Rainy, rainy morning. No biking today. The people at the cafe also mentioned that fact that we didn’t bike there (might be that we are known for biking around these parts!) It still was supposed to be bagel day, though. Except there were no wheat bagels available. So what did I have instead? Pumpkin coffeecake!
This was good, but I was really full from it. It actually kept me full for hours! Not sure I liked the sugar feeling, though. I definitely don’t eat stuff like this for breakfast very often and not likely to change that.
Work was hard today. Very difficult dictator all day long and it hurts my brain. It always amazes me how being mentally exhausted also makes you physically tired.
I decided to boost my brain with a big protein hit for lunch with chicken salad. This was about 4 ounces of chicken!
Mixed with some mayo, curry powder, chopped apple and grapes. Good stuff.
We have cold weather now. High in the mid 40s, so Pixie was glommed onto me, which is fine.
Then she stretches out.
I had to move her at that point as I don’t type with 1 hand.
I took a break to make the lattes again today, but I skipped the liquor
Along with some nuts:
I finally slogged through work. My brain was totally fried. I couldn’t even think about dinner. I stood there snacking on pretzels. Don’t you love those times? Almost went to get a slice of pizza, but John decided to cook up a cube steak for us. I couldn’t even muster up the energy to cook up any veggie, so I just cut up a pear
One way to get the energy back up up? Hit the gym! My mother and I now belong to the same gym, so we hit the gym tonight. Wednesday night is mother/daughter night and we get together for something. What better than being active?
I made mom go into the Iron Den LOL!

Weird seeing this table at the end, isn’t it? I can’t even remember the last time I did a nighttime gym workout. I think at least a couple years!
It felt good to work out. You never, ever regret a workout.
Afterwards we stopped for a bit of decaf:
Today’s pink item? Soap colorant:
This was used for my big soap order this week.
