Bitter cold this morning. One of those days where the stairs crack and pop on the porch I headed out to the gym for my run. The plan was to do 5 miles, but I was not feeling it today. I think it was likely the blood donation yesterday. I slogged through 2 miles and had the speed at 5.5 mph. Normally I get a first wave of tired after 1.5 miles and then after 2 I’m okay. Today didn’t feel good. I normally increase the speed after 2 miles, but my heartrate was 160 at 5.5 mph! I knew something was up there and decided no speed work and no faster. I stopped after 4 miles, choosing to listen to my body say it just needed to quit there. Still 4 miles, though
Came home freezing cold just from going from the gym to home. Wind chills of below 0 today. Ugh. I made a toasty warm bowl of banana cream of wheat topped with almond butter and jam.
One thing about cream of wheat and oat bran is that they hold heat like the dickens! John said we should insulate our house in cream of wheat, which I am sure the mice would love
Also some liquid love of cafe au lait to help warm me up:
Pixie has been a complete heat-seeking lap missile today. She is stuck to me like glue. I think she really likes the snuggie, too
Lunch was more tuna. We got a pick 4 pack (12 cans) of tuna at BJs. I think I am going to be tired of tuna again pretty soon!
Using up more corporate waffles as bread. Changed it up with strawberries at lunch, though!
I think I need to mince the broccoli if I am going to try to make omelets with it, because the omelet just falls apart. Still tasted good, though.
I turned down an offer to go out for coffee tonight, can you believe it? I just can’t bear the thought of going out in wind chill of -11 degrees! You know it’s cold if I won’t go for coffee…. The weather is making us so excited for our cruise in the beginning of Feb! Not sure if I wrote about this or not, but we are cruising to Mexico. The best part is that the cruise leaves from New Orleans (!!!!), so we are there for a couple days before the ship leaves and we can stuff our faces with beignets.
Then the ship goes to the Yucatan and Cozumel. This is the first vacation for John and I of more than a weekend in 3 years! We deserve it. I’ll be blogging on the trip, too – which will be fun. Can you believe the cruise ship has wi-fi? This will be our 2nd cruise. The first was about 10 years ago, which was also to the Caribbean. How time flies!
Question: Have you ever cruised before?
