Boy – everyone sure made all those favorite cookies sound so good! I’ve got a hankerin’ for some bakerin’!
Last day of the work week for me today! WooHoo! The weather was forecast to be quite warm, so I actually slept in until 7 am today knowing I would run later outside.
Had forthought last night to do some overnight steel cut oats. Soaked them and then added a mashed banana during cooking. Topped with chocolate sauce and almond butter. Yum!
My legs and butt are sore today from the squats I did yesterday. Squats always do that unless I keep doing them! I won’t be doing any lifting tomorrow to rest my muscles for a 5K on Saturday.
Lunch was salad #1 today! I kind of got on this BBQ chicken salad kick. It’s so easy and tastes so good! I warm up the chicken (cooked) and mix it with BBQ sauce, then use feta cheese and sliced almonds.
It’s one of those things that takes 5 minutes (with salad in a bag!) and looks so ‘bistro.’ This was a huge bowl of lettuce, too.
After lunch and my afternoon latte snack, I hit the track. It was 55 degrees today, can you believe that? Cloudy, but great running temperature. I was thinking 4 miles, but told myself to do at least 3. I ended up at 3.75 miles and called it a day. Funny how my legs were so sore moving around, but they don’t feel sore when I run.
John won the football picks this week, and his choice for dinner was Chipotle. (He changed his mind from chinese earlier!). I had another salad for dinner!
Barbacoa on lettuce with some cheese and salsa. Really good! I was really hungry after that run, too.
After dinner, we did a bit of Christmas shopping and got several more people done. Yay! Our dinners seemed a little small, so we decided to split a treat:
Dunkin Donuts chocolate mint donut! This is really good, I have to say. With some decaf coffee. I could easily have eaten a whole donut, but I am glad John split this with me.
Ornament of the day:
It’s Horton! I love Dr. Seuss (as does MizFit), and Horton is one of several Seussian inhabitants on our tree. I grew up loving Dr. Suess books! My very favorite is the Grinch – that is my very favorite Christmas special on TV, too (not the Jim Carrey one, ick!).
Question: What is your favorite Christmas special?
