Okay – I guess I am not alone leaving my nails buff nekkid! It just seemed like I read a lot about manicures, but then after thinking about it, why would one announce that they were *not* doing their nails? (lightbulb moment).
Today was the start of week 5 for Couch to 5K. I can’t believe it is week 5 of that already! This week has 3 different workouts. Today was a 5 minute warm up, then 5 minute run/3 minute walk with 3 repetitions. Sometimes the walking irritates me because I am one of those persons who will plow through something until it is done and hates to stop.
I came in and started a banana bread breakfast pudding and got a pot of coffee brewing. It was 50 degrees out for my run today! I love the mornings at this time of year here in the Adirondacks
Also a note on my pumpkin. I stash pumpkin. After the shortage a couple years ago, I totally learned my lesson. I can’t believe I am going to share a secret, but check the little mom and pop grocery stores for pumpkin. That is where I get a majority of my pumpkin stash from when the big stores are out.
My grain for the day was included in lunch. I got this box at Aldi’s and it was only $2.
I forgot this stuff is cracknola. I think it might have been a mistake to buy it as I forgot how much I loooooooove this stuff.
I had half a serving with some Fage 2% and strawberries. Yummers.
I was having a hard time focusing on work today. You know the kind of day I mean. A little work… a little email… a little work… a little facebook.
Then it was latte time!
The rest of the afternoon crept by. I just was not motivated to work, but I pressed on and finally finished. Just in time for dinner!
The big BBQ chicken salad with feta cheese. Nom, nom.
I spent the better part of the evening after dinner making up some orange marmalade. I hope this comes out as it is for my jam exchange. Damn this was a lot of work!
I thought peach jam was a lot of work, but this was definitely more. That’s why I like making the berry jams. Much easier
If this cools down and sets up enough, I might be having some on top of ricotta cheese for a snack! It’s either that or ice cream down the street
Tomorrow is bagel day! Bagel day! I haven’t had a bagel in over 3 weeks.
