It was all the way up to 0 degrees when I got up. It’s a heat wave! Funny how much warmer that felt than -27. It’s all relative. I headed out to the gym for some walking and full body lifting.

The gym was so cold today. Apparently the furnace conked out again yesterday (of all days!!) and no fixing it this time. They need to get a replacement. I couldn’t even touch the dumbbells because they were so cold. I will run tomorrow, which should keep me warm.
I was ready for breakfast today! I planned out all my foods in livestrong.com for today last night. Then I forgot after I made breakfast that I was going to do a different topping for my waffles, but ended up with blueberries. The idea of writing down is so that you follow the plan, right?
A box arrived for me today. I finally upgraded my phone. I had one of those old ones with only numbers, so texting was a real PITA. Plus it randomly called John out of the blue, so who knows if it did it to anyone else. When I went to upgrade I could do a nice phone because it was 4 years since my last one! Ooops. I am not a big phone user, it’s the computer for me.
I got an LG Cosmos with a keyboard. Cool. Yeah, I know everyone else has an iPhone, but it just doesn’t fit in the budget. Not with a new half bath to be put in!
Lunch time! Amping up the protein today for the lifting. I had some cat food… errr I mean tuna. Lemon pepper, to be exact.
Need to make some different seasonings. Time to get more hummus! Suzi has a challenge this week to get in more fruits and veggies, so I joined in. Fruit is never a problem, but veggies can be.
Doing work for the orthopedic clinic and there are so many ski related injuries as of late! I tried down hill once and didn’t enjoy it very much. I did like cross country, though. Without insurance, I am not likely to try downhill again, though. Broken clavicle is the most common injury so far this season. Then torn meniscus.
I’ll stick with sledding, like we did last weekend:
That’s kind of how I stop when skiing, too.
Latte with 1/2 scoop of whey isolate in there. I loves me some protein!
I had set out some clementines to eat with the latte, but I wasn’t that hungry. My appetite has been low today. What a relief! Usually I could pretty much eat all the time (and sometimes do). Not sure what is suppressing it today, but I will take it.
More light box playing for dinner! I definitely need another light on the other side.
This pita had scrambled eggs, laughing cow and the requisite hot sauce. I almost burned my brussel sprouts, too, but they came out quite good. I think that pan sauteing them in coconut oil is my favorite cooking method.
I have a bit of work to finish up tonight and then I will have a snack later of a couple mint cups.
Don’t they look giant? I’ll post about the light box tomorrow. I’m likin’ it.
Question: Do you ski?
