come. And it just so happened that their Best Buy was a $60 Ninja Prep Pro. Not only that, but Sam’s Club had it for $45!
I put it in the cabinet. I wonder how long it will take Michael to notice it or that the old blender is in the laundry room.
