Rest day today! My legs really need it. I was feeling a little bummed looking at last year’s stats for the duathlon. It looks like I will likely come in last or close to it compared to last year’s times. Of course, the reality is that I am not competing against anyone. I keep telling myself it is okay, and I know it is, but it still bothers me a little. Anyone know what I mean? At least I have endurance even if I don’t have speed. I know that athletes train for years to get good at their sports, and I have just started running about 1-1/2 years ago and serious biking for a couple years.
My body wanted carbs today! We drove to Panera instead of biking since I needed a rest day and we needed to grocery shop. French toast bagel and coffee!
Got to work right away. My new account is full of files to do. It was a little depressing as the chunk I have been working on most of the day is the neonatal intensive care unit. Very sad.
Lunch break of Bumblebee tuna sensation.
This was quite good.
Plus an absolutely delicious Macintosh apple. Ironic that the apples came from an apple orchard that we biked by yesterday! Maybe that is why it tasted so good. Wonderfully fresh. Makes you realize how eating local really can make a difference! We are hoping to go out apple picking soon.
I have already lost the football picks this week…. boooo! That means I have to take John out to dinner again.
I had a coupon for a Larabar, which I like but normally don’t buy because I can make them and they are a little spendy. I tried a new flavor:
Yummy! Very clovey. Wonderful paired with my latte.
My folks came over to watch the Broncos/Cowboys game. Pixie says “Time to stop working, mommy!”
She loves to lay on this footstool, no matter what is already on there!
John made a delicious chili for us to eat while I worked. I love my hubby! He used ground beef, white beans (no kidney beans thankyouverymuch), onions, crushed tomatoes and spices simmered in the crockpot all day. I had mine with some pan sauteed brussel sprouts and strawberries.
After dinner, I had a tiny sliver of a fresh pumpkin pie that John also made (is he amazing, or what??). I love fresh pumpkin. Celebrating a Broncos victory! (Sorry Dad!).
Overall very pleased with how I ate today. Sundays are very difficult for me, but maybe it was because I got my snacky day done on Friday
New stage for NROLW tomorrow. Eeeek!
Question: Do you go apple picking?
