Things I Like


Happy Leap Day!

Snow is here!  Our first real major storm – can you believe it?  And on Leap Day, too.  Does Hallmark make a card for Leap Day?  I wouldn’t be surprised.

The snow didn’t start until the afternoon, so we were free and clear for Bagel Day this morning!  I love bagel day.

In truth, Wednesday we actually call Bagel Day junior because official Bagel Day is Sunday.  We tried to keep it to 1 day a week, but it’s hard.  Back in our fat days, John and I often would go 5 or 6 days a week for breakfast out, either bagels, coffeecake or muffins.  Always with sweet coffee.  How times have changed.  You know that thing called moderation?  We found our level of moderation with the bagels now.

I had literacy tutoring today and I stopped work in time enough to have a quick lunch today before I left.

1-minute muffin done 1-minute style!  This was the applesauce version, which is the version I almost always make anymore.

After the tutoring, I walked home in the snow.  It started to get serious around 1 p.m.

Will have to shovel soon. My arms are not too sore today from yesterday’s workout.  They actually only are  sore when I lift my arms up over my head.  Last night, I went to carry a laundry basket upstairs that was full and had some wet stuff in it for hanging.  I couldn’t pick it up enough to get it up the stairs and had to have John take it up for me!  How embarrassing! :oops:  I can’t imagine what my legs will feel like after tomorrow’s drop sets, although I don’t know if I can get to the gym with the snow.

Lattes were welcome today.

I thawed out shrimp for  a  protein dinner today.  These are the large shrimp. I am now spoiled enough to only buy the more expensive uncooked shrimp.  Guess I had better ask for another raise.

I just sauteed them in a little coconut oil with salt and pepper, with shredded brussel sprouts on the side. 4 ounces of shrimp looks pretty puny, doesn’t it?

It’s funny, I can eat more veggies if they are shredded or cut into little pieces.  Not sure why that is, but whatever it takes to get me to eat more!

I had to catch up some work tonight since it was a tutoring day.  Finally finished and am ready for a snack, which will be some fruit or nuts (haven’t quite decided yet).  I have been doing great with my no nibbling.  It gets a little easier each day breaking that bad habit.

I didn’t really set any goals for February, but now I have to plan out some for March!

Question: How was your February?
